Highlighting Duplicate Rows
I have a spreadsheet with the following columns :
A - first name
B - last name
C - A&B   (full name)

As I key in entries to this spreedsheet, I'd like to have a 4th column that will auto complete upon my entering a name, as to wether this name is a first, or a duplicate further up the spreadsheet.  Is this possible? I've tried to read the COUNTIF or IF functions, and cannot figure it out.  

Thank you for any help!
