OK, I'm sure Forums (or is it Fori) have done this before, but I think It would be fun if Forum members Google themselves and post the first hit. No cheating now, just your full name, no other information. Please say if the first hit is actually yourself or some loser that happens to have the same name.

I'll do it later as I have an odd surname and will get myself I'm sure.

I did this recently and the loser who had the same name as me turned out to be considerably more successful than I had been  - so much more that he had a whole string of stuff to say so, whereas I had nowt
There was only one though as I too have an uncommon name.

I get a side of a girl, who ist physiologist for horses. If you know me only a little, you might think, that could be me, because Im also very into animals... but no horses... I dont even know how to ride a horse ;-)
The most of the next hits seem to be related to her, too.
The first hit for the real me is the 8. one and it leeds to an article from an wild animal shelter-thing, when I had to pick up a big vulture, someone found in Germany (we normaly dont have vultures here...only some (again) in the very south of germany)... there were a lot of articles in the newspaper back then...

edit: whats the url for an english google-site?

Look, I'm going along with this because I'm essentially good-natured: fora is the plural of forum - not my name.  ::)

My namesake is the son of a famous popular novelist (deceased) and one himself - we are related.

Blakey: So if you are related then you have famous relatives. Did doing the search reveal the new relatives or did you know them already.

My husband discovered an American actress who his been in some high budget films as peripheral characters. As there are so few people with our surname she has to be related.

I did Google my board name Rosalind DNA and my real one.

I got loads of sites for both. When I saw my real name it quite frankly spooked me.

NO my surname is the same as Rosalind Franklin's one.
Because her father was a brother of my grandfather.

Oh, I see. So you both share the surname DNA, i suppose that is an unusual surname.
