    Unhappy

    Why is Mike such a common name? Does anybody know? If you do, please tell, because I'm stumped.
    (and so are the 20+ other Mike's I have met in my lifetime)

    Thanks,
    Mike

    I have no idea what you mean, its the parents choice to name the child what they want. Just like yours, so dont come crawling to us saying that a parent named their child the wrong name, its just common sense.

    <speaking with a big grin> Unlike some people Mike, I feel for ya. When my parents named me Stephen it was an uncommon name. Shortly afterwards it seemed like every other person was naming their kids Stephen or Steve or Stephanie. I have pondered this for some time now (2 minutes) and have come to the conclusion that after seeing what a great child I was (and still am according to my wife and daughter) they decided to name their children after me in the hopes that some of my goodness would rub off on their kids. This is probably what also happened in your case.

    <laughing hysterically at BCK> Yeah... right... I'm sure that's what happened.

    Mike... Concider yourself lucky to only have met that many I lost count at around 100 (and that was just in my highschool) of the number of people I have met who are either Kate or Kathleen. Then, to make matters worse I have to go and Marry a David, him I feel sorry for, worse still his last name (Moore) is also common. In the town he grew up in (somewhere in NJ) there are/were 5 other David Moores.

    I don't think Mike's that common. Dave's a common name though - everyone knows or has a friend called Dave!
