Hardy was born Norvell Hardy in Harlem, Georgia. In his first film, Outwitting Dad (1914), Hardy chose to be billed as O. N. Hardy, taking his father's first name as his own. From that time, he referred to himself as "Oliver Norvell Hardy", and eventually became most commonly known as simply Oliver Hardy.
