    Name that Celebrity Contest

    My husband and I have a friend who loves Marilyn Monroe memorabilia, and we were browsing around looking for a unique birthday gift for him the other night. Most people know that Marilyn’s birth name was Norma Jean Baker, but we ran across some other celebrity name changes and were a little surprised by some of them. Can you match up the following celebrity names with their actual birth names?

    Post a comment with your answers and you’ll be entered to win a GiftTree t-shirt and shopping tote. Comments will not be published until the contest is over. One winner will be randomly chosen from the correct responses. Deadline is Midnight (PST) Wednesday, November 12th, 2008.

    Thanks for playing!

    30. Sting is Gordon Sumner this is the only one that I know how embarrassing, well done to all those other commentators they really did well. I guess no T-shirt for me:(

    31. Shania Twain ~ Eileen Edwards
      Sting ~ Gordon Sumner
      Ice Cube ~ O’Shea Jackson
      Bob Dylan ~ Robert Zimmerman
      Tina Turner ~ Anna Mae Bullock
      These are the only ones that I know, and hopefully they are right:)
