Which eminent Irish playwright has the middle name "Fingal O'Flahertie Wills" ?!

His zodiac sign is Libra as he was born on 16th October.
He had his education in Trinity College, Dublin and Magdalen College, Oxford.
In his short life of just 46 years, he was well-acclaimed for his poems, essays, plays, dialogues, novels and stories.
He's the one and only - Oscar Wilde - who makes you go wild with his zany witticisms ;-)
So now you know his full name: Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde
Now let me mention another name: Samuel Langhorne Clemens
Does it ring any bells ???
Do you know this person ?!
He came to this world during a visit by Halley's comet and he very truly predicted his death that he would die when Halley visits again.
He was born in November 1835 and died in April 1910, one day after the comet's closest approach to earth.
He also used 2 other pen names - "Josh" and "Thomas Jefferson Snodgrass" before finalising and sticking to this pen name for life by which we know him so well: 
Mark Twain, the great American author, writer, lecturer and humorist who's famous for his works of fiction, non-fiction, children's literature, satires, essays, social commentaries, philosophical quotations, stories, novels, speeches, travelogues and literary criticisms.
I particularly like his amazing witticisms :-)
So now you know the birth name of Mark Twain: Samuel Langhorne Clemens 
That's a lot of learning and sharing for now....
Or is it?!
No, how can it be?!
There are so many aphorisms of these 2 stalwarts here, for you to see :-)
