Fun quiz, but I wasn't surprised when I saw Cortez, the quiz creator, is from the UK.
Feb 13th, 2013 at 04:14 GMT
I believe that "Perault" should have two "r"s, not one.
Feb 13th, 2013 at 04:19 GMT
Darrow. Yep, that's the one I missed too - cleverly decoyed with Charlie Parker(Bros).
Feb 13th, 2013 at 04:26 GMT
It's refreshing when a quiz shifts the center of cultural gravity toward the eastern side of the Atlantic.
Feb 13th, 2013 at 04:30 GMT
Parker tripped me up for Monopoly, and Macintosh tripped me up for the computer one; I guess I should stop going with the obvious answers.
Feb 13th, 2013 at 04:30 GMT
As of this date the Charlie who is and always has been the Rolling Stones drummer is being guessed correctly at just over 50% ??? Ooh, that hurts.
Feb 13th, 2013 at 04:43 GMT
@BamaRainbow Yep, you're right. Thanks, I've fixed it :)
Feb 13th, 2013 at 06:51 GMT
I'm not sure if by Christian name you mean their birth name or their most commonly used name, but Chaplin was born a Charles, and his credits listed him as both Charles & Charlie interchangeably.

Charlie Chaplin, rather famously, never applied for American citizenship and retained British nationality throughout his life. That's why it was possible to exile him from the US by revoking and refusing to issue him an entry visa, which was ultimately what caused him to cut his ties with the US. The description in the clue is badly wide of the mark.
Feb 13th, 2013 at 11:34 GMT
Great quiz but I suppose I would say that...
Feb 13th, 2013 at 12:37 GMT
I got 20/20, after some very lucky guesses, mostly of the form "this name kind of sounds French"
Feb 13th, 2013 at 12:43 GMT
Shakespearean is misspelled.
Feb 13th, 2013 at 12:51 GMT
Thank you for omitting Charles **arkley variations.
Feb 13th, 2013 at 13:57 GMT
You might want to reword the de Gaulle clue. As it is now, it makes it sound like he is the very first French President. I'd put either "served as first President of the Fifth Republic" or "served as French President". The second is less wordy.

How much wood could a Sporcler called Chuck chuck if a Sporcler could chuck wood?

No Chuck Norris?
Feb 13th, 2013 at 19:41 GMT
I agree, where's Chuck Norris??
Feb 13th, 2013 at 20:59 GMT
It should be 'Stewart' not 'Stuart', its one of the great clans of Scotland
Feb 13th, 2013 at 21:02 GMT
Apologies, it can be spelled 'Stuart', however the other spelling is the traditional and more common spelling

As noted in the first comment I'm from the UK where 'Chuck' is not used. The quiz was originally called 'People named Charles or Charlie' and the title was changed when it was recommended. As for Stuart, that spelling is correct as James I and VI changed from Stewart to Stuart on ascending the throne of England in 1603.
Feb 13th, 2013 at 23:29 GMT
I couldn't possibly have been the only one who mistakenly thought of Clarence Darrow.
Feb 14th, 2013 at 10:34 GMT
Um, why isn't Chuck Norris the answer to every one of these???
Feb 19th, 2013 at 21:46 GMT
This isn't a complete quiz without Charlie Sheen.
