Marilyn Monroe was just her stage name. Her birth name was Norma Jeane Mortensen.

Marilyn Monroe (aka Norma Jeane Baker) hated the name "Marilyn Monroe" because she thought it sounded fake. She was proud of the name "Norma Jeane Baker" and didn't really want to change it, but her producer (? or someone) made her. I like the name Marilyn though. It's only tainted for me because Marilyn Monroe (or should I say, Norma Jeane Baker) disliked it so.

There seems to be a bit of debate up there over Marilyn Monroe's ACTUAL surname.
The lovely Ms. Monroe was born Norma Jeane Mortenson, but she went by Norma Jean Baker in life, and in some of her early modeling and acting was credited as "Norma Jean Dougherty."

I immediately think of Marilyn Manson, who of course chose the name after Marilyn Monroe and convicted mass-murderer Charles Manson for shock value.
