* Johnny Paul Penry, convicted of killing Pamela Carpenter (sister of [[UsefulNotes/NationalFootballLeague Washington Redskins]] player Mark Moseley) and sentenced to death.

** Breivik has taken a great deal of influence from the English speaking Western world so perhaps this can in part explain the phenomenon.
*** The other part possibly being that both Behring and Breivik are surnames (his mother is Behring and his father is Breivik).
** In northern Europe it's rare to see someone without at least three names (even if they don't commonly use the second one), the second name is commonly related to a family member or a celebrity.



* Averted with Adam (Peter) Lanza, perpetrator of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
** The confusion that this caused in the media shows the usefulness of the trope. When the perpetrator's first name was initially reported as "Ryan", [[http://thestir.cafemom.com/technology/148300/wrong_lanza_idd_as_sandy unrelated people named Ryan Lanza were harassed on Facebook and Twitter]] and [[http://www.tmz.com/2012/12/14/connecticut-school-shooting-ryan-lanza-correctional-officer/ reporters surrounded the house of another guy]] who also happened to have the same first and last name (and a different middle name, as well as being a few years older).
* Also averted with most teenage school shooters, e.g. Eric (David) Harris and Dylan (Bennet) Klebold.
** Since his is a very common name, and since he shares a name with a popular singer of standards (and a metal guitarist), Santana High School shooter Charles Andrew "Andy" Williams was a rare example of a teenage school shooter commonly referred to by all three of his names.
** Also played straight with Gary Scott Pennington, who killed a teacher and a custodian and took his classroom hostage.
* James Holmes, the alleged perpetrator of the 2012 Colorado theater shooting, is an interesting case. Most news sources refer to him simply as "James Holmes," almost never calling him by his full name. His Wikipedia article, however, is titled "James Eagan Holmes." Justified, as they have 11 other articles on people with similar names.
