Not the same poll, of course :)

I'm not sure I agree with the inclusion of JCVD, I guess Van Damme probably meant "From Damme", so he's not named "like" the town, he's named after the town.

I've got two accounts with maybe 200 lists. Some are a work in progress. Of course I've only been at this since August!
Still waiting on one of my original works polls to go live.
It has been 4 Months! I had 18 go live the first 2.
The only original poll was the poll when Carol Channing passed.
I was the only one that did one.
I wait patiently. I think some of my polls are good enough.
But I have to wait for my probation to end I guess!
Cheers.
Will look at some of your lists when I get a chance.
Summer is coming here in SoCal 70 Degree weather is only a couple of weeks away!
Will be working less here when that happens!

Hi.
Your poll lacks Sharon Stone :: Sharon, Pennsylvania, USA
This option would be best matching -- guess why ))

I prefer Norfolk, Virginia. But no matter how many Sharons in the US, Sharon Stone is THE one. It's great to see her name included. Thanks

I don't know who Penn Stone is, but any big port city is the gate to another language. Wanna learn another German?.. - welcome to Hamburg. Wanna learn another French?.. - visit Le Havre. Moreover, for another English English you may stay in London, just spend some days in Docklands )))))

Penn is the very old 4 letter state designation for Pennsylvania.
We were of the subject of Sharon Stone! I said I would change Sharon's info to Sharon, Pennsylvania if you could tell me how the indigenous residents say the name "Norfolk". How they pronounce it. Clue: Most people IN the US don't know how either!!!

Ed, the abbs are often hard to understand, even for native speakers ))
The Norfolk locals use two variants minimum, if you mean those who live, not just long-stay there.

PS: yeah, found the way to describe this on my keyboard (semi-transcription):
1) `Norfik; 2) No`fak

PPS: but they have no problem to pronounce it literary for guests ;)

P.S. I know how the Australian locals pronounce it:

Kidding.  :P

Thanks for the suggestions.
If you read above please you'll notice I need names attached to non USA people.
Cheers.
Good choices.
I had John Denver for Denver but removed him to make room for non US names.

Ed, please make correction for Ukraine (now it is "Ukrane").

I suggest to keep similar approaches for USA and UK, or U.S.A. and U.K., when using dots. But not USA vs. U.K. as it is now.

Also I suggest to provide full names for the States, so all of them look similar as #17 "Reno, Nevada, USA".

Thanks

Actor: Nicholson (although since he'll get so many votes, I might go with Tilda Swinton or Regina King)
City: Probably Paris (although there are several where I've never been)
