Then there is the curious case of Pvt. R B Smith. The Army, of course insisted that the initials could not really be his name and wanted to know what it was. Pvt. Smith finally convinced the payroll folks that his name was only the letters R and B. The army administration in its inimitable way to insure accuracy put on his official records R (only) B (only) Smith. Ever after he was known as Ronly Bonly Smith.

I think that you have incorrectly displayed Harry S Truman's name with a period after the "S".
Of course that would have given the answer away.

And my personal favorite Wile E Coyote although the E is self explanatory.

There was a George Burns movie "18 Again" where he asserted that the "S" stood for Sergei, and that Truman shorten it to simply "S" because of McCarthyism.
