Notables are people who are worthy of note, remarkable, eminent, or persons of distinction. They may be famous, now or in the past. Or they may be less than famous to the general public, but well-known among their own esoteric accomplished peers.

Examples might be people listed in Who's Who, or in encyclopedias. In general, if such a person's names appears in a number of print references or published lists as a leading figure in a field, and especially over a period of time, then they can be considered notable.

Or they may be infamous, or "Black Sheep", particularly if they reached a high level of disrepute among authorities and media, such as criminals who were once listed on the FBI Ten Most Wanted List.

For the many people who reached the pinnacle of numerous fields in sports entertainment, see the sport, league, and team breakdowns etc. in the top-level Category:Sports.

Since notables can be many thousands of people over the centuries, they should be placed into appropriate sub-categories, as nested here. See the guidelines for each category.
