What's in a Name?

As some of you know, I was musing this morning on Twitter about how many of us book bloggers share our name with another book blogger, or maybe more! I decided to make a little list to see how many were out there. Well, the little list turned out to be quite the project! I worked on it all afternoon! I tried to make sure I included everyone and I linked to everyone's sites. Please visit these book bloggers and see why we keep going back. Feel free to help me out if I missed someone! Can't find your name here? Check out- At Least My Name's Unique. :-)
*Thanks to galleysmith for the creative title!

Please visit these wonderful book bloggers! I'm still adding blogs so check back for more!


  1. What a great project. Now I have more sites to visit in one shot. Thank you for doing this and including me.

    Rebeca of Alvahs Books

  2. What a great list! Thanks for putting it together - and even more fun, I see some blogs that aren't in my Google Reader yet.

  3. Wow! That is an impressive list! There is also Rebecca at Rebecca Reads. I haven't heard of this other Tasha. I'm off to investigate!

  4. Wow, how did you find us all? Cool!

  5. Wow, that's a lot of shared names. As far as I know, the only person who's got a similar name to me is Shana of Literarily. But I don't know how she pronounces her name...

  6. what? no more Maries? :-) thanks for doing this!

  7. Only 3 Natashas! I thought there would be more of me. ;) LOL

    Hmm, what about Ruth? I know there's Bookish Ruth and Ruth from Booktalk and More ( --I'm too lazy to imbed the link at the moment).

    Katie is another name that seems really popular--Katiebabs from and Kati from

    Also, one other Kristi: Kristie J. from

  8. Ha! No Bonnie besides me! :) Awesome list.

  9. Very impressive list. There sure are a lot of shared names! Now I'm going to have to keep my eyes out for another Andrea, lol

  10. Thanks! It is so fun to find new book blogs, isn't it?

    Marie- I was surprised there weren't more Marie's too!

    Heidenkind- Thanks for those! I will put them on the post!

  11. Haha! I made the list! I think there is a Christina book blogger too. It's slipped my mind though. Thanks for making the list!

  12. This was so much fun! I'm not surprised there are so many with my name - I've dealt with it all my life. What a lot of work this was for you.

  13. Wow, what a list! Thanks for including me and giving me more blogs to follow.

  14. This was fun! Thanks for putting this together so we could all have a look at who else shares our name. By the way...glad we share the same name, even with different spellings! :)

  15. This is actually really helpful--there are a couple of bloggers I've been getting mixed up because they have the same name and I don't go to their blogs often enough to keep them apart.

  16. Awesome job! I have favorite placed this post as a reference.

    Thanks so much for all your hard work on this project

  17. There's Gwen from Literary License. And me, Gwendolyn B. from A Sea of Books!

  18. Great project!

    I'm another Christina, although you can add me under Chris if you'd like.

  19. That is a very cool list!! Can't imagine how much time that took you Rebecca!!! I'm going to bookmark this page so that I can visit the other bloggers that I haven't been to yet!!

  20. Neat post! I get confused on the stephs' all the time..Seeing how there's only about 2, that's quite a feat! :-D I'm abnormally forgetful..

  21. Wow, I didn't know that there were that many cross over names.

  22. This is fun to look through -- I've noticed this phenomenon as well! Besides me (at The Indextrious Reader), there are more Melanies at:

    Roughing it in the BooksCynical OptimismThe Scrapping Librarian

  23. PS - don't know why those 3 blog names decided to all squish together -- they are 3 separate blogs. Sorry.

  24. I did see some of this -- as a new Twitterer! I can't believe all the work that must have gone into this post!!! Yikes!!

  25. Wow - This is amazing! I was just thinking about trying to start a list of those blogs I follow with the persons name - then when I get a tweet from someone (like yours) I don't have to run to try to find the name! I recognized your pic and the name of the blog - but didn't immediately come up with Rebecca! There are also many blogs on here that I am not familiar with. I will definitely be visiting this page alot! Thanks for all the hard work.

