Demi Moore is an American actress, model, filmmaker, and songwriter.

Demi’s biological father was Charles Foster Harmon, Sr., who had left Demi’s mother, Beverly Virginia (King), before Demi was born. Demi was raised by her mother and stepfather, Dan Guynes. Demi has three children with her former husband, actor Bruce Willis, including actress Rumer Willis. Her surname is from her first husband, musician Freddy Moore.

Most of Demi’s recent ancestors were born in the U.S. (specifically, for the most part, the American South), with many of her traceable foreign-born ancestors being English and Scottish.

Demi is a follower of Kabbalah.

Demi’s maternal grandfather was William Marshall King (the son of Edward McDowell King and Blanche Campbell). Blanche was the daughter of John Alexander Campbell and Betty LaVelle Carr.

Demi’s maternal grandmother was Elizabeth Marie Metcalf (the daughter of John Carrol Metcalf and Effie May Graves). John was the son of Warner William Metcalf, Jr. and Martha Catherine Gunn. Effie was the daughter of George Aaron Graves and Elizabeth “Bettie” Childers.

Shouldn’t her real first name, Demetria, be listed somewhere in this profile?

Yeah right. Just like Rebel Wilson’s first name really is Rebel.

I’m not sure what you’re saying. Is it that Demetria must be Moore’s birth name because she was so much more likely to have been named Demetria than Demi? I mean, what even?

I saw a short documentary on her life and career today and it said her name was Demetria. I googled it and came upon publications that have printed her name as Demetria. Then I concurred that her name is most likely not simply Demi, as it inherently sounds like its short for something. Then I came here and posted my question.

Then you posted her own response to the accusation.

I instantly made an association with another famous person that denies her first name. It was gut reaction. Just normal human thought process.

Demi took her professional name from her first husband Freddy Moore.

I think this was Demi’s biological father Charles Harmon, Sr.: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/delcotimes/obituary.aspx?pid=173706062

The man in that obituary isn’t the right one. He had a “wife of 63 years” in 2014, which means they married around 1951. Demi was born in 1962, to a different mother.

This is Demi’s father:
