Is Moses Ingram her real name?

The Hollywood star renamed herself Moses after the biblical figure before joining the Yale School of Drama. Her IMDb profile reports how the star settled for this moniker.

When we got to Yale, they wanted us to register our names because this was the first time they would be publicized so people could see them. Before I got to Yale, I had been trying to make things work, but my name did not feel suited. So I prayed and asked God, 'What is it? I know it is not my name now, but it is something.' A few days later, I heard Moses in my head, and that was it.
