There are 319,521,772 people in the United States of America. If everyone in the U.S. lined up single file, the line would stretch around the Earth almost 7 times. That's a lot of people.
The U.S. Census Bureau statistics tell us that there are at least 151,671 different last names and 5,163 different first names in common use in the United States. Some names are more common than others.
There are 46,200 people named John Smith in the United States. There are 1,005 people named James Bond, 106 people named Harry Potter , 450 people named George Bush, and 32 people named Emily Dickinson. However, Johnny Cash (34 people) songs aside there are, statistically speaking, very few boys named Sue.
