Gloria Estefan 1
The legendary Cuban singer has a beautiful traditional name, but her full name is a lot longer. The 57-year-old was born Gloria María Milagrosa Fajardo García de Estefan. Can we nickname her Mari or Mila?
Gaby Espino 2
The Venezuelan beauty changed her name to make it in the modeling and telenovela game. Gaby’s name in her birth certificate is Maria Gabriela Espino Rugero. We love Maria just as much as Gaby!
Jenni Rivera 3
Fans fell in love with La Diva de la Banda as Jenni--especially after her hit reality show, I Love Jenni premiered. The famous deceased singer’s real name was Dolores Janney Rivera. Beautiful.
Paulina Rubio 5
La Chica Dorada is also a Sue! The Mexican singer’s real name is Paulina Susana Rubio Rue. Paulina Rue doesn’t quite say pop star! You did good by changing it, Pauli!
Yaya DeCosta 6
The former America’s Next Top Model star decided to go with a catchier name that reality television fans (and Tyra Banks) would remember her by. Yaya’s real name is actually Camara DaCosta Johnson.
The pop star is named after her signature haircolor and Mr. Pink from the Reservoir Dogs. Of course, she wasn't born with the celeb-perfect name. Pink's real name is Alecia Beth Moore.
The pop star's real name is way more common than you may think. Fergie was born Stacy Ann Ferguson. I like how she turned her family name into a unique stage name!
Olivia Wilde 9
She is one of the sexiest women in Hollywood, but she probably would have never been taken seriously with her real name--Olivia Jane Cockburn. Imagine that in bright lights...
