Now the US population has reached the 300,000,000 landmark, many environmental bloggers have waxed lyrical on what this means given US consumption patterns and energy use and inevitably comment along the lines that "the last thing the environment can afford is more Americans" Here and here.
But how many have worked out how many other US citizens have the same name?
Given the British continued obsession with class I would prefer the title "How common am I".
Name Number of US citizens
Robert Elliott : 2,458
Matthew Cole : 791
David Maddison : 4
I blame my Scottish roots and the fact the Americans like the name Bobby. For that I blame Dallas (the TV program and not the place).
