This is a list of notable people best known by a stage name consisting of a single word.

This list does not include the many famous people who are commonly referred to by their surname (e.g., Liberace, Mantovani, Morrissey, Mozart, Shakespeare); it is quite common and regular for surnames to be used to identify historic and pop culture figures.

This list is incomplete; you can help by adding missing items. (April 2009)
