Only Gatsby, the man who gives his name to this book,

from F. Scott Fitzgerald – The Great Gatsby (Chapter I) on Rap Genius

Meaning

Fitzgerald panicked at the last minute and cabled his editor to change the title to Under the Red, White and Blue, which he thought far superior (and which also suggests that he really was trying to write the Great American Novel). Fortunately, he was too late, and The Great Gatsby stuck.
