The film's draft screenplay offers an answer to both instances. I've copied directly from the script itself with the original stage direction placed in [square brackets].

Shrek is taken aback that Donkey isn't scared of him. This seems to be the first time this has happened for some considerable time and the script describes him as " disarmed " and " surprised " by Donkey's exuberantly friendly attitude. His hesitation seems to simply be an extension of this bafflement and mild surprise at the non sequitur question.

I'm an ogre! You know - 'grab your torch and pitch forks'! Doesn't that bother you? When Fiona asks the question, Shrek is described in the script as being "preoccupied". He's clearly trying to decide which way is best to go to avoid the man- and ogre- eating dragon he just evaded and is no mood for an extended chat. Again, the question seems to catch him slightly off guard.

This ties in nicely with the description in the film's official novelisation. Shrek," said the ogre, who was preoccupied with trying to figure which way was out. People usually grab their torches and pitchforks when they first see him, he's never heard someone try to talk to him and ask him his name. Therefore he is momentarily confused when someone asks his name, because he is not used to people approaching him like that, and also as dmckee added below, "he's not used to needing to remember a label for himself".

From this site : bolding mine. The most likely reason would be because he thinks it is strange that someone would ask him that. As hammythepig said, people usually grab their torches - meaning that Shrek is a very lonely person who has no one to talk to because everyone feared him. Since Donkey was the only one who wasn't afraid of Shrek, Donkey was the only one to ask him the question since everyone was afraid of Shrek. Since Shrek never had anyone to talk to before he wasn't social , he probably was deciding if he should answer, resulting in the pause before answering.

As you see in Shrek , he has no friends or any social encounters with anybody. Then in the last movie, you see that Shrek thought he was the only ogre left. That would mean that he was all alone for quite some time. I think it's because he feels hesitation when getting close to people. You have to learn someone's name to get closer and so he pauses because he isn't comfortable with close relationships. He has no name, and has to make up one when he is asked by Donkey.

At the beginning of the movie, he is reading a book, which at the end of the movie is revealed to have 'Shrek' on the cover. He used the name of the book for his own name, because he has no name.

Donkey Shrek is taken aback that Donkey isn't scared of him. This ties in nicely with the description in the film's official novelisation "Well, can I at least know the name of my champion? Valorum Valorum 1. I believe it is because since he is an ogre, he is not used to conversation.

Therefore he is momentarily confused when someone asks his name, because he is not used to people approaching him like that, and also as dmckee added below, "he's not used to needing to remember a label for himself" From this site : bolding mine Shrek: Listen, little donkey.

Take a look at me, what am I? Donkey: Uh Shrek: No, I'm an ogre! You know, "Grab your torch and pitchforks! Donkey: [shakes his head happily] Nope. Shrek: [ surprised ] Really?

Donkey: Really really. Mal I thought of this myself. Another possible explanation is that he has no name and had to make one up on the spot. Do you mind if I ask is this your personal opinion or have you a reference that backs this up? I don't believe he made it up on the spot, because then he would not have hesitated when saying it to Fiona as well. At the moment I do not have any links or backup, it is simply personal opinion you could call it a conclusion based on what we know of shrek's life.

I also thought it was because he was not used to people who did not want to lynch him. Shreik realizes that his name is an Ogre's name, and as such is far less elegant than the non-Ogres he introduces himself to. As if to draw attention to his un-glamorous self.

If you were greeted by nobility with names like "Lord Cuthbernadette" and you introduced yourself as "Snork" or "Toad" you'd feel similar embarrassment.

The book at the end contains pictures of Shrek, Fiona, Dragon and Farquad, suggesting that it was written after the events of the film took place. Featured on Meta. Ways to improve and promote Science Fiction and Fantasy. Related Hot Network Questions. Question feed.
