* ''Series/OnceUponATime'' remarks on this in-universe; Dr. Frankenstein laments that though he wanted his name to mean life, people think it's the name of a monster. Of course, they're right in this version, as the monster in question was his brother and so had the same name.

** Individual episode titles are prone to such misunderstandings as well. For example, the title of the pilot episode, "Children of the Gods", refers to the Goa'uld (that's what their name literally means in their language).

%%Please source before putting this back in, because I'm pretty sure Goa'uld means "gods". The other meaning doesn't make sense, since they claim to BE gods themselves, not simply the offspring of them.

* In the first season of ''{{Series/Arrow}}'', Oliver Queen's crimefighting persona went by "The Hood" or occasionally "The Vigilante," which didn't stop many viewers from calling him "Arrow." (When they didn't just go ahead and call him GreenArrow). Became a moot point in the second and third season, which saw him change his name to "The Arrow," but this trope has reared its head again in the fourth season now that he's going by Green Arrow officially.

** And god help you if you call ''the Doctor'', ''Music/TheWho'' in front of a rabid ''whovian''. The only thing those two have in common are that they're long-running British icons that began in the 60s. The more easygoing whovians may enjoy both and crack an occasional joke about it tho.
