It seems like this should exist somewhere but I can't seem to find it anywhere. I am looking for some book or encyclopedia with a list of common mathematical theorems or at least the ones that are common enough to have their own names. Can anyone give me some advice?

    $\begingroup$ Anyway, why do you ask? There are infinitely many theorems that can be stated in ZFC. A large number of them are completely uninteresting. So the answer to the question in the title would be: no, no one has written down a complete list of all theorems. It would help enormously if you clarify your question and limit it to some possibly finite list of theorems. $\endgroup$ – Willie Wong Jan 31 '12 at 15:13
  • $\begingroup$ @russjohnson09 Does my post below answer your queries? If so you can accept it to acknowledge that it does. $\endgroup$ – user38268 Jan 31 '12 at 17:24

You can try:

(1) Wikipedia's list of fundamental theorems

(2) Wikipedia's list of lemmas

(3) Wikipedia's list of misnamed theorems.
