Reginald The Third
When someone's name ends in 'the Xth', X usually equals 3.

When you want a fancy name, possibly an Overly Long Name, tack "III" or "the third" at the end to represent that the person being identified is the third in their lineage with that name. You will almost never meet the second or the fourth.

Obviously, the likeliness of meeting someone who's actually the third to bear the name is realistically fairly low. It's most likely prevalent mainly because of the Rule of Three.
