* new (or corrected) to v. 6

Notes: *Ice-T's real name is probably Morrow, not Marrow (as per Entertainment Almanac). Buddy DeSylva is De Sylva in some sources. Diane von Fürstenberg has no umlaut in some sources. Mel Tormé on most record jackets; his son Tracy (Star Trek: TNG, Sliders) spells it with accent. Walter De la Mare is de la Mare in Webster's Encyclopedia of Literature. Jury is still out on Tony Pena/Peña, but Elizabeth Pena (and Federico Peña) for sure. WebBiog puts Hernando de Soto under “S.”

Feel free to send additions and quibbles. Just for fun, here are some potentially useful names from the margins of my copy: Tommie Agee, *Christian Bale, Tyra Banks, Elya Baskin, Alfred Earle Birney, Erik Bruhn, Neve Campbell, *Amie Carey, Drew Carey, *Rory Cochrane, Jan De Bont, Oscar De La Hoya, Christine Elise, Amos Elon, Peri Gilpin, Mia Hamm, Tara Dawn Holland, *Irène Jacob, Neal Jimenez, Mimi Kennedy, *Delroy Lindo, Eric Lutes, Ewan McGregor, Elle Macpherson, Johnny Olson, *Amy Pietz, Parker Posey, Lela Rochon, Anna Sui, *Kerri Strug, Elena Valova, *Anne Sophie von Otter, Renée Zellweger. Among a few score. *And if you ever need to know, Carrot Top's real name is Scott Thompson.
