1. Slavoj Zizek, academic2. Janko Kastelic, musicianThat's off the top of my head. Now I must ponder.
3. France Preseren, poet4. Janez Jansa, politician5. Janez Drnovsek, hippy neo-age weirdo and former president(and if you're allergic to Janezes - ...errr... the members of the avant-garde rock group Laibach...)Easy.Next.
by "famous" I meant famous outside Slovenia.
What's Slovenia? Is that, like, a part of Yugoslavia or something?Oh.(*ducks*)
The architect Joze Plecznik! Legend!Also all the Windisch-Graetzs are, in a way, Slovenian, and there are definitely more than five of them.
Oh, yes, Cardinal Ambrozic! I forgot. Meanwhile, Slavoj Zizek is hugely famous internationally in grad departments of Literary Theory and also the London Review of Books. And possibly also the TLS. But you should forgive him all that because his name is so much fun to say. Slavoy Shzishzek. So cool! And there are wee marks over the Zs. Slovenia arguably caused the outbreak of the Yugoslav civil wars by being the first part to break off, which is less cool, but at least it points to a firm national identity. Very few in Slovenia were killed in the resulting horrors. Slovenia is almost entirely Slovene, and they got out of the war ASAP.
in grad departments of Literary Theory says it all. And...languages that do not know to separate consonants with vowels ought to be severely punished.
