Katy Perry -- Her Name is What?!

Posted on Mar 21, 2011

Kids' Choice Awards nominee Katy Perry is not your typical every day kinda gal. She wears a blue wig, is married to the hilariously out there Russell Brand, and often throws elaborate costume parties with Hollywood royalty in attendance. But when it comes to her original name, she sounds just like a regular Southern gal!


Katy was born Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, but as we all know, there's another celeb running around with a very similar name and we doubt Kate Hudson was going to change her name for the singer! Katy started out performing under the name Katy Hudson, but changed it to Katy Perry before she released her first single. "Perry" is her mother's maiden name and we think it suits her much better than Katy Hudson. Or maybe we've just seen too many Kate Hudson movies...

Do you love Katy as much as we do? Don't forget to vote Katy Perry for Favorite Female Singer and to vote "California Gurls" for Favorite Song!
