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.
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.
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

Somebody on here uses my real name as his forum name. Freaks me out when I see his posts!
Maybe that's his real name too... or maybe he IS you. Spooky.
Now I'm left wondering who that might be? As long as it's not Fat Buddha or Mr Puffy?
I share my name with an Australian Rules Football player and a character from a series of Sci-Fi books.
My name gets over 100 million results on Google, nothing on me in the first 10 pages although I did notice that the domain name I had for a while is now in use by someone else with my name. Should probably have kept that and tried to sell it.

Ooh we could have fun with this one
Can you imagine if your real name was Colin McLaughlin or Karen Samuels or something? All your mates would think you were mental! Luckily my guy doesn't post too often or too controversially.
It would be amusing if they were a complete arse.
What disappoints me about this is that it suggests you are a bloke and not a beautiful powerpuff girl in a green frock.

The week and the weekend are different in many ways!
Nobody...but my Mum is Sandie Shaw and my husband is Nick Kershaw. Mainly I leave my own name well alone
If it turns you on I will wear the frock in bed Sweetcheeks x
that's the most romantic thing anyone's said to me since supercaz offered to get her boobs out on the dating thread.
