If you give Astaire before I've typed the "e", why can't I get Engels when I forget to type the "s"?

Because the "e" is not pronounced.

"Flo-Jo" probably shouldn't work as a type-in for "Sprinter known as Flo-Jo".

Franz Ferdinand isn't a great one because Ferdinand is just his second name. His surname would be "Austria", and I don't think he'd ever initialize himself as FF.

I'd suggest using Frederico Fellini or Frederick Forsyth instead.

His surname would be "Austria"? As funny and obviously wrong as that idea is, I'll still point out that royals typically didn't have surnames in the traditional sense, but rather belonged to a house. Ferdinand is casually used as his surname, but if you want to be nitpicky you'd probably say his surname is Habsburg.

Franz Ferdinand Carl Ludwig Joseph Maria von Österreich-Este - in what way is "Ferdinand" a surname? It's the second of six first names.

There are two letters missing, and really nothing comes to mind regarding FU initials, but it's a shame you didn't use Filippo Inzaghi as an answer for FI. He is extremely famous football player, World Cup winner, double Champions League winner, he is arguably even more successful than Lampard. If Lampard can be used as an answer, sure Inzaghi can be as well.

Fred Thompson is some very niche trivia. I remember him mostly from Law & Order. I'd be curious if anyone outside of the US knows who he is.

Well, I am assuming he came in third place for FFs likely to be included. Franz Ferdinand and Francisco Franco seem more logical.

Interesting. They give you F and R - all you have to do is add the middle letter and it gets accepted.
