Eilleen Regina Edwards

Shania Twain shared the foundation story of her stage name during an appearance on Apple Music’sHome Now Radio: “In a nutshell, I was created, Eilleen Regina Edwards, and I was adopted and I became Eilleen Regina Twain. I QUICKLY became a specialist singer and I needed a stage name that sounded just a little less like my grandmother’s name, because I’m named after my grandmother, both my grandmothers, Eilleen and Regina. I believe, in my own mind, I was not really attempting to be called my grandmother’s name onstage, therefore i decided to change it out to Shania Twain. I met somebody with the name Shania, thought it had been beautiful, and Shania Twain was created.”
