5. Norman Conquest

Not to be confused with the Norman invasion of Britain in 1066, Norman Conquest was an Australian footballer who was born in 1916. 

Mr. Conquest would probably be a name yearned for by many males in today's climate and the original owner was post-humously inducted into the Football Federation Australia's Hall of Fame.

Norman Conquest, who played as a goalkeeper, is best remembered for shipping 17 goals during a 17-0 loss to an England FA representatives side in 1951.
