** President Barack Obama's secret service codename is "Renegade". A few nut-jobs claim that the word is from the Spanish ''renegado'': one who has renounced Christianity! At least with the Obama family, all the members of the First Family have codenames that start with the same letter (Michelle's is "Renaissance"). The same held true for the Clintons - some of whom are still under Secret Service protection - [[UsefulNotes/BillClinton Bill]] was "Eagle", [[UsefulNotes/HillaryRodhamClinton Hillary]] was "Evergreen" and Chelsea was "Energy". George W. Bush's is "Trailblazer". Eleanor Roosevelt's codename was "Rover", while Cheney was "Angler".

Military ranks, noble titles and other honorifics are occasionally incorporated into a [=Codename=], as is the case in CaptainAmerica and ComicBook/DoctorFate. Closely related to NomDeGuerre, which would be when they use the name all the time, and not just "out in public". ReportingNames are essentially Code Names for enemy equipment, especially when the real name is unknown or impossible to pronounce in your own language.

* When he wasn't Rogue Leader, Luke Skywalker sometimes used the rather natural call name "Farmboy" in some of the other ''Literature/StarWarsLegends'' novels.

* ''Webcomic/CodeNameHunter'': it's right there in the title! All of the field agents have a codename. If a field agent dies in the line of duty or goes missing, their codename is retired.

* In ''Series/{{Smallville}}'', Green Arrow assigns code names to the other heroes when he teams up with them. While the others are their eventual superhero names like "Impulse", "Cyborg", and "Aquaman", he calls Clark Kent "Boyscout". Similar to Wolverine above, Clark thinks this practice is bizarre. Clark eventually starts calling himself "The Blur" because he protects his secret identity by staying in the shadows and moving at super speed so he cannot only be seen by the public as a blur. He only starts calling himself "Superman" in the final episodes.

* In the French and certain European ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' dubs, the members of the Ginyu Force announce what kind of "forces" they each represent instead of their names. Only Ginyu and Jeice get to be called by their actual names (although Ginyu is consistently pronounced as the French "Jineu") near the end of their saga, [[DubInducedPlotHole when suddenly everyone stars knowing what they're called]]. These supposed code names are:

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/TokyoXtremeRacer'' has very big conventions of this for every rival you face in every installment in the series. These code names, Battle Decision Names, are based on ''every different factor'' and it varies on situation. A few rivals have parts of their real names attached to BAD names, but their full real names are never revealed until you check their profiles.

* The [[FourIsDeath four Warlords]] from ''RoninWarriors'' were given code names by [[BigBad Talpa]] that correspond with their armors. This is subverted in the [[DubNameChange dub]].
