A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but a chrysanthemum by any other name would be easier to spell. Words of wisdom to be sure and who would know better than Henry Deutschendorf Jr., Charles Hardin Holley or Walter Matuschanskayasky?
What’s in a name? Well obviously, these names never had a chance to become famous. Matuschanskayasky? I nearly sprained a finger just typing it!
The three names above were the real names of John Denver, Buddy Holly and Walter Matthau. It’s common knowledge that movie stars, singers, entertainers of all sorts and even poets and authors often change their names to a pseudonym or stage name.
Two name changes known by many people are Robert Allen Zimmerman and Marion Michael Morrison. You might know Zimmerman for his raspy voice and harmonica playing in “Blowin’ in the Wind” (Bob Dylan).
And we all know Marion. It’s as nice a name as any, but somehow you just can’t picture a Marion sitting up on a horse calling you Pilgrim, can you? (Yeah ... that’s John Wayne)
