Change for Fame

One well-known example of a successful name change, from the world of entertainment is Judy Garland. Her birth name, Frances Ethel Gumm doesn’t have quite the same ring does it? And it is perhaps in the entertainment industry that we find most of this type of name change, where performers like Maurice Joseph Micklewhite famously became Michael Caine and Richard Walter Jenkins reinvented himself as Richard Burton. Comedian David Walliams had to choose another name when he registered with Equity, the actors union, as another actor named David Williams was already registered.
