    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.

    Please take one final moment before replying to a question to make sure your comment has been placed in the comment section instead of the answer section.

    There are two choices and they are clearly marked::: Add a new answer or Comment this answer

    Clonge, I don't mean to sound harsh, I'm only being honest. You have been a member of akaQA for several years so you should know how to distinguish between the Add a new answer box and the Comment this question box. Most of us on akaQA still tend to make this mistake occasionally including myself. However, it's an ongoing occurrence and it happens way too often when you post on the forum. It takes a split second to look and make sure your comment is going in the correct box before you hit the button to send it on through to the forum.

    Thank you for your cooperation

    I forgot to mention above.




    When a member places an answer on the forum that should have been admitted as a comment, or if an answer is posted multiple times, due to clicking more than once during slow reaction time from the akaQA website, what happens more times than not is that the person receives excessive karma points from another member who is not paying attention to the duplicated answers he/she has already voted up. Although this is an unintentional mistake, sadly there are members who recognize the multiple answers/mistakes (made by a single person) and purposely gives the member the extra points.


    The members (a couple of them) who do this deliberately, are being spiteful and childish. They have been members of akaQA for over five years and they know what is acceptable on this site and what is not acceptable.

    Although this may seem like fun and games to the people who do this on purpose, what they fail to realize is how unfair they are being to the rest of the members who continue to remain very cautious as not to place a comment as an answer or to answer a question multiple times.

    ( Please do your part by making sure you do not cater to the members on this forum who show such a lack of respect towards their fellow members who do their best to be honest on this forum.

    Thank you

    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..>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<..

    Clonge

    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.....

    mycatsmom

    Terry mentioned Dave .
    jhharlan

    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.

    Clonge

    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.
