Coming out of a seizure and happily filled with Cafergot, I decided to scout around for some interesting memes to play with. While surfing, I found this cool widget -- is it a widget? I don't know for sure! -- that tells how many people in the US have the same name as you. As if I didn't already know it, my suspicion about my uniqueness is now officially confirmed!

About my first name:
  • There are 6,132 people in the U.S. with the first name Carleen.
  • Statistically the 2397th most popular first name.
  • More than 99.9 percent of people with the first name Carleen are female. (Ya think?!)
About my last name:
  • There are 5,549 people in the U.S. with the last name Ibrahim.
  • Statistically the 6414th most popular last name.

Put them together, and you get this:
LogoThere are
or fewer people with my name in the U.S.A.

How many have your name?

How unique are you?

    What a great idea! I want to try this...I just joined your Facebook Networked Blogs honey..

    I hope that you are doing well...enough seizures already!! Poor thing. You have such a great attitude and that's why we are friends. <3 You ARE a special lady no matter WHAT your name is!!

    Much love, and always Gentle Hugs...

    P.S. I want to 'steal' your "I Love Coffee" button so much, another thing that we have in common. When my friend saw that on here, she said, "Oh Shauna, you just HAVE to ask Carleen if you can snag that", but I didn't hear her cuz I was downstairs pouring another cup of coffee. Just in too much pain to go get the mocha mix, so stuck with dry creamer. Reminds me of work!! :-D

  3. Hi Carleen, Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I hope you do come back... My hubby and I are retired and enjoy gardening/flowers including Roses; hiking/traveling and 'waterfalling';Family and family history; Birds; Photography--etc. etc.etc.

    I am enjoying reading your blog also. You are lucky to have such a unique name. Mine is VERY common since I married an "Adams"... ha

    Thanks Again. Please return.

    *sniffle* I am not unique at all. Over 300,000 have the first same and last name as I do and over 600 have the same combination of first and last names.

    Shauna, steal away! I found on one of the Photobucket groups I belong to. You can just right click on the image and copy the image source, then paste it into a widget thingy. :)

    Sherlock, I think you're pretty unique! I'd plug Sherlock in for the first name and then check the results, LOL!

    Betsy, thank you so much for visiting my blog. I fell in love with all those lilies that I saw on yours and after wiping the drool from my chin, I posted the comment. I think I'll need to keep a box of tissue handy for the next time I visit you. :)

    Rosidah, I think that you will be as unique as I am!
