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.

She's not Christina Aguilera, but she has risen from little-known dance act to one of today's major international music superstars. Such is the life of Lady Gaga.

There's no disputing her sales. But how do you know she's really made it? Because she was invited to perform at Sting's annual Rainforest Fund benefit show.

On Thursday night, Gaga was on-hand for the star-studded show at New York's Carnegie Hall, which also featured performances by a roster of music greats.

Elton John, host Sting, Bruce Springsteen, Mary J. Blige, Blondie's Debbie Harry and many others were there - the first two performing with Lady G herself.

She has her detractors, but Gaga brings her A-game to every concert. Follow the jump for a second video of the rumored hermaphrodite rocking with Sting.

While legendary crooner Sting may sing about the "Fields of Gold," it appears as though he and wife Trudie Styler enjoy a Den of Sex.

As the UK's Daily Mail reports, talk of the raunchy private life between Sting (real name Gordon Sumner) and Trudie Styler has included swingers' parties, strip clubs and Tantric sex sessions lasting several hours.

Now, there's tangible evidence of this couple's tastes that make the love making world of Jessica Sierra look tame by comparison...

A peak inside the 56-year-old rock star and his wife's Manhattan apartment reveals a bedroom with unusual Helmut Newton paintings. In one, a woman lays virtually naked, legs spread in the back of a vintage Mercedes as a man leans over from the front seat to unzip one of her spike-heeled boots.

In the other, above the bed, we see the lower half of another female wearing just stockings, suspenders and high heels.

Styler has said she finds these prints to be "hot."

The couple has four children, which equates to the number of times we threw up in our mouths as we published this revealing story.
