    Finch generally uses fairly identifiable bird-based or bird related aliases with the first name Harold (Harold Wren, Crane, Crow, Quail, Gull, Swift and Mr. Partridge) but has used non-bird names including Arthur Bellenger, Thomas Paine, Dr. Tillman, Lucas Bennett, and Walt Trowbridge. The alias Norman Burdett could be considered bird-based (bird-ett). In Season 2, during John's interrogation, Finch's alias is "Howard French", which is not a bird name, although based on Reese's former profession and the likelihood of capture and torture, choosing phonetically similar aliases can be very helpful should the need to use them arise. In season 3, episode 21, "Beta," the grave site his fiancé visits has a name plate with the name Harold Martin. At first glance, this would not seem to be a bird related name, but it actually is. There are many species of Martin around the world, including a very common bird in North America, the Purple Martin, and another from South and Central America, the Gray-breasted Martin, and many others.

    All of Reese's aliases have the first name John (John Reese, John Rooney, John Warren, John Anderson, John Wiley, John Campbell, John Randall, and John Hayes) except for his first alias in the pilot (James J. Manzione) and Mission Creep (Tony Miller). He also goes by "Detective Stills" and "Marshall Jennings", having "borrowed" their shield/star somewhat permanently. However, these aliases are usually only used when necessary to gain access to an area or information that would otherwise be much more difficult if not impossible.
