When he located a girl called Dawn Hawn sobbing in a Burger King eventually due to the fact that she disliked her given name, British songs manufacturer DJ Goldie recommended she alter her given name to his: “Goldie.”
In February 2023, we discovered a Facebook meme promoting a fabricated tale concerning how American starlet Goldie Hawn got her name:
In 1996, D&B DJ Goldie saw a girl sobbing in Burger King, she was dismayed due to the fact that she disliked her given name ‘Dawn’. Hey do not weep he claimed, you can have my name if you desire. That lady took place to beGoldie Hawn Always rely on on your own, the globe is your own!
To any individual accustomed to the artists included, it was certainly a joke. Let us count the methods:
- Goldie Hawn was birthed in 1945; DJ Goldie (a well-known British DJ and also songs manufacturer, complete name Clifford Joseph Price) was birthed in 1965.

- By 1996, when DJ Goldie allegedly located her sobbing over her given name, Goldie Hawn had actually currently executed in lots of television programs and also films … as Goldie Hawn.
- Goldie Hawn was birthed with that name (Goldie Jeanne Hawn); she was never ever called “Dawn Hawn.”
