Some titles for tropes are short, and easy to type (even with the double brackets in one word titles). Some titles are long and annoying to type, since we have to make sure to capitalize every word, which involves a lot of attention to the Shift Key. Some are even hard to remember, such as {{Sssssnaketalk}} (that's 5 esses).

But in some cases, the long name is necessary. Some titles just don't properly convey what a trope is if they are too short. This has led to a lot of confusion with some tropes. Take XanatosGambit, which many have confused with any brilliant scheme. It isn't (most of those actually fall under BatmanGambit now), and now it has Plan A Plus Plan B as a redirect (We even ThePlan as a supertrope for generic use). It's a bit more to type, but it makes the meaning of the trope clearer (although Xanatos Gambit is still the main name for it).
