What is Keke Palmer's real name?
Interestingly enough, Keke's real name is actually Lauren Keyana Palmer. Even some of her most diehard and devoted fans don’t know that she’s been using a stage name for her entire career! During an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live back in 2012 via Parade, she revealed how the nickname came to be.
She said, “Actually, Keke is my nickname. When I was little, my sister was about four years old, and she had an imaginary friend named Keke. She wanted my name to be Keke.” Since so many of her fans know her by her now-famous nickname, it would take quite a while for people to grow accustomed to referring to her as Lauren.
