What is "Tiger" Woods' real name?
Answer: Eldrick Tont Woods
Woods' first name, Eldrick, was coined by his mother, Kultida, because it began with "E" (for his Father, Earl) and ended with "K" (for his Mother, Kultida).
ESPN - "Tida" selected (actually invented) the name Eldrick, because it began with an E for Earl and ended with a K for Kultida. But, from the second day on, Earl called the baby "Tiger" after a lost comrade in Vietnam, Col. Vuong Dang Phong -- Tiger Phong. "I knew, instinctively knew," Earl said, "that my son was going to have fame. Someday my old friend would see him on television, read about him in a newspaper or magazine, and say, 'That must be Woody's kid,' and we'd find each other again."
Can't say it's the most conventional way to name a kid. I think the only way that something like this would work is you have an incredible nickname. Like Tiger.
