* The novella ''Armageddon 2419 A.D.'' by Phillip Francis Nowlan is generally known as the first appearance of BuckRogers. However, he was never called "Buck" in the novella or it's sequel ''Airlords of Han''. He was Anthony Rogers. Reprints in past decades, however, regularly did state on the cover that this was the seminal appearance of Buck. Anthony would not be called Buck until a few years later in his first comic and movie serial appearances.

Anthony would not be called Buck until a few years later in his first comic and movie serial appearances. The reason for the "Buck" was because it sounded more like heroic than Anthony, noting the many cowboy characters named Buck.

** SlumdogMillionaire cleverly exploits this misconception. The climactic question is "The Three Musketeers are Athos, Porthos, and who else?" Since "everyone knows" that D'Artagnan is one of the Three Musketeers, a lot of viewers think that "D'Artagnan" is the right answer and "Aramis" is the wrong answer.

* [[Literature/TheTaleOfPeterRabbit Peter Rabbit]] is commonly referred as "Peter Cottontail" by Americans, which isn't helped by the fact that there is a Rankin-Bass Easter special called WesternAnimation/HereComesPeterCottontail which also stars a male rabbit character. This can cause a lot of people in the US to think that the song "Here Comes Peter Cottontail" is about Peter Rabbit when its actually about the Easter Bunny from that special. This can also be a pretty embarrassing mistake when some Americans would sometimes forget that Peter actually has a sister named Cottontail.
