On the other hand, there are more than one person named Fred Milton, so one should be very careful in interpreting the number of Google hits as any significant number regarding a specific person. 

Just for fun I Googled "Martin Olsen" and got about 4790 hits. Of course, Martin Olsen is not an uncommon name, and I suppose only a couple dozen of the hits are really *me*-hits.
