Having a famously named ancestor has been a real boon to The Pittman Family Tree and Tracks of My Texas Ancestors...my Genealogy Blog. Just think, how many folks will Google George Washington today. Shoot, I bet every Elementary School kid in American Googled George Washington last week for the traditional Cherry Tree Choppin' Essay!
You know TODAY they are thankin' George for the day off. Their teachers are...I know...I was once an Elementary PE Teacher who sure was glad to have a day off in February from West Texas' Brown Norther Dirt-Sleet Storms. Of course they hit the day after Presidents Day.
Anyway, back to George's Stats!
Did you know that there are 1,458,990 people in America named George? And 99.46 percent of them are MALE. That makes me wonder about the .54 percent. Are they FEMALE's named George or Georgia or Georgina?
Of those Million Plus George's...882 of them have the last name Washington. They rank right up there with 189,221 other folks with the last name of Washington. Like George of course, Booker T., Martha and Denzel.
Thankfully, my Mama and Daddy picked Sue...named after nobody they knew or anyone famous in 1947. Since then there has been one famous Sue that I know of....A Boy Named Sue! Thanks Johnny Cash....I really needed that!
Since I brought up the GOOGLE Name Search Thing, I thought you might like to know How Many Of Me there are today. Yes, there are more Sue's in America today...
173,766 people in the U.S. named Sue. Statistically the 361st most popular first name. More than 99.9 percent of Sue's are FEMALE...thanks to Johnny Cash.
Wanna know How Many Of YOU there are? Here's the website...HowManyOfMe.com
Thanks for the Day Off!
