Not all celebrities use their real names. Some celebs change their name when they decide to test their luck in the entertainment industry. There are many reasons why celebrities change their name. Some stars change their name because a famous celebrity already exists with their name. SAG (Screen Actors Guild) doesn't allow two artists to use the same name (first and last). Some change their name because their name sounds too ordinary or too weird. Whatever their reason might be, some famous actors and actresses have already changed their names. Check these fifteen real name of celebrities and reasons why they had to change them.

A 20th Century-Fox executive had suggested 'Marilyn' as first name. Marilyn Monroe had chosen her mother's maiden name 'Monroe' as her last name.
