** Strangely, unlike most other lords in the series Tywin Lannister is usually referred to as "Lord Tywin" rather than "Lord Lannister".

* Despite the professional setting, every single character on ''TheWestWing'' is called by their first name, with the exception of President Bartlet (who is called "Mr. President" or "the President", referring to him as "Bartlet" is usually a sign of contempt) and Mrs. Landingham, who is called thusly only because she used to be a secretary at the President's school when he was a kid. CJ is usually always called by everyone by her nickname, instead of her rarely-heard first name "Claudia Jean", though the President is, as usual, the exception.

Added DiffLines:

** When called by first name, Riker is always called Will, never William. Even the stiffly formal Captain Jellico (when temporarily filling in for a missing Picard) upon introduction asks Riker whether his preference was Will or William.

* [=McGee=] and Gibbs on ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' go by their last name (or by the nicknames "Probie" and "Boss," respectively). Abby is about the only person to call [=McGee=] by his first name with any regularity, and Ducky is one of the few who can get away with calling Gibbs by his.

* Western [[InvertedTrope Inversion]]: On ''NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'', most of the kids go by nicknames, and the kids who call them by their real name usually really like them. Lisa calls Cookie "Simon," Evelyn calls him by his last name "Cook," and Moze's boyfriend and fanboys call her "Jennifer." Once when she tried to get Ned to call her "Jennifer," he was physically unable to say it.

** Detective Olivia Benson is called "Olivia" by most of her co-workers, but always "Liv" by her partner, and, in the later episodes, [[LesYay Alex Cabot]]. If anyone else calls her "Liv", [[YouCalledMeXItMustBeSerious the shit is about to hit the fan]].

** The [-ADA-] is always her first name, apart from the [[ReplacementScrappy despised ones]], who are "Greylek" and "Paxton". Alex Cabot, in particular, would refer to ''everyone'' by their first name, even when they weren't around. However, Rafael Barba is well-liked but still called "Barba" or "Counselor" instead of Rafael.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** After insistently calling Jaime "Kingslayer" ever since they met, Brienne displays her new-found regard for Jaime Lannister by calling him "Ser Jaime."
** Littlefinger frequently reminds Sansa to call him "Petyr" to encourage some intimacy between them. She prefers to call him "Lord Baelish," which is still more polite than "Littlefinger."

* In an early episode of ''Series/XCompany'' Aurora asks Alfred why he never calls her by her name, and he responds that he's afraid of how it would taste (Alfred has Synthesia which causes his senses to be fused). In the second last episode of season two, he calls her Aurora. [[spoiler:They kiss soon after.]]
