Are these the first or last names of classic TV actors?

Names like Louise, DeForest, Curtis and Christopher have to be… what?

Sometimes when an actor takes a stage name, they simply use their first and middle names. Add to that the fact that a number of actors are born with names that seem tailor-made for a credits sequence and you have a lot of famous faces with two names that could be both first and last names.

We've compiled a list of classic TV actors that either have last names that sound like first names or first names that sound like last names — or both!

Can you tell whether these names come first or last?

  1. Is Louise this 'Gilligan's Island' actress's first or last name?
  2. Is Martin this 'Adam-12' actor's first or last name?

16/20. Not too surprising, considering I never watched the Waltons, Lost in Space, or St. Elsewhere. Didn't watch Gunsmoke too much, either.

19 out of 20. I don't remember the character's name of the girl on My Three Sons, much less her real name.
