(Newser) – What if celebrities actually went by their given names? Ross Luippold imagines that alternate universe on the Huffington Post:

  • Flavor Flav: William Drayton just doesn’t have the same ring to it.
  • Jon Stewart: He would be hosting The Daily Show With Jon Leibowitz.
  • Larry King: Lawrence Zeiger Live? Not quite as catchy.

  • Diane Keaton: Annie Hall would have starred an actress named Diane Hall.
  • John Wayne: Marion Morrison? Not quite as manly.
