Searching for a friend's name

I have fallen out of touch with a friend so I decided to do a search for his name on the Internet. I expected that my search would be difficult due to the fact that this friend has the same name as a high-profile celebrity, but I never expected it to be quite so hard. When you factor into the equation that both the given and surnames are very common it became even harder to do. So, I was left with the question: Does a famous person reserve the right to virtually take over your name?

Only if they take over all my bill payments while they're at it.

You are right.Though it seems very easy with these sophisticated search machines it is really a tough one to get the result you desire.

I have tried to look people up online also but it gave me a huge list of the same names. I don't think anyone has the right to fully take over anyone's name though.
