Cat Stevens Changed His Name To Yusuf Islam

August 12th, 2007 Posted in What's in a name?

The fact that Cat Stevens changed his name to Yusuf Islam in 1978 is old news. Yet what is even older is the fact that he was born with the name Steven Demetre Georgiou in 1948.

His girlfriend told him his eyes looked like a cat so he changed his name to Cat Stevens. When he converted to Islam he changed his name to Yusuf Islam. It is important to note that if you read his fascinating history each name reflects so much of the branding of his life during  that time.

The character Crumbsnatcher name was changed by Ms. Sarah, to Mighty Care Finch. The upcoming episodes will either go  back to show more of his character as Crumbsnatcher, look at his name given to him at birth and or explore his life as Mighty Care Finch.

I have had lots of name changes and will probably have more in the future. Many of  them reflect where I have been during different phases of my life.

Have you had a name change?
