Little error with Shaq QM, answer pops up a Shakur rather than O'Neal. Hehe, Shaquille Shakur... :)

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.

He was born Ron Artest, legally changed his name to Metta World Peace. So it is in fact his real last name now.

I think Sexy Vegan should be on this list. Literally this guy (who had a pretty bad birth name to be fair) has changed his name to Sexy Vegan
