There are some names which are ever green, you can use them in any decade or period. And on the other hand, some names can never fit the time-zone, they will be either too new to be considered by people or too old to be remembered as traditional and vintage names.

Pseudonyms and stage names have become quite popular lately, and most of the celebs are choosing new and hip-hop stage names that suit their personality. For example, Lliana Bird is known as Birdy and that is what she has chosen for her professional name or pseudonym.

Lliana Bird is not the only example of pseudonyms, there are a bundle of other people who choose a short or cool nickname for themselves. The names can be chosen by the celeb himself or by the die-hard fans who love to call their idols with cool names.

Then some names change the trend, no matter the era.These names are categorized under:
