Monty Don's real name: Gardeners' World name sham and how wife Sarah HATES it

“Stung perhaps by grief, my parents for once stood up to the old ogre and dropped George from the equation, adding my father’s name, Denis.”

He continued to explain that when he was 10-years-old, he made the conscious decision to add his mother’s maiden name to his official title: “So by a circuitous route, I accumulated the name Montagu Denis Wyatt Don.”

But unlike many of us, Monty revealed that when he was younger his name wasn’t shortened in their household, due to the fact his mother “hated” the name ‘Monty’.

However, it all changed for him outside of their family home after mentioning this hatred to a pal at school, and from there on the nickname inevitably stuck.
