www.192.com have found at least another 200 people in the UK with my name.

it only found 2 with one of my daughter's names.

As long as neither of them are offspring of the Beckhams you're on safe ground.

The chief inspector of a large Scottish police force, who is about old enough to be my father. And, yes, once I was stopped for speeding in said town and tried the 'don't you know who I am? Do you know who my father is?'. It didn't work, my English accent let me down

An American poet, the MD of a leading American technology company, and a USAF priest

I used 192.com as I wouldn't know where else to look.
I am unique it would seem (at least in the UK)

An Australian tv presenter is the only famous* one.  Lots of ordinary ones, though.

*famous in Australia, if nowhere else!

Mine is the pits. Two main characters appear. One is a specialist in erectile dysfunction it seems, based in USA, whilst more locally the other namesake is a Conservative councillor on Lincs.

I read somewhere that within reason you can change your name to almost anything you like, so I would consider using Demon Barber for all purposes! My actual name is fairly boring and as you can probably guess my handle on here is a play on my actual name.

I share my name with a Film Producer. He produced Ace Ventura, Wanted, Unbreakable.. nothing amazing. But then I noticed recently that he also produced one of my favourite flicks ever.. True Romance.

Top two on Google are a senior lecturer in Romanian History and a barristor. Plus 128 people in the UK.

I don't think I come up on a good search - well I hope not as I've tried to remain hidden!

Film editor of the Full Monty, the founder of a firm of solicitors that bears his (our) name, the screenwriter of 'Carry on Columbus' and the Puerto Rican 1500m record holder.

 This is me after losing 130lbs...not by running but having a gastric band fitted..

a former Major league baseball pitcher, and a late Victorian author of horror and mystery fiction (he wrote using my name as a pseudonym) who in his day was as popular as Conan Doyle.  I have 2 of his books - bought as gifts and never read either!!!

using my full first name, I am also a well known Irish ultrarunner

My maiden name used to be unique on Google, and can't see anyone else in the first five pages or so, so I guess it's still true. I use it as my professional name, so linked in etc have flooded google with crap links.

My married name has a bare four pages on Google, mostly to do with running, and it looks like there may be one other living in Texas.

I seem to be pretty unique in the UK - there are about 9 of me in the USA...one of the top CEO's of Loreal...and some high ranking managers...and also a lady who takes off her clothes for gentelmen's magazines  (Parade!)

If you google images my name - that lady is the first image - my own is on the first line of the search.

Only famous one is a former Wales Rugby Union International and coach but over 200 on 192.com.

Google tells me I'm spelling my first name incorrectly when using my maiden name. It changes it to the male form. There are 2 entries on 192.com, but both of them are for me

I don't share my name with anyone as my first name is a made up name by a scottish author for one of his characters and so you only really find it here (Lorna) - although it was in one of the lethal weapon movies - which is the ONLY time my name has ever been in a movie that I have watched. My second name is also unusual - also scottish and yet a quick google reveals no others in the UK.  Or maybe there is just too much of me on the web because there are so many bloomin links to me - pages of them, that it probably hides others.

A dead opera singer and a satanic murderer.

Somebody on here uses my real name as his forum name. Freaks me out when I see his posts!

A famous producer of westerns, when you google my name it comes up with about 15 bloody pages of him, I think I would have to be a serial killer to move up into the top 10 pages.

An old flame of mine is a one off
