If you do the research, you'll find out that quite a few rappers have very unique real names. Although most of them are solely known to the public by their stage names, friends and family address these celebrities with totally different titles. Whether the name is derived from their nationality or totally composed of the creativity of a parent, some rappers have names that fans totally don't see coming.

Did you know that Future's real name is Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn? Of course, if you're a diehard that's common knowledge but the occasional listener has no idea. According to Nameslist.org, there's only 14 people with the name Nayvadius in the U.S. and no one given that name to their child since 2014.

Iggy Azalea also has a rare name. The Australian rapper's government name is Amethyst, which is the birthstone for February. The purple stone is a beautiful sight just like the rapper even though she was born in June. Most are also unaware that Plies' real name is Algernod. The name is really close to Algernon, which has origins in France and means "having a mustache."

The rappers named are not alone and you'll find out many more rappers with odd names in the gallery above including Tupac's birth name. Check it out.
