The Name Changes of John Stamos’ Character on Full/Fuller House

Still a heartthrob to his fans, actor John Stamos' best-known character, Jesse Katsopolis on the late 1980's-early 1990's TV show Full House and the spin-off Fuller House, started off with the name Adam Cochran – which he didn't like.

Wanting to reflect his pride in his Greek heritage, he got the producers to change the name – again – from Jesse Cochran to Katsopolis, noted the site Screen Rant in a piece about it.


The changes allowed him to show off his real heritage and bring in other characters to add to it, including Stavros – the womanizer con-artist cousin of Uncle Jesse (who's also played by Stamos) and the visitation of his grandfather Iorgos Katsopolis, also known as Papouli, who taught the kids some Greek traditions.

Stamos played the part as Uncle Jesse for all eight seasons of Full House and an additional five for Fuller House, a man who moved in with his brother-in-law's family to help raise his three nieces, starting off as a lady’s man who softened up to the girls, developing a special bond. It made him wildly popular, and he still is.


EAST LANSING, MI – Lou and Harry’s, 211 East Grand River Avenue in East Lansing, a restaurant, sports bar and catering business all in one, was praised as East Lansing’s “top Greek restaurant” in the Lansing City Pulse (LCP) on August 4.
