Fun quiz! There are several combinations that would work but aren't accepted and part of the fun was rethinking those. Fackwacker is right. You just have to figure out what name is accepted. I would love to see more quizzes like this.

Perry Mason, Perry Como, Perry Ellis, and I remember when the country humorist and preacher, Grady Nutt, named his son Perry so he could sign his name as P. Nutt if he chose to. I also know two men with the first name of Perry, so it's been around for a while as a given name.

Lenny Bruce is one of the names I didn't know. The others were Dylan Thomas (who turns out is Welsh, pretty sure being American wouldn't help knowing him), Les Paul, and I wasn't sure about Loretta Lynn... at first I was thinking of the Chinese softcore adult film star... then remembered her name was Loretta Lee. I've heard of the country music singer but am not so familiar.

You're too young to remember Les Paul and Mary Ford. They were a singing duo in the '50s and early '60s until their famous divorce. Vaya con Dios is the only song I remember them singing. Lenny Bruce was a comedian from the early '60s who became more famous after being arrested under the obscenity laws. Check out the movie, "Lenny" with Dustin Hoffman starring as Lenny if you want to know more. (Valerie Perrine played Lenny's stripper wife and was supposedly better than Hoffman. I didn't see the movie.) Loretta Lynn was the subject of the movie, "Coal Miner's Daughter" starring Sissy Spacek. Loretta is considered royalty among country music fans.
