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?

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

Shania Twain made her concert comeback in Las Vegas after an eight-year hiatus, wowing a sellout crowd with her hit songs - and form-fitting catsuit.

The audience gave Shania, who looks unreal for 47 or any age, a standing ovation as she cruised onto the stage on a motorcycle dressed like this:

"Thank you. Thank you so much. You guys are going to get me all emotional, and then my eyelashes are going to fall off," Shania said to the Caesars Palace crowd.

Pretty sure no one was looking at her eyelashes at that moment.

Fourth, schmorth.

With America's Independence Day coming up on Wednesday, it would be easily to overlook Canada Day today ... but that would just be a travesty.

Some of Hollywood's hottest stars, young and old, hail from north of the border - some of whom you might not even realize were Canadian!

On July 1, Canada's holiday commemorating the anniversary of becoming a united country, here's a gallery of some of the most noteworthy ...

After going through a bitter divorce, Shania Twain proved she is not one to stay down for long. The singer married Frederic Thiebaud earlier this year.

Last night at the CMT Music Awards, meanwhile, the country crooner proved again how well she can bounce back from a fall... literally!

Walking to the stage to present the Male Video of the Year, Twain took a nasty spill in front of the entire crowd. But she laughed it off, presented the trophy to (an absent) Blake Shelton and joked about the incident later.

Watch Twain eat some carpet below and then check out another gaffe at the ceremony: Sheryl Crow's crotch shot!

Just two weeks ago, we learned Shania Twain and Frederic Thiebaud were engaged. The engagement didn't last long ... they got hitched last night!

The country superstar and her companion of several years got married in Puerto Rico on New Year's Day, her rep confirmed to People this morning.

Shania Twain, who confirmed the engagement last month, became involved with Frederic Thiebaud after their original spouses had an affair.

Congratulations to the Thiebauds!

"Adjusting to life after separation and divorce, I needed to lean on others more often than I was accustomed to," Shania wrote to her fans online. These people have been gifts, and I am fortunate to have so many of these beautiful people."

"Talking about love, I'm excited to share some personal news - I'm in love! Frederic Nicolas Thiebaud has been a precious gift to me; a compassionate, understanding friend. Over time, an amazing love has blossomed from this friendship."

It sure has. We wish them both the best. In other New Year's wedding news, Valerie Bertinelli and Tom Vitale also made it official Saturday!

It's official. Shania Twain is engaged to Frederic Thiebaud.

"I've never seen Shania so happy," a pal tells Us of the country singer, whose rep confirmed she is getting married to the Swiss-born businessman.

Thiebaud popped the question about two months ago.

The couple's road to matrimony was an exceptionally complicated one. Thiebaud is the ex-husband of Twain's former best friend Marie-Anne Thiebaud.

Marie-Anne is also the woman Robert "Mutt" Lange, Twain's husband of 14 years, abruptly left her for in May 2008. That's ... yeah, that's complicated!

Twain and Frederic reached out to one another in the wake of the stunning double betrayal, and were spotted vacationing in Canada, NYC and Florida.

Adds the Twain pal, fittingly: "She has ended up with the love of her life."

Looks like they made it! Congratulations to them from all of us at THG.

By dating Frederic Thiebaud, Shania Twain has raised eyebrows.

He's the ex-husband, after all, of her friend Marie-Anne Thiebaud - who had been having an affair with Shania’s husband, Robert 'Mutt' Lange. That's drama.

Well, eight months after she began dating the husband of the other woman, it is being reported that Shania Twain and Frederic Thiebaud are getting married!

The couple showed off matching "promise rings" - hers silver with diamonds, his just silver - at Shania’s secluded cottage on the Lake of Bays in Ontario.

They "can’t wait" to make it official.

Shania Twain's husband, Mutt Lange, cheated on her with this dude's wife. Now she's getting the best revenge by getting engaged to Frederic Thiebaud! Supposedly.

A Star Magazine insider (there's a contradiction in terms) says Shania and Frederic have been discussing wedding plans and hope to tie the knot next year.

“[Frederic Thiebaud] is the only person that Shania trusts outside of her family,” says another insider. “She feels so lucky to have found him.”

This story is probably complete crap, but Mutt Lange is still an idiot.

On an unrelated note, Shania turns 44 today. Happy birthday, girl!

A month after separating from her husband of 14-year, Mutt Lange, Shania Twain is speaking out about her heart break.

The singer posted the following message on her website yesterday, referring to Lange's alleged affair with Twain's former friend, Marie-Anne Thiebaud.

"As I am sure you have seen or heard; I am going through a rough time personally in my life. I wanted you all to know that I could not be getting through this without you. Your letters, emails and words of encouragement give me strength.

Your overwhelming support reminds me to smile, no matter how deep the pain and to always be grateful for all the beautiful blessings in my life.

I have so much to say but I know the best way for me to speak is through my music. This is my therapy, my passion, and my love. I look forward to sharing it with all of you as I begin this new journey.

I need some time to heal this broken heart but make no mistake; I will be back and hopefully stronger than ever."

Let's hope so! Send in your thoughts and prayer to Shania now.

As Marie-Anne Thiébaud's name has become synonymous with "dirty, lying adulterer," the former secretary for Shania Twain and Mutt Lange has finally spoken out.

Thiébaud was contacted E! News at her home and told the celebrity gossip network:

"I know what you're ringing to ask me about. But, when marriages break up they break up for all sorts of complicated reasons, it's never just one reason. And those reasons should be kept private. If you're looking for a person that broke up a marriage then you have the wrong person. I'm not that person."

Thiébaud declined to comment any further on the rumors, asking that the press not "intrude into people's private lives."

Good luck getting that wish to come true, Marie-Anne Thiébaud.
