No, everyone KNOWS his first name is James. It's James Hook.. but was it before that?
I can see that.`That obsessive "I'll get him!" thing too.. I mean granted feeding your hand to a crocidile is a little different then running away from prison.. but still.
This question got me thinking and I found this...
"Lest anyone think Hook's name too convenient, Barrie notes that "Hook was not his true name. To reveal who he really was would even at this date set the country in a blaze".
I have a feeling you wern't really looking for an answer to this question...but I really wanted to know myself...

Holy crap! You sooo rock! I really was looking. Man JM Barrie has thought of everything. He was cool even BEFORE Johnny Depp played him.
Speaking of.. anyone seen Finding Neverland?
Bring your kleenexes.
Oh the wonders of the internet, you can find anything.
No problem, glad to help anytime.
I saw it twice! Made me cry both times! It's one of my favorite movies!!!
Johnny Depp is like Oprah... Anything they touch turns to gold!
It's soooo try. Kate Winslet is amazing in it too. I was most impressed.
I saw it and didn't cry... does that make me insensitive?
Souless I think. ;)
I'm not certain that I would have cried before I had my child, but now that I have a kid I see everything on a different level.
hook? from neverland hook?! yah didn't peter chop his hand off with his mighty dagger? it's amazing how small his weapon is and yet he was able to cut ppl's hand's off i bet hook just really suck at swining his sword just like how he never leaves
But peter Pan knows what to do with his sword....
That sounded dirty.
peter pan never had a sword though, it was always shown he used a dagger...and if hook was really after peter he would have his pirate crew kill everyone on the island.. but nope he just sits on his boat cause a little dmg here and there and then wait for peter to show up i guess he hads a riddler condition
Hmm...I wonder...Me wuvles Peter Pan =-D
Me too! I just saw the silent film version last night. Very interesting. Lots of lesbian under/overtones. I was surprised.
Have you seen Finding Neverland yet?
I know I'm harping but it's the best film of the year.
I've seen it twice! And both times I bawled like a baby. It's my new favorite movie. Johnny Depp is just amazing and Kate Winslet rocks my world. It is the best movie of the year :-D.
Most definitely. I was so pleasantly impressed. They better sweep the awards.
His name was ......?
His Mom was tweaked.

Re: I have an answer! (about 11 months too late)
I love you. :)
Captain Darling, of course. You know, in the parallel-universe musical theory.
(actually i prefer to think his name was really Hook for irony's sake, but damn JM Barrie doesnt have my sense of humor, or he was trying to be all political or something. whatever)
Ahh, JM Barrie. I love him.
But the idea of Darling being Hook always weirds me out because I always consider Hook so damn sexy... I don't know. lol
in the jason isaacs version, yes.
but in the dustin hoffman version? really?? and in the musical?? i mean he's gotta be gay. LOL
I've seen some hotties in the musical. hehe. And Jason Isaacs is my man and he's the most recent live action one I've seen, so I know that's influencing my decision.
