That's right. Correct me if I'm wrong, but:
He was born with the name Quentin Jerome Tarantino. When his mother remarried (to Curt Zastoupil), his name was legally changed to Quentin Jerome Zastoupil. Tarantino isn't legally his name anymore. He uses it as a stage name. Like how Nicolas Cage's name is really Nicolas Coppola, Quentin Tarantino is really Quentin Zastoupil.
I'm not sure if he changed it back. If he hasn't, my guess is that, although Curt and his mother divorced, he keeps it because he still considers the Zastoupils his family. Or he's just lazy.
I can't really remember where I got this info. It was probably from Jami Bernard's book which is like 10 years old. I don't remember any info about his name since then. He probably has changed it back.
