It seems as though many gay men like to go by three names, why is that? Neil Patrick Harris, of course, James Duke Mason, Belinda Carlisle’s son, and there are more who aren’t well known. If gays have two names, many seem to have a first name for a last name, such as Adam Keith, or Paul John.

Assassins and other notorious killers often go my three names (e.g., John Wayne Gacy, Lee Harvey Oswald). I think it is to be very specific. Also, sometimes politicians (e.g., MLK, JFK, LBJ, FDR).
As for the Gays, I hadn’t noticed.
I go by a single name.

Actors do it for the gravitas, I think. It makes them sound more important. Serial killers get referred to by their full names to distinguish them from other people with the same first and last name (Henry Lee Lucas for instance.)

It’s very common. Gays want to be special and different.

I use an initial before my two names. Does that make me a three name gay.

Actors with three names often do it because there’s already an actor with the same two names so they add a third (often their middle name) to delineate.

Hmm...I have three last names. It's a Southern thing.

Didn’t we previously observe that gay men don’t use nicknames? Robert not Bob, Richard not Dick, etc.?

R15 Your comment reminds me: I always wondered about WALTER Payton. Was he gay? There were little tiny quivers under the radar but nobody wanted to say anything.
Sorry, I know it's not three names but R15's comment triggered me.

What the three names of the guy on "Modern Family?"
|by Anonymous||reply 28||Last Friday at 1:16 PM|
What about four names?

[R15] it’s both, gay men love full names and three or more. Those with three names also like to wear snappy bow ties.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson, the only gay in the cast, the only one with three names. Proves my point.

The reason a lot of actors go by three names is because some other actor before them registered their name with the Screen Actors Guild (SAG).
If a Joseph Levitt or Neil Harris got a few parts back in the day and then left acting to sell used cars, SAG won't let another actor use the same name. So they have go bill themselves as Joseph Gordon Levitt or Neil Patrick Harris.

[R33] I’m a SAG member, and entertainment exec, and that’s completely false. May have been true in 1983, but isn’t now.

R33, even in that case they could still use two names with a middle initial. Singer, actress and former Miss America, Vanessa Williams, goes by Vanessa L. Williams at times because there was already another actress named Vanessa Williams.
No reason why some of these pretentious types can't use a middle initial if they need to use the middle name solely to abide by SAG rules. Their equivalents in Britain, especially England, are the pretentious cunts who use double-barrelled surnames because they think it is more posh and aristocratic-sounding.

Three last names is good.
Two first and two last is a good Spanish name.
A first and two last is okay.
Two first and one last is trashy.
Three first names is ridiculous.

Here’s someone with three first names, I wonder what his real name is? Note that he uses the word “haus”, a sign that he’s trying to be a trendy gay.
