** In the Dollanganger series, Cathy's eldest son is named Julian after his father, but is known in the family as Jory, which is a combination of his real name and that of his late uncle Cory.



* ''Literature/WivesAndDaughters'': Mr Gibson calls his daughter Molly "Goosey". She's the apple of his eye, and she loves nobody more than him.

** Prince Lucian doesn’t like to be called such outside of formal circumstances, and instead prefers his shortened surname, Kiggs. [[spoiler:Which makes it more heartbreaking when he tells Seraphina to call him Prince Lucian after the first encounter with Imlann.]]

** In the sequel ''Little Men,'' Meg's twins are named Margaret and John, after their parents. Everyone calls them Daisy and Demi - Demi being short for "Demijohn." Amy's daughter is named Elizabeth, after Beth, but everyone calls her Bess.



* In the ''Literature/CircleOfMagic'' series, Briar often calls Tris (the foster sister he is closest to due to their shared love of books) Coppercurls, because of her curly red hair.

* ''Literature/TheRailwaySeries'' has Falcon and Stuart (later Sir Handel and Peter Sam respectively), nickname Duke 'Granpuff' "because he's so wise and kind". Though never stated, the aforementioned nickname sounds a lot like 'Grandpa', so it's very possible that the 2 younger engines look up to Duke as not only a mentor, but a grandfather as well. Fanwork also takes this a step further, with Duke calling Sir Handel and Peter Sam by their Mid Sodor names as nicknames. Aww. Now, isn't that sweet?

* ''Literature/TanteiTeamKZJikenNote'': At the end of ''The Disapeared Bicycle Knows'', [[TheSocialExpert Kuroki]] starts calling Aya "Aaya." Aya complained that only her mother calls her that way, but Kuroki justified his action by saying this is the Affectionate Nickname for most Aya's and Ayako's of this world. Eventually, everybody in the cast calls Aya "Aaya."

** "The Duchess and the Devil": Horatio, at this point an Acting Lieutenant, befriends a cheeky British Duchess who affectionately calls him "Mr Aitch", sometimes pronounced "Mr Haitch". He's a bit embarrassed at first with her likeable mocking and attentions, but ultimately, he quite likes it.

* the 2nd Edition ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' ''The Complete Book of Elves'' had a version of this. It stated that an elf doesn't keep the name his or her parents give him when born; he or she chooses another upon becoming legal age. The book also says, however, that even after that, an elf's parents and other elders he or she knew as a child might still call him or her by the "child name" on occasion, in which case it becomes a sort of Affectionate Nickname.

* [[TheNicknamer Varric]] from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' has nicknames for everyone (except [[SergeantRock Aveline]], whom he apparently fears too much for this), but the closest example to this trope is probably "Daisy", for [[MoralityPet Merrill]]. Isabela joins in by calling Merrill "Kitten."
** He does it again in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', having nicknames for everyone except the Inquisitor (though sometimes he calls him/her "Your Inquisitorialness"). Sera will give a nickname to a female Inquisitor who romances her, and in her diary she also dubs GadgeteerGenius Dagna "Widdle." Leliana sometimes calls Josephine "Josie," an indication of their sister-like relationship. Solas calls an Inquisitor who romances him "vhenan," while Dorian uses "amatus" and Iron Bull uses "kadan." All three words mean roughly the same thing ("heart" or "close to the heart") in Elvhen, Tevinter, and Qunlat, respectively.

* Averted and played straight in ''Webcomic/CobwebAndStripes''. Lydia calls Betelgeuse "BJ" not so much because of this trope, but more because using his actual name is how he's summoned and he'd rather she only use it for that purpose. He, on the other hand, dubs her "Lyds" and "Babe," almost never calling her by her name. He also calls Jacques the skeleton "Bones."



* The founder of the Blog/KnightsOfFandom is known as "the Adoptive Mother of the Internet," or just "Mom" for short.



* WesternAnimation/{{Beetlejuice}} is more likely to address [[MoralityChain Lydia]] as "Lyds" or "Babes" than her real name. On a very few occasions, he calls her "my dear," although this usually for playful drama. She returns it by sometimes calling him "BJ" or "Beej."

"Beej," and the instances of her doing so become more frequent as the series goes on. Their car, the Dragster of Doom, is affectionately dubbed "Doomie" by both.



* [[UsefulNotes/TheBritishRoyalFamily Prince Philip]], husband of UsefulNotes/HMTheQueen, calls his wife "Cabbage", probably derived from the French endearment ''ma petite chou'', which literally translates to "my little cabbage".

* When Lindsay Monroe arrived on ''{{CSI NY}}'', Danny quickly dubbed her 'Montana' after her home state. It started out as a teasing sort of thing, but evolved into a sign of affection. It's not popping up as much now that they're married, though. He's more often hear to just call her 'Linds' or 'Babe' these days. (He did use the nickname in the hospital in 'Unspoken', and she said he hadn't used it in a while.)

* On ''AaahhRealMonsters,'' Oblina will call her best friends, Ickis and Krumm, "Icky" and "Krummy" respectively with "Icky" coming up a lot more in conversation. She also calls Ickis a "lazy bunny" both playfully and out of annoyance. His retort is usually "Stick-Lips" although he has admitted that he likes that feature in her.
