People With Only One Name

For bad or good, some famous people have enduring historical significance and are recognizable by a single name.  Among them are

  • Hitler
  • Mussolini
  • Mao
  • Jesus
  • Rosanne
  • Cher
  • Oprah

Okay, maybe I’m stretching the truth about Cher.  I just wonder if the one-name thing is a recent media attention-grabbing thing or if it just occurs naturally throughout history.
