What’s in a name? A lot...

A lot, if you’re a celebrity. We ask actors what their name means to them, and if they would ever change it

Sophie Choudry
“I really love my name. I would never change it because it was given to me by my dad and was taken from Sophia Loren — the most beautiful women ever. In Greek, it means wisdom.”

Shazahn Padamsee
“My name means queen of the world. I love it... it has special meaning for me because my father gave me this name.”

Minissha Lamba
“My name is different from Manisha. In school, every teacher would stop at my name while taking attendance and check what exactly it was. So, I think my name has a good recall value. You just can’t miss it.”

Dino Morea
“I love my name. I have never wanted to and I will never ever change it. It is short and fun.”

Kinshuk Mahajan
“In school, I would get teased about my unusual name. My parents kept it, so I love it. It means ‘flower’.”

Jacqueline Fernandez
“I am named after American President John F Kennedy’s wife, the famous Jacqueline Kennedy. It’s a unique name and I quite like it.”

Kay Kay Menon
“A lot of people confused me with the singer KK and I’d get calls on his behalf but not any more.”
