All Things David
Check out the new Toy Box my Mom got for me. It’s got my name on it and everything. I Love it! It’s way better than the plain old toy box I had before. It’s good to have a place for all your stuff, and this way, there’s no mistaking who’s toys they are.

At first I thought she had it made just for me, but I guess I’m not the only David out there. I know I was named after my Great-Grandfather, David C. Stein, and I have an Uncle David, so I figured it was just a family thing, but Mom said there are tons of guys named David. I wondered how many, so we looked it up on Google.
Apparently, David is the 6th most popular name in the United States.There are two million, eight hundred ninety-four thousand, six hundred and seventy-five of us in our country alone. 2.363% of all the guys in America are named David.
Wow. There really ‘are’ tons of other Davids. But I bet there aren’t any other David Steins.
“Well, I knew that was coming, so I looked that up too, and there are 499 other David Steins in the US.”-Mom/Editor
Wow! Who knew?
“Well, we thought ‘you’ might, so we looked up your name, too. They didn’t have a number, but Google said there are very few people in the United States named Jazzy or Jazz, and that you should be proud of your unique name.”-Mom/Editor
“I knew I was special. Thanks Mom, for not calling me the same as eight million other people.”-Jazzy
“You are special honey, and you’re welcome.”-Jen
Well, I figure there’s gotta be something special about my name, or so many people wouldn’t be using it. And Mom said lots of Davids have their own businesses named after them. That’s pretty neat. So, I been thinking it would be cool to collect all the “David” signs and pictures and banners and stuff I can find to decorate my room with.
“Okay. Let’s not get carried away. How about if we take pictures of all the “David” signs, pictures, banners and stuff instead? Then we can put ‘em all up on a wall in your room.”-Mom/Editor
What a great idea. And now that I’ve been noticing, there really ‘are’ a lot of Davids. This is what we’ve found so far, but I’m sure there’s lots more. I’m going to need some help. So, if any of you see a business named David, will you take a picture for me and send it to my Mom at firstname.lastname@example.org? She can print it out and help me fill up my wall.
“Yeah, great idea Cindy.”-Jen
“It’s amazing how quickly these things can backfire on you.”-Mom/Editor
“You shoulda named him ‘Schmavid’. Bet there aren’t any of those.”-Jazzy
Wrong. There’s some guy on facebook named Schmavid, but he’s not from around here.
