* ''Series/{{JAG}}'' had an interesting variant with Major (from season 5: Lieutenant Colonel) Sarah Mackenzie. Everyone of equal or higher rank in the office called her "Mac", and very rarely did anyone use her first name. Everyone below her in rank called her rank & last name, only rank or "Ma'am", even when they were off-duty. This is standard military protocol and courtesy.
