My name is Janelle. It's impossible to find gifting stuff or anything with my name on it. I think I saw my name on a keychain once. It drove me nuts growing up because I could find my middle name, Margaret, all over the place. And my mum's name, Janice, is fairly common. So I always figured my name was fairly uncommon, until we moved to a neighbourhood where I became one of four Janelle's all within a three block radius. There was only one playground in the area so we all knew each other. Then we moved and I didn't meet another Janelle until my last month at my old job. She spelt her name the same way and everything. We used to ignore pages to us assuming it was the other one until they started using the first letter of our last names.
My brothers name is Thomas but he never met another Thomas until 2 years into his current job. They worked the same shift for a while so it got confusing but they still confuse people with it when they are together. My dad's name is David. For the last 10 years we've always known at least one other David, and his step-brother is a David as well, but after my dad's step-mom married my grandpa he started going by Michael, his middle name. I have an aunt named Jennifer. I don't see her much and I've never thought to ask her if she knew a lot of other Jennifer's growing up.
