Yeah same here, that was the only colleague to have it so far, I just didn't appreciate being asked to dump my name (especially since I'd been there for some years first), it's not difficult for people to manage

From the top of my head, the amount of guys I've studied or worked with my first name in the past 7-8 years... about 2? This is gonna make it sound like I have a rare first name, but nah. Maybe it just isn't as common with people born between 1990 and 1994. So I guess my name is becoming an old man's name?

My 2nd given name, however, is quite popular and I've met many guys with it, whether as a first or second name.
