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.

We know many musicians who have made the move from the radio to the screen. Some have been successful and some have been Britney Spears.

(Don't pretend that watching Crossroads isn't on your list of regrets.)

But there are more than a few actors out there who possess vocal talents greater than or equal to their ability to bring characters to life via carefully scripted screenplays. 

Here are 15 actors who are surprisingly good singers ...

Hayden Panettiere
Hayden Panettiere is a tiny powerhouse of talent. She performs her own songs on hit show Nashville, where she portrays a country music artist.

You might not know it by looking at them, but these actors have often parlayed their singing talents into acting gigs. In some cases, they've abandoned the acting world altogether for music.

And then there's Kristen Bell.

Jamie Foxx, Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone stopped by Ellen this week for an interview that was likely far more revealing than any of the stars had originally planned.

The host had her guests play a game of "Never Have I Ever," prompting them to answer whether or not they had ever had a one-night stand... stolen anything from her dressing room... or sexted.

Yes, sexted, Andrew Garfield. Come on. You know what that means.

The segment, and a subsequent line of questioning, was especially funny/awkward because Garfield and Stone are a real-life couple.

Learn a great deal about The Amazing Spider-Man 2 cast now and watch Garfield grow especially uncomfortable with the line of questioning:

Jamie Foxx has denied that he is dating Katie Holmes after rumors of the alleged romance sent the celebrity gossip world into a tizzy Tuesday morning.

Speaking with Entertainment Tonight's Nancy O'Dell last night, the Oscar-winning actor shut down the talk as not only untrue, but "hilarious."

"[The rumors] are one hundred percent not true," he said. "In fact, it's hilarious because we simply danced at a charity event along with a lot of other people."

It was reported that Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx were spending a lot of time at her NYC pad after their friendship turned romantic at a benefit this summer.

Foxx also pointed out that he and Holmes' ex-husband, Tom Cruise, his co-star in 2004's Collateral, have long been close friends. In other words, bro code.

The end.

Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx know how to produce the viral clips.

With last week's "Channing All Over Your Tatum" video still setting the web ablaze, and their new movie coming out this week, they're making the media rounds.

And showing off their salsa moves on Univision's Despierta America:

The White House Down co-stars learned to salsa dance with the show's anchors, and while Channing had a tougher go of it, he was a good sport.

We'd still Channing all over his Tatum. Whatever that means.

Foxx, for his part, showed that he is truly a man of many talents in the performing arts, matching the male Univision correspondent step for step.

These two need to make movies together all the time, BTW.
