List of 10 000 Famous People


I was going through my old files on my computer when I came across a file I compiled of famous people.

I don't know if I have shared this before here but for those people who are still trying to create your PAO, I hope you will find this list helpful.

Cheers.. :)

Thanks! I added a link to this page from the wiki. :)

Edit: the original link may have been lost when the forum software was upgraded. I think these are the files:

Thanks for sharing these. It's too bad I can only conjure up faces for 1-2% of them, but it is fun to be reminded of recognizable characters I haven't thought about in years. What cool image Andre the Giant is!

Hi Yan,
Can I ask you generated this list? Did you export the names from an encyclopedia website?

Thanks for your help,
Clark

Sure... I've added it to the wiki. I also created a password for you so that you can edit the wiki any time. It should have arrived by email. :)

Hi Yan,

Thanks for the list. It is very useful.

I forked my own version and have sorted it by (First Initial, Last Initial) to make it easier to find names. I've attached a copy below and also made a page on my blog which I will keep updated when I add names to the list: http://samvincente.com/list-of-10000-famous-people

I hope people find it useful, and please let me know if you have any objections to me forking your list.

Sam

If you want to look up famous people by their initials, this website's really good.
