what was marilyn monroe's name when johnny hyde died?
I'm doing a memoir on Marilyn Monroe and I know that her name wasn't always that. it was Norma Jean Dougherty at first then she changed it to Carole Lind I'm pretty sure. Then her manager died and I'm pretty sure her name was still Carole Lind when he died but I don't know. Someone help please?

Carol Lind was a stage name that she used, it was never her legal name. After her divorce from James Dougherty her legal name reverted back to Norma Jean Baker, which it was at the time of Johnny Hyde's death. However she used the stage name Marilyn Monroe. She changed her legal name to Marilyn Monroe in 1956.
