HELP! Can someone help me name famous people with the following initials? (See below)?

Hi! I'm making a list for a memory system where you have to name 100 people with certain initials. I have names for most of them, but some of the names I've come up with are not really memorable at all. If you could help me come up with some good names for the following initialis, I'd be happy to send you my completed list. This is known as the "Dominic System" and is REALLY useful for memorizing large amounts of info- and counting cards in Las Vegas, ha ha. The person who invented this system is the six time world memory champion and all of his competition use it as well, so you know it really works!

Here are the initials that I need help with: (Remember to try to use famous people that are HIGHLY recognizable to most people- not an obscure actor, athlete or entertainer, otherwise it doesn't work as well. For example, for D.H., you use Dustin Hoffman or for A.A., Alan Alda.

1. O.A.

2. O.C.

3. O.E.

4. B.O.

5. B.N.

6. E.S.

7. G.O.

8. H.N.

9. N.B.

10. H.D.

11. G.D.

12. N.D.

    Interesting. Depends on how famous . . .

    2. Orange County - if it's a popular TV show, you can make an exception, right?

    3. Old English - malt liquor that people refer to as "O-E"

    4. Billy Ocean - famous singer from the '80s (Caribbean Queen)

    5. Brad Nessler - sports commentator

    6. Ernie Shavers - hardest hitting heavyweight boxer of all time

    7. Greg Oden - basketball player (trust me, this will be good in a couple of years)

    10. Hilary Duff- actress

    11. Gail Devers - Olympic gold medal winning track star

    12. Notre Dame - HIGHLY recognizable and sounds like a name

    Hope at least one of these helps!

    You could use the The Internet Movie Database Biography Section at and select the Last Name's initial, such as "A" (using your first example). Then search using Control-F with ", O" (using your first example) with "Match Case" on to skip through the list until you find someone famous.

    3. Omar Epps (from ER & _Love & Basketball_)

    9. Norman Bates
