9. Hockey's Stanleys

According to NHL.com, there are no active NHL players named Stanley, Stan -- or Stanislaus for that matter, but Stanleys have had some success playing hockey. Allan Stanley played on a powerhouse Toronto Maple Leafs team that won four of Lord Stanley’s cups in the 1960s. But for Chicagoans, you need look no further than Stan Mikita, who helped the Blackhawks win it all in 1961, for the most famous hockey-playing Stan.
