  Stage name - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A stage name or a screen name is a pseudonym used by performers (such as actors, athletes, comedians, musicians and clowns).
Performers take stage names for many reasons, often because their real name is considered unattractive, dull, unintentionally amusing, difficult to pronounce or spell, or projects the wrong image.
Names so adopted are technically no longer "stage names," but are often perceived as such by the public (and for that reason stage names that come into that category are included in the following list).

 Pseudonym - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A pseudonym (Greek pseudo + -onym: false name) is a fictitious name used by an individual as an alternative to his or her true name.
Some of the naming practices adopted by particular companies enabled the men to be identifiable as members of their companies, much like a serial number: Practices such as assigning men the names of vegetables (the Company of Casaux of the Régiment de Boulonnois-infantrie, between 1764 to 1768) existed.
A special case is the name Alan Smithee, which was used until 1998 (and is still occasionally used) by directors in the DGA to remove their name from a film they feel was edited or modified beyond their artistic satisfaction.

 Name lookup - Using the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC)
The C++ standard prescribes that all names that are not dependent on template parameters are bound to their present definitions when parsing a template function or class.
Only names that are dependent are looked up at the point of instantiation.
This distinction between lookup of dependent and non-dependent names is called two-stage (or dependent) name lookup.

Stage Coach Players began in DeKalb County in the summer of 1947, shortly after World War II had ended and America was ready to entertain and be entertained.
Permission was received to use the farm's antique stage coach as a ticket office, hence the name Stage Coach Players was coined, and the troupe became the area's only live theatre company.
The Stage Coach Players is a non-profit organization with a clear mission "to foster an appreciation of the theatre and create opportunities for all those interested in the theatre to participate." Today, we are one of the oldest, continuously operating community theatre troupes in Northern Illinois.

 Belly Dance: Do You Need A Stage Name?
A dance name is similar to a writer's "pen name" or an actor's "stage name"--it's a name that you use when appearing in public as a dancer.
It is the name you use when you do a performance in public, go to eat dinner at a restaurant where you would like to have a job performing, teach classes, meet with musicians, go out on the town with your dance friends, attend dance workshops, and otherwise move in dance circles.
Your troupe director is probably trying to cultivate a certain artistic "image" for the troupe, and using dance names for the participants may be an integral element in her vision of what that artistic image should be.

 Rotten Tomatoes Forums - Could "Diane" be Betty's stage-name?
i believe the link of dianes mind swapping the name on the name badge of betty to diane because thats how she got the name betty in the first place is too clear to ignore.
THE NAME TAG: saying the name tag swap is meant to show how real-diane created the name betty for her dream is an interpretation (with a number of holes).
Here, rather than saying it's because Betty changed her name to Diane, I think it's easier to say that (being this is Diane's dream) her wish-fulfillment is gradually coming undone.

 Help me pick a stage name! | Ask MetaFilter   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-02)
The stage name should be original, clean (sfw), and at least ostensibly clever.
Note that most of the existing stage names contain some sort of play on the first or last name, and ideally this would too.
While perhaps not technically a true stage name, it's for a stage production where each person is asked to come up with a clever wordplay to use in the credits, and it's called a stage name by the producers.

 Opening An Account With A "Stage Name"
Banks should be willing to open an account in any name for which the customer has primary, government issued identification.
Many banks will allow the mention of a nickname, native American name, or whatever, as long as the legal name is apparent on the account title and printed checks.
Opening an account in the stage name of a performer or the pen name of an author based only on their assertions of professional status reduces identification requirements to the absurd.
