How did Enrique Iglesias get his name?
Enrique Iglesias was born Enrique Miguel Iglesias Preysler.
In the mid-1990s, Iglesias did not want his father to know about his plans for a musical career and did not want his famous surname to help advance his career. Approaching his father's former publicist, Fernán Martínez, the two promoted his songs under the stage name 'Enrique Martínez' with the backstory of being an unknown singer from Guatemala. Later in his career, he switched to the stage name Enrique Iglesias.
