* Lampshaded in ''Film/TheAvengers2012'' when [[PhilCoulson Coulson]] shows up at Stark Tower.
-->'''Pepper Potts''': Phil!\\
'''Tony Stark''': Phil? Uh, his first name is "Agent".
** Note that it is completely in character for Pepper to learn his name, and for Tony to not. [[spoiler: This gets a CallBack after Coulson is killed by Loki.]]
-->'''Tony''': [[spoiler: And there's one other person you pissed off. His name was Phil.]]
* It is a point brought up by Pep Strebeck to Joe Friday in ''{{Franchise/Dragnet}}'' that friends call each other by first names.

* In ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPeal'', Elizabeth is furious that Jack refers to her by her first name during their first encounter - "It's ''Miss Swann!''". Will refuses to call Elizabeth by her first name, despite their knowing each other as children, because of their difference in social status; when Elizabeth accepts it and calls him "Mr. Turner", he is deeply grieved. Later, Jack calls Elizabeth "Captain Swann" to acknowledge (with some difficulty) that she has one of the pieces of eight; Bootstrap Bill calls his own son "Captain" and Will calls his own father "Mr. Turner" to acknowledge their roles on the ship; and Barbossa calls Elizabeth "Mrs. Turner" to acknowledge her marriage (though this one is a callback to the first movie, where Elizabeth passed herself off as Elizabeth Turner). Such careful usage was not common in the movies.

* ''Film/XMen'': Charles Xavier (Professor X) and Erik Lehnsherr ({{Magneto}}) always use their first names when speaking to or about each other. Only a handful of others are on a first-name basis with them.
** ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'':
*** While the public and most other characters refer to Erik (Magneto) and Raven (Mystique) by their mutant code names, Charles and Hank still remain on a first name basis with both of them, and vice versa. This is also presumably true for Alex, who still addresses his former allies as Raven and Erik.

to:

* ''Film/XMen'': ''Film/XMen'':
** Notably, the film series is when we first hear Erik called "Erik" with any regularity, and it crosses back to the comics and all other versions. Before the movies, those who knew Magneto well called him Magnus, as his "real" name (as in, what his birth name is gets retconned back and forth, but this is the name he has used most consistently for the longest in-and-out-of-universe time) is Erik Magnus Lehnsherr, with "Magnus" being the only thing we knew (as things stood then) to be part of his "real" name. Of course, "Magnus" just sounds like something else you might call a master of magnetism, so in the films,
Charles Xavier (Professor X) and Erik Lehnsherr ({{Magneto}}) always Raven call him Erik, and everything else follows suit.
** ''Film/X2XMenUnited'':
*** Professor X and William Stryker
use each other's given names because Jason Stryker was once Xavier's student.
*** The following dialogue foreshadows an off-stage FaceHeelTurn:
---->'''Magneto:''' What is your name?\\
'''Pyro:''' John.\\
'''Magneto:''' No, what is your ''real'' name?
** ''Film/XMenFirstClass'': On a meta level; before this movie was released, fans frequently referred to Professor X, Magneto, Mystique and Beast by their codenames, but afterwards, it became commonplace for audience members to call them by
their first names names, especially when speaking to or about each other. Only a handful of others are on a first-name basis with them.
differentiating between their "regular" selves and their superhero/supervillain persona.

**** Or rather an off-stage HeelFaceTurn, given this dialoge from XMenUnited:
-->'''Magneto:''' What is your name? \\
'''Pyro:''' John? \\
'''Magneto:''' No, what is your ''real'' name?

* In ''Film/BigGame'', Moore suggests from the very beginning that Oskari call him Bill, but the boy keeps on calling him "president" until it's time to introduce him to his [[WellDoneSonGuy father]].

Added DiffLines:

* Harry Potter calls Voldemort "Tom" during their final battle. Unlike most other cases this is meant as an insult. Voldemort wants to be feared and being called by such a normal name reminds him of when he was nothing.
