Is Zayn Malik changing his stage name? – Report

Will Zayn Malik now become known as someone else? A new report is out staying that the former One Direction star is thinking about changing his stage name?

4 Music reports: “Zayn’s birth name sounded the same, however it was spelt Zain. It was during the X Factor process that Zayn changed the way it was spelt as it was thought Zayn was more rock ‘n’ roll.”

Additionally, a source close to One Direction says: “Now that Zayn is no longer a part of One Direction, he wants to move on from the band and get on with his normal life – and that means ditching the name. It’s not a drastic change, as Zayn was only ever a stage name and he just feels like he’s outgrown it.”

Hmmm. Will he just be Zain now? That could pop although looking at this spelling it seems that the ‘y’ does make a difference. LOL.

Do you want him to stick with his birth name “Zain?” What should be his new name? Sound off in the comments below!
