Celebs Who Dont Use Their Real Names

If you are true fans of the celebrities you look up to, you would know that having screen names are quite common. Many celebrities use entirely different titles that don’t even sound similar to their real names.

Others do this because their management tells them. Some do this, so they don’t share the same name with another celebrity. Let’s take a look at some of the most famous people we know who got popular for using a made-up name.

Marilyn Monroe

Born: Norma Jeane Mortenson

Marilyn Monroe was a massive star in the Hollywood industry back in the ’50s. No one was quite like her, and the name “Marilyn” will forever have a link to her. What many of you might not have known is that this isn’t her real name. She was born Norma Jeane Mortenson.

20th Century-Fox executive Ben Lyon was the one who came up with “Marilyn” while “Monroe” was the maiden name of her mother. Since then, almost everyone except for her family forgot about her real name. Monroe had addiction problems for many years, and a barbiturate overdose eventually ended her life at the age of 36 in 1962.
