A long time ago I wrote a post about other people named Robert Sharp. This was prompted by the fact that some guy wearing my name was running for Congress in the USA.
Nothing provokes as much introspection as your own personal homonym achieving something.
For some reason I didn’t link to the pop culture reference point for this, Are You Dave Gorman? Since then I have created a Twitter list of other Robert Sharps, which I tautologically consider to be a form of narcissistic worldliness. Astonishingly the list contains not one but two professional wrestlers. I have actually met Rob Sharp and the world did not explode, and I have also chatted on social media with Robert Sharp. However, a recent Google search threw up a few faces of which I had not been aware. Here they are, in alphabetical order—click on the photographs to read more about each of them.

Yeah, I know, I’m white and in prison for selling crack, it’s a funny story, write me and I’ll tell you all about it. [link]
There are dozens more mugshots of various men named Robert Sharp listed on Mugshots.com. Lots of drug possession, sex offenders and a couple of DUIs.
I don’t know anything about Robert Sharp, other than he lives in Texas, USA and got married to Witney in November 2017.
And finally, this gentleman…
This list operates on strict living Name-alike criteria. No Robins. No ‘e’ or ‘s’ on the end of Sharp. No Roberts or Sharps as middle names. This means that we are spared the mugshots for Garret Robert Sharp, Theodore Robert Sharp and Robert Sharp Bone. But it also means that the beautiful abdominal muscles of Robert Sharpe, Male Model, cannot be featured. Furthermore, I only include living Robert Sharps in this list, so we miss out the many dozens of Robert Sharps listed on memorial and obituary websites, including First World War Seaman Robert Sharp Jnr, and the NASA rocket scientist Robert P. Sharp. Are you a Robert Sharp not yet featured on this list? Maybe you know a Robert Sharp? Is a piece of information on this page out of date? Leave a comment below and I will add or amend the roll call.
