What is Elton John's real name?

There are few artists who have left as strong a mark on society as Sir Elton John.

Oh, you want proof? Among his many accomplishments, Elton John has: nine number one songs in the UK and US; sold over 300 million records; released seven consecutive number one albums; and put out over 50 top 40 hits.

If that weren’t enough, he’s also an EGOT winner (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony). Oh right, and he’s the most successful solo artist in the history of the Billboard charts era. 

Of course, his biggest success might have been guest starring on The Muppet Show.

Yet like so many entertainers whom we look up to, Elton John has been lying to us — that’s not even his real name! I’ve heard you’re not supposed to trust someone with two first names, and I guess this finally proves it.
