People from Spanish and/or Portuguese-speaking countries and the Philippines if their professional name contains either of their two family names. For more information, see Spanish naming customs, Hispanic American naming customs, Filipino names, and Portuguese names.

Note, however, that other cultures have their own naming customs and systems (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Arabic, Hungarian, Indian, and others), some rather intricate, and minor changes or alterations, including reversing Eastern-style formats, do not in and of themselves qualify as stage names, and should not normally be included. For example, Björk, whose stage name appears to be an original creation, is part of her full Icelandic name, Björk Guðmundsdóttir. Her second name is a patronymic instead of a family name, following Icelandic naming conventions. "Björk" is not a stage name but how any Icelander would refer to her, casually or formally.

People known by generational nicknames: for example, Trey Anastasio (whose full name is Ernest Joseph Anastasio III), Noah Beery Jr., Noah Beery Sr., Lon Chaney Jr. and Pops Staples
People who may be popularly, though not professionally, known by a nickname, such as Robert John "Mutt" Lange.
