'What's in a name?' was once said by Shakespeare

But our celebrities have a contrasting outlook here, according to them everything lies in a name. Celebes changing their names is nothing new in glamour industry. From ages glamour industry has been experiencing this general trend.

Back in the 1950's and 1960's any person breaking into show business was encouraged to change their real name to a stage name. A stage name is a pseudonym that a celebrity chooses to be recognized by, rather than their given birth name. Even today, many celebrities change their names for a variety of reasons. Be it superstars or a new entrant everyone wants a unique identity. They often consider their real names as unattractive, dull, unintentionally amusing, already used and that's why many celebrities resort to adopting a new name. But that's not the only reason other factors like superstition, numerology or just a sexy connotation are also equally responsible to enthuse Bollywood stars to change their names. While some feel that their names lack interest than others want to conceal their family origins. Sometimes certain names are such which are difficult to spell or pronounce and instinctively changed.

Sometimes performers wish to adopt a name that is unusual (sometimes even outlandish), memorable, or that complements his/her performing persona; or because they wish to remain anonymous in relation to another sphere of work.

Let us take a look at our favourite stars who changed their names and are ruling the roost.
