Probably don't need to provide partial answers for the three that are currently fill-ins. Each of those titles is well-known, and the clues are obvious enough. Otherwise, very fun. Didn't know the football team, but got everything else.

it seems odd that you won't accept Reg Dwight, which is how he was known prior to his name change, but you will accept half of his name. Either half, either Reginald, or Dwight.
