Each of us is unique in our own special way. Unless you're an identical twin, there's some physical trait that only you have, even if it's something as small as a freckle. Even if you are a twin, there's something on you somewhere your sibling doesn't have. What may not be unique to you is your name. Chances are you know at least one person who has the same first name as you. For example, Ryan is pretty common and I know a few other Ryans, which includes one of my close friends. You may even know someone with the same last name as you that's not a relative. That's especially true if your last name is one of these 25 that are the most common here in Indiana.
