1. Portia de Rossi

In a recent interview, de Rossi went on to reveal how her birth name was actually Amanda and not Portia. She wanted a name that resembled with her identity as a gay person, and she finally settled for Portia. She also shared an interesting story why she actually chose Portia and not some other name. She’s apparently a big fan of Shakespeare, and as some of you already know, Portia was a character in Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice. She chose the surname de Rossi as she was quite fascinated with Italian surnames, the culture and overall awe that Europe generates.

 

2. Alicia Keys

This famous singer and songwriter told in an interview recently that she actually wanted a name that was more apt for the stage, and the name idea she had in mind was “Alicia Wild”! – but her mom apparently refused. She told her that it actually made her sound like a stripper, and thus, was a big no. It was then that this leading singer decided to go for a more music-friendly name, Alicia Keys. She went on to say how her name could open so many doors, truly justifying her name.
