It’s not uncommon for musicians to swap their given names for something a little flashier  and for some musicians, that stage name is for good reason.

Here is the best disappointing musician name that — at the very least — will prove your clunky name is not a career-killer. Just take it from the Reginalds and Declans among this list who’ve, incidentally, taken home Grammys despite their natural-born swag deficit.

Aliaune Damala Bouga Time Puru Nacka Lu Lu Lu Badara Akon Thiam

He is the first solo artist to hold both the number one and two spots simultaneously on the Billboard Hot 100 charts twice.

Akon has had four songs certified as 3× platinum, three songs certified as 2× platinum, more than ten songs certified as 1× platinum and more than ten songs certified as gold in digital sales. Akon has sung songs in other languages including Tamil, Hindi, and Spanish. He was listed by the Guinness Book of World Records as the #1 selling artist for master ringtones in the world.
