Full name (no inverted commas): First hit, a manga version of Hamlet.  I may have to buy it.

Full name (with inverted commas): I share with a round the world sailor so I get her autobiography.

First name alone: Very popular book by a 19th Century female author...lots of it!

No hits on my login name...

My name w/o quote brings back a scrabble toy as the first hit   :o . Just my first name brings up a boatload of arrangements of a particular classical piece.

Apparently I teach a form of lacemaking!
My cousin's memoir of love and loneliness while raising a child with multiple disabilities will be out on Amazon soon! Know the Night, by Maria Mutch, has been called "full of hope, light, and companionship for surviving the small hours of the night."

First name, song books.

Last name, books of woodblock prints.

Both names, a list with a mix of the above two! I had no idea that someone with our last name was a woodblock artist.

My name comes up with a series of mystery books with an author who has the same first name and a hyphenated last name containing my last name, and  PH. D. in education who writes about teaching.

i share a not-common-at-all last name with a horror/fantasy author, so all my name brings up is his novels.

I have to admit I'm curious what the toy is, but I know of at least one brand that uses women's names for the different models, so it's probably not that uncommon an occurrence.

For my full name, Amazon actually has a novel I self-published back in 1990. Presumably some of the relatives who felt duty bound to buy it are now putting their copies up for sale. :)

For just my first name, the top result is the mp3 of a song from the '80s with my first name as its title.

There's no use doing a search with just my first or just my last names, as both are dirt common. Using both names, I get 1,175 results. Using first name, middle initial, and last name I get 177 results including Prison Break Season 1 and some movie called Relax, It's Just Sex.

The first hit to my name is the same as one of Mexico's' Day of the Dead lead female figures. Then I got a bunch of accessories with my name. Then other decorating things.

A movie called "The Definition of Insanity" and a couple of travel books.  My maiden name pulls up umpteen religious books.

My first hit comes up with the short story collection I'm in.  I'm kind of happy that it does that.  All the profits of the book goes back into making sure the website that the people who run the collection happen.  :)

I then get a lot of biographies and other things on Frank Schubert.  Fun!

The first hit on my first name is some sort of Christian guide to energy- fossil fuels and the like, not spiritual- and how energy affects your life as a Christian. Or something.

The first hit on my surname is my father's (out of print) textbook.

I am likely the only one in the world with my combination of first and surnames, so no hits on my first name and last name for me.

First+last names = no hits

First name = DVD's of recently cancelled, Emmy-award winning for Best Comedic Actress series AND DVD entitled "Bikini Girls from the Lost Planet" (yeah, right.  Put me in a bikini and they'd be trying to lose THAT planet real fast!)

Last name = I have a distant relative who is an NHL hockey player - bunch of stuff signed/about him

Forum name = nothing, but it is one letter off a type of decorative stone, so lots of hits for that

Hmmm, I must come from a long line of talentless people; not a single hit on my maiden name. I share my married name with an author of medical textbooks, but he's not related to my husband.

My first name, I get results for an illustrator of primarily children's books, and also a country musician whose limited availability CDs are priced around $40.

Not surprisingly, nothing for my full name. I'm kind of bummed the results were so limited; I was hoping I might see something that would spark a new interest. Oh well.
