Ditch Davey (born July 30, 1975, in Melbourne) is an Australian actor.
He was born Kristian Lind Davey, but legally changed his name to Ditch when he was 18. Ditch came about because his older sister could not pronounce Christian, so instead she ended up calling him 'Ditchin'. As the years went on 'Ditch' became a nickname so on his eighteenth birthday Ditch Davey was who he became when he also took his stepfather's surname.
