Gatsby was an invention. It wasn't his real name. Gatsby was son of a poor farmer and in order to win Daisy's love, he created a hole new identity and became rich. The story is an example of the American dream: that you can become anything no matter where you come from, even if you are poor. But the story also rejects that as Gatsby has to become criminal to achieve his prosperity.
