On an artist's page, we only have the option of Original Spelling. Could we maybe expand on that?

Example: https://lyricstranslate.com/en/emma-shapplin-lyrics.html

She uses her stage name "Emma Shapplin" but was born "Crystêle Madeleine Joliton".

Citation :

Country: France
Languages: Italian (Medieval), English, Greek (Ancient), Spanish
Genre: Classical, Opera, Pop
Original spelling:
Birth Name: Crystêle Madeleine Joliton
Official site: http://www.emma-shapplin.eu
Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emma_Shapplin

Another example (one with the name written in the language's original script).
https://lyricstranslate.com/en/nikola-urosevic-gedza-lyrics.html

Let's say the artist went by a stage name like "Nikola Urošević". The following categories would be filled:
Original Spelling: Никола Урошевић
Birth Name: Никола Урошевић Геџа

Feel free to make suggestions on this suggestion.

Yeah, I've noticed some users writing the birth name of artists in that field.

I may be wrong, but wasn't there a suggestion of expanding that field even more, showing how to write an artist's name in several scripts? At the top of my mind I'm not sure, but I think I've seen something like that ages ago.

I don't remember this suggestion then. It would be cool to expand that list to include:
1. Other spellings
2. Aliases

Some people also list the band members in that field.
Also, while we usually add a new artist page if the artist/band changes their name, while they can be linked via "related" I think, it might be better to have some clearer option, also to avoid duplicate song entries.
