“John Legend is a nickname that some friends started calling me, and it kind of grew into my stage name. ‘Legend’ is something that I never would have chosen for myself originally. It grew to the point where more people in my circle would know me by that name than by my real name. I had to make a decision,” John told MTV News.

Nicki Minaj is another celeb that changed her birth name. Born Onika Tanya Maraj, she changed her name to “Nicki Minaj” after her manager convinced her that she had to change her name.
