What is opie Taylor's full name?
He is only known as Opie Taylor
Opie is a full name it is not short for anything. There are two explanations of the name's origin. One is that Opie Taylor was named by Andy Griffith after bandleader and radio actor Opie Cates. The other is that he was named for Opie Shelton (1915-1999), a childhood friend of Griffith, who went on to become president of the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce.
Opie Taylor's real name is/was, Ronny Howard. He was also on the hit ABC TV-sitcom, Happy Days, from the early 1970s, until the mid 1990s. As a matter of fact, several weeks ago, I was watching, The Late Show with David Letterman, and Ronny Howard was one of the guests on the show that night. Ronny Howard, listed off all of the information on David Letterman's Top 10 List, that night.
