Mensagem: 

Which preposition should  use when referring to 'list'?

 

Is you name on/in the list?

I have 100 names on/in my contact list.

 

'on' sounds more natural to me, but I wonder why not 'in'..since the name or information or whatever a list is made of, is obviously part of it...'in' it....Am I wrong?

thanks in advance
