I recall being informed as a child that Hitler's original name was not Hitler at
all but "Schickelgruber."

According to Wikipedia, it was Adolph Hitler's father Alois, who was born
illegitimate, who for the first 39 years of his life bore his mother's surname,
Schicklgruber (as was the practice for illegitimate children in Austro-Hungary).
He then took the name of his stepfather, Johann Georg Hiedler, which was changed
for him in the future to Hitler.

Since Alois was not a blood relative of Mr. Hiedler, there is no way his son
Adolph could be a biological relation to Abraham Hitler.
