    I'm guessing you thought of this thread when you mentioned Eric Cartman in the "Say something about the use above you" thread?

    • Eric Cartman
    • Eric Clapton

    Well, Mohammed is the most common name in the world.

    There is:

    Muhammad Ali
    Muhammad, Prophet of the Muslim faith
    Wasalu Muhammad Jaco aka Lupe Fiasco

    I'm sure there are more, but I can't name them all.

    There is a band called the small victories based in Cardiff, their base guitarist shares my name.

    I also found there is a weird video on YouTube about the James Chant - a way to summons a James.

    Both the link and video below contain strong language.
