Possibly because Hannibal isn't just a movie character; it's a name from real history as well.

Hannibal was a Carthaginian general who led an assault against Sparta (in ancient Greece). His force rode armoured elephants and were defeated just miles from the city gates (if I remember correctly; my last history class was years ago).

In vengeance, Sparta wreaked one of the greatest atrocities in human history.

The entire city-state of Carthage (in north Africa) was razed to the ground. All the "fighting-age" men were slaughtered (even the non combattants), as were all the elders. The women and children were sold into slavery.

The city and outlying farms were burned and the earth salted so that nothing would ever grow there again.

Burn it down. . . Burn it down, and salt the earth.--Government agent, ordering the destruction of the Initiative bunker (BtVS; "Primeval")

Umm, My real name is Hannibal. :D So instead of me leaving out the last name of a movie serial killer, I'm just really, really unimaginative. ;)
