What's Stevie Wonder's Real Name?


Question: What's Stevie Wonder's Real Name?
What is Stevie Wonder's real name? And how did he become known as Stevie Wonder?
Answer: Wonder was born Steveland Hardaway Judkins in Saginaw, MI, on May 13, 1950. He later altered his name to Steveland Morris when his mother married.

While performing for some of his friends in 1961, Stevie was discovered by Ronnie White of the Miracles, who helped arrange an audition with Berry Gordy at Motown. As the legend goes, Gordy immediately signed the 11-year-old youngster and renamed him Little Stevie Wonder.
