Tetsuya is not only quite common in anime, but in Japan in general as well.

Only characters I know that are named Ichigo are the ones from Bleach and Tokyo Mew Mew. I'm sure there's at least one other Ichigo I've seen, but I can't quite remember that one for some reason.

I agree with Sakura, Rin, Makoto, Yuki, Yui, Hana, and Alice. Can't really remember any other names I've seen a lot in anime outside of those.

A few possibilities:

Those two pages of results aren't anything compared to the 31 pages for Sakura, for example.

Mine has to be Kota or Koda however you spell it. So many shows with males having that name.

Names that end with senpai, san, or kun, are just way too common. Don't you think?

It seems that you covered all the bases for first names, and now I will do last names. Overused last names are Tachibana, Suzuki, Sakamoto, Honda, Kanzaki, Miyamoto, Amano, Kirishima, and Yamato just to name a few of them.

Sakura is overused to death. It is the #1 most common name based on all that I've seen. Heck, I've actually met girls named Sakura as well and there aren't too many Japanese in my area.

Overdone in the other sense (as in crazy name): Kiss-Shot Acerola Orion Heart-Under-Blade
