The point I was making was that it is not unusual for people to have another calling name than their first name. I gave you examples of that. What was it in my post that you didn't understand?
It happens all the time in the arts and entertainment profession. The actor Robert Redford was originally Charles Robert Redford. The composer Claude Debussy was originally Achille Claude Debussy. Maurice Ravel was originally Joseph Maurice Ravel. And so forth.
I don't need to mention the cases of celebrities legally changing their names or adopting stage names. That's another matter ... It would perhaps be comparable to popes adopting different names from their baptismal, for regnal purposes ...
