** Meanwhile, in ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', Jean-Luc Picard's more aristocratic style of command meant that only longtime friend Beverly Crusher ever referred to him by his first name (aside from recurring antagonist Q, but there were... [[HoYay other]] [[AGodAmI reasons]] for that one. And Riker, in the episode where he was briefly turned into a Q; Picard promptly called him on it.) Data, Worf, and Geordi, however, were referred to by first name even while on duty (albeit in part because Data only ''has'' one name and Worf, though HappilyAdopted, uses the Klingon {{Patronymic}} "Son of Mogh" rather than his parents' surname of Rozhenko). Picard will also switch off how he refers to the crew depending on whether it is a formal or informal situation. When acting as Captain Picard, he says Mr. Data, Mr. Worf, Dr. Crusher. When informal or more personal, he used first names, particularly with, as above, Beverly, who he's known for like two decades. Riker gets the nickname of "Number One" on duty unless it's a full-formal situation, but Picard sometimes addresses him as "Will".

* Creator/MontyPython has an entire [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PcEWtF2KzEw sketch]] based around an interviewer calling his subject by his first name, and then takes it UpToEleven as he begins to use names such as "sweetie pie" and "pussycat".

** According to them, everyone in Australia is on a first-name basis... and that name is Bruce.
--> Is your name not Bruce then?\\
No, it's Michael.\\
That's going to cause confusion.\\
Mind if we call you Bruce, just to keep it clear?

Added DiffLines:

** Colonel Potter probably most often addressed Hawkeye, BJ, and Margaret as "Pierce," "Hunnicutt," and "Major," respectively, but sometimes he would call them by their first names. He also rarely called Max Klinger by his first name.

** 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" by just about everybody.

** Jethro is actually Gibbs' middle name. His first name is Leroy. Nobody ''ever'' calls him "Leroy" unless they've slept with him, and even then it's rare.


Added DiffLines:

** Notably, in the books Moriarty addressed Holmes as "Mr Holmes". In the show, ''Mycroft'' is "Mr Holmes", and Sherlock is just "Sherlock".
** A RunningGag is made out of the fact that John is on first name terms with Inspector Greg Lestrade but Sherlock isn't, and can't even remember his first name no matter how many times he's told.

* The characters on ''AreYouBeingServed'' nearly always refer to each other as "Mr." or "Mrs./Miss"; to the point that the rest of the staff has to do some detective work to figure out what Mrs. Slocombe's first initial stands for, and you have to watch several episodes to find out everyone's first name.
