Honestly he's only famous because he headbutted another soccer player and altered versions of the video/gif went viral online. People made memes about it. That's the only reason I've ever heard of him. Other than that, he's would just be a forgettable sportsball player like all the rest of them.

Well, considering Football is the most popular sports in the world and him being one of the best to ever play the game, now also being a successful coach, you're quite incorrect. You should actually try doing sports, I've heard it's fun and healthy.

It’s all clear now thanks. For a second there I thought that Zidane was a coach at Real Madrid, named Player of the year THREE times, won the Ballon d’Or, as well as many trophies such as the Champions League and the Serie A League. So before saying comments like this I suggest doing some research.

.....won 2 succesive champions league as a coach at arguably the best team in the world.....got to the final of the world cup....was the star of france.....one of the G.O.A.T.... so he is a bit more than a meme

A fake one belonging to a moron. His real name is Ron Artest. He's a basketball player currently with the LA Lakers. He is best known for running into the stands and punching a fan several years ago.

It's not fake. That's his legal name. Nicknames don't go on the back of NBA jerseys. That would be the XFL and its stars like "He Hate Me".

I THINK the concept is celebrities whose first names bring to mind specific people - the name Geraldo is semi-common in certain parts of the world, but we associate these first names most strongly with the answers in this quiz.

I'm a little shocked that Usher's last name is the least known on this list. Kevin McCall says it in "Deuces" and Usher has an album called Raymond v. Raymond. That's just my opinion though.

I hadn't heard of any of those except Picabo. I remember watching her in the Olympics and I was surprised to see that her name wasn't spelled as it sounded, "Peek-a-boo". Had she not had such an unusual name I probably wouldn't have remembered her the next day.

One of these is very much not like the others. You really think Geraldo is an unusual name? Try plugging that name into Wikipedia and you are prompted with at least 7 articles on people with that first name. That's not saying the others are full fledged celelbs, just that the name occurs with some frequency through history. At least all your others are pretty rare. I didn't actually try to others but think maybe Miley might prompt a few.
