Not all celebrities use their real names. Some celebs change their name when they decide to test their luck in the entertainment industry. There are many reasons why celebrities change their name. Some stars change their name because a famous celebrity already exists with their name. SAG (Screen Actors Guild) doesn't allow two artists to use the same name (first and last). Some change their name because their name sounds too ordinary or too weird. Whatever their reason might be, some famous actors and actresses have already changed their names. Check these fifteen real name of celebrities and reasons why they had to change them. 
4.Audrey Hepburn's Real Name

When it comes to famous stars, then you would be hard pressed to find a female star who was bigger than Audrey Hepburn. She is still immortalized today, but she would not have had the same success if she had stuck with her real name, which was Edda Kathleen van Heemstra Hepburn-Ruston. That is one mouthful and it would just not work in Hollywood, so Audrey Hepburn was born and the rest really is history.

5.Kirk Douglas' Real Name

Kirk Douglas was a fantastic actor and had a name that was perfect for those movie posters. However, his real name would not have had the same impact as it was Issur Danielovitch Demsky, so you can understand why he changed it to something that was a lot more American. The funny thing is that his real name was also quite cool, but you cannot see it working well in 50s and 60s America.

6.Elvis Costello's Real Name

OK you can imagine him choosing the name Elvis due to being in music, but the funny part is that his real name somehow reflects his personality a bit better than his stage one. His real name is Declan Patrick McManus and in all honesty there is nothing wrong with that name and perhaps he should have stuck with it as it is quite cool for somebody in music.
