* RFK assassin Sirhan B. Sirhan. This is on account of Arabic naming customs (Sirhan was a Palestinian Christian); his full name (Sirhan Bishara Sirhan) is entirely UsefulNotes/{{Patronymic}}: Arabs didn't get on to this whole "surname" thing until relatively recently, so it's common to have one's grandfather's name as the last name, and it's also very common to name your eldest son after your father.

Sometimes, a character either a) is so very funny, BadAss, awesome, or all three, they don't deserve OnlyOneName, or b) has a MeaningfulName to the Nth degree that no other name works. What do you do?

* The hero of Creator/MartinMcDonagh's play ''The Pillowman''' is named Katurian K. Katurian. Guess what the middle initial stands for. His parents "were funny people". Given the context, and the dual definition of "funny", he probably meant they were strange rather than amusing. They are funny-peculiar rather than funny ha-ha.

**Though this ''may'' be a case of an omitted comma, since he's given a different first name later in the story.
