9 John Luther; Scottish cyclist; moneysaver; designer Zandra; boxer Félix? Chris Hoy and Zandra Rhodes have surnames that are islands, so I guess the others have island surnames as well.

12 Huronian; Cryogenian; Andean-Saharan; Karoo; Quaternary (ongoing)? Ice Ages.

13 Astro; Marmaduke; Hamlet; Scooby-Doo? The last 2 are Danes - Great Danes perhaps?
Like the late Chaircat Midge, I am not always right.

Marmaduke is a Great Dane, I remember. I think Astro is the dog from The Jetsons?

15 Coffee plant; Dead Sea scrolls; Herrerasaurus dinosaur?
I'm going to go with: discovered by shepherds/goatherds. (But I had to do some reading on Wikipedia.)

11. Clotho, Atropos and Lachesis, the fates from Greek mythology. Spun the thread, measured the thread and cut the thread of life.
#10 is interesting - hadn't heard that but the names sound very Khanesque.

Wonderful find! I love fossils! I'd love to go to New Mexico where they have found a huge graveyard of dinosaurs who all died at the same time.... which they think was when the asteroid hit Mexico
