I only got the historical ones plus Calvin Klein and Chuck Norris: Chaplin, Dickens, Che Guevara, Jung, Carl Lewis, Charlie Parker, Vanderbilt, and Yeager. I guess I'm just not hip enough for these. Maybe some day...

Isn't Charlie Parker nicknamed just "Bird" (as opposed to "The Bird")? I'm surprised no jazz enthusiasts have swarmed this comment section yet...

What's with this site's obsession with Lindbergh? Almost any excuse to put him in is taken. Coulda had Carl Linnaeus, Carl Lewis, C S Lewis...Even, heavens, a woman - Christine Lagarde. Lindbergh wasn't even the first to fly the Atlantic non-stop.

it's hard to tell if you're joking or not. Charles Lindbergh was probably the most famous person in the world during his lifetime.

My father frequently recalled Lucky Lindy as an all consuming national hero when he was a 5-year old in 1927. You're the first one I've ever known to mention Whoever Lagarde.

There seems to be an excessive number of actors in this quiz in my opinion. Weird to see basically no political figures.

Could use more women, too. There are definitely more than five women on the planet with C names.

yeah but if we just open up the phone book and start listing people with feminine-sounding names that would make for an exceptionally difficult quiz.

Claudette Colbert was also a silent movie star, I think. She came to my mind first

The only silent film Claudette Colbert starred in was an unremarkable flop and is considered lost.

Nope, like camus said, she only did a single silent movie. Paramount signed a contract with her in 1928 specifically because they were looking for stage actors who could deliver dialogue in the talkies, and that's what started the majority of her film career and the entirety of her film fame.
