1. Her Real Name Isn't Miley
Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus welcomed a baby girl on November 23, 1992 and named her Destiny Hope Cyrus, thinking she'd accomplish great things with a name like that. While their daughter did go on to become rich and famous, she did so under her longtime nickname, "Miley." People called her "Smiley" because she was such a happy baby and over time the nickname got shortened to "Miley." The star legally changed her name in 2008. Today, only her grandma still calls her "Destiny."
