Subject: A.K.A. Quiz
From: Nigel Parsons
Date: 26 Apr 17 - 08:35 AM

Ok, here's another quiz. Only a couple of music related ones, so happy for this to drop into the BS section after a couple of days (where it may get a different audience)
As usual Please do not put answers in the thread
This is an A.K.A. Quiz. What I am looking for, in most cases, is the better known name or title of the person named. In a few cases I have provided additional info. There are also a couple of possible half-points waiting for partially correct answers.

1        How is Elizabeth Angela Marguerite Bowes-Lyon best (or most fondly) remembered?
2        Marion Morrison?
3        Edmond Dantes (fictional character)
4        Richard Starkey?
5        Nicholas Breakspear?
6        Samuel Langhorne Clemens
7        (reporter) Clark Kent
8        Maurice Mickelwhite?
9        Sir Percy Blakeney
10        Louis (pronounced "Lewis") Armstrong (nickname wanted)
11        Shirley Crabtree
12        Rodrigo Diaz de Bivar (11th century soldier)
13        Iosif Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili?
14        Karol Józef Wojtyła?
15        What was the 'birth name' of Superman?
16        Charles Lutwidge Dodgson?
17        (singer/songwriter) Steven Demetre Georgiou (either name)
18        (Artist) Doménikos Theotokópoulos (1541 – 7 April 1614),
19        Captain Clegg, or the Scarecrow of Romney Marsh?
20        (collectively) Athos, Porthos & Aramis?


Cheers
Nigel

18/20 for Snuffy.
20/20 for Eliza (Senoufou)

Maybe the extra half-hour helped. Or maybe it's a case of read over the answers before submitting :)

Cheers

off the top of my head I can get 16! Tho spellcheck did not like one name so I had to look it up

and it doesn't mean they are all right (one is just s book name, not the character's name, & 2 are titles, not person's name)

wot fun!

Sandra
Book name is fine if it's #3, it is a title the character was known by. (must re-read that one!)

Just titles? Ah, that may include some of those I've arranged half-marks for.

Guest: If it slips below the line (into B.S.) it is still available for anyone to read, just not to add to the discussion.

Cheers
Nigel

Can't remember which name was Superman's and which was his father's. Well over 50 years since I read a Superman comic.
