Fact of the Day: David Copperfields

Magician David Copperfield was actually born David Kotkin. He got the idea for his stage-name from Charles Dickens' novel David Copperfield because he liked the sound of it.

Interesting. So many famous people have changed their name from their original. I should go ahead and be thinking of one in case I become famous someday...

He's also a great magician, because he's made his career almost entirely vanish. Where did it go? POOF!

I always doubted he was born with that name and assumed it was appropriated as part of his act.
