Poll: Yes, That's My Name!

You may have heard of Norma Jean Baker and know that Cary Grant was born Archibald Alexander Leach... anyway, you know that many (if not most) actors and actresses resort to false names in order to sound more glamorous or because their birth names didn't have the same appeal as their public image (or maybe to keep on some privacy).

But these celebrities were actually born to be stars given the catchy or cool-sounding names they already had at birth, they didn't even have to change or shorten the first name or use its nickname equivalent or the middle name instead of it.

So, which of these celebrities' names that didn't need to be altered sounds the coolest?
