Maggie Gyllenhaal, who recently saw her birth certificate, discovered that her name is Margalit and not Maggie.

The American actress said on ABC's Live with Kelly and Michael that her name Maggie was on everything like on her driver's license, passport, everything, ABC News reported.

The 36-year-old actress said that she stumbled across the finding while gathering the paperwork necessary to legally take the last name of her husband, actor Peter Sarsgaard and when she confronted her parents about the name confusion, they didn't remember naming her "Margalit".

Gyllenhaal added that she wished that "Maggie" was her name, but it was not.
