From an interview in 2002 he stated that he was a mixture of German, Irish and Cherokee among other things. There are some rumors on the internet that Depp also has Lebanese heritage, though this is not confirmed.

Some of Depp’s biographies state that his family name Depp is of French origin, derived from the names Pierre Deppe or Dieppe. He jokingly says that his surname means “idiot” in German.
