    I'll start just to give an idea of what I'm talking about...

    1. Joannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart

    (The full birth name of Wolfgang Theophilus/Amadeus/Amade/Amad?/Amad?/Amadeo/Gottlieb Mozart--he wasn't terribly consistent with his name and it usually was often mocked as Wolfgangus Amadeus Mozartus, Trazom, Wolfgango Amadeo di Mozartini, etc...)

      Does it have to be the stage name...or can it be their proper name, because most people only use their first and last name...and can you use like...numbers? Like John Christopher Depp II (Johnny Depp) ?

        Exactamundo. And the numbers thing is exactly what I was after. Spanish proper names are also notoriously long since they include the mother's maiden name. Royals are another source of some very long names.

        3. Desiderio Alberto Arnaz y de Acha III (Desi Arnaz)

                      Alyson is a natural brunette. A few other redheads that come to mind are Ramses II (yep, the pharaoh--they even tested his hair) and Elizabeth I.

                      Name five famous people who had ten children or more (feel free to go into history--male or female).

                          2. Holy Roman Empress Maria Theresa of Austria (Habsburg)

                            3. Julio Iglesias is still alive (does that count), but has 10 childeren.


                            And how is Lindsay a brunette when she was already a redhead when she was little? Also when she has outgrowth, it's red. From all I know, she is a real redhead.
                            Spoiler:
                            (She even has the 'nickname' firecrotch)

                              You're right. It seemed to be contentious on my first Google inspection, though. But it seems the fan sites definitely say red.

                              Aly is definitely a brunette though (you can see it in BtVS season 1). They had her dye her hair red so Buffy was blonde (also brunette), Cordy was brunette and Willow was a redhead.

                              I just said the history thing because, Julio Iglesias, etc... aside, it was more common to have a huge amount of children historically and it isn't so common now. There's also the fact that there used to be high infant mortality rates.

                              3. Ramses II (over 100 children--some sources state as many as 200--and many wives including his favorite, Nefretari--he outlived about half of his children as he lived to be about 92 years old, having reigned for 67 years)

                                  Wow 100-200 children, that are a lot.


                                  5. William the Silent/William of Orange (Willem van Oranje Nassau) had 16 kids. He is the father of the fatherland for the Netherlands. Our royalties are still part of the house of Oranje Nassau. (Soon we will have King William IV)


                                  Name 5 famous people who are adopted.

                                        3. Violet and Daisy Hilton

                                        (They were conjoined twins born to an unwed mother in England and given up for adoption to a family who basically used them as a meal ticket by touring them, but they were also educated and became singers, dancers, actresses in both film and vaudeville, musicians, etc... They had a tap-dancing routine with Bob Hope. They won emancipation from their abusive adoptive parents who were taking their money. They were in both Freaks and Chained for Life. They tried to get marriage licenses for years and were turned down by numerous states until 1936. Both had a succession of short, failed marriages. When vaudeville and sideshows went out of business, they had nothing but show clothes and ended up bagging groceries and dying of the Hong Kong flu. There's a Broadway musical based on their lives called Side Show.)

                                        Not exactly the most positive example of adoptive parents, though.
