Celebrities are known to stand out amongst the crowd for various reason, one being their names. Numerous celebrities have names, whether they are real or purely for the spotlight, that are memorable and that are hard to forget. Once you see them, it is hard to keep them out of your head or to forget them at all.
Gucci Mane is a popular rapper who has been able to make quite the name for himself in the industry. While Radric Davis is his full birth name, he chooses to go on stage as Gucci Mane instead and has continued to use this for years.
Prince’s name is Prince. On top of this already unique name, he has changed his name to a sign once before. His name, and that change to a sign, has made him more well known than his music, which is hugely popular, of course.
Kesha, which she spells as Ke$ha for the stage, has a unique birth name, as well. She has recently become quite popular because of that name as well as her music, and it is difficult to find someone who has not at least heard the name before.
TI, the rapper who has had a lot of success in recent years, is known mostly by his stage name. While his real name is Clifford, he has been using this for his music for quite some time. Since using the name TI, the rapper has become quite well known.
Just the last two on this list, Beyonce was born as Beyonce. She is famous because of all that she has done and her music, of course, but her name allows her to stand out, which has led to her becoming a household name.
- Wiz Khalifa
Wiz Khalifa is everywhere recently. Most likely, you have heard his name in at least one song in very recent years. Part of the reason you remember that so well is because his name sticks with you. His real name may be Cameron, but it is Wiz Khalifa that we all know and love.
Madonna continues the trend of unique birth names. It is hard to go anywhere without meeting someone who has not heard of her, mostly because her name is not something that you see or hear every day.
Marshall Mathers is a name that you may have heard of once or twice, but he is better known as his stage name Eminem. He is very well known on film and in music, and partly because of the name.
Pink, whose birth name is Alecia, is known by her stage name and how she has embraced it. This is what has made her rise in popularity and become the musician that so many people adore.
Tyga is not a name that you forget easily, either. Just like any other, it is memorable and it is part of why his music sticks with you. Whether you know him by his birth name, Michael, or his stage name, Tyga, he has likely stood out to you because of how unique that name is.
