According to Wikipedia, he was born Arnold George Dorsey. He changed his name to Engelbert Humperdinck, the name of a famous German Opera composer of late 19th/early 20th century, in order to gain more attention. You have to admit, Engelbery Humperdinck isn't a name you hear everyday. Arnold George Dorsey is his birth name, he changed it after struggling in the music business for a few years after a suggestion from a friend who thought it would give change things up a bit.
