A common misconception is that Marilyn Monroe was a Playmate of the Month. She appeared in the first issue of Playboy as the "Sweetheart of the Month". The term "Playmate" was introduced in the second issue, but that term was applied to Monroe in several later issues.
Note: Ellen Stratton was the first official Playmate of the Year.
