* Almost everybody refers to [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Dr. Charles Xavier]] as "Dr. Xavier" or "Professor." Notable exceptions are his love interests and Magneto.[[note]][[HoYay But I repeat myself.]][[/note]] Similarly, the Professor is one of the only ones who may refer to Magneto as "Magnus" (or "Erik" in the films).

* The list of people on a first-name basis with Wolverine ("James") starts with SquirrelGirl, and ends ''very'' shortly thereafter. Even his ''wives'' tend to call him "Logan".

* If [[TheFantasticFour Reed Richards]] and DoctorDoom ever call one another by their first names (and they do, very rarely), something is very wrong. Recent years, though, have Reed bucking the trend and tending to call him "Victor" more these days, while Doom only calls him "Reed" when he's truly up the creek [[FauxAffablyEvil and needs an out.]]

** PostCrisis Luthor always insisted his lackeys and conquests and pawns--and Lois--call him Lex, which just made him that much creepier.

* {{Nightwing}}'s most recent civilian girlfriend presented a semi-aversion, which was mildly off-putting for some readers. She insisted on referring to him as "Richard," when he had spent his entire life (that's more or less constant monthly publishing since ''1940'') going by "Dick." To no one's surprise, she didn't last long.

** When Tim Drake, the third Robin, first started dating Stephanie Brown (AKA Spoiler), he wouldn't give her his real name for the same reasons. When she complained about having to use a codename for her boyfriend, Tim noted that at least Robin was an ''actual'' name, instead of something like GreenArrow or Superboy.

* In ''Comicbook/ClanDestine'', almost all of the Destines address and refer to their father by his first name. The exact reasons are never spelled out, but given that he only seems to have raised few of his children, looks ''[[AbsurdlyYouthfulMother younger]]'' than most of them, and that some of them have quarreled with him, it's not that surprising. Not to mention that most of them have established false identities complete with histories that include fictional parents, and might not want to break their cover by calling Adam their dad when someone might hear... The only exceptions are Albert and the twelve-year-old twins.
