SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/21/11 -- What's it like to share your full name with a President of the United States? As the U.S. celebrates President's Day to honor George Washington and Abraham Lincoln's birthdays, WhitePages (www.whitepages.com) discovered that only 21 adults in the U.S. share their full name with the 16th U.S. President and only 870 adults share their full name with the first U.S. President. Only .0001 percent of U.S. adults share their first and last name with a President of the United States with the top three most commonly shared full names being John Adams, John Kennedy, and Andrew Johnson. The least commonly shared names with U.S. Presidents are Franklin Roosevelt, Millard Fillmore, and Harry Truman. President Barack Obama's name is not shared with another adult in the U.S.
The list was compiled using WhitePages' people search contact database, which offers trusted contact information for more than 90 percent of the U.S. adult population, including landline phone numbers, mailing addresses, and a growing number of user contributed email addresses and cell phone numbers. The data discovered more parents named their children after a fictional character than after a U.S. President with names like Peter Parker (206), Robin Hood (227), Ronald McDonald (400) and Lois Lane (162) being more common than many carried by famous U.S. Presidents. However, the data showed that the first names of many U.S. Presidents are still some of the most popular names amongst U.S. adults with John, James and William being the most popular first names and Lyndon, Rutherford and Barack being the least popular first names.
