As I am looking for a nice name for baby#2, I stumbled into this page about celebrities' real names. I really chuckled upon knowing that Caryn Elaine Johnson is actually Whoopi Goldberg and that Stanley Kirk Burrell is (MC) Hammer.
Among the real names, I really liked Laura Jean Reese Witherspoon (Reese Witherspoon). I would have preferred Susan Alexandra Weaver over Sigourney Weaver. I also like Robert James Ritchie better than his celebrity name as Kid Rock. But of course, I think I'm more traditional and really their celebrity names sound more interesting.
By the way, did you know that Aliaune Damala Bouga Time Puru Nacka Lu Lu Lu Badara Akon Thiam is now known simply as Akon? Hmmm. I think I better think twice before giving a mouthful of names to my child. He/She might want to change it when he/she becomes famous!
