    Have you ever met someone named John?

    Perhaps once.

    Last year I went to Goa. We took a taxi to the Mangesh Temple. The name of the taxi driver was John.

    Are you just inquiring about Johns? Or do you count those with the name 'Jon' and those who shorten their name from 'Jonathon'.

    When I was in 5th and 6th, two of my classmates were Sunil Pathak and Sunil Zutshi. Also I have a friend of mine Sunil Ojha.

    Simply John.

    My old milkman (who incidentally came by motorcycle) was called John.

    Yeah I picked up a hitch-hiker called John. We stopped at Adelaide Oval and he stepped out saying, "Excuse me, I have to go fix something..........."

    Have you ever met someone called Kalekarshu?
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Is that name Mr Mxyzptlk something special (abbreviation) or just a random name ?

    Despite the fact that EVERYONE calls me Eddie, I am a John.
