* In ''Webcomic/DMOfTheRings'', nobody could keep any of the names straight. Notable ones include Aragorn referring to Théoden as "King Crazypants", mixing up Sauron and Saruman, and forgetting the names of their own party members. Rivendell is Rivertown or [[ArchieComics Riverdale]], Théoden is Theogan, and the Nazgûl are [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Nargazoids]].

** Bowser does this in all three ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigi'' games. Bowser has fixated on Mario as his greatest enemy, and always forgets Luigi's name. So Bowser uses names like "Green 'Stache" to refer to Luigi.

* ''Series/{{Leverage}}'': TheMark in "The Bank Shot Job" is an arrogant corrupt judge who [[IOwnThisTown rules the town]]. He keeps calling the bank manager 'Fred' when his name is actually Frank, and has seemingly been doing so for years. This comes back to bite him at the end of the episode.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/KillSixBillionDemons'': [[spoiler:The Conquering King]] calls Allison "Alice", which, as she says, is not ''quite'' her name. His confusion may be because UN is one of the names of the first-divided god and therefore a common prefix and suffix in the setting, leading him to believe she is Alice-Un.

Added DiffLines:

* In "Wayne Manor", part of the ''Fanfic/SorrowfulAndImmaculateHearts'' series, Martha Wayne initially appears to be a bubble-headed socialite who calls Alfred Pennyworth "Shillingsweight" and "Pennywork". An invoked instance, because she's a lot smarter than she chooses to appear, and once she decides to let him know it, she never gets his name wrong again.

* ''{{Drowtales}}'' has Zith, a cameo character who [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?sid=9470 chronically mispronounces everyone's names]], to the point that the page has an author's note on the bottom explaining all the misspellings were intentional. Her concept art features her calling Quain'tana "Quainana" much to the Ill'haress' disdain, but seems to be [[BunnyEarsLawyer good enough at her job otherwise]] given Quain's intolerance for incompetence. Also something of a FandomNod since many members of the comic's forum have trouble spelling character's names.

* ''Webcomic/TheBedfellows'': Considering Sheen's HairTriggerTemper, this is a very bad idea; the conversation below only proves it.
-->'''Bauhaus''': Now, Sheenie Beenie, tell me a little about how you have been feeling lately.\\
'''Sheen''': Wonderful, fabulous... I'm a ship sailing on calm seas... '''''[[SuddenlyShouting AND DON'T CALL ME THAT!!]]'''''

** In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince'' Horace Slughorn considered Ron Weasley unimportant and therefore accidentally called him Rupert, Weatherby, Wallenby, or Wenby on various occasions. In a pensieve scene in the same novel, the director at the orphanage where Tom Riddle grew up calls Dumbledore "Dumberton" and then "Dunderbore."
