Added DiffLines:

* Misaki Yata in ''Anime/{{K}}'' - he thinks his GenderBlenderName takes away from his tough-guy image. "Misaki" is written with kanji meaning "beautiful blossom", by the way. It's a BerserkButton that his FoeYay former friend Saruhiko Fushimi ''loves'' to push to goad Misaki into a fight.
--> '''Saruhiko:''' Oh, what a dummy I am, I completely forgot, you ''hate'' being called by that name, don't you... ''Mi... sa...kiii''?

Added DiffLines:

* Yoshiko from ''Anime/LoveLive Sunshine'' insists on being called Yohane. As for why, well, she's the group's {{Chuunibyou}}.


Added DiffLines:

* Raizo Yamada in ''Anime/ValvraveTheLiberator'' insists on being called "''San''da" ("Thunder"). Pretty much no one goes along with it, but he'll still "correct" people on it, at times like... in the middle of a mecha battle in space.

* Thrall/Go'el of ''WorldOfWarcraft'' has a comlicated relationship with this trope. He grew up as a slave under the name Thrall ([[MeaningfulName literally "slave"]]), and even after gaining his freedom decided not to change it, so as to remember where he came from. He later learned his birth name was Go'el, but continued to use the name Thrall while his LoveInterest Aggra calls him by his birth name. Thrall's eventual decision to set aside his office of Warchief, and then his slave name, reflect his CharacterDevelopment in letting go of his bitterness towards the humans' Alliance that enslaved him to embrace his potential as a shaman who protects the entire world, not just the Horde.

* On ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', the only person who calls Crowley by his birth name "Fergus" is his mother Rowena. This is one of the many reasons that Crowley hates Rowena.

to:

* On ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', it's not wise to call the only person who calls extremely powerful demon [[spoiler:and King of Hell]] Crowley by his birth name "Fergus" former human name, [[spoiler:Fergus [=MacLeod=]]]. The only one who can get away with it is his mother, [[spoiler:Rowena]], and mostly because she was such a terrible mother Rowena. This is one of the many reasons that Crowley hates Rowena.he has a lot of worse things to be mad at her for.
