I got Carrie Oakey before the hint and after the hint I got them all, because I always give up and click the hint really easily.

This was fun. I did appreciate your giving us the first names in your hint. Before I looked, I had names like Carr Poole and Wayne Schauer. Generally I find the hints don't help at all. Yours was the most successful hint I've seen. Thanks for the fun brain teaser.
