    What a fun thing to do!
    I share a surname with a famous Australian (in history) so the first hit is a school named after the famous man.

    The highest ranking person on Google News with my surname is a player with the Minnesota Vikings.

    If I google my whole name, I’m a founder of a community kitchen serving meals for the needy, a professor of sociology, a lawyer, and a medium.

    It’s also fun to submit your name to Google Images, and see all the other “yous” out there.
