List of fictitious people

This article lists the fictitious people, i.e., Nonexistent people, which, unlike fictional people, are those somebody has claimed to actually exist. Usually this is done for purposes of practical joke or hoax, but sometimes for purposes of committing fraud or as a pseudonym. Sometimes the line between the two categories is blurred, e.g., as in the case of Abdul Alhazred.

Hoaxes

Pseudonyms
