plurization of common and proper nouns


Common nouns are both countable and uncountable, but proper nouns, with some exceptions, are uncountable. Is this correct? Please help - I am a bit confused.

A proper noun is a name or title of someone or something specific - one countable person (Bob) or thing (Mount Rushmore). You can make a proper noun plural (two Bobs) if there are more than one. Place names are not usually plural simply because there is only one place. But you could write: there are not many Mount Rushmores.
