A creative meme making the rounds on Twitter takes a stab at reimagining celebrities’ given names—with hilarious results.
First of all, imagine if Ice Cube had been born as “Icelandic Cubicle.” Or if Cardi B was just short for “Cardigan Backyardigan.”

Obviously, and luckily for them, those aren’t their real names. Ice Cube’s real name is actually O’Shea Jackson, and Cardi B’s is Belcalis Almanzar (which she is very proud of, thank you very much).
Twitter’s creativity didn’t stop there. People had way too much fun coming up with plenty more “real names.”
Sometimes, though, celebs’ birth names are just as creative as people might have imagined them to be.
