The vintage-style crooner admits in several interviews that her original name, Elizabeth Woolridge Grant, was never her forte. According to Press Party, who published a radio interview with Lana back in 2012, she wanted her name to be as beautiful as the music she was looking to create. Well, it worked, and the name is definitely a little more memorable than Lizzie Grant would have been – sounds like a figure skater or something.
