Ronaldo obviously the greatest football name, but what's next?

Been a few good Smiths. Suarez has a decent about, as does Rossi.

In England, for a first name, I think it would have to be Bobby.

Dembele’s have had a fine career, Cole’s have plenty of PL and international caps.

Carlos is a good shout.

Roberto Carlos
Carlos Alberto
Carlos Valderrama
Carles Puyol (Catalan version)
Carlos Tevez

but if we are sticking to last names only, after Ronaldo, it’s hard to beat Muller.
