As long as it's not weird or horrible, definitely a good thing. Speaking as someone whose name is the opposite of unique.
Ha, now other forumites can stalk you on power of 10...
Character in Ben Elton's book Stark. I wrote to him a couple of years before the book was published, to ask if I could get tickets to see Saturday Night Live (which he organised for me), so I'm guessiing my name was in the back of his mind.

I share mine with a gay pornstar. Apparently he started his career as a 'bottom' and then moved on to be a 'top'. I am not sure if that is a promotion or a change of positions. It was my best mate who found this out whilst bored at work one day and after 5 years he is still feckin laughin.
When I say he was bored I don't mean he googled my name, I mean he was watching gay porn and stumbled across the actor. Well that is my standrad retort to the tosser who only shares his name with some television presenter.
And kk to save you time trying to search for the gay films just to see me in the buff Maxpower North West isn't my real name

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
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!

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