"Tiger Woods name" is a common term that fans of Woods search for on the Web. Of course, what those searchers want to know is Tiger Woods' real name - as in, his given name, his birth name, his full name.

We can answer all three of those questions at once by relaying what appears on Tiger's birth certificate. Tiger Woods' full, given name is:

Eldrick Tont Woods

But everyone knows him as "Tiger" (and his father had another nickname for him). If you'd like to know why he is called "Tiger" (and what the other nickname is), check out the Tiger Woods nickname page.

Also see Tiger Woods' first name and Tiger Woods' middle name for a bit more minutia, including the origins and original meanings of those names.
