Quiz: Do you know these actors' real names?

Not everyone is born with a perfect television name like Lucille Ball. See if you can pick the given name of some TV legends.

It's no secret that celebrities change their names. For various reasons, aspiring actors will alter their names to something short and punchy for the marquee. Not everyone can be born into a perfect TV name like Lucille Ball, Bob Denver or Art Carney.
