Many people have some sort of nickname, but it can still be surprising when you learn that your friend鈥檚 鈥渘ame鈥 is actually their nickname. This is exactly what happened when we learned today that former-first kid Sasha Obama鈥檚 name isn鈥檛 even Sasha! How we didn鈥檛 know this for eight years while she and sister Malia lived in the White House is BEYOND us.

According to Twitter, this past weekend saw 鈥渢he first anniversary of learning that Sasha Obama鈥檚 real first name is Natasha,鈥 and people are shook. We first learned that Sasha鈥檚 real name was Natasha when she took a summer job in Martha鈥檚 Vineyard last year, but people seem to have forgotten. While Huffpo claims that Sasha is 鈥渁 known鈥 nickname to Natasha, it鈥檚 actually a Russian nickname for the name Alexander/Alexandra. Regardless of the name鈥檚 history, people of the internet are freaking out.

Obama isn鈥檛 the only famous person who uses their nickname IRL. Prince Harry鈥檚 real name is Henry Charles David Albert, and both Demi Lovato and Demi Moore鈥檚 real name is Demeitra. Even Bruno Mars is the singer鈥檚 family nickname, as he was born Peter Gene Hernandez and nicknamed 鈥淏runo鈥 as a baby. As a teen, he would tell people his talent came 鈥渇rom Mars.鈥 A star was born.
