Speaking to W Magazine in 2017, the star explained how, aged 16, she learned that another ‘Emily Stone’ was already registered with the Screen Actors Guild. Initially, she went with Riley Stone, but she soon realised Emma was a better fit.
15. Prince Harry, real name Prince Henry.
Like his wife, The Duke of Sussex Prince Harry also goes by a different name than the one on his birth certificate: Henry Charles Albert David.
As a child, he was referred to as Harry (Henry and Harry are often interchangeable) and the name stuck.
