What are the quotations about? His father, Ramon "Martin Sheen" Estevez, named him Carlos. That is his name. "Charlie" is a nickname for Carlos/Charles.

I don't get how this has become such big news. I guess it just goes to show how backwards the US is on certain subjects. I've heard/read people say/write, "But he's white?"... Yes. There are "white", "black", Asian, native/indigenous and mixed Latinos. In South America and the Caribbean there are lots of people who don't identify with their non-Latino roots, despite having German, Russian and other ethnic surnames.

Charlie's father, a supremely talented actor, used "Sheen" to help him get more acting work in a largely anti-Latino country. One of his 4 children followed suit. That should be a much bigger shocker than Carlos reclaiming his birth name for the upcoming Robert Rodriguez film.
