Do You Know Their Faces, although you Know Their Names?

This post was originally published on link to source


A common problem many people have is that they remember people’s faces, but they don’t know their names. That being said, do you sometimes hear a name, but can’t quite put a face to them? Here are 10 people whose names you’ve heard, but you probably wouldn’t know them from just seeing a picture.



Oscar Wilde
Famous for The Portrait if Dorian Grey, and for being probably the most quoted writer of his generation. To this day he is the person who set the bar for sarcastic comebacks, witty remarks, and memorable quips about things like friendship, marriage, money, status, etc. However, for a person who is extremely famous for his words, many people don’t know what his face look like. I’m glad I was able to be here and fix this for you!


Grace Jones
Grace Jones was ahead of her time in many, many ways. She was one of the most famous African American models of the 80s in an industry that was dominated by white models. She was a striking, beautiful, androgynous model in an industry dominated by skinny, feminine models. And yet she was the household name for YSL and Kenzo. Furthermore, she had a successful music career, collaborating with musicians like Nile Rogers, Basement Jaxx, and Lady Gaga. And yet, for all the mentions of her in songs and news articles, many people from our generation don’t know how she looks.



Cheech & Chong
Cheech and Chong were the Harold and Kumar of the previous generation. (Wait, should Harold and Kumar be on this list?) Their main schtick was making hilarious movies that revolved (in one way or another) around smoking copious amounts of MJ and going on rambunctious adventures together. If you listened to any hip-hop in the 90s and early 2000s you surely have heard their names. And now, you also know their faces.


Henry Ford
Henry Ford revolutionized the line-manufacturing process. He was a true efficiency powerhouse of industrial car manufacturing. And yet, for a person who played a crucial role in shaping the world we live in today, few people actually take the time to research him and find out what he looks like.
