Gallery: 10 Models Who Changed Their Names

This week, Belarussian blonde Tanya Dziahileva moved agencies to Marilyn in Paris and her new show card reads “Dyagileva.” Not such a change (and still as difficult for us native English speakers to say) but it got us thinking: so many models come from far-off places where surnames have many consonants… while other models just had plain Jane names that needed some punching up. Here’s a list of ladies who changed their names.

    Yup, Kasia/Katarzyna. The fun thing is that Struss, to Polish ears, sounds similar to “struś” (ostrich).
