Here is one to try. Think of a famous person (celebrity) with 2 first names such as (James Dean), now think of celebrity with a first name the same as the previous last name, such as (Dean Martin).
James Dean > Dean Martin

Would Tom (Thomas) Hanks qualify for this game? If so, then Hank Williams could come next.

In other words, if the "s" is left off of Hanks and Williams, does the name still qualify?

This is like playing telephone in grade school, by the time you get to the end it's no longer the same message. Can anyone find Xiaopingas a famous first name. feel free to start over if you'd like. The original post was ... pick a famous person (celebrity) with 2 first names such as (James Dean), now think of celebrity with a first name the same as the previous last name, such as (Dean Martin). James Dean > Dean Martin

In Deng Xiaoping, Deng is the surname and Xiaoping, the given name(which, in English, would be the first name). Chinese & Koreans write their names with the surnames first.

Deng Xiaoping from Wikipedia:
His third wife, Zhuo Lin, was the daughter of an industrialist in Yunnan Province. She became a member of the Communist Party in 1938, and a year later married Deng in front of Mao's cave dwelling in Yan'an. They had five children: three daughters (Deng Lin, Deng Nan, Deng Rong) and two sons (Deng Pufang, Deng Zhifang).

In Xiaoping Yang, I think Xiaoping is the given name and Yang, the surname. It's just written the 'English way'.
