How about, Jean Harlow, born Harlean Harlow Carpenter & Hillary Brooke, born Beatrice Peterson?

Harlean Harlow? What cruel parents she had. A few more: Winona Ryder was originally Winona Laura Horowitz, Tom Cruise was Thomas Cruise Mapother, and Martin Sheen (needlessly, I think) changed his name from Ramon Estevez.

I think I got Martin Sheen but I will add the other ones as well.
I always though Cruise was just Thomas M Cruise III

According to imdb.com, it is Thomas Cruise Mapother IV.

Thanks for the info. I will change it. or Add it.

wow, I did not know A LOT of these... and many of them don't make any sense... i do find it incredibly funny that David Carridine was originally named after his father's alias and then went by an alias.

oh yeah, rodney dangerfield is Jacob Cohen... Tim Allen is ironically Timothy Alan Dick... Luke Perry is Coy Luther Perry III

few of my favorites

Albert Brooks, born Albert Einstein
Diane Keaton, born Diane (or Annie) Hall
Gig Young, born Byron Barr and named after his character in "Gay Sisters"

Michael Keaton was born Michael John Douglas.
Stewart Granger was born James Lablanche Stewart.
Vera Miles was born Vera June Ralston.
Janet Leigh was born Jeanette Helen Morrison.
Hulk Hogan was born Terrence Gene Bollea, not Terence Hogan.

Johnny Cash was born J. R. Cash but when he joined the Airforce, they would not accept "J.R." as a given name when he enlisted, so he became John R. Cash. When he signed with Sun Records in 1955 he had his name changed again, to Johnny Cash.
