* In ''VideoGame/StarControlII'', there's a part where you can pick the name of your new coalition. Options include "The New Alliance of Free Stars", "The Concordance of Alien Nations", "The United Federation of Worlds" and "The Empire of (Insert your name here)". Hayes is a bit put off if you choose the Empire of Me option, but goes along with it.

** If you befriend the Thraddash, they ask you for help naming their new culture. As above, one of the options is "The Glorious Slave Empire of [[HelloInsertNameHere (Your name)]]", which the Thraddash begrudgingly accept because "you're the one with the big starship".

** The Super Mario Bros ,unless you go with the "Mario Mario and Luigi Mario" explanation (which [[FlipFlopOfGod is sometimes canon]]). Lampshaded in ''[[VideoGame/SuperMario64 Super Mario 64 DS]]'' in that if you were to talk to one of the Toads as Luigi, said Toad praises him and wonders if he should call him and Mario "Luigi Brothers" from now onwards.

* DaveMatthewsBandThe Music/DaveMatthewsBand has had that name ever since they started. Originally, it was just a placeholder name while frontman Dave Matthews and his bandmates came up with something better. But after they started getting a lot more recognition, they just decided to [[PermanentPlaceholder keep the name forever]].

** ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'' gives us Team Sonic and Team Rose. Averted by Team Dark and Team Chaotix. At the end of the game, for the sake of a TitleDrop Sonic refers to them collectively as "Sonic Heroes!" You'd think he might've asked first if the others were okay with that...
** It should be noted that ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'' called Team Sonic "Team Hero" instead. It's likely that the change was due to the ''game'' being called Sonic ''Heroes'', so calling one team "Team Hero" would leave people wondering. Later, [[VideoGame/SonicRiders Free Riders]] [[FlipFlopOfGod would change the name back to Team Hero.]]

Added DiffLines:

* The Linux kernel, named after its creator Linus Torvalds (combined with the obligatory XMakesAnythingCool for anything Unix-related). Torvalds claims this wasn't deliberate, but he struggled to think of a good name at first and there was nothing he could do after Linux simply caught on.

* This is the basic premise of ''VideoGame/MarioParty 2''. The Mario characters create a new world that is initially named Mario Land, but each one wants to name the world after himself or herself, so they have a contest to determine who gets to name it.
