We can treat Proper noun.

For example, a person’s name, just take it as an example of John. Maybe, initially some of you consider that the plural of people’s names is strange, i.e. suppose there are two people named John in one class. So actually we can make it Johns.

Examples of sentences are:

There are two Johns in my class.
(there are two Johns in my class )

We can also add “the”, “an”, or “a” to proper noun under certain conditions. Suppose you are a resident of London. According to your observation, London in the past was still very quiet. However, now you see that London is crowded or not quiet anymore. That means there are two London, namely London past, and London today. Then you conclude that the current London is no longer the London you occupied first. Examples of sentences are:
This is the longer the London I used to live in.
(this is no longer London that I used to live in)
