3. Cardi B
Known as Cardi B all across the world, this musician was actually named Belcalis Almanzar at birth. Cardi B is simply a shortened version of Bacardi, just like the rum. She was called Bacardi by her friends and family, so she finally stuck to the name and later changed it to Cardi B.
4. Natalie Portman
Natalie Portman was born in Israel, and as a result, was a given a Hebrew name according to the traditions. However, when she emigrated to the United States back in 1984, the family decided to change the surname to Portman, which was earlier Hershlag. The first name of this Hollywood star comes from her grandmother’s maiden name, Neta-Lee, which evolved to Natalie! Quite cool, we must say.
