Not any old alter ego will do.

Like many celebrities, sometimes it's easier for Miranda Lambert to go incognito when she's out and about. Often, flying under the radar requires a bit of deception, which is why A-listers like Lambert have a stable of fake names to pull from when they're checking into hotels or ordering coffee. Names like Wilma Flintstone and Jane Doe are easy, predictable, and perhaps a little boring. Lambert, however, prefers to keep things a bit more interesting, especially when it comes to placing a coffee order at Starbucks.

"Sometimes I say Miranda, sometimes I make up something," she confessed during a recent appearance on The Bobby Bones Show, a country radio music show that airs in Nashville. "It used to be Tara Dactyl. But I had to change it because people figured it out."

The singer confessed that Tara Dactyl was also know to make an occasional appearance during nights out.

"That was my alter ego—Tara Dactyl—when I would get a little too much whiskey in me probably. And now I've changed my dinosaur to 'T-Ran,'" Lambert joked.
