Short for Claude Definite Name or something. Basically, they were originally planning you to change the name, and Defname is describing how the first name is not definite. Nothing to do with surname.

I'm pretty sure "defnam" is "default name." Like General Goose said, we were originally going to be able to change the character's name, and "Claude" was the default name, and it would be his name if you didn't choose one for him.

As for his real last name, I always thought it was "Speed," from GTA2's Claude Speed, who is possibly the same Claude in GTA III.

He doesn't have a second name. His name is just 'Claude'. Like Cher. Only more... criminal-y.

He is generally referred to as "Claude Speed", because of the striking similarities with GTA2's protagonist, who is named Claude Speed.

We never find out his last name, the game's files say his name is only "Claude", but you can freely call him Claude Speed, it's not like someone's gonna kill you for doing it.

Ok, I hadn't thought of definate name, it's just that In the short movie in gta 2, he had brown hair and (debatable) died in the end. Claude in gta III, had ( what looked like ) green hair and killed catalina at the end. I just thought that it was Defnam or something in case I misread it. But Claude Defnam does sound like something R* would come up with.

First things first,he doesn't have green hair, he has brown hair.

Second, "Defnam" stands for "Default Name" in the data files, and rockstar never made a stupid name after GTA2.

I have it on PS2, and it looks like Mr. Claude no-name has green hair. Second, they ( if it's true) played as Claude again and is called Claude Speed. Third, They might not have made stupid protaganist names, but they DID put in stupid names in other GTA games. Fourth, if Claude is from san andreas, he's bound to have a stupid name. They did put in stupid names like Mr. Teal, that sounds too much like a slave chimp, Lance Vance, that's just stupid!

Name one stupid name please. NOT including GTA1, 2 or London '61, '69.

Also, proof that Claude doesn't have green hair. PC and PS2 textures are identical.

OK, just something off topic for a sec: Mr Teal is a codename. It's not a real name. It was inspired from the Reservoir Dogs characters being called stuff like mr black, pink, etc.

I don't know what's his last name but it's NOT Speed! Claude Speed is character from GTA 2 and it is not the same character as the GTA3's Claude. Just get it.

yes it is...in the gta 2 live action film he wears the exact same outfit as claude does in gta 3. similar hair and face. looks a bit different cus one is a real guy and the other isnt.

and by gta 3 it seems they werent gonna remake him..but ended up doing so as the file says claude in it

its the same claude, only the dropped the speed bit i guess cus really, it is a bit of a crap surname

and the whole personality thing, he seems to have one in gta 2...but gta 2 is by now set 4 years into the future...maybe since the days of gta 3 set 8 years ago. he gained one since then, people can change and be the same person mostly. i guess gta 3 claude was a quick hasty attempt to ramke the one from gta 2


i have said why i think its the same claude, i have yet to see any real argument as to why he isnt. aside from "its just co-oinsidence" noone ever says why though or why they think that

Well doesnt gta 2 appear in 2013? Because, according to that wall in GTA 4, claude is dead in 2008? It had like, Vic tommy and claude on that wall..

The claude in SA, he is young cool.gif
I don't like the SA claude.

And, in gta 3 on ps2. If that is what you are talking about... He doesn't have green hair >_>

It's also unknown to be SPEED, but that's what I use tounge.gif .

Also IMHO Fido is just a nickname, not Claude's last name. That's just my opinion.
