I have seen quite a few, often women who put their first names on them. With all of the psychopathic stalker types out there, why would you pay extra to let them know exactly who you are?

Yes, itís a dangerous thing to do. A stranger can walk up saying ďDebbie, Hi!Ē and theyíll stand there thinkibgvegetevfo I know him from, when itís a trick. They earn kids about this, cause pedophiles have stalked kids Facebook pages (by pretending to be a kid), they know her first name and where she goes, when her softball game is, and approach using her name, saying heís a friend of her dad or whatever, and the kids are vulnerable.

I noticed today one of my coworkers has her first name on her plate, and itís a very uncommon name. I might be paranoid, but I wouldnít do it. To be honest I donít see the purpose.

In Alaska it's called a personalized license plate and I have one. Need did not factor into my decision.

Every State I have lived in here in the U.S. charges an annual fee for such a plate. $20 here in Montana.
Even if you are an Amateur Radio Operator, and want a plate with your call sign on it for identification in an emergency, $20 thank you.

$30 in Alaska. I could get an Amateur Radio Operator license plate, but if you have someone's call sign it's just a few key strokes and you have their name and address.

My wife's daughter has had her first name personalized license plate for going on 20 years. Never a problem. Some people are just paranoid.

Yes you can. Most real estate records are online and their are all sorts of free and paid people searches also online in the US. And with his name it would be a pretty easy search.

Why though does she even want her name out there to strangers? What is the reason she wanted it?
