Lucy Hale

Real name: Karen Lucille Hale

Who would've thought Lucy Hale is actually a Karen???

 

Travis Scott

Real name: Jacques Berman Webster II

Travis Scott totally sounds like it could be someone's actual name, so I'm letting myself off the hook on this one.

 

Nina Dobrev

Real name: Nikolina Kamenova Dobreva

A simple shortening I personally never expecte

 

John Legend

Real name: John Roger Stephen

I guess this one's on me for thinking his last name was actually Legend.

 

Natalie Portman

Real name: Neta-Lee Hershlag

Neta-Lee = Natalie. Makes sense!

 

Izismile Video Collection

Bruno Mars

Real name: Peter Gene Hernandez

Huh, who knew? Certainly not me.

 

Gigi Hadid

Real name: Jelena Noura Hadid

A small but significant change!

 

Meryl Streep

Real name: Mary Louise Streep

She'll always be Meryl to me, but Mary Louise is still a nice name.

 

Elton John

Real name: Reginald Kenneth Dwight

Just like his stage name, his real name is regal as hell.


Tina Fey

Real name: Elizabeth Stamatina Fey

This one really threw me for some reason.

Meghan Markle

Real name: Rachel Meghan Markle

But I guess her NEW new name is Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.

 

Jamie Foxx

Real name: Eric Marlon Bishop

Not at all what I was expecting.

 

Mila Kunis

Real name: Milena Markovna Kunis

I actually love the name Milena, TBH.

 

Alicia Keys

Real name: Alicia Augello-Cook Dean

Because she's amazing at playing the piano! Ahhh, I get it.

 

Courtney Love

Real name: Courtney Michelle Harrison

This one's not too far off, but still.


Olivia Wilde

Real name: Olivia Jane Cockburn

Wow.

 

Rihanna

Real name: Robyn Rihanna Fenty

Robyn...Rihanna...she's still the queen of Fenty so whatevs.

 

Halsey

Real name: Ashley Nicolette Frangipane

Raise your hand if you were today years old when you realized "Halsey" is an anagram for "Ashley."


Whoopi Goldberg

Real name: Caryn Elaine Johnson

Whoopi is so iconic, she can call herself whatever she wants.


Calvin Harris

Real name: Adam Richard Wiles

Yes, I know, Taylor Swift called him Adam at that awards show one time, but I completely forgot about that.

 

Spike Lee

Real name: Shelton Lee

Apparently, Lee's mom nicknamed him Spike when he was younger.

 

Kit Harington

Real name: Christopher Catesby Harington

Love how he changed it to Kit. Like a Kit Kar bar!

 

Frank Ocean

Real name: Christopher Edwin Cooksey

Again, this one's on me for thinking his last name was Ocean.

 

And Mindy Kaling

Real name: Vera Mindy Chokalingam

Vera's a lovely name, but she'll always be Queen Mindy to me.
