What is the most common first name of people you know?

It’s fun searching my address book by first name, because I can see how many people I know with a a particular first name. Here’s the most popular in my address book:

  • 8 Amy
  • 7 Jennifer
  • 7 Lisa
  • 7 Tim
  • 6 Peter
  • 5 Jason
  • 5 Mary
  • 5 Sarah

I did it by exporting my yahoo address book into a csv file, copy the first name column, paste it into a field on this word frequency indexer.

Comments are very welcome, please leave a Reply

Actually, Amy shouldn’t be at the top of my list. I was going from names in my address book, and I have three amy’s from high school that I put their info in from a contact book that was given out at our 10th year anniversary. (Anniversary? Is that the right word?). And Lisa should be #1, cuz I didn’t count one person who went by the name of “Lesa” in college only cuz there was another Lisa in her class. But now Lesa goes by Lisa. So there should be eight Lisas and just 5 Amys. 3freester
