Pseudonym generator

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

A pseudonym is 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 different reason entirely for picking a stage name.

A pseudonym often isn't all that different from a regular name, but pseudonyms are ideally 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 pseudonyms or stage names, like the Screen Actors Guild, which doesn't allow duplicate names, which means some people have to change their name (like Emily Stone, now known as Emma Stone). Fortunately the change can be small, like a different initial. Michael J. Fox did this, his original name was Michael A. Fox.
