You don’t have to have the radio on for more than five minutes before Nicki Minaj is asking for “Your Love”, Drake is asking to “Find Your Love” and Trey Songz is talking about those “Love Faces” you used to make.  With so much play time, these artists are obviously having a monstrously good time on the charts.

So it’s no surprise they’ve captured our attention and got us wondering what’s behind the pink wig and distracting muscles. What could they possibly be hiding? How about their real names? If the theory that resume-friendly names get the interview shouldn’t there be some truth to the fact that attractive names get the iTunes download or radio play? Even fame monster Lady Gaga knew Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta would take her but only so far.

We did a little digging and discovered a long list of hot celebrities who dumped their real name for a bright, chart-topping stage name. We wrapped them up in a fun quiz to see how many you can guess correctly. Some might stump you.
