Comedian and actress Dawn French has been named for services to entertainment, while Plymouth's ballet-dancing son Wayne Sleep has also been nominated.
Born in the city, Wayne went to Hyde Park Junior School and then went on to become a star of stage and screen, even having a film role alongside Sean Connery and Donald Sutherland.
In 1973, Sleep established a world record by doing an entrechat-douze – a jump with twelve beats of the feet. This record still stands.
Painters Robert Lenkiewicz and Beryl Cook both get a mention as does film-score composer Ron Goodwin.
The poll comes after Plymouth City Council last year asked you to choose from a shortlist of 13 who should be celebrated with their own bench in the city.
And it follows the launch of a fund to raise money for a memorial to Plymouth politician Michael Foot.
We are looking for a Plymouth hero who was born in the city, or spent a significant part of their life in the city.
