What about Sean for a common Irish name? I dunno how common that particular spelling is in the US but I would say that would probably be the most common (although not the only way) it is spelled here...

I had no idea about Hank. I thought it was just one of those American names like Chad that haven't made it over here yet.

Chad is a nickname for Charles...

No, it's not. Chas is a nickname for Charles. Chad is a name all its own.

Ha! I got stuck on Eric as Ernie's pal - and I know it doesn't fit the chain but I just couldn't think beyond it - plus my chain broke and I had no idea about the Huxtables' 3rd child (or any other).

No idea who the Huxtable's are either. Also never in my life heard a Henry called Hank. That must be a solely US thing. It's certainly not made it to Britain.

I've never heard of that either. I typed Bart instead of Bert lol

Nice Quiz! But who can explain more about some book named Victorious ? And does that mean it was written by Victor Hugo?

I'm confused by this question and answer. Thanks

So, technically speaking, the Marx author misspelled could be Cral, or Coal, or Czzl, or Cqxl, or Crtl, or Cool since all of those are misspellings :)

Yeah, it is a bit of an uninspired clue

Maybe change to Mr Sagan?

The answer still has to be a first name.

'Sir Guinness' is a very clumsy clue, as that was never his name (and never could be anyone's, unless Guinness is used as a first name). He was Mr Guinness, and then he was knighted, which made him Sir Alec.

You really couldn't come up with a famous Carl with a C? Carl Sagan came to mind immediately.

Absolutely. Nuls points for the clue about Mr. Marks, that really is barrel- scraping
Level 78

Clue for third from last is far too obscure (Victorious), and I agree that there are many famous Carls to choose from...
