NamingATrope can be difficult. Generally, there is a trade-off between descriptive naming and clever naming, as many clever names only make sense to members of a particular fanbase. This page is here as an archive of names that were just a little bit too obscure to stay, too easy to misinterpret, too similar to an unrelated trope, not sounding neutral enough, or otherwise deemed unworthy.

NamingATrope can be difficult. Generally, there is a trade-off between descriptive naming and clever naming, as many clever names only make sense to members of a particular fanbase. This page is here as an archive of names that were just a little bit too obscure to stay, too easy to misinterpret, too similar to an unrelated trope, not sounding neutral enough, or otherwise deemed unworthy.

Trope names based on a character (or other reference to a specific work) have fallen out of fashion, because [[PopCulturalOsmosisFailure not everyone watches the same shows]]. Some other common themes in renames are:
* Titles based on a character's name, but not making it clear [[OneMarioLimit which character with that name was meant]].
* EverythingsWorseWithSnowclones, so they're used less and less nowadays. Notable example: the [[EverythingsBetterWithIndexes "Everything's better with..."]] titles.
* TropeDecay, where an otherwise appropriate name was being used "wrong", constantly. Eventually it becomes clear that the real demand is for the "wrong" use. Notable example: MomentOfAwesome used to be "''Crowning'' Moment of Awesome", but it wasn't being used for single superlative moments.
* Using "Trope" as a placeholder.
* Tropes that had the same name as a work that later got an article.
* Names that simply don't indicate what the trope is all about. Especially if it suggests something unrelated to most people.
* And then there are titles that [[NeedsABetterTitle nobody ever really liked, even the original author]].
