The Name Game

Yesterday, while time wasting instead of writing, I stumbled across Is This Your Name? website. Check it out. Just type in your first and last name and the website will fill you in on extremely important information, like how many people in the USA share your name, the percentage of vowels, your name in pig latin, your personal power animal, and your name's origin and meaning. 

According to the website, I'm the only American with the name, Keri Mikulski, and my personal power animal is a hippopotamus. :) How about you? How many people share your name? What's your personal power animal? 

Phillies Fever is at an all-time high here in South Jersey and my friends and family are torturing me (I'm a huge Yankees fan). While the Phillies are one game away (actually three and a half innings) from winning the World Series, Derek Jeter is spending his off time with his newest galpal actress, Minka Kelly. Something else I was researching yesterday instead of writing. 

What are you *cough* researching right now? ;) 

Congratulations, PJ Hoover. Her new novel, THE EMERALD TABLET dropped last week. I can't wait to check it out. :) 

Have an amazing day, everyone! :)

There are over 1000 people with my name, one of whom just got promoted to run the YMCA or something because I keep getting notifications about her. And my power animal is the Sumatran Orangutan. Like, duh. I knew that. ;)

Hi, Carrie! Wow - over 1000 people with your name?? Any other authors? And the Sumatran Orangutan? :) Love it.

My personal power animal is the Arctic Lemming. Woo hoo.

Thanks for this site! I'm going to use it on my blog in the future!

keri mikulski :) said...

Hi, Justin! That's interesting.. :) I have to go look up a Lemming. :) Off to story time. :)

Brooke Taylor said...

LOL, my personal power animal is:

Desert Dwarf Mongoose

Something tells me they are fiestier than they sound!

Suzie said...

I cant wait to try the name game thanks

PJ Hoover said...

Thanks so much, Keri!

Laughing as I grew up with a long Polish maiden name (way more letters than Milulski and hence the origin of the J in PJ), but my mom had the same name so I was never unique. We did have different middle names.

beth said...

My name is wayyyyy too common :( but that was fun!

Tabitha said...

There are 55 other Americans with my name, my power animal is the mule, and my Numerology is #1.

The mule?? Seriously?? How boring is that? :)

Angela said...

Congrats PJ!

It said there were 4 americans with the same name but only my blog posts came up on the search; so I must be the blogginest!

Alyson Noel said...

There are 3 Alyson Noel's, I am well envowled, and my personal power animal is a giant anteater!
Rock on!

Stephanie J said...

I'm the only Stephanie Janulis (I've checked that before) but I need to dash off and check the other information! I'm so jealous that the hippo is your power animal...they are my absolute favorite!

random tidbit: my word verification today was "bible"...I don't think I've ever seen an actual word!

Stephanie J said...

Apparently my power animal is the Naked Mole Rat. I dare someone to get something worse than that.

keri mikulski :) said...

Hi, Brooke! A Desert Dwarf Mongoose.. :) Love it.

Hi, Suzie! Enjoy! ;)

Hi, PJ! Congrats on your release week! I was on Amazon today to order and TET already out of stock! Yay!

Hi, Beth! Really? :)

Hi, Tabitha! Yes, but mules have starring roles in many important events from the past.. And they're hearty and strong. :)

Hi, Alyson! You do have a bunch of vowels.. An Anteater? Love it! ;)

Hi, Stephanie! A Naked Mole Rat?? Hilarious.. :)

keri mikulski :) said...

Hi, Angela! You're the most famous Angela C.! ;) Lucky. I love monkeys. ;)

~Virginia~ said...

thanks for that link! apparently, 47% of the letters in my name are vowels and it proclaimed that i am "very well envoweled". too cute. my animal is a White-lipped Peccary and i'm thinking i don't even want to know what that is. :)

keri mikulski :) said...

Hi, Virginia! Very well envowelved.. Cute. A white lipped Peccary?? :) Hmmm.. Glad you liked it.

Dru said...

Since I know my first name was made-up, I'm the only one with my full name. My personal animal is the Loch Ness Monster.

I posted the rest on my blog.

Meredith said...

My power animal is the Peruvian Pelican, but since I don't like birds, I went back and put in my middlle name too. I got the Amazonian Manatee, which is much better in my opinion.

Only about 90 Americans have my name, they guesstimated. That is pretty good. And with my middle name added, I am the only one!

keri mikulski :) said...

Hi, Dru! I'm going to check it out now.. The Loch Ness Monster is interesting. :)

Hi, Meredith! Yes, the Manatee is better. :) Even though, pelicans are cute.

TJ Brown said...

564 people have my name. One of the things to come up was my book trailer:) And my name means Summer:) I'm down with that.
Teri

Barrie said...

A roughtail stingray?? I'll have to google that to find out what it is. Find site!

keri mikulski :) said...

Hi, Teri! You're the famous one. :) And summer - that's a nice meaning. :)

Hi, Barrie! Interesting.. :)

Alea said...

According to that site there is probably only one person with that name, me! That was fun!

Yan said...

Phillies fever here in Philadelphia is crazy...everywhere I turn I see red. People have lined up at Modell's at 5 AM in the morning to buy a Phillies Championships sweatshirt and the line went from the entrance and back around again...

Kaitlyn said...

Wednesdays still suck. Nothing to do now. Hint hint.

keri mikulski :) said...

Hi, Yan! I know.. My sister in law was in a line yesterday at 5 a.m.. It's great for the city. :)

Hi, Kaitlyn! Happy Halloween! Are you going to the party?? ;)

Beth said...

oo, my animal's a giant otter! cute. not as original as the others, but cute. my number's 8. im the only one with my name, but i knew that from before also...theres another website, i think its something like "homanyofme.com", that tells you how many ppl have ur first name, last name, and the combination. no interesting facts like this one, tho.

HylianVampire said...

My personal power animal is the European Red Squirrel
My 'Numerology' number is 5. I am adventurous, mercurial, and sensual. I seek growth through adventure and different life experiences. Although i am a critical thinker, you can sometimes over-ponder an issue.

wow!! that last part about the over-pondering something is 100% true!!! all of its true... yay!!
i was hoping for a bird for my power animal, though...
I'm the only person in the US with the name Moriah David. Of course.

that was so fun :)

keri mikulski :) said...

Hi, Beth! Otters are cute. :) And an original. :)

Hi, Hylian Vampire! Another original. :) And a red squirrel.. Fun. :)

keri mikulski :) said...
