Here's one from the British Invasion: one of the Beatles' fellow Liverpudlians was Cilla Black. Her real first name was Priscilla, which does explain "Cilla" as the stage name, but what was her real last name?

9/12. It would have been 10, but I had a foggy moment when I'd forgotten that Muddy Waters was McKinley Morganfield...
