False identities?

Recommended Posts

A girl that was born in Iran named Claudia Lynx... I find it hard to believe

 

(X Elementz) Ryan and Nick Tyler... I bet their real names are Hassan and Taghi Gholipour....

 

Seriously though, these guys remind of when I first came to the U.S and I was insecure and wanted to fit in... But come on... can't these people just be true to what they are? They seem like they are cool people... But the names kind of ruin the whole picture for me...

 

What do you guys think about this?

its not so much false identities, when you are creating an image that will be entertaining the public, and being the eye of the public you would want a name that sounds appealing. its not just iranians that change there names, many a-list actors/singers entertainers changer there name. a fantastic example: marylin monroe.

i think the false identity should be something close to the real one.i mean if u want the public to be able to remember or pronounce your name better then just chose something that keeps you, "you".not some stupid wholsome name,like Claudia Lynx (its nothing similar to Shaghayegh) she could have gone with shaggy hahahaha but seriously Claudia???????? LYNX????? XXX? pornstar wanna be?LYNX?CATLADY?lol ok i stop before some of u guys start attackin me haha.

 

how about Cameron Cartio?what the hell is his real name?Cameron?lol maybe!

u know...its really common among persians i guess,it has little to do with them being outside of iran,even persian actresses inside of iran change their names just to fit in lol

 

Sheela Khodadad used to be KHEELA KHODAVERDI lol

Shadmehr Aghili's fistname is MOHAMMAD REZA (but i guess he's always been called shadmehr by his family etc)

Shohre Solati => Fateme Solati

Mahasti=> Khadije

Hayde=> Masoome

Katayoun Riahi=> Shahpar Amirebrahimi (hahahahahahaha)

I have nothing against adoption of unique and catchy stage names! But in my opinion an Iranian artist should adopt an “Iranian” stage name, like Marjan who in reality was named Shahla! Or Shohreh whose real name is something else according to herself! But if an artist who only performs Iranian songs for an Iranian market adopts a Western stage name its nothing but pretentious! In particular those who also adopt a Western last-name (surname), that in my opinion is ridiculous! How can you inflict yourself as an Italian/Latino to your fellow Iranians when you don’t have a drop of the blood in you nor even speak the languages?

I think what pourya says is true! but everyone has a right to choose. and about being fit Arash jan, I think its not feeling of being fit its more not wanting to be labeled as iranian. The current situation of our country aside, some people(iranian) here they act so ghetto and embarrassing that you dont want others think that you are kinda related to them.

I bet if these singers could sell their album and work in the west they would never claim that where are they from and whats their name. just like dj alligator. When his videos were on top 20 of mtv he never said that whats his name and sh!t but once he was out of western attention he publicity said that who he his just for making money.

 

I like how niloo is wherever Claudia is :haha:

I must add that usually those Iranian celebrities who actually make it in the "international" arena, or any non-Iranian scene try to somehow keep their Iranian names! For instance Bijan the designer, Arash and Laleh in Sweden, Sarah Shahi the actress, Marjane Satrapi the comicbook artist, Omid Djalili the comedian and so on! Now that’s highly admirable!

Exactly. :kn Add to that list Maz(iar) Jobrani.

 

I can't agree with you Broken Smile on what you said about being afraid of being an Iranian. It's a terrible misfortune that our name has been associated with terrorists or any other stereo type... And we are the ones who can help change that by doing great things and staying true to who we are. Not running away from it by fabricating new identities for ourselves fearing we might lose something...

claudia lynx's name is only for the west, she is actually very popular with american celebs. her real name and what we iranians know her by is Shaghayegh (like gol-e-shaghayegh).

Actually, as far as I know, having a unique Persian name has helped many artists become even more famous and popular in the west. Almost everyone in the west adores Arash himself(the singer) and the name...

what are you talking about, Youre just turning your own statement againt yourself?

first of all someone like, bijan, djalili and etc have been already around for long enough. they became famous when there wasn't a FN escaped monkey like Ahmadinejad and our country's situation wasnt as bad as now!

second, people like Lynx are models, they arent no businessman. people know them by their appearance not by a business name! if they look good by that I mean not like a typical muslim-middle eastern they can easily fake their identity and its very acceptable among others

what do u mean ONLY FOR WEST?how many hames could a person have?lol i mean Claudia ok,she didnt like it when ppl mispronounced SHAGHAYEGH lol but LYNX???????? anywayz i dont think Claudia Lynx is even close to Shaghayegh Saamen.i mean what was wrong with her last name?she could have kept THAT!!!it doesnt say anywhere what her last name is but i have my sources.lol

 

i think she should have chosen an iranian stage name,if she was so proud of her culture and everything as she claimed in her interview.

lol enough of claudia lets start on Arash.hahaha

do u know know rascist you guys are sounding right now????

 

 

yeah lolita tell me about it -

 

 

i actually dont see why there should be so much 'heat' about this subject.. personally, i am very content with my name and would never change it for any reasons, such as becoming an artist.. but thats me.. if some iranians decide to change their name for sth totally different, thats their choice.. changing ones name does not to me mean that that person is fake or false.. however, if lets say asghar from iran started his singing career and then suddenly, asghar was george (fine by me) but then asghar/george suddenly did not speak a word farsi anymore, and no, he now after having lived in lets say the us for like 6 mths was a "real american", thats when i would go hmm, youre fake..

 

but so names, no problem for me =)
