Coco Chanel Real Name

Just in case you are curious about Coco Chanel's real name, Chanel's name is Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel.  

To be more specific, at birth Chanel's name was entered into the official registry as "Chasnel," because her mother Jeanne was too unwell to attend the registration and her father Albert was registered as "traveling"(her dad, Albert Chanel, was an itinerant street vendor who peddled work clothes and undergarments, living a nomadic life, traveling to and from market towns, while the family resided in rundown lodgings.) With both parents absent, the infant's last name was misspelled, probably due to a clerical error.
