The List

Famous People Who Have a First Name for a Last Name

Please note: I am no longer actively maintaining this page.
Please keep in mind remember the following
guidelines for submission:

  1. You may think someone is perfect for the list, but I reserve the right to not add that person
  2. If the person won’t be well known to the majority of readers, I probably won’t use the name.
  3. The name needs to be spelled the same way the first name is. “William” as a last name works, but “Williams” or “Wylium” doesn’t.
  4. I won’t add names if it was a last name first that because “popular” as a first name (“Kennedy” from MTV) unless the line has been blurred (“Graham”)
