Data scientists found that Facebook siblings in US of all ages had a high likelihood of having the same first initial. During the study, data scientists analyzed the decisions parents make when giving their children unique names.

They compared users listed as siblings with random pairs of people with the same name. The study found that siblings have an 11 percent chance of having a name with the same first initial compared with seven percent of random Facebook users.

Twins have an even higher chance of being named with the same first initial, said data scientists on a Facebook blog.
