Few small issues on this quiz - Tolkien and Napoleon are spelt incorrectly. And the correct version isn't even a type-in. (And Napoleon had a surname, Bonaparte) Secondly, when you say "First name", that usually refers to the personal name (written before the family name in western languages). And the last name usually means the family name. So the entered name for Kim Jong-un should be Kim, and it should be Mao for Mao Zedong.

"Ivan the Terrible" wasn't his first name. His first name was just "Ivan".
