I'm writing out a character called Casey Ellis Ashton. All potentially first names. But they have nothing to do with the character himself. The only point about choosing the name is that he's got three gender ambiguous names, not that he has a potential first name for a last name.

This really isn't much of a trope, since it doesn't affect the character or the plot.

How is this trope not People Sit In Chairs?

Okay, there was a blatant invitation on the page to discuss my experiences with the trope here (apparently discussion pages are the new Troper Tales), so I'm going to do precisely that. My family name is Bruce. I might personally be disqualified on account of having a girl's name, but all the men on my dad's side of the family have Two First Names, like Ian Bruce and Louis Bruce.

I notice someone had added Amy Lee to the real names list and wrote that her birth name was Amy Hartzler. Her birth name is Amy Lee, which should disqualify her from this trope, since she didn't give herself the name.

Do we have a trope for "two last names", e.g. Harrison Ford?

That's an interesting idea but in America, people have been given last names as first names for a while, like Taylor Swift, Parker Posey and Mc Kenzie Phillips. After a while, they'll be accepted as first names.

I notice someone had added Anglina Jolie to the real names list. I realize that "Jolie" is Angelina Jolie's real middle name, but "Jolie" is not a common recognizable first name, so I don't think this should qualify as "two first names".
