REG 66Y number plate for Birthday Boy Elton John

Although more commonly known as ‘Elton John’ many people may not be aware that the singer songwriter’s real name is actually Reginald Kenneth Dwight. The world famous musician turns 65 today and to mark this milestone the team at Speedy Reg feel that he really must get himself a personalised registration. He has already made his mark on the world with his music; being known for hit songs such as ‘Candle in the Wind’, ‘Your Song’, ‘Rocket Man’ and ‘Tiny Dancer,’ however to mark his place on the road he should certainly get himself a private number plate such as REG 66Y, (or perhaps husband David Furnish might surprise him with one as a birthday gift).

After failing to make it in the music industry for years in the early 1960’s (despite his obvious talent) Reginald Dwight decided to change his name as he felt his own name wasn’t catchy enough. In 1974 he legally changed his name to Elton Hercules John in homage to saxophonist Elton Dean and musician John Baldry, however he had been using the name since 1967. We are not sure if Elton John ever answers to the name Reginald or perhaps he has burnt his bridges with what he perceived to be an unlucky name. However, if your name is Reginald or Reggie/Reggy for short this would also be a great number for you so why not get in there before Reginald Dwight?
