And we don't have to have the same names for our worthies. Might I suggest :
Athos, Porthos, Aramis, D'Artagnon (Oops, thats four)
Shakespeare (that's all I could think of)
Michealangelo, Da Vinci, Raphael, Giotto, etc
Just an idea from someone tired of reading lots of sniping, and not a lot of new ideas.
P.S. I know the three musketeers is post period, it was just an example, no need to start sniping about that too.
