Famous Boys Named Sue & Girls Named Michael

|My curiosity about the popularity of quizzes focused on famous given names: Famous Jacks and Jackies, Famous Roberts, Famous Orenthals, et al, and the manner in which they spanned the topic board - (Athletes named Steve, Characters Named George, Famous Americans Named Kelly, et al) was peaked recently when I completed a quiz on my own first name, "My Life As a John & Welcome to It!" The quiz stalled at about 30 takers before it was pushed off the General Trivia board by a flush of new titillatingly, tantalizing trivia quizzes. Was the introduction too long, much like this one, for those with ADD or short-term memory loss? Has the well of famous Johns just been tapped to exhaustion? Was the range of Johns covered in my quiz too esoteric for even the most elite sploofusers? (Though a quiz that travelled from John the Apostle to Johnny Ramone, from John Ratzenberger to John Lithgow might have challenged even them!) Who knows?|
So, I decided to sell out! Forget writing about my own life, my own thoughts and reminiscences, I am going to muddy my hands and your minds in the most popular type of search that doesn't include the word 'best' or the word 'top'....
Well, almost. Welcome to Famous Boys Named Sue & Girls Named Michael! A trivial departure from the search for gender typecast given names of the great majority of men and women to those androgynous appellations of some equally pretty famous folk.
