Using LAST NAMES (EXCEPTIONS – SEE NOTES) and NO PUNCTUATION, name all 10,000+ of the most famous people in history according to MIT’s Pantheon Project. Read naming notes below quiz. You can sort the people by overall rank, or view by Occupation/Country of Birth (present-day geography) – Occ/Country are sorted by overall rank. Rank for this list is based on a number of factors, a major one being popularity of the person on Wikipedia across all languages. ‘*’ denotes females. This quiz MAY RUN SLOWLY on older machines. NO TIME LIMIT.
Favorite this Quiz!
NOTES: NAMING – Many people with last names have just those accepted. Popes, Kings, Queens, etc who have a name with a Roman Numeral are accepted in the format “Charles” will answer “Charles XI” and “Charles V” for example – you do NOT need the Roman numeral. Many alternate or simplified names are accepted – i.e. “Alexander of Europe” would allow just “alexander”. You can see the 50 least guessed answers you got and 50 highest ranking ones you missed by choosing “50 Hardest” and “50 Missed” in the bottom of the rank listbox *after* you enter your name to save scores.
