How many words are there in English to denote a human being?

I happen to notice there are so many many words / phrases / idioms in English that denote a person, a person of a certain class, or a person with some particular characteristics, such as

BALL: oddball,
NUT: a tough nut,
BIRD: an early bird
CREATURE: a creature of habit
SPIRIT ..... independent spirit
SOUL ....... (a dear) soul
.......................
.......................
.......................

There maybe more than 20 or 30 in the list, and even yet more. Dear English speakers, could you please help me lengthen this list as far as possible? Maybe I'll compile a list WORDS TO DENOTE ' A HUMAN BEING' based on your work. That'll be interesting and help.
