Pseudonyms and Stage Names 
Last updated: 18.04.19
Pseudonyms and Stage Names have been and still are used for a variety of reasons. Some because they just do not like their given name or feel that name is not commercial enough.. Others for reasons of gender equality, such as Caroline May Bruggeman Stark using Cy Perkins, where they felt a male songwriter/composer would be taken more seriously.
Then there is the peculiar case of Johann C. Schmid who used the female pseudonym of Marie Louka. Henry Fillmore, Robert A. King and R.G. Grady amongst many others also had a penchant for using gentle sex monickers for their compositions.
