People who "own" their first name?

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.
I immediately thought of Prince Fielder, so I think he needs taken off your list. Haha! (I am assuming you're talking about the singer?)

You get an A+ for copy/paste skill, but a D for creativity.

Always good trivia:

Cleopatra (69-30 BCE) lived closer in time to the moon landings (1969-72 CE) than to the building of the Great Pyramid (2580-2560 BCE).

I worked with a man named Clark Bar and he had a daughter Candice (Candy) Bar.
Bill Lear, famous for developing the Lear jet and 8-track cartridges, named one of his daughters Shanda. You can't help but appreciate a guy like that.

wives who haven't learned not to let dads name babies, deserve what they get. we marry them so there's someone smart in the house. if they fail at the baby naming thing, something needs to adjust.

Sadly, there are people on here that will not get that, some of them even with an explanation.

Had a neighbor once, 5 offspring, 4 girls and 1 boy (GGGBG); the first 3 girls were named...

Some have included Elvis on this list, but two Elvis's come to mind. There is the one we all immediately think of from his glory days at Michigan and now athletic director. Then there is that other one, was into music or theater or film. Something along that line.
