Censuswhacking - Famous Names

You can often find the names of famous people (or fictional characters) in the census - but they are not the real "famous" people. Here is part of my collection of "famous names of famous people":

o Queen Victoria – 1870, Scott County VA

o Adolph Hitler – 1910, Newark NJ

o Peter Great – 1900, Hamilton FL

o Snow White – 1920, Oklahoma City, OK

o Carmen San Diego – 1910, Santurce, PR

o Clark Kent – 1900, Montgomery County MS

o Paul Bunyan – 1910, El Reno OK

o Tony Soprano – 1920, Chicago IL

Who knew?

Have you found a name in the census with a name that became famous later? Tell me about it.
