Miley Cyrus, Lana Del Rey & More: Celebs Who Changed Their Names For Fame (PHOTOS)


Have you ever wondered how some celebrities have names that are so perfectly fitting?

If we told you that Destiny Hope has "two personalities" and is famous because of acting and singing and it's always a "Party in the USA" for her, would you guess the multi-talented star? If you said former Hannah Montana actress Miley Cyrus, you'd be right!

Now, with all the good and bad press around breakout singer Lana Del Rey (aka Lizzie Grant), Celebuzz thought it best to look back at some other stars who've changed their names for fame. Click the pics and let us know which stage name is your fave.

Besides Lana, Katy Perry, Pink, and Demi Moore are a few other pop stars who have made a drastic image change, but it seems the "Video Games" singer is being put under much more scrutiny for her Hollywood makeover. However, it is getting this Brit Award winner quite a bit of notoriety. She even got spoofed by Kristen Wiig on Saturday Night Live after her performance on the sketch show got terrible reviews.

    but she didn't change her name for fame...Miley was her nickname as a child and everyone called her that so it would just make more sense to change it permanetely to Miley Ray Cyrus.
