I came across the following citation in a manuscript today, notable because all the authors share a surname:
Huang X, Huang Y, Huang T, Huang W, Huang Z. Individual pulmonary vein imaging by transthoracic echocardiography: an inadequate traditional interpretation. Eur J Echocardiogr. 2008;9(5):655-660.
I wonder what the odds of that are? To calculate them, we’d have to factor in the number of people in China [authors’ country of origin], the number of people named Huang in China, etc. Even if it’s a really common surname [which it is, according to Wikipedia, which knows all and is always accurate], that’s still unusual.
P.S. Huang/Wong is pretty popular, ranking seventh after Wang/Wong, Li/Lee, Zhang/Chang, Liu/Lau, Chen/Chan and Yang/Yeung. Names are fascinating!
