Real name: Karen Lucille Hale
Who would've thought Lucy Hale is actually a Karen???

Travis Scott totally sounds like it could be someone's actual name, so I'm letting myself off the hook on this one.
Real name: Nikolina Kamenova Dobreva
A simple shortening I personally never expecte
Real name: John Roger Stephen
I guess this one's on me for thinking his last name was actually Legend.
Real name: Neta-Lee Hershlag
Neta-Lee = Natalie. Makes sense!
Real name: Peter Gene Hernandez
Huh, who knew? Certainly not me.
Real name: Jelena Noura Hadid
A small but significant change!
Real name: Mary Louise Streep
She'll always be Meryl to me, but Mary Louise is still a nice name.
Real name: Reginald Kenneth Dwight
Just like his stage name, his real name is regal as hell.
Real name: Elizabeth Stamatina Fey
This one really threw me for some reason.
Real name: Rachel Meghan Markle
But I guess her NEW new name is Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.
Real name: Eric Marlon Bishop
Not at all what I was expecting.
Real name: Milena Markovna Kunis
I actually love the name Milena, TBH.

This one's not too far off, but still.
Real name: Olivia Jane Cockburn
Real name: Robyn Rihanna Fenty
Robyn...Rihanna...she's still the queen of Fenty so whatevs.
Real name: Ashley Nicolette Frangipane
Raise your hand if you were today years old when you realized "Halsey" is an anagram for "Ashley."
Real name: Caryn Elaine Johnson
Whoopi is so iconic, she can call herself whatever she wants.
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.
Real name: Shelton Lee
Apparently, Lee's mom nicknamed
him Spike when he was younger.
Real name: Christopher Catesby Harington
Love how he changed it to Kit. Like a Kit Kar bar!
Real name: Christopher Edwin Cooksey
Again, this one's on me for thinking his last name was Ocean.
And Mindy Kaling

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