As mentioned before, Death Note is the source of many great characters who fans love, love to hate, admire, and just can't stand. As any good franchise, this one has strong pillars of great storytelling and character building to support its success. 
Interestingly, the rankings of Death Note characters do show a tendency towards certain names. Different ranking list do the ranks themselves differently, but the list of top 10-15 is usually the same, be it a Japanese magazine ranking, a online ranker website, or personal lists by people online. 
All in all, we can all see the tendency of several main and regular secondary characters being beloved by fans. 
And, of course, L and Light are the most beloved. There is absolutely no doubt in it. When it comes to Misa Amane, the views do get a bit different but most consider her a well-written character despite her tragic fate in the story. 
In addition, the shinigamis have won the fan's love even despite being relatively passive for the majority of the story (except several crucial moments where they show extraordinary deeds). 
The younger batch of Light investigators, mainly Near and Mello, do get a credit as well, but remain at the second part of the top 10s. 
Now, no matter what the rankings say, you will get a character in this quiz that suits your personality the most. You won't get Light unless you do have a slight manic tendencies and a distorted sense of justice/power cravings. Or, who knows, maybe you are?
