List of stage names

This list of stage names lists performers alphabetically according to surname (assumed or genuine) and their nickname. Individuals who have dropped their last name and substituted their middle name as their last name are listed. Also listed are individuals who have changed the spelling of one (or more) of their legal names (such as Willem Dafoe). People whose main forename just happens not to be the first one (such as Paul McCartney and Marie Osmond) are not listed here—these are their real names, not stage names.

Also, people who are referred to by merely a shortened or informal version of their given name (such as Bob Barker and Jimmie Rodgers) and people who may be popularly (though not necessarily professionally) known by a nickname (such as Robert John ("Mutt") Lange) will not be listed here.
