At birth, Cash was named J. R. Cash. His mother wanted to name him John and his father preferred to name him Ray; J.R. ended up being the only compromise they could agree on. When he enlisted in the United States Air Force, he was not permitted to use initials as a first name, so he changed it to John R. Cash. In 1955, when signing with Sun Records, he started using the name Johnny Cash.
