People, along with places and things, are one of the three words used to define what constitutes a noun. There are two subsets of people, common noun and proper noun. Common nouns refer to people in general, like magicians, while Proper Nouns refer to specific people, like Eric Baerren. We will leave for another day the debate about whether there is any subset of people more common than magicians (no), or whether there is anything to Eric Baerren that is proper (again, no).
