Here's the banner text from http://ww2.howmanyofme.com/
There are 299,968,595 people in the United States of America. If everyone in the U.S. lined up single file, the line would stretch around the Earth almost 7 times. That's a lot of people.

The U.S. Census Bureau statistics tell us that there are at least 88,799 different last names and 5,163 different first names in common use in the United States. Some names are more common than others.

There are 49,535 people named John Smith in the United States. There are 1,048 people named James Bond, 113 people named Harry Potter , 503 people named George Bush, and 31 people named Emily Dickinson. However, Johnny Cash (39 people) songs aside there are, statistically speaking, no boys named Sue.

How many have your name?

ZERO people. As in... not even me. I don't exist.

Yup. :)

Though, their faq says 10% of each of the groups of first and last names are missing from their DB (ie, probably the least common ones).

Apparently they've never heard of Geltner before. Which just goes to support my claim - if you meet someone named "Geltner", chances are they're related to me.

The closest name I've run into before was Gilder.

It looks like Sam brought the name to TX, since you and Sam are it.

Out of the DPS records for Florida, Idaho, Iowa, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, Texas, and Wisconsin, only 25 of you guys exist.

There's an author with Sam's name that wrote an autobiography about their childhoot years in the early 1900s.

I found he graduated UNT in 2000 and that's about it. DPS says he's 6 years older than you.

Otherwise, Sam's got a pretty light footprint on the intarweb.

Amazingly enough, out of the same states, there are only three people with your full, maiden name. Drop the middle name and there are tons of you.

You're a little more visible than Sam. Your work phone number is on the parent university for your company. There are a couple of baby forums with your name on them.

The problem with having a unique name is that by tossing it out on the net, I was able to find your maiden name, your home address, your work phone and company, etc.

You're welcome to delete/repost without your last name if you're paranoid yet. :)

Holy frijoles that's a lot of easily accessible info. :-O That and you're quick with the sleuthery.

Some of it helps that I'm curious. I've always been into telecomm though. I remember dialling BBSes in elementary school. I had an internet account in High School. I registered my domain in... hrm.... either 1994 or 1996.

Conveniently, there's a site that, given proof that you're a citizen on an approved state, you can get access to the previous year's publicly accessible data, without having to use a modem or walk down to the county court.

I used to do the BBS thing, too! It was so full of mystique to me... I dunno why. I guess it was the idea of sharing ideas and such with some faceless, anonymous souls out there in the ethers somewhere. And having to wait a day or two for a response was part of the fun! It made actually reading responses that much more delicious (I am such a dork). I think I had a Prodigy account by my senior year in high school... Did you ever buy one of those WWW site directories - a bound book much like a phonebook? Haha! I remember it was like 300 pages. I though WHOA that's a lotta sites. @@

And if you ever feel like divulging this informational treasure of yours, email me. ;-) I LOVE stuff like that.

Oh yah. The first edition of the Internet YellowPages. hehe. I have an old guide to using the internet, and it's 50% unix manual for newbs. :) I remember finding out about alot of Rave info in the early 90s on Gopher. :)

My treasure troves are google and publicdata. Everything else is creative searching.

And LOL - you make Sam sound like Typhoid Mary. XD

I've also heard of Gertler, Gilner, and of course Gellar. But Geltner is a new one for me (well, relatively speaking anyway - har! No pun intended!).

har har har. :) Yah, it's pretty unique. I'm assuming it's Germanic?

Yep. "Gelt" means "money", and "-ner" means "man of...". Ha.

(Deleted comment)
I've talked to one while working at my previous jawb. :)

there's 12 people with my name in the U.S. I'm everywhar!
