For the past year I've been compiling famous names to list on my name numerology website. These are all noted individuals, but who are the most famous? Today let's count down the most famous men named David.

The most famous people (based on online chatter) with the first name David are:

10. David Gilmour - Musician (Pink Floyd)

9. David Slade - Director (30 Days of Night, Twilight: Eclipse)

8. David Carradine - Actor (Kung Fu, Kill Bill)

7. David Hasselhoff - Actor and Musician (Knight Rider, Baywatch)

6. David Byrne - Musician with The Talking Heads and Solo (Road to Nowhere, And She Was, Wild Wild Life)

5. David Lynch - Director (Twin Peaks, The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet)

4. David Letterman - Televison Talk Show Host (Late Show with David Letterman)

3. David Cook - Singer (American Idol Season Seven Winner)

2. David Bowie - Musician (Space Oddity, Young Americans, Let's Dance)

...and the most famous man named David is...

1. David Beckham - Soccer / Football Star

Not making the top 10 list were David Attenborough - BBC Broadcaster and Naturalist, David Duchovny - Actor (The X-Files, Californication), David Mamet - Author, Playwright, Screenwriter (Glengarry Glen Ross, The Verdict, Wag the Dog), David Tennant - Actor (Dr. Who, Casanova, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire), David Cross - Comedian, Writer, and Actor (Arrested Development, The Ben Stiller Show), David Crosby - Musician (Crosby, Stils, Nash, and Young; The Byrds; CPR), David Copperfield - Title Character in the Novel by Charles Dickens, David Spade - Actor (Just Shoot Me!, 8 Simple Rules, Rules of Engagement), David Sedaris - Author (Me Talk Pretty One Day, When You Are Engulfed in Flames), David Livingstone - Explorer (Dr Livingstone, I presume?), David Schwimmer - Actor, Director (Friends; Run, Fat Boy, Run), David Stern - NBA Commissioner, David Yates - Director (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows), David Copperfield - Stage Magician, David Hockney - Artist and Photographer, David Niven - Actor (Around the World in 80 Days, The Pink Panther), David Lachapelle - Photographer, David Frost - Journaist and Writer (Nixon Interviews).

An excellent mix of occupations for the top ten Davids with one athelete (Beckham), one talk show host (Letterman), two directors (Slade and Lynch), two actors (Carradine and Hasselhoff), four musicians (Gilmour, Byrne, Cook, and Bowie).

In this list we have one duplicate name, David Copperfield, who is both a stage magician and the title character in Charles Dickens' novel "David Copperfield".

I compiled this list by searching for each of the Davids on a number of search engines and ranking them by the number of web pages, discussion forums, photos, videos, etc that are available online.
