These Pinoy Celebrities’ Real Names Will Definitely Surprise You.

One thing that's never gone out of style in the show business industry? Cultivating a unique persona with the help of a stage name. Even today, as social media influences celebrities to be more authentic and accessible, new stars have traded their names for shorter or more memorable zingers. 

While some completely wipe the slate clean (we're looking at you, Bea!), others simply replace a first or last name. Scroll through to discover the real names your favorite stars. The performer will often take a stage name because his/her real name is considered unattractive, dull, or unintentionally amusing, is difficult to pronounce or spell, has been used by another notable individual, or projects an undesired image. Sometimes a performer adopts a name that is unusual or outlandish to attract attention. Other performers use a stage name in order to retain anonymity. The equivalent concept among writers is called a nom de plume or pen name. In radio, the term "radio name" or "air name" is used.

If you’ve ever thought that a celebrity was destined for stardom purely because they have a cool name, chances are it’s not their real moniker. Thousands of actors and musicians have adopted stage names for a myriad of reasons. Some think they’ll stand out from the crowd with a catchier name, others just really dislike what their parents called them at birth.
