Christ isn't a last name, it's a title, and historians would disagree with your assertion that he never lived.

99% guessed Jesus. 90% guessed Lennon. That proves that the Beatles were not more popular than Jesus.

Sweet...i get to be the first one to complain...Ahem...here goes...Christ isn't Jesus' last name! Despite 98% of quiz takers getting it right, Him being the most guessed answer, AND displaying his picture on the quiz, i am STILL going to complain. How dare you, Quizmaster, offend my sensibilites and everything I stand for. Now make me more quizzes! There...i took care of it...now nobody else has to worry about it.

Vidav, don't start. If you're an atheist, fine, but don't take it to the comments and tick off half the people who read it (unless you want people to give you hate spiels). And quite frankly, nowhere in the quiz does it say these have to be real people. If JB was Jason Bourne, you wouldn't be complaining about that, would you?

'Hate spiels'? Surely not! Not from a Christian? :o)

He did. The historical person existed. Whether or not he was son of God is under debate.

His existence is also debated. though kind of a boring debate, IMO, given the lack of evidence on either side.

Sure it was, and his middle initial was H.

I'm just amazed I got the football question right.

But the quiz doesn't suggest the persons' second names are their surname, or even their last names.

Would be interested to know the origin of the name? I'm here to learn things that I don't already know :)

Johnny Unitas? The origin is that his parents named him Johnny. Oh! You mean Jesus? Christ comes from the Greek "Christos" which is an honorific title which means something like "Messiah" or savior (whether that savior is meant to be spiritual or military is under debate). So, Christ wasn't Jesus last name. It's more again to "Alexander the Great" where "Great" is an honorific title. In this case, Christ means something to the effect of "Jesus the Savior" or "Jesus the Messiah".

Justin Bieber isn't even close to being cool enough to make up half of Tenacious D. He would be like, 1/13th at best.
