What's in a name? As it turns out, maybe everything.

Since Shakespeare first posited the question in Romeo and Juliet, actors have been using fake names to land professional roles. Not only did it allow them some semblance of privacy before the dawn of Wikipedia, but let's face it, some people just aren't born with great names.

Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O'Connor? Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta? Quite a mouthful.

If an actor or musician's entire career is dedicated to being someone else - a character or personality, perhaps - then a good stage name can go a long way to making that career explode.

More celebrities use pseudonyms than you might think. In fact, here are 67 stars who don't use their real names. Which ones did you know before viewing this gallery?

Lorde
Musical sensation Lorde was given the name Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O'Connor at birth. We'd probably go with Lorde, too.

Jordin Sparks and Jason Derulo enjoyed themselves a lazy Sunday yesterday.

A lazy, revealing Sunday, that is, as the musical couple posed for an intimate selfie over the weekend.

The "Talk Dirty" singer is shirtless and grinning, while the former American Idol champion is donning a black tank top and not wearing any makeup.

"This is the end result face that happens when I'm trying to get @jasonderulo to smile!” Sparks wrote as a caption. “It took an hour!! Lmao! #talksmiletome #smilingismyfavorite."

Last night was not a positive experience for Sean Lowe, as the former Bachelor was given the boot on this week's Dancing with the Stars results show.

But Tuesday marked a triumphant evening for Jason Derulo.

That's because the artist performed for the first time since a serious neck injury early last year nearly left him paralyzed.

But you wouldn't know it from these moves! Watch Derulo do his dancing and singing thing on "The Other Side" now and marvel at his recovery:

Jason Derulo fractured his neck the other night.

While it's a serious injury the singer incurred, it looks like he'll be okay, fortunately, 'cause he later Tweeted this photo of himself chillin' at the hospital.

"I fractured my neck doing tumbling & acrobatics 4 tour!" he wrote, rocking a full neck brace and hospital gown while seemingly in a medical facility.

As it stands right now (though maybe not for much longer), the 22-year-old is due to kick off the U.K. leg of his tour in Glasgow on February 23.

There's no word yet on exactly what the "In My Head" singer was doing when he suffered the injury, or just how debilitating it may prove to be.

But if nothing else, like Adrian Peterson, he appears to be in good spirits:

"Always tryin 2 push boundaries 4 YOU! Like my new chain? ;)"

LOL, and yes. Get well soon man.
