Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of Latter Day Saints who have attained at least some level of fame and/or success. This list includes adherents of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS or Mormon), as well as adherents of related denominations (as labeled). It lists those who are current adherents of a Latter Day Saint Church and those who were adherents at the time of their death.

Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are usually considered either "active," meaning they attend church on a regular basis and are committed to living their religion, or are "less-active," meaning they don't attend church regularly and/or they don't adhere to its principles. See List of former Latter Day Saints for a list of persons who ended their affiliation with LDS movement religions.
