Writer's Block: Same Name|
Have you ever met or known someone who has the same name as you (first and last) but is not a relative?
Never met him, but there was another Dave Budd at Man Uni. We used to get each other's payslips and emails etc.

Yep! Strange as it may be there is another woman out there with my Christian name and maiden name, which I used to use for writing, and since they're both fairly unusual, the surname particularly so, I was very surprised to find her. I mean, how many women called Geraldine Messenbird would you think you'd find
A few years ago I was googling my name, because I couldn't remember the name of a certain website, and felt pretty confident that it wouldn't throw up anyone but me, when I found her. Her surname is by marriage and she couldn't be more unlike me, since she's very interested in football.
Nowadays I use my hyphenated maidenname-surname for my writing, since I'm pretty sure there isn't another one of those out there.
One of my friends here had a friend at her previous University who had the same name as me.
There were two people with my dad's name who worked for the same company, though the other one was in London. They also used to get each other's payslips etc. occassionally. When my dad took early retirement last year, the company originally sent my dad figures based on the other Peter Craddock's salary/length of service etc.
