What famous person

has six vowels in his/her full name, all of which are the same? (e.g., Adam Casablanca, if he existed.)

UPDATE: I can think of at least two, both very famous.

Renee Zellweger

You mean, if I existed and were famous.

John Vanbiesbrouck

(who has the added advantage of having exactly one of each vowel in his last name)

I always loved Aurelio Rodriguez' name (he played third for the Angels 70s, and then went on to many other teams). All 5 in his first name, 4/5 in his last!

For a non-E name, there's Russian historian Abraham Harkavy. I'm sure it was on the tips of everyone's tongues.

If by "full name" you mean first, middle, and last, Daniel Kahikina Akaka has six As in his "full name." Then again, maybe Senators -- especially those from Hawaii -- don't count as "famous" people, and maybe middle names don't count toward "full names."

I'm surprised that Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara isn't on the tip of everyone's tongue.
