Not very common. Met one other Hank in my life and I lived in Nashville TN for 6 years. Only time you saw it on TV or movies was as a bad guy or a dog. Then came King of the Hill. Was worse for me since my last name is Hill...
Altough my name is Hendrik everybody knows me as Henk, wich is the'same as the U.S. name Hank. Henk is a common name in Holland.
We named our boy in March Beckham. We aren't soccer people, but loved the English sound to it! I hope he likes it as much as we do!
