unfamous

Unfamous is a somewhat controversial word. It means not famous or not widely known about or respected. It is controversial in the sense that some dictionaries from the United States recognize it as a word, but most spellchecks on computers do not. European dictionaries tend to not recognize it either.
Unfamous是一个有争议的词。它的意思是并不出名的,或者不被广泛认知的。它具有争议在于某些美国的词典认可这个词,但是大多数电脑上的拼写检查却不把这个词看作正确的词。欧洲的词典也倾向于不认可它。

The more common formation is not famous. This can be hyphenated to made an adjective form as well. Though, one should also consider another word such as ordinary, commonplace, or normal.
比较常见的表达“不出名的”是not famous。也可以用连字符把这两个词连接成形容词形式。不过,我们也可以考虑用别的词来表示,如ordinary、commonplace或normal。

例:
It's been believed for centuries that great writers, composers and scientists are essentially quite different from ordinary people.
几个世纪以来人们一直相信伟大的作家、作曲家和科学家从根本上就与普通人大不相同。

He was a commonplace, mean-looking man who might have been an engineer or technician of some kind.
他是一个面目平庸的普通人,可能是个工程师,或者是个技术员。

Statistics indicate that depressed patients are more likely to become ill than are normal people.
