If I asked you who Caryn Elaine Johnson was would you know? Well, the next time you see Whoopi Goldberg at the grocery store yell Caryn and she will turn around. I’ve always found it interesting why some celebrities go by different names. Sometimes their original name is too awkward or “unattractive” by someone’s opinion and usually I would imagine that managers and advisers have urged the stars to come up with other names.
Either way…..the real names have made their way into the public view and here are a few of them according to our friends at POPSUGAR.COM
Whoopi Goldberg = Caryn Elaine Johnson
Tom Cruise = Thomas Cruise Mapother IV

Jonah Hill = Jonah Hill Feldstein
