Famous People Whose Names are Things



scrabqScrabq on 04/10/2010

Editors Award Winner
Editor's Award Winner

This quiz has received an Editor's Award for excellent content. Only the most unique and well written quizzes are eligible for this award.


FamousPeopleWhoseNamesareThings Photo I have found in the Chambers and Collins dictionaries - the old fashioned kind, the ones where you actually turn pages to bring up a new "screen" - definitions of words which are also the names of famous people. There's recently been furor in the British Scrabble ranks about a new version of Scrabble that will allow people's names.

This quiz will use words which are allowable in Scrabble, even though they also have the form of a proper noun.

See how you go with these and remember them so you can beat your spouse/grandchildren/neighbour/best friend when next you set up the Scrabble board.

Enjoy!
