We must say, Fergie suits the Double Duchess — also, another nickname for the actress — well. But what’s her real name? The “My Humps” singer’s real name is Stacy Ann Ferguson (via The Famous People). Eerily similar, but just to be clear, Fergie has no family relation to the actual duchess, Sarah Ann Ferguson.
Stacy Ann is a fine name. But back in 2013, the “Glamorous” singer filed a petition to legally change her name from Stacy Ann Ferguson to Fergie Duhamel citing to “conform to the first name which she is commonly and professionally known as, and has been for many years” (per Hollywood Reporter). Alas, even a judge and court couldn’t make the singer’s new legal name stick. After her amicable divorce from actor Josh Duhamel, Fergie decided to stick with her OG birth certificate name and requested an official name change yet again during her divorce proceedings (per ET).
It’s been a merry-go-round of name changes for this “Big Girls Don’t Cry” pop star. But as we stated earlier, she’s in good company with her fellow chameleon colleagues in show biz.
