My friend Patty on her Blog Pattyville wrote about how many Patty Leighs there are in the USA, so using the website www.the dailymeme.com I decided I needed to find out how many Janet Gutierrez's there are.
Well I'm distressed! There are 581,003 Janets in the USA, it's the 89th most popular female name. And believe it or not 99.9 % of those named Janet are female! Who knew?
As to Gutierrez, thanks to the invasion from Mexico, there are 156,365 Gutierrez's in the USA. Mac's family came from Spain in the early 1900's and say they're not responsible for all the Gutierrez's from Mexico, that's a result of Lt.(Teniente) Gutierrez, the 2nd man off of Cortez's ship in the 15oo's. Gutierrez is the the 199th most popular surname in the USA. And unlike Patty Leigh who is only 1 of 2 in the country, I am 1 of 296 Janet Gutierrez's. So much for being unique.
At the top are a few of the 296 Janet Gutierrez's who aren't me.
