so i just looked this up (on the internet, so i know it must be 100% accurate):
there are fewer than 100 people in the united states with my first name and last name... if you use "Dave" as i usually do. (I wonder if they actually have a given name of "Dave"? i guess maybe they do... but mine like most dave's i suppose,.. is "david"
if you use "David" there are more like 2,000 people.
so, i might not have been quite so surprised to see David.... but Dave? yeah, kinda surprised. and again,i dont think you see Dave very often as an official given name, so it just seemed like a pretty big coincidence to see it in connection with my last name.
