Same Names or What Are The Odds?

I have 8 children and 3 children-in-law:  Sariah, Ryan, David, Teresa, Miriam, Ruth, Tom, Deborah, Joseph, Andrew, Benjamin. 

My work unit has 8 people besides me: Jalpa, Natalya, Joseph, Mary, Rachael, Theresa, Matthew, Ruth.

One set of 11, another random set of 8 -  4 match/near matches.
It seems unusual to me that such small name pools have so much similarity


  1. I don't know which of your list are yours and which are add-ons, but we overlap on three names - Ruth, David and Deborah :)

  2. My children-in-law are Teresa, Ryan & Tom.
