Some Celebrities Only Need One Name

According to the New York Post, Lyndsay Lohan is trying to legally drop her last name, so she will just be known as Lindsay.  This is not the first time (nor the last) that pop superstars have embraced a single-word monicker by which to identify themselves. 

Here is a list of some single-named divas and celebrities, followed by their real birth names, lest we forget that they started out like us mere multi-part-named mortals.  (I did not include stars who are known by only their first name but still officially use their full names, such as Britney Spears, Angelina Jolie, Oprah Winfrey, Brad Pitt, etc.)

Bono - Paul David Hewson

Cher - Cherilyn Sarkisian

Fergie (of the Black Eyed Peas) - Stacy Ann Ferguson

Madonna - Madonna Louise Ciccone

Moby - Richard Melville Hall

Pink - Alecia Beth Moore

Prince - Prince Rogers Nelson

Rihanna - Robyn Rihanna Fenty

Shakira - Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll

Sinbad - David Adkins

Sting - Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner

Any others that come to mind?
