  • nathybaby

  • @DrDrai1122

    in what world are these normal names?

  • R.A. Dickey

    I love Paula, Paula I dont know you and this is crazy but I would like to have sexual intercourse with you (If you know what I mean)

  • Internet Superhero

    #5 This is why you have a moniker. Try saying that name five times fast.

    • notawittyname

      Not too hard to say 5 times fast if you speak Irish

    • Underbaker

      Heck, I'm not even sure I am saying right the first time.

  • Quote the Raven's real name is William? I'm completely shocked!

    • Mark Wolcott

      …and Usher? I did not know that.

  • Bluntaholic

    4got meatloaf, prolly a few others 2 but I'm kinda hungry & meatloaf pop'd n my head 4 w/e strange reason

  • Duke

    Nothing in compare to their childrens name.
    "Apple blue harakiri green lantern flash gordon " etc

    a REAL celebrity somehow has to chose stupid names for their babies !!

  • stian

    Eithne Ní Bhraonáin ? yea totally normal

    • Simon

      Well, yes. It may well be perfectly normal in Ireland.

    • P90

      It's sounds like someone dropped something on their keyboard.

  • Justin Lentz

    I dont believe it

  • spunkmayer

    It's FORNACIARI, not Fornacirari…

  • tkokilroy

    #15 really….you think we are that stupid?

    • Static

      yeah.. not sure why shes on this list… she doesnt have a "One word" name.

  • XL22

    #15 geez thanks for the update that Oprah's name is Oprah!

    • james

      It's funny because it's not; she was born Orpah.

    • thedude325

      Here's a big one. Tom Hanks a.k.a: Thomas Jeffrey Hanks.

  • myles

    # 11 hardly a name change as impressive as her talent zero

  • myles


  • BigHeadEd

    Never know how to pronounce her moniker: In-Yah or On-Yah. Both sound dirty to me though.

    • MC Hammer

      Try En-Yah, which sounds remarkably like Enya. Like how it's spelled.

    • Booberry ghost


    • zTom

      It's pronounced "Jennifer".

  • bullwinkle

    Real Name: Bullwinkle J. Moose

    • Impressive

      Rocky, real name: Rocket J. Squirrel

    • xrt

      Middle name spelled Jay (for Jay Ward).

  • Nate

    What about obvious ones like Madonna and Prince?

    • gallowaycreations

      Madonna Louise Veronica Ciccone
      Prince Rogers Nelson

  • Dan

    Why is Ludacris on this list? Is he a celebrity?

  • Grouchio

    No Madonna, Prince, Sting, Cher, etc?

    • Nipsey

      Mr. T = Laurence Tureaud

    • goatpunch

      Agree. I call this list all kinds of fail. Who didn't know Oprah's last name was Winfrey?

    • SGT_Fati

      Exactly. How did Prince NOT make this list again?

  • Chris Wheatley

    No Slash?

  • Eric

    #14 pretty sure he legally changed his name to Nene. NBA wouldn't let him put it on his Jersey otherwise.

    • Wymann G. Prickmore

      What are you talking about? The NBA would've found it hilario.

  • Piper

    #18 dubstep sounds like 2 fax machines fucking.
