MIT alumni with the name "Joseph Kim"

Since Joseph Kim (or Joe Kim) is such a common name, I wanted to know: How many people with the name "Joseph Kim" have graduated from MIT? So I did a search today and found four names listed in the MIT alumni directory. They belong to the following MIT classes: '90, '92, '98, and '99. That means that within a nine-year period, four different people named Joseph Kim graduated from MIT. I'm guessing there will be many more to come as more people with the name "Joseph Kim" apply and get accepted to MIT.

Next month, I will check the U Mass alumni directory to see how many people I find there.


  1. Hee hee, I just looked in the same database and found thirteen alumni with the name "Jennifer Lee."

  2. Wow, 13 people! I wonder which name is the most common student name at MIT...
