    How popular are you on ebay?

    I was board the other day and thought what the heck why not try this.....

    go to ebay

    make sure all cat etc is selected and type in your surname and click search.....

    my surname gets these resaults from www.ebay.co.uk (as i live in the uk)...

    "3667 items found for XXXX" i have stared it out for obvious reasons.

    how many items do you get?

    6681. I'm clearly significantly better than you.
    Not a suprise though, I share my name with Bruce Lee, Jerry Lee Lewis, Lee Evans etc.

    Not telling you what my surname is.

    Millan isn't part of my name (looks like you typo'd on that one).

    Searching for part of my last name isn't the exercise proposed here, its searching for your last name, not a butchered portion. If My last name was "samsoneleque", would you propose I simply use "sam" as the search string?

    ah yes its millman sorry my bad, took one quick glance and saw millan.

    and the answer to that question would be...

    it wouldnt hert to experience trying different search strings. experimenting is interesting as you never know changing the strings entered into ebay might show you some interesting products being sold relating to a name.

    Hmm. My family name was changed by my grandad about 60 years ago, when it wasn't very fashionable to have German-Jewish names for some reason.
    0 results for Losky.

    Oh, and if I search eBay.com instead of .co.uk for Lee, my surname, I get 29928 results. And Mr Simpson, 22107 at ebay.ca

    Do I get to proclaim myself the king yet?
