    Among your acquainences, male and female, what is the most common first name? For example....

    (acquaintances) I know 3 Michaels and 4 Christines. You can include friends and family members too.

    The question did not ask what age group. To satisfy your curiosity, late 30's to late 70's. :))

    Paul, Michael, John, Steve.  For women, Linda, Raquel, Diana, Maria, Eva.

    John,Gary,Jack,Dave,Adam,Mike..>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<..

    Maybe I'll ask about surnames. Hmmmmmmmm....Goolagong, Wanganeen...?
    mycatsmom

    There was a singer named John Gary . And how bout Mick Dundee ? ;-)

    Nobody has said David or James or Mark, all in my life. My family it’s Scott. In women it’s all spread out.....

    Terry mentioned Dave .

    Dave and David are two different names. I know davids that get upset when called Dave
    mycatsmom

    Dave is a nick name for David
    jhharlan

    A shortened form. A great deal of people do not like their names touched. Joseph G for one and David L for another.

    I seem to know a lot of Michelles and a lot of Steves. I also know that if I'm instructed to deal with a particular person at a business for example, a "Tyler or Jordan or Ella" will probably be younger and a "Gloria or Joan or George" will probably be older.

    That's surprising. I thought you might answer Donald, Scrooge ( McDuck), and Huey, Dewey and Louie.

    I met a preteen female named Alphie. I didn't know it\s a unisex name.
    Clonge

    @CB: Is Alphie Hispanic? Maybe it's short for "Alphonsa", the female version of "Alphonso"?
    country bumpkin

    Moderator
    I doubt she's Hispanic. LOL
    Clonge

    CB: I was just kidding. "LOL para dos."
    sunnyB

    I think hear in the UK Alfie is short for or comes from the name Alfred.
