An example - Google currently returns 2.6 million pages for the search term "Jason BARNARD". This is a fairly common name in the anglophone world... LinkedIn lists some 21 Jason Barnards.
Google images tell an interesting story - Jason Barnard currently in a US jail and is also a 70's teen pop idol, a fisherman, a musician, a basketball coach, an arms specialist, a speedway driver... the list goes on.
Jason Barnard is a mid-way name. Common names like "David Smith" return 436 Million results and over 10,000 LinkedIn accounts. Uncommon names such as "Jack Aldwinckle" return just a few thousand results in Google... and none atall in LinkedIn. David Smith is relatively 'safe', reputation-wise.
