Despite that many fans are only now becoming aware of his full name – Asa Bopp Farr Butterfield.
“I thought the name Asa Butterfield couldn’t be more twee but I just found out his full name is Asa Bopp Farr Butterfield so count me wrong,” wrote one user on X/Twitter.

The actor previously confirmed his full name to the Gentleman’s Journal ahead of the release of the third season.
When asked whether his Wiki entry was correct at the time when it claimed his middle names were “Maxwell” and “Thornton”, he said: “No! My Wikipedia page is wrong! This is a whole thing; a whole thing around my middle names. When I was born – and I’m going to go on a bit of a tangent here – I had all these other names.
“But, after about a week, my parents thought it was ridiculous to have six names. So, on my actual birth certificate, there’s a different middle name. My actual middle name is ‘Bopp’. It’s inspired by the day I was born, when there was a comet in the sky called Hale-Bopp.”
He also confirmed at the time that his other middle name Farr, was taken from his mother’s surname.
Reviewing season four, NME awarded the show four stars and said the “horny high schoolers go out with a bang.”
