Frederick Dierks Bentley was born on November 20, 1975 in Phoenix, Arizona...His middle name, Dierks (which he now uses as his first name publicly) is actually his maternal great-grandmother's surname.

And according to interview with Dierks:

My family's big into the whole family name stuff, I think. My brother's named Fife, and that's a family name. So we just kind of pass things down. But I can promise you this: There won't be a Dierks Jr., because my name ... it's too difficult. I'm going to name my kid, like, Ed. It's got to be something easier than Dierks, dude.
