Okay, we know Cardi B's real name isn't Cardigan Backyardigan but...is it?

You don't always have to have a cool name to be a celebrity, but it definitely helps. Cardi B...The Rock...Ice Cube. All demonstrably solid monikers that ensure people always remember who exactly these talented performers are.

Still, the internet likes to have a little fun with names from time to time, and the "celebrity's real name" meme proves just that. People are sharing their versions of real celebrity names and the "results" are hilarious.

It all started when one Twitter user said Ice Cube's real name was Icelandic Cubicle which, honestly, kind of checks out.

Soon, people started sharing other "real celebrity names" and they are so creative we have to tip our hats to them.

Cardigan Backyardigan sounds legit, tbh.


Wait, we're sure this ain't it?

I'll be the first to admit Coleslaw is an unconventional last name but it suits him??

First Disney employee to sneak this into the Avengers 4 credits sequence gets 5 dollars.


Is this not a spell from Harry Potter?


This one has a ring to it.






And perhaps the best of the bunch: is there ANY possibility that 50 Cent is actually short for 50th century?
