Who are you if you Google your own name?

Post by RetroENZO » Sat Sep 22, 2007 10:47 am

Disregarding any entries that may actually bring YOU up... Google your own name and tell us what your namesakes do.

Don't worry about giving your real names but tell us what other people with the same name as you are famous for.

I am...

A cricketer
An actor on IMDB.com
A DJ in Tamworth
An angler
A squash court inspector
A poker player

I'm sure I used to be involved in the Highland Games... but can't seem to refer to anywhere listing me as a tosser any more... :lol:

Funnily enough Woody, it was that post in the "real name" thread that gave me the idea for this thread.

Well I star in many plays at the Newbury Theatre, and I "portrayed Nugget with strength and conviction particularly in the powerful scene, which ended the first act when rider and horse were as one."

Excellent stuff!! I am a star!!!!

If i force Google to do a search on my forename and surname in quotes, i get nine pages of results... but of those nine, everything bar three finds is actually about me! Which is a bit odd, since i only use my real name on a couple of sites so the rest is stuff that has been added by other people, including entries for me or my work on Gamespot and GameFAQs, quotes in press releases at GamesIndustry.biz or Gameinatrix.com (mostly from the releases of GameX where some of my OSG was used with permission and ViColumn) and i've even got a bloody entry on MobyGames i didn't know about!

Far more importantly for this thread though, the references that aren't me are a teenager just completing his GCSEs in Barnsley, eleven people in America according to an American census from 2006 and someone who posted a badly-written, rather poor joke to some online list... actually, that last one could have been me. =-)

It comes up, for my name, with people with jobs in graphic design, a supplier of business information, all the geeky jobs! How funny, since I'm a geek! It also suggested a video on Youtube. I haven't watched it, but has that happened to anyone else?

1. Artist with country, folk, and blues influences!
2. Although he is one of the most successful (and certainly the most respected) tech-house producers on the planet, he is also extremely media-shy. ...

A musical name I think!!!

I am also the immigration adjudicator who ruled that Ronnie Biggs couldn't return to the UK.

And although the three names are in the wrong order, when I use my middle name I am the current Sunderland and Scotland goalkeeper.
