People who "own" their first name?

Yappi

Name people who have a monopoly on recognition for their first name. These would be people who have a first name that if someone mentioned it, everyone would think of only that person.

Some examples:
1. Jesus
2. Elvis
3. LeBron
4. Prince
5. Madonna

These need to be real first names, not nicknames like "Babe". They can be variations of their first name like "John" for Jonathan.

There are a few Mikes that this could have worked for if there wasn't so many iconic Mike's : Jackson, Jordan, Tyson
