    Define the word ‘famous’.

    Not that easy as you would think it is.
    Famous and well known by whom?
    Plus in what timeframe? Famous back than in the old times? Still being famous now? Do we need to have our own internet entry to be called ‘famous’? Does having been an operasinger count as well or is it about political fame?

    I would say famous even in old times as well. Opera singer definitely counts.

    Well known by the general public in past, usually means they are still well known now. Even so I classify well known in the past only as being famous also.

    I suppose in the modern world the best way to define famous is if you google search that famous person, and there is a large amount of information on them.
    Do not count social media results though as that contains non famous on searches

    Never been famous to my knowledge. Happy to remain that way too. Anonymity is a blessing.

    Only one pl where I was well known. Only due to the man to whom I was married. An artist. Victorian England.

    I think I've said this in other threads but I definitely don't remember any FPLs. That doesn't mean I didn't think my family was important at the time, due to my parentage or the profession of my father I felt well known in my town/village/clan in three lives (and very poor in others!). Thinking about it now it impacted my life very differently depending on if I was male or female. In my female lives I remember feeling young and excited by my prospects and a little vain, in my male life I was weighed down by the responsibility of upholding the family name, crushed by it. The circumstances in these lives was very different of course, so it might not have been a question of gender. Anyway, I digress, no one famous, certainly no lives recorded by history beyond being a name on a census.

    I'm glad not to have been famous. As a very ordinary soldier I had no delusions of grandeur! I recall that I didn't like to be noticed. I just fitted in happily. I'm still doing it.

    I've voted 'no' but only because I haven't remembered any famous lives as yet. Who knows what else is hiding in my subconscious? I'm pretty sure about my lives going back quite a way though, so I doubt there are any famous ones in there. In one life I was a servant to a King, so I was very close to someone famous, but that doesn't really count I don't think!

    I might have had a "famous" PL or three, I cannot be sure, though. Most of my past lives were non-famous anyway.

    Thinking back on this for the past week and there is a common thread with the people here that at one time or another they have been. I always wonder how long some of us have been on this world through out the ages that have been forgotten and we're just going though the motions of life due to karma ect.

    Depends on how you look at history in my case I guess, most know about the 101st Airborne during WWII and the family of my previous self had a bridge named after me, appearently still can't let go of me getting killed
    But do I consider myself famous? No
    Do I consider myself a hero? No, I just did my job as I've done before and after that, I'm just good at getting myself killed.....

    I have been thinking about this concept a lot, particularly because several times I have been picked out as the specific person remembered in a conflict (a "war hero", if you will). There were plenty of other soldiers in those conflicts who were just as talented and hardworking, who sacrificed just as much or more and were definitely better people than I was. Similar to your line of thought, I just consider myself to be a person who is good at getting themself killed and was once decent at ending others. So why did I get picked out of the crowd? I was just one person doing my job, so why did my name continue to be passed down? I feel guilty at having been chosen over everyone else there and dirty knowing how some of history's beloved "heroes" really were.

    Yes, it's pretty sobering all round. Germans aren't supposed to be heroes these days ...

    :DI envy a little (in a humorous way) people who don't have famous past lives. I think anonymity is a pleasant thing. I'm taking advantage of it a lot right now. Well, I've had three famous lives or that's what I remember.

    In one life I was a very famous writer in Victorian times. I read his books and when I was a little girl I wrote about the same thing he did, so... you could say that I admire him in some way.

    In another life I was an actor. I wasn't very famous, but people would greet me on the street sometimes.

    In another life I was a rock singer. Too famous. ****, I think it was one of the most suffocating lives I ever lived.

    And in one life I was an indigenous nurse. I don't think that life was a famous life, but everyone in the place knew me and I was important! :) That's what I remember. Dear anonymity, you're great hahaha.
