Have you ever wondered what your favorite entertainer’s real name is, gone to Google and been surprised by what you found? (If not, you must not have ever wondered what Akon’s whole name is.) In this wacky trend, Twitter users re-imagined celebrity names and created hilarious fake Google searches that would explain why some celebrities decided to cut their titles short. From Cardi B. to Ice Cube, no one was safe.

Cardi B.

The Backyardigans were named Tyrone, Uniqua, Tasha and Austin. The name Belcalis honestly could have fit right in!

Nicki Minaj

If you don't get this Nicki joke, please watch the video below. You're welcome. 

Ice Cube

Icelandic Cubicle could be the name of his next movie. 


Is Clarence truly that far off from Marshall?

J. Cole

Coleslaw is disgusting. Don't @ me. 


There already is, and forever will be, only ONE New York!

Lil Yachty

Why does adding 'ester' to the end of last names make it sound so boujee?

Snoop Dogg

Oh, the sophistication!

Bow Wow

Better known as The Dog Who Cried Private Jet.

Benedict Cumberbatch

Honestly, this man's name could have been left alone, and it wouldn't have made a difference. 


All that autotune is bound to cause a headache. 

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson

He's his adorable baby's rocking chair! 

P. Diddy

Diddy, P. Diddy, Puff Daddy… has changed his name enough times without our help. 

Lil Uzi Vert

Wait, why is Lilian actually fitting for this baddie?


Jaynew Zealand? I mean, he's good on any boulevard!


Y'all couldn't at least name him after the good tea?

André 3000

Dang, my mans can't even round?!

Post Malone

Posthumous? Is he dead?

50 Cent

A man who has always been ahead of his time. 

Wiz Khalifa

This was a missed opportunity to make a Wizard Kelly joke. "Nothin' but net y’all!"

Frank Ocean

Oceanography? I thought he'd be more into tornadoes. 

Lil Kim 

Y'all are just so petty for no reason!

End of story – we're not sure why y’all are like this or who raised you, but we do know you’re all far too much. These celebrities are just trying to live their lives. But we’re lowkey living for this, so keep them coming!
