    Not sure why Julia Child and Judy Blume are included here…like many non-celebrity women they just took their husbands’ names….

      That was going to be my point exactly…Why include married woman? But a fun post otherwise.

    What I’m always wondering about is how are these people called by their friends and family? I mean, what if you are Fergie’s boyfriend? Do you call her “Fergie” or “Stacey”. What does Beyonce say to Jay-Z when she’s cooking dinner? “Shawn! Dinner’s ready!!”…
