Googleganger

Definition: Googleganger


Similar to a doppelganger, who is your physical twin, a Googleganger is someone "with the same name as you whose records and/or stories are mixed in with your own when you Google yourself."

True story: When I started dating my boyfriend, he Googled me, only to find someone with the same name as me who wrote awful amateur love poetry. Luckily, he liked me enough to see past the terrible poems — at least until he told me he saw my poems, and I explained that I merely had a Googleganger!
