** The main reason why Nagisa insists of being called by his first name is [[spoiler:he doesn't want to get used to his mother's family name, in hope that he would get his father's name back if his parents reconcile with each other. Years later, Nagisa's own students call him by his first name as well]].

* The scene in ''TokyoMewMew'' where Aoyama Masaya first calls Momomiya Ichigo by her name instead of "Momomiya-san" is one of the unlucky ones to be [[DubInducedPlotHole passed over]] by [[FourKidsEntertainment the English]] [[TokyoPop translators]], since the latter naturally always has characters use their first names.

* Rather significant relationship point between Jinto and Lafiel in ''LightNovel/CrestOfTheStars''. Lafiel is the granddaughter of the Empress and Jinto is the only person other than her immediate family who uses her given name. This is because he didn't realise exactly who she was when they first met but when he does and starts using her various titles she refuses to speak to him until he starts using her name again. When they start serving together, he calls her Captain when on duty but still stays on a {{First Name Basis}} off duty which raises a lot of eyebrows.

This is because he didn't realise exactly who she was when they first met met, and Lafiel was delighted to have someone around who treated her like a normal person. When he later learns the class differences between them, he tries to be formal, but when he does and starts using her various titles she refuses to speak to him until it quickly becomes clear that she's hurt by this, so he starts using her name again.
