An odd mention showed up in my Twitter stream this afternoon (above). What's even more odd is that the aforementioned boyfriend lives two hours from me in Iowa City. I've always thought that my first name is actually more common that most people think (perhaps because I always take note when I see it) but the combo of my first and last is not so much.
Typically, when it does come up (typically in a Google alert) it's somebody in Canada, the UK, or Australia.
Then, there is also a photographer in North Carolina who goes by the same name and has pretty good SEO: Geoff Wood Photography.
I love this bit from his bio:
Teachers were brutal with my name growing up, too.
