The most Wikipedia’ed residents of the Cape Fear

According to the map, Lara Trump (Wilmington) is the most Wikipedia’ed person in our area.

Others include:

  • Samm-Art Williams, a screenwriter from Burgaw
  • Quinton McCracken, a former professional baseball player from Southport
  • Scott Dawson, a professional wrestler from Whiteville

The map indicates higher name popularity with larger font sizes, with Michael Jordan (obviously) as the biggest name in North Carolina and one of the biggest names in the country.

Dwayne Johnson, Ted Bundy, and Andre the Giant popped up as other huge names from the East coast – overtaking Kanye West as you zoom out.
