In the Margin: November 2015 – Who are you?

It is an age old tradition for people in certain industries to change their names in order to further their careers. Who can really blame Archie Leach, for example, for changing his name to Cary Grant or David Jones for changing his name to the much less generic David Bowie? Others, throughout history, have adopted pseudonyms to hide their gender; distinguish themselves from another person with the same or similar name; or to protect themselves and their family from persecution. Whatever the reason, it seems that changing your name is almost a rite of passage among actors, musicians, writers and even monarchs and other professionals.
