Where am I?

I made an amazing discovery tonight. According to HowManyOfMe.com -- I don't exist. Now isn't that a warm fuzzy feeling?! It isn't quite so disconcerting, though, as my family is reassuring me that I really do belong here in the USA.

How many have your name?


For those of you who are brave enough to find out how many of you there are out there -- check it out! But don't take the statistic too seriously...I'm not!

Great site -- and guess what!?! I must be one of a kind, as there's only one of me!! But funny how they would have my name but not yours as we seem to have alot in common. :) You must be the USA's best kept secret!!!

There were 255 of me but none of my husband... but I know full well that he's here every bit as much as me! Like you said, you can't believe it entirely. But it still is an interesting thing to learn.

No Bethany Wissmans??? That's a sad thought! BUT, we all know you're here... even if "they" don't.

I'm so totally with you, Bethany! All of 0 had my name. Guess that makes me one of a kind...

So glad that statistic is wrong. What a tragedy it would be if there was no Bethany Wissman!!!

(((hugs)))

Neat post,Bethany! I've decided to make 288 (# of JC's) my "lucky" #:)Your "Satisfied" post was really good as well! J Conner

What a fun post idea, Bethany! And for there being none of you in the US...you sure are a creative person for not really being here!!!:)

My first name is one of a kind, and it even tells me that it is not found in their database, besides that the name is relatively uncommon. But there are 3,300 people with my same last name as me! I'm not sure what that would make me?!

Isn't it great to know that we are all 'One of a Kind' in God's eyes! How thankful I am we aren't all the same(though being like you wouldn't be all bad!:).

Thank you for such a neat post!

Love your blog, Beth! This was my first visit, and I hope to come back often! God Bless!

lol, that was funny, there are 4 of me in the US. Hmm, I guess I am not as special as I thought I was. ;) Oh well, I also wanted to et you know that I started posting some pictures up again on my picture blog. So if you want to look at it it is www.reformedgrlspics.blogspot.com

There are actually five of me. Four other poor souls had to go through school and college signing that whole name. Oh well, I guess Swiss-Austrian-(German?) names are supposed to be a challenge.

And I'm pretty sure you do actually exist. I've seen you. And talked to you a little. And heard you sing. And bought CD's from you. You get to be one of a kind. Congratulations.

That is a neat quilt you are making. Some consider quilts a genuine art form. I agree.

Wishing you the best.

There are zero people with my name! I was suprised though, that the website said there are 330 people with the last name "Sarensen". My great-grandfather's name was "Sorenson", but he changed it when he came from Denmark because it was too hard to explain. I didn't think there were any other families with the same name as us. It was fun visiting that website! :)

Isn't it great that God knew your name before you were born--so what if no one else knows!
