Classes you've seen with more than one of the same name?

[name_u]Alex[/name_u] (f)

5 [name_u]Elif[/name_u]’s in my class of 20 :unamused:

[name_u]Jordan[/name_u] (b)

Ruby, [name_u]Holly[/name_u], [name_f]Hannah[/name_f], [name_m]Jacob[/name_m] and [name_f]Isabella[/name_f] are the ones I remember; I’m currently in Sixth Form and there are two Mollys and three Graces.

Polina - 4 in a class of 28
[name_m]Alexander[/name_m] / [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f] - 3
[name_m]Ilya[/name_m] - 2

My 8yo niece is [name_f]Eva[/name_f] and at her cubs there were 5 in one group last year. Such a shame cause it was a family name and she was the first child of my siblings so I don’t think anyone was anticipating the popularity!

When I was at school


As a secondary teacher now, I’ve had 2 or more of these in classes together-
[name_u]Unique[/name_u] :weary:

My school was very multicultural so the names shared by more than one in a class were of African/Arabic/Asian origin:

Asia (various spellings)
[name_f]Sadia[/name_f] (various spellings)
[name_f]Aaliyah[/name_f] (various spellings)
[name_u]Iman[/name_u] / Eiman
[name_m]Mohammed[/name_m] / [name_m]Mohammad[/name_m]

Names more common in the Western world included:

[name_u]Niall[/name_u] / Nyall

In primary school I had a small class but there were 2 girls called [name_f]Freya[/name_f]. I think there were 2 boys called [name_m]Owain[/name_m] in the year below me too. I really didn’t pay attention to other years so can’t comment.
In secondary, there were around 120 kids in my year. 4 boys were called [name_u]Dylan[/name_u], 3 boys called [name_u]Evan[/name_u], 3 boys called [name_u]Cameron[/name_u], 3 girls were called [name_f]Megan[/name_f], 3 girls called some form of [name_f]Lily[/name_f] (all spelt differently), 2 boys called [name_m]Ioan[/name_m], 2 girls called [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] and 2 girls called [name_f]Freya[/name_f] (not the same 2 as before).

I teach at a very international university, and I’ve had classes with multiples of:
[name_f]Anastasia[/name_f] (various spellings)
[name_u]Maria[/name_u] (I had one class with 3 different spellings of [name_u]Maria[/name_u]/Mariia/Marie - pronounced [name_u]Maria[/name_u]).
[name_f]Ksenia[/name_f] (various spellings)
[name_m]Dennis[/name_m] (various spellings)

Growing up in the US, I had multiples of:

I was sometimes in classes with another Julia in school, and given that there were about a million Katherines and Katies at my school I’m sure at one point I had two in a class but I don’t remember. In college I was in a class with, if I recall correctly, four people named Alex of various genders.

I’m a teacher, and in terms of my own classes I’ve had multiples of:
Jaden (different spellings)
and one class I had a José, a Joey, and a Joel which definitely was more confusing than having two of the exact same name.

Where I live, [name_f]Emily[/name_f]'s run rampant :slight_smile:

There are five Emmas in my year

I teach in a smaller city that borders [name_m]Boston[/name_m]. The community is very diverse.

I’ve had multiples of:

Liliana/ [name_f]Lilian[/name_f]
[name_f]Isabella[/name_f]/ [name_f]Izabella[/name_f]
Variants of [name_f]Rose[/name_f]/ [name_f]Rosa[/name_f]


In my very small high school of about 100 kids (only about thirty of which were girls), we had four Sarahs, three Josephs, three [name_m]Daniels[/name_m], three Michaels, two [name_m]Matthews[/name_m], two Emilys, two Avas, two Zacharys, two Dylans, two Aidens, two [name_u]Collins[/name_u], two [name_m]Justins[/name_m], two Erics, and [name_f]Caitlin[/name_f] and a [name_f]Kaitlyn[/name_f] (plus a [name_f]Kaylin[/name_f], as well as a [name_f]Kayla[/name_f]).



[name_f]Maddie[/name_f]/Madison/Madelyn (various spellings)
[name_u]Payton[/name_u] (various spellings)
[name_f]Makayla[/name_f] (various spellings)
[name_f]Caitlin[/name_f] (various spellings)

Benjamin (sometimes 3+)



If we include full grades, then [name_f]Emma[/name_f], [name_f]Mary[/name_f], and [name_f]Kate[/name_f]/Katie- several of each.

The grade above me had four Hannahs! We’ve always had more than one [name_f]Emily[/name_f]. Also lots of [name_f]Sophie[/name_f]/Sophias and Jacks! We also have lots of Audreys!
