Never heard of George Vancouver, but it was the only "V" city I could think of in the Pac Northwest. I learn something new everyday doing these quizzes.

Never heard of George Vancouver....? Whaaaat? Next you'll be telling me you've never heard of George Chicago or George Toronto.

Isn't Vancouver on the North EAST side of the Pacific Ocean? That threw me off, I thought of cities in Japan starting with V

It's from a north american perspective, it's on the west side of the north american continent and is by the pacific therefore "pacific northwest".

Pacific america is the west coast and atlantic america is the east coast so "pacific northwest" actually just means west northwest

I tried to type in Groucho but it did not work. Had to type in Marx in order to get it to work.

Groucho will work now.

Maybe more spellings accepted for Johnathan, tried Jonathon, Johnathon.

Interesting fact that can help with spelling-- Jonathan is not a derivation of John, but rather of the name Nathan.
+2
Level 66
May 25, 2021
Nathan and Jonathan are related but different names, the latter "Yonatan" in Hebrew and the former "Natan." They both come from the Hebrew root "to give."

Only got 6. All the ones I got were called George. Although I should have got Genghis Khan.

Is Genghis Khan a name. I'm pretty sure is Temujin's title.
+1
Level 61
May 25, 2021
He was born Temujin, but took the name Genghis upon his declaration of emperor, and gave the Khan name to his family. Meaning it's both a title AND his name.

This may be a reflection of my own biases and interests (because I only missed these two), but I'm surprised more people knew Ivanisevic and Norman than Zhukov. I've never heard of the golfer or tennis player before, but with all the history and WW2 buffs on the site (I thought), seems like Zhukov should be pretty well known. Most decorated officer in Soviet/Russian history.

Not to buy too much into the hype but you could argue the man did more than any other to defeat Hitler.

Level 67
Sep 29, 2016
Yeah. I was somewhat surprised by that as well. I expected Zhukov to be among the low answers, but to be so much lower than the president and tennis player is weird, i think.

Level 83
Sep 29, 2016
You're surprised people knew George Washington?
+1
Level 63
May 25, 2021
I've never heard of Zhukov, but as I'm a big tennis and golf fan, the other two were easy for me.

I read Angry Scottish *chief* and was trying so hard to recall if a character from Braveheart had a name that started with G...

Vitus Gerulaitis also had a powerful serve. I kept thinking I was spelling it wrong.

Pretty sure Vitus Gerulaitis doesn't have the initials "GI."

9 Georges + Giorgio and Georgi. 11/22 It's halfway to a George initial quiz.

Thank you, agreed. Remembering how to spell a Croatian name from the 90s is not easy

When seeing the thumbnail: "Oh, cool, Gwyneth Paltrow, one easy answer for sure"

Answering the quiz: "Shakespeare in Love, 'GP', wtf, who's this"

When I first read the name of this quiz I thought it read People With Genitals. Would have been very easy if that were true.

Same here :D

But I dont think it would have been easy, there are roughly 8 billion people who fit that description, would be difficult to find all of their names...

I'll take "George" for 800.
