QUIZ: Is This a Celebrity Baby Name or a Character from Shakespeare?

If you are a normal person, you’re allowed to name your child something like Steve or Liz. If you are a celebrity, however, you must christen them Blue Ivy or Diva Muffin. It’s just how these things have to work. That’s why pretty much every celebrity baby name sounds like a minor Shakespeare character whose only role in the whole play is to make ridiculous comments and then die offstage.

Given how difficult it is to distinguish one from the other, can you tell which of these is a celebrity baby name and which is a character from Shakespeare?
