    Shania Twain

    Date of Birth
    28 August 1965, Windsor, Ontario, Canada

    Height
    5' 4" (1.63 m)

    Mini Biography
    Shania Twain was born as Eilleen Regina Edwards in 1965, the middle of three daughters to Clarence and Sharon Edwards (sister Jill is two years older and Carrie-Ann three years younger). When she was age 6, her mother remarried Jerry Twain, a full-blooded Ojibwa native from Timmins, Ontario, who adopted her as his own. She started out singing in bars as a child after hours, and, at 13, appeared on "The Tommy Hunter Show" (1965). When she was 22, her parents were killed in an accident, and she became the legal guardian of her half-brothers (Mark, then 13, and Darryl, then 14) and sister, putting her musical career on hold to raise her family. In 1991 she changed her name to Shania (meaning "I'm on my way" in Ojibwa, it was the name of a co-worker), and signed a contract with Mercury Nashville that same year. Her first album went by without notice, but her second album (produced with (Mutt) Robert John Lange, who she wed in 1993) broke world records with its sales!

      She's a bitch that won't acknowledge her real family. Look it up, her real name is Eileen Edwards!

      Before you start calling a woman a bitch, you might do some homework.

      Why the last name of Twain?
      Shania Twain was born Eilleen Regina Edwards in Windsor, Ontario, daughter of Clarence and Sharon Edwards. Her parents divorced when she was two and her mother then moved to Timmins, Ontario with Eilleen and her sisters Jill and Carrie Ann. Sharon married Jerry Twain, an Ojibwa, and they had a son together, Mark. Jerry adopted the girls, legally changing their last name to Twain.
      Why Shania as first name?
      1993–1994: Shania Twain

      A couple of years passed and Twain's siblings got older and moved out on their own. Twain assembled a demo tape of her songs and her Huntsville manager set up a showcase for Twain to present her material to record executives. She caught the attention of a few labels, including Mercury Nashville Records, who signed her within a few months. During this time, she changed her name to Shania, an Ojibwa word which means "on my way".
      This info was taken from the Wikipedia.

      Re: Shania Twain

      Yeah and Wikipedia is such a source of accurate information. I know her family (the Edwards') and excluding her father (as I know the story of that time) they are really good people and when Eileen's paternal grandmother passed away (whom she was in contact with up until and including when she married Mutt) she didn't so much as send a card. So before you accuse someone of not doing their homework you should do yours!

      I did my homework before I start calling someone a bitch out of the blue.

      If you do not like her, fine (it is a free world and everyone is entitled to an opinion).
      But if you want to help improve this website I suggest posting quality instead of bad language.

      Re: Shania Twain

      I thought these boards were about freedom of speech. Ah well that's one way to end good dialogue - pseudo threats. Next time I'll be sure to say she's a bad bad person instead of bitch so I won't offend anyone with my bad language. Hey admiral_drayson you should head over to the porn threads (as if you hadn't already) and rain on their language parade.

      Pretty common knowledge, actually. She has never gone out of her way to hide her family history. How she chooses to relate to her family is really none of your business, is it? Did you ever stop to think that she uses a stage name in an attempt to protect her family from rabid fans and assholes?
