Amazingly, I have never heard of anyone whose real name is "Wilmont" with an 'n'.

I was bored at work and entered in Wilmot on msn and found the site.  I had no idea there were others out there like me.  I have never met another Wilmot and am in constant battle with the "n" being inserted.  Now I will no where to direct the morons that cannot spell my name.  Eternally grateful I am truly yours, Wilmot Irvin (wilmot@litchfieldrealestate.com, 18 October 2003)

For the longest time I thought my grandfather, father and I were the only Wilmots anywhere and now i find others just like us. Not only just like us but persons with Wilmot surnames. This is too much. (Wilmot E. Roberts III 8/6/99)

Wilmot Li writes: I just met my first Wilmot (Kidd) last year at school. Through a stroke of tremendous good fortune, we ended up in the same Physics class on Classical Mechanics, and went on to take Quantum Mechanics the next semester, during which time we became much better acquainted. Mr. Kidd remains the only Wilmot I've personally met. (6/3/99,6/23/99 - Mr. Li tells me that he was given the name Wilmot at birth because it sounds like his traditional Chinese name: wei-mau.)
