And if you believe it or not, stage names are more common than you’d think! A lot of celebrities have one!

What’s a stage name?

A stage name is an alias or alternate name chosen by a performer instead of their real name. Stage names are common in the music, theatre, and film industry.

In other industries, aliases are also common, for example for writers. In that case, it’s called a pen name, though.

Why do people choose a stage name?

There are many reasons why performers might want to use a stage name. For some, their real name may be too hard to pronounce or spell or even considered unattractive because it projects an undesired image.

Others might want to distance themself from people with a similar name, or they might want to pay tribute to their musical influence or even just stand out from the crowd. Some want to distance themselves from their family or their own past because they switched careers.

Another reason often is to adopt a name that is very unusual and outlandish to attract attention. One of the biggest reasons often is anonymity, though.