  26. Wow - this must have taken you forever to put together! Thanks for including me. :) And I see some bloggers that I hadn't visited before, so thank you, I will definitely have to check them out.

  27. That is quitet the list. I am shocked that there is no other Cindy's blogging. Interesting. I will be checking out some of the blogs.

  28. Another Jill checking in...although I better be the only softdrink. :-D

    -Jill at Fizzy Thoughts

  29. What a great post, Rebecca!

    I recently found my namesake at Paperback Reader.

    Also, there's another Steph at Steph and Tony Investigate!They're two of my fave blogs. Now I'll have to visit these others that I'm not familiar with. :)

  30. OK, I want to be included too :-).

    (It's hard to search for a blogger by name. I'm amazed what you came up with on your own. There are a lot of authors named Laura.)

    I went out looking, and found Laura at and another one at

    I'm Laura at

  31. What a great list! ^_^

    I am actually surprised there are only 3 Jessicas.... I know sooooo many lol

  32. Such a great post!! I love it .. it gives me a chance to discover and visit new blogs :) YIPPEE!!!
    Thanks for your efforts Rebecca :D

  33. Thank you for all your hard work! This is fun :D I have another Jen for you: A Garden Carried in the Pocket.

    And what about Robins? There's A Fondness for Reading and My Two Blessings.

  34. Great post. Glad to see Im an individual LOL

  35. What a great compilation ... it may keep growing and growing! No other Dawns out there? That's how it was when I was in school, too ... never any of those personalized bike license plates with my name on them!

    Here's another Jill. aka softdrink at Fizzy Thoughts.

  36. Steph (Reviewer X)

    And I see the Robins were already mentioned.

  37. Oh and I forgot to say that this is an awesome list and a great way to discover new blogs.

  38. Wow, what a great list (and idea, yay you!) I'm going to fill out my Google Reader!

  39. What a great post!! And I agree with everyone, a great way to find some new book blogs.

  40. Wow! That's impressive. I'm going to have to come back later to check out some of the blogs on this and your other list.

  41. There's also Mari of MariReads. :D

  42. Another Trisha go to and check out. Thanks for the list, and for including me!

  43. WOW! What an impressive undertaking! Thanks for putting this list together. But I'm glad I'm on the other one! It's fun being the only Tonya (as far as I know).

  44. Thanks so much for the link, and thanks for putting together this great list!

  45. Great list! Here are a couple more:

    Melissa at Shhh I'm ReadingMargaret at BooksPleaseNote that you have the Marie's listed twice!

  46. Hmm, I don't know why it bunched up my comment like that!

  47. Thank you to everyone who has left links for me to add on to the list! It is hard for one person to find everyone, and inevitably you forget someone. And better yet, there are lots of new-to-me blogs to check out! (My Google Reader overrunneth.)

    Avisannschild- Thanks for noticing about the Marie's! I fixed it.

  48. Wow, this is great! I'm happy to be included with my name group, even if we are a little unusual. =)

  49. Wow. Guess it's a good thing I went with Ms. Yingling, although Karen would have been safe, too. I will definitely use this list as a tour guide to visiting blogs. Thanks!

  50. I can't believe I forgot her until now! There's also Annie at Words by Annie.

  51. And, of course, there's me:

    Debbie of Genre Reviews ( and Different Times, Different Places (

  52. There's me, Jill, of Rhapsody in Books

    Another Debbie is from Wrighty's Reads and her site can be found here

  54. These are great posts! I've got to bookmark them so I can come back and check out some new blogs :-)

  55. What a great idea! Thanks to Claire for giving you my name. I would have thought I would have been in the Unique. There are not many Mari's out there. :)
    I do know there is another, however, since I have seen the name on comments at other blogs. :)

  56. that's an amazing list, and I want to be on it too!
    I don't use my first name a lot, but you can add me to the Elizabeth list.
