So it was confirmed today that Rebel Wilson‘s real name isn’t Rebel Wilson!

The Aussie actress was actually born Melanie Elizabeth Bownds, though she did change her last name to Wilson.

Melanie Elizabeth sounds like a nanny’s name, not a brassy and sassy comedienne’s.

Melanie Rebel’s hardly the first celebrity to change her name. Did you know Olivia Wilde‘s real name is the not-so-pleasant sounding Olivia Cockburn? Or Portia de Rossi is actually the far-less-exotic Amanda Rogers?
