Nice, but I think the list showing the first letter and the number of letters made it too easy. I had to confirm some guesses using Google for images of that person.

Here's what I got:

Avogadro
Bethe
Bohr
Chandrasekhar
Curie
Dirac
Euler
Faraday
Fermi
Feynman
Galileo
Gell-Mann
Heisenberg
Newton
Oppenheimer
Pauli
Planck
Rutherford
Schrodinger
Tesla
Volta
