What's In A Name?$$$$

Watching the in-depth interview with the Exciters on the main forum, it occurred to me that almost every well-known group from the 50s, 60s, and 70s changed their original name at or around the time of signing with a record company. Most of the Motown groups originally had different names as well. Now, I wonder if that was a general "practice" in the recording industry for nefarious reasons......or maybe not? hehehehehehe....

For example:

The Temptations were The Elgins
The Supremes were The Primettes
The Miracles were the Mascots
The Four Tops were the Four Aims
Martha and The Vandellas were The Del-Phis
The Marvelettes were The Casinyets
and on and on and on.........
