Orville Richard Burrell (born October 22, 1968, Kingston, Jamaica) better known by his stage name Shaggy, is a Jamaican American reggae singer who takes his nickname from Scooby-Doo's companion, a nickname given to him by his friends, during his teenage years in which his name bore a similarity to the Scooby Doo character.

He is especially notable for his distinctive sub-baritone voice.

Speaking on 'This Morning' on August 27, 2008, Burrell states the name Shaggy is a reference to his then hairstyle.
