        Name Usage (given Names of Stricklers)

For those of you who have wondered how many other Stricklers may be out there with your name, this list will help give you an answer. Names are ranked by occurrence not by alphabet. In instances where same names have different spellings (i.e. John, Johann & Johannes; or Henry & Heinrich) the count reflects the total number for that name regardless of the number of spellings. With German and Swiss names the initial name of Hans or Johann is not used in this count and the second name is used. For instance Hans Heinrich Strickler is counted as Heinrich (Henry) Strickler. There will be a total listed that does include all the names with the prefix of Hans. The same is done with the prefix of Anna for the Germanic names. Keep in mind this list is taken from available records in the Strickler database. An actual accurate worldwide count of names is impossible at this time.

Also note that the number of occurances listed for Hans Strickler reflects the number of times that name is used as the primary first name.

This list also includes the most popular middle names for each given name as well as the earliest date for which each name appears of record. By far the most common middle names are Franklin and Anna. Followed by Mary, Jane and Henry.

This list is by no means all inclusive of every individual name in the Strickler database but does include the majority of names popularly used thru the years by the Strickler family.

This data was pulled from the databse on 12 March 2004.
