I know that feeling, when I returned to the UK many years ago, I was put into a school class that had 6 Davids in it. David, Dave, Davey, Ed (from surname), James and Jimmy (both from 2nd name)

One company I worked at was obviously running the ark.

2 Daves
2 Steves
2 Shannons (one boy one girl)
2 Marks
2 Jimmys
4 Johns
a few other pairs of names totaling about 20 people out of a total work force of 35...

In graduate school all the speech pathology students dated their way through the engineering department. At parties it seemed like all the boyfriends were either a "Steve" or a "Dave".

I once took a class with 5 students: 3 Daves, a Paul (which was my father's name) and a Lisa. We informally called our final video project "The Dave, Dave, Dave, Dave, and Dave Show."

My daughter is called Lisa :) A name you hear quite often over here. But the names of my other 2 daughters, Yoko an Oonah, are really rare. My husband chose Lisa's name and I the two others. My name is not that common over here as well.
A lot of Jan's and Dirk's. My father in law is called Jan and my father is called Dirk.

If I would have been a boy, my mother would have called me Wesley and my sister, Sofie, would have been a Vincent...

Speaking of ice.......
I dunno, but I think this is a bit more than even the kittyman would consider.
Kinda spooky, doncha think?

Freeze dry your deceased pet?
