The Mad Men star did say that January Jones would also make a good singers name but that had already been done, "I also found out recently that there was an old singer named January Jones. With this name I could only have been an actress, a superhero or a stripper." said Jones.
January, who is set to star as Emma Frost in X-Men: First Class, admits that most people believe she changed her name to make it more “Hollywood” but in fact it is actually her given name. January said, “my mum and my dad liked how January sounded with Jones. People think that I changed my name to be an actress but my sisters have unusual names too.”
