Did you ever want to change your name?

Kathie Lee and Hoda are taking a survey.  I have wanted to change my name for as long as I can remember.  I hated my name growing up.    Now at almost 58 years old I decided that I like the name Elyse.  I know people that have changed their names.  What about the celebs?  They do it all the time.
If you changed your name what would you choose?

Some celebs who changed their names.

Charlie Sheen - Carlos Irwin Estevez
Nicholas Cage - Nicholas Kim Coppola
Elton John - Reginald Dwight
Meg Ryan - Margaret Hyra
Natalie Portman - Natalie Hershlag
Whoopie Goldberg - Caryn Johnson
Woody Allen - Allen Konigsberg
Marc Anthony - Marco Antonio Muniz
Chevy Chase - Cornelius Chase
Winona Ryder - Winona Horowitz
Jodie Foster - Alicia Christian Foster
Bruce Willis - Walter Willis


  1. I don't know but I don't particularly like my name; Ann Jamie Schneider Mindicino (quite a mouthful!) - I love Elyse Rose - great pen name; i named both kids so they could drop the last name & have good "famous names" (not really on purpose - just worked out that way ie: Nicholas Henry & Melony Hope. No offense to my in laws who I love just like the short versions better. You probably didn't like Elyse b/c it was not very common but Ann? I was named for grandmother whom I never knew. It's a big responsibility to give a child a name; they kind of grow into it!

  2. I think that Ann Jamie is very pretty. I also love your children's names. I named my daughter Alexandra so she could have options and be able to play around with her long first name. But now that I look back, my nickname was Lisi and I actually like that. My mom's middle name was Ann and my sister is Terri Ann. So Ann, I like your name!!!
