The following is a work-in-progress ranking of the the top 30+ names employed by Aristotle, judged by the amount of space each person is allotted in the "name index" section, of is two-volume The Complete Works of Aristotle (Princeton, 1994), specifically the number of "rows", as shown in the 7th column (below), each person has.
