Meme Of The Week: Twitter Comes Up With Stupid Celebrity Names

You may think you know a celebrity, but you might not even know their real name. This feels particularly sucky when their name has become an identifier, having a sort of life of its own, like Brad Pitt, whose real name is William or Meghan Markle, whose real name is Rachel. The shock is almost unbearable. The point is, this is a thing that famous people do, creating names that better suit their image and that are more memorable than the ones that they were born with. Your feelings of betrayal don’t matter.
