Quotes: Gunman with Three Names
Whenever they took him down, he heard his name on the radios and TVs. Lee Harvey Oswald. It sounded extremely strange. He didn't recognize himself in the full intonation of the name. The only time he used his middle name was to write it on a form that had space for that purpose. No one called him by that name. Now it was everywhere. He heard it coming from the walls. Reporters called it out. Lee Harvey Oswald, Lee Harvey Oswald. It sounded odd and dumb and made up. They were talking about someone else.
Libra by Don DeLillo

Booth: Why do these rednecks always have three names? James Earl Ray, John Wilkes Booth...
Oswald: Lee Harvey Oswald!
