Would You Change Your Name Like Stan Lee or R?
The legendary creator of Spider-Man, Black Panther, and the X-Men has died after revolutionizing the comic book and super hero genre. But, when he started as Stanley Martin Lieber, he used a pen name because “I felt someday I’d be writing the Great American Novel and I didn’t want to use my real name on these silly little comics,” said Lee.
Lee eventually legally changed his name as have scores of authors, actors, writers, singer and entrepreneurs. Here’s the thing: most entrepreneurs forget that your name is the beginning of your brand. And, if you’re tired of spelling your name, explaining its origin, or feeling as if it just doesn’t fit, change it!
