100 Three-Name ‘80s Stars
Three is a magic number — if Schoolhouse Rock! or De La Soul are to be believed. It certainly worked its magic for a number of stars in the 1980s who were known by their three-part names.
The criteria for this compilation was simply: people of note during the decade who had three parts to their name. Those who may not technically tally three separate names — whether by hyphenation, unique capitalization, inclusion of ‘nicknames’ or the use of particles (like de, la, van, von and the) — were included in *honorary mention below.
They must also have used their triple moniker during the 80s. (For example: 21 Jump Street star Holly Robinson Peete was known simply as Holly Robinson then.)
