i read the 'Are you Dave Gorman?' book on holiday- he has a bet to find 56 other Dave Gormans (a full pack of cards and jokers) + ends up travelling to Norway, Israel, New York, Venice and loads of other places to find them with his flatmate Danny Wallace. It is so incredibly funny and just really stupid.

anyway it made me think, how many people share your name? I've not found any with mine- although I'm about to search google for the phrase "my name"

I tried that site and it said:

"You don't exist. Go and look in the mirror. If you see something then we're wrong else you're some kind of magic pixie, elf, carrot or vampire. Sorry. "

Lol!

There are 688 Robert Wallaces in the UK alone! nice
It's annoying having a common name though when you know someone with the same name and conversations regarding you or him get mixed. I went to school with another Robert Wallace and there was often plenty of confusion.
