Inversely, the pervasiveness of this trope has led many genuinely talented people to have to fight the accusations of coattail-riding. This is especially a problem in the acting industry and has led a lot of actors and actresses to change their family names in order to hide from the such stigma, e.g. Creator/NicolasCage (born Nicolas [[Creator/FrancisFordCoppola Coppola]]); an interesting case is Emilio Estevez, who uses his real name professionally so people do not associate him with his more famous father Creator/MartinSheen (born Ramón Estévez) and brother Creator/{{Charlie|Sheen}} (aka Carlos Estevez).

* Cuban-born bandleader Dámaso Pérez Prado legally shortened his name to just Pérez Prado when he became famous as "the King of the Mambo". He mostly toured in Mexico and the US. His younger brother, Pantaleón Pérez Prado, was also a bandleader. He exploited Dámaso's popularity by way of ExactWords--he toured Europe and also called himself just "Pérez Prado", passing himself off as his more-famous brother. Dámaso was no amused, and took Pantaleón to court to prevent him from using that name.
