My name is more common than I know

My given name (only used by cops, and people who don't know me, save from documents; which is to say, mostly people who think my first name is Sergeant), isn't all that common.

"X" is the #4xx most common male first name

0.022% of males in the US are named X.

Around 26950 US males are named "X"!

First, they assume (correctly) I am male. Ok.

As for the other, with so many people sharing my name, the only one I've met was my grandfather.

The only other one I know about, was a pop-philospher in the 1920s.
