My gmail is full of emails sent to emails with *my first name+random letters+@aol.com" I don't even own an aol.com email. They are in my gmail account somehow.

Ex: if my first name was "John" the emails are sent to emails like JohnEJ81@aol.com or John@gmail.com and they end up in my gmail somehow. They even have my dads name in some emails.

Anyone else get these emails? What are they? How are they sent to my gmail inbox?
