Tertullian

Tertullian is third in my list.Tertullian (ca. 160 – ca. 220 A.D.) was a North African writer and defender of the Christian faith. Tertullian may have coined the term Trinity, first extant writing we have of the term, and had the generally accepted formula of three persons, one substance. Tertullian has been accused of becoming a Montanist later in his life, however, recent scholarship has been calling this fact into question, many no longer making this claim. Despite these claims, Tertullian is also noted as being the Father of Latin Christianity, though it is thought he wrote all of his works in both Greek and Latin.

Just a note, Wikipedia still has the conversion to Montanism as an assumed fact.
