Nope. I still don't get the etymology.

https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/eminem-stan-merriam-websters-dictionary-entry-826557/
Quote from: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/stan#Etymology_1
From Stan (“Stanley”), after the song Stan by Eminem (2000),[1] a fictitious account of the rapper's encounter with an overly obsessive fan named Stan. Sometimes assumed to be a blend of stalker +‎ fan, but perhaps simply chosen for the rhyme.[2]

And normal people (disclaimer: I don't consider myself normal) are expected to know/understand this? Or is this only expected of a certain age and cultural group?

(I'm not even sure how I got to know what "eminem" is, but I guess that came up somewhere in the past and I looked it up, though I never bothered to try and figure out the etymology of that one).

Some kind of play on M&M? And if yes, how does that turn into a name/moniker for a rapper?

Do wrappers need a reason for how they choose their names?
