Have you ever been mistaken for someone else? Someone calls out your name, you and another person answer at the same time. Imagine having that feeling nearly everyday of your life. Blame your parents!

If you plan on having children, do not give them a common name for their sake. Such names would be Noah, Will, James, Logan, Mason, Ryan for boys or Emma, Olivia, Mia, Ava, Taylor, and Cheyenne for girls. Having unique names would be less confusing for the child when he/she goes to school and can tell if the teacher is calling for him/her.

Say your group of friends consist of two Logans. They may have a hard time telling which they are talking to. From personal experience its hard to tell if someone is referring to me or another Ryan, since we have at least 3 Ryans in the school.
