Weekly Puzzles #2 - Names Edition

RULES

There are three puzzles, each sets of seven clues. On the first day, I'll release one clue for each puzzle. The three puzzles range from easy to hard and you have to find the thing that connects the clues. If you think that you know the answer, put it in the comments and I'll tell you if you're right. If you want to figure the puzzles out yourself, don't open the comments. This is for fun. Clues will be added around 5:00 PM UTC/12:00 PM GMT/9:00 AM Pacific daily. You can guess once after each clue is added and all guesses after that will be ignored.

I think this is wrong, but before the answers come out I will guess.

3. First two letters of Name or Initials are letters that either come before or after each other.

That limestone appears to be Kota Limestone so KL

There is a Stepladder, so ST

Aaron Burr is AB

Bicep Curls is BC

That shade of red appears to be Turkey Red(idk if light impacts it) which has TU

Noah has a NO

Nicki Minaj has NM
