For each name, Nameclouds gives you a list of notable people with that name. You may notice that the names are not exactly the same every time, and that you recognize some of them but not others.

For many names, there are more notable people than we can conveniently display, so each time you look up a name we show you a selection of up to 10. Of these, five are chosen at random among the most notable, from historical figures to contemporary celebrities. These are the names you probably recognize. We also display, at random, five less well-known people who are still notable in some respect, so that you can appreciate more fully how the name has been used. For example, for Elizabeth you may see two queens of England, actress Elizabeth Taylor, alongside poet Elizabeth Bishop and Nobel-prize-winning biologist Elizabeth Blackburn.
