Stage name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random stage names for all sorts of artists.

A stage name is usually a fake name taken by an artist for various reasons. Some do it to avoid being seen as 'the child of' another famous artist as many people will consider that to be the reason the person got famous as well and not because of hard work. Some pick it because their real name is hard to pronounce, write and/or remember and some have a completely different reason for picking a stage name.

A stage name isn't all that different from a regular name, but stage names are usually easy to remember and to pronounce. Some examples of famous people include Katy Perry (Katheryn Hudson), Natalie Portman (Natalie Hershlag), Jamie Foxx (Eric Marlon Bishop), Nicholas Cage (Nicholas Coppola) and Vin Diesel (Mark Sinclair Vincent).
Some organizations will have rules for stage names, like the Screen Actors Guild, which doesn't allow duplicate names, which means some have to change their name. Fortunately the change can be small, like a different initial. Michae J. Fox did this, his original name was Michael A. Fox (A stands for Andrew).
