Enjoyed but this is one that definitely needs a yellow answer box. You could get a tleast half by listing the most common first names

Your idea of common is pretty expansive. Rick is (was?) a common name. Rik is not. Scott is common name. Scottie is not. Several of them, while not unusual, are certainly not very high on the list of common names. It would take a lot of random guessing to get to Victor and Dennis if you didn't already know those answers.
