Artists Attempted to Imagine Celebrities in Amusingly Appropriate Professions Based on Their Names

Once upon a time, a person’s surname revealed their occupation. It was simple, straightforward, and a bit boring.

But in this day and age, life is a little more interesting, and we’ve got “aptronyms” to thank for that.

That’s right, folks. We now have people with last names like Painter becoming artists and Cook becoming chefs. It’s almost like they were born to do it! And while we can’t change our names to match our desired professions, we can certainly have a good laugh imagining celebrities in jobs that fit their names.

DesignCrowd threw down the gauntlet and challenged digital artists to come up with the most amusing and appropriate job for each celeb based on their moniker. And boy, did they deliver! From Tom Cruise manning an ocean liner to Orlando Bloom cultivating flowers, these pictures will have you chuckling in no time.
