In 2014, The Weeknd, 32, explained to an inquisitive fan the genesis of his stage name in a Reddit thread and said that he intended to name his first mixtape The Weekend instead of House of Balloons. He also added he despised his name “at the time” and decided to adopt The Weeknd as a pseudonym, dropping the “e” because a Canadian band had already claimed and copyrighted the moniker, NME reports

Once Twitter got ahold of this information on Sunday, they jokingly started sending the Canadian singer-songwriter ideas for other stage names.

The “Blinding Lights” singer told his followers they were funny and said he might “pull a YE” by changing his name to just Abel and drop his last name; his real name is Abel Tesfaye, according to Complex. 

Last October, rapper and producer Kanye West legally changed his name to Ye, according to Complex.

Producer Mike Will Made It backed his tentative decision and tweeted, “I f–k w it,” E! Online reports

The Weeknd spoke to GQ last August about how he has to draw the line between his stage name and his actual name.

“The lines were blurry at the beginning,” he said, according to GQ. “And as my career developed—as I developed as a man—it’s become very clear that Abel is someone I go home to every night. And The Weeknd is someone I go to work as.”
