Missing Links: A Name Puzzle…


They say that one man’s last name is another man’s first. Or at least they should say that, as the line between surnames and given names gets blurrier every day.

Surnames lure us with a rich vein of new baby name ideas that are grounded in the familiar. It’s an irresistible combo for many parents: the name’s style is fresh and new, yet everyone can spell and pronounce it and nobody calls it “made up.” Surname-styled names like Mason, Madison and Riley already rank near the top of the popularity charts, and more like Everly and Weston are climbing fast.

That means that more and more of us will find our last names popping up in the first name column. To illustrate, I’ve taken pairs of famous individuals and joined them at their shared names (for one it’s a surname, the other a given name). Then I’ve used the remaining parts to form a new, mild-mannered secret identity for the two. For instance, Elizabeth Taylor and Taylor Swift join to become “Elizabeth Swift.”

Can you find the missing name link that turns each of the ordinary-looking names below into two full famous names?
