    There's Kylie, Madonna (or Madge if you're British), and Beyonce. All people who only need one name to be identified in a conversation. Bono and Edge too I suppose.
    Anyone else?

    If you're geeky / online most of the time, does Xeni count?

    Just a thought

    I hope to one day famously be known as Glukkake.

    Tons of people are known by phrases and nicknames - see: most rappers, artists like COOP, Shag, Brom...

    Um ... Cher?

    I'd argue people like Hitchcock and Kubrick, Laurel and Hardy too. Abbott and Costello.

    Moby? Beck?

    There's a sizeable number of people from my uni days who still have absolutely no idea what my real name is. There'd be more if it wasn't for that damn Royal Mail... Wait, does that mean I have to be a dictator?
