Although the No Doubt front woman has always gone by the same stage name, she legally changed her name to Gwen Stefani Rossdale after marrying Gavin Rossdale in 2002. The former couple, who share three children -- 10-year-old Kingston, 7-year-old Zuma, and 2-year-old Apollo -- finalized their divorce last year.

Stefani has since moved on with Blake Shelton, whose marriage to Miranda Lambert also ended in 2015.
