- Originally, Nico & Vinz were named “Envy” but after “Am I Wrong” blew up internationally they changed their name to Nico & Vinz. We decided to do some snooping about other celebrity name changes. Here is what we found:

- Imagine Dragons was originally a Dungeon and Dragons cover band called Puff The Music Dragon. Once the major labels got involved, they informed the guys that due to copyright issues, “Puff the Music Dragon” could no longer be used. Heartbroken by the news, the band sat around trying to “imagine” a new name. Long story short, due to lack of creativity, they’re now Imagine Dragons.

- When David Guetta came to the USA in 1927, his family of hair stylists entered the gates of Elis Island. Unfortunately, at the immigration booth, no one in the Guetta family could speak english, except for little David. Here is where the story gets good. David’s real name is actually Shirley. Little David told the immigration officer, “I’m here for the American Dream! I want to eat, sleep, rave, repeat! I want to be a DJ!”. The guard looked at him and said, “Son. With your long hair, and unfortunate girly name, you have no chance at succeeding. They’ll eat you alive with that name. I’ll do you a favor. Your new name is David. Everybody likes David. Good luck with the career”

People in the 1890s liked Shakespeare because they thought it made them fancy.


English, Ball State University.

Shakespeare in Middletown, 1890-1899.

“A Greek man walks into a tailor’s shop holding a pair of trousers. The tailor takes the pants and holds them up, turning to the man and he says “Euripides?”
“Yes,” the man responded, “Eumenides?””
