* In the first episode of ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', the NewTransferStudent Homura Akemi calls Madoka by her first name and asks Madoka to do the same. [[spoiler:This is because in the third timeline, the [[FamousLastWords last thing Madoka said]] before Homura [[MercyKill Mercy Killed]] her was how happy she was that Homura had called her by her first name.]]

** Strictly speaking, not all of the Straw Hats even ''have'' family names, or at least ones we've been made privy to. Nami, Usopp, and Brook don't have the chance to go by surnames, even to strangers. Franky and Sanji's legal names both have surnames, but neither of them use them, since Franky faked his death and [[spoiler: Sanji hates his family too much to want to keep his surname]]. Of the Straw Hats that do have family names, only Chopper uses his regularly, and that's probably just because "Tony-Tony" is kind of awkward to say.

** As a member of the Saint Church, Chantez called [[CloneJesus Vivio]] "Your Majesty" in ''[[Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid ViVid]]''. By the time of ''Anime/VividStrike'' she's switched to calling her by name, but she still occasionally calls her by her title on accident.

** Sousuke is a borderline aversion. He rarely calls anyone other than Kurz by their first name. In the first season, it took him quite a while until he got used to saying "Kaname" instead of "Miss Chidori". As for Tessa... despite her repeated requests, he only stopped using her rank in ''The Second Raid'' finale. It doesn't help she has a crush on him. As for the reverse, Kaname always called him by his first name but Tessa never stopped the FullNameBasis.Which makes sense because Sousuke only knows the world of the miltary. Hence Kurz he can call by first name because they have known each other for a while and are roughly equal in rank.

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', Robin initially called her crewmates by their titles on the ship to keep her distance, out of the fear that [[spoiler:when the Marines pursuing her start closing in, they would betray her to save themselves]]. She sometimes made an exception for Luffy, who had agreed to take her in, although this is presumably on a professional basis, in the same way she would call Crocodile by his real name. After the Enies Lobby Arc, she begins calling them by name. Some of Luffy's crew members (Sanji, Chopper, Robin and Franky) typically start out calling him "Straw Hat", the nickname his enemies commonly use, but except for Franky, refer to him by name after joining.
** At least in the anime, Franky has started calling Luffy by his name as of Episode 405. He also typically refers to Robin by her full name of "Nico Robin."
** She still calls Zoro 'Mr. Swordsman/Mr. Bushido' as a nickname. His position in the crew is actually the swordsman. She does refer to him by his name at one point after the timeskip.
** Strictly speaking, not all of the Straw Hats even ''have'' family names, or at least ones we've been made privy to. Nami, Usopp, and Brook don't have the chance to go by surnames, even to strangers. Franky and Sanji's legal names both have surnames, but neither of them use them, since Franky faked his death and [[spoiler: Sanji's legal name--Sanji Vinsmoke-- is literally just a label that means "the third Vinsmoke", not an actual name]]. Of the Straw Hats that do have family names, only Chopper uses his regularly, and that's probably just because "Tony-Tony" is kind of awkward to say.

* In ''LightNovel/AccelWorld'', Haruyuki, Chiyuri and Takumu, who have been friends since they were young, refer to one another by their abbreviated names, "Haru," "Chiyu/Chii-chan," "Taku/Takkun". At the end of the Dusk Taker arc, one sign of how [[FireForgedFriends the initially frosty relations between Chiyu and Kuroyukihime have improved]] is that Kuroyukihime starts calling Chiyu by her first name.

* Momoka in ''Manga/KeroroGunsou'' is unable to call Fuyuki by his first name until she blurts it out while saving him from some alien cuisine that wasn't quite dead yet. Fuyuki, meanwhile, is oblivious to all of this.
