What many may not know about the Grammy winner is that her name wasn’t originally Miley.
According to E! News, Cyrus was actually born Destiny Hope Cyrus.
“She is a generous woman. She believes that we are all here for one reason: to give back to our fellow human beings. I am truly proud of her,” said her father, Billy Ray Cyrus.

Tyla also reported that the star was given the name after being born with supraventricular tachycardia, which causes an abnormal resting heart rate.
However, her family nickname was “Smiley”, as she often smiled as a child.
This was later shortened to Miley, leading the star to legally change her name to Miley Ray Cyrus in 2008.
