* Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll: just known as {{Shakira}} by most people, you'll have almost certainly heard one of her songs. Actually a quarter Lebanese (which somewhat explains the [[BellyDancer belly-dancing]]).

Subject to SpellMyNameWithAnS: often misspelled as 'Col'''u'''mbia'. Usually by Americans, as they're used to seeing that spelling associated with places in their own country (for example, the city of Columbia is the state capital of South Carolina. Also by Canadians, for the same reason, and by loads of Europeans, because the name of the country is spelt differently, but always with a 'u' instead of an 'o', in German, Bulgarian, Czech, Finnish, Hungarian, Icelandic, Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Serbo-Croatian, Slovak, Slovenian and Ukrainian.
