Is it just me or is it really sad that Billy Ray is the best known dad out of all these?

Really. Billy Ray Cyrus more than Bruce Lee, Steven Tyler, Kirk Douglas, Ronald Reagan, Will Smith, Julio iglesias? He had one song. He's hardly the best known of these.

It's really sad that you feel he is the best known. In reality that is not the case at all

This has nothing to do with how anyone feels. They're obviously referencing the stats of this quiz, in which he is the best known.

The only reason I know about him is Old Town Road. Also I realize the stats in 2015 may have been different, but Will Smith is way above Billy Ray Cyrus now. I think among most people, Will Smith definitely has higher name recognition than Cyrus.

Don't confuse best with best known. I suspect he's only well known because of his daughter's antics which keep her in the news.

Answer percentages will always be biased in favor of recent people. Bruce and Brandon Lee have both been dead a long time. Steven and Liv Tyler are both still around, but neither has done anything particularly newsworthy in the last couple years. Same with Kirk and Michael Douglas, Julio and Enrique Iglesias. In the case of Ronald Reagan and Patti Davis, the differing last names is going trip up a LOT of people as well. On the other hand, Miley is in the news frequently, and her dad is more known for being her dad at this point than he ever was for his gimmicky song.

I did a quiz on famous parents a while back. Hasn't been taken many times and this seems like an appropriate place to plug it.

It was the first thing that popped into my head as I was typing as fast as I could to have the most time for later in the quiz. I didn't actually type it, but the thought was there.

I wrote "Joseph" for "Joe Jackson." Joseph should be allowed since that was the man's legal name.

I agree that Steve Tyler should be accepted. It threw me when it wasn't. He's occasionally referred to as such in the press.

So I get the Steven Tyler and Joe Jackson (because I don't think I've ever heard them referred to as Steve or Joseph), but there is definitely some room for flexibility. Took me forever to figure out Voight (Voigt, Vogt, Voght) and I was really surprised it didn't accept Allen.

For Elizabeth I, we might want to accept someone else. It's been thought old Henry was impotent and his kids came from elsewhere.

Kirk Douglas was born during World War I. He's still full of p and v.
