** Magrat Garlick also hates her first name (which was supposed to be Margaret, but her mother couldn't spell it properly) thinking that it sounds like "something that lived in a hole in a river bank and was always getting flooded out".

* ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam'' has a male lead named Kamille, who naturally hates his feminine-sounding name. He eventually falls in love with a girl named Four, who has similar issues with her name (in her case, because it signifies that [[YouAreNumberSix she is a number rather than an individual]]). It becomes hilarious when you realize there never would have been a Zeta Gundam if he hadn't been named Kamille, and the AEUG probably would have lost or at the very least have a longer and bloodier war.

* In ''LightNovel/KonoSuba'', Darkness absolutely hates her real first name [[spoiler:Lalatina]]. When Kazuma revealed her real name to the members of the Adventurers' Guild, them praising her unironically ("Three cheers for [[spoiler:Lalatina]]!") was so embarrassing that she looked like she wanted to shrivel up and die, even though normally she's a masochist who literally gets off on being humiliated.

When At one point Kazuma revealed threatens to do something so horrible and embarrassing to her that it'll make her want to die of shame -- a real feat considering she's a hardcore masochist who literally gets off on being insulted and humiliated.

* ''Series/MacGyver'' always seemed embarrassed by his first name. Even former lovers only ever called him "[=MacGyver=]" (his grandfather called him "bud"). In one of the show's final episodes, his first name was revealed to be [[spoiler:"Angus"]], which isn't really all that embarrassing. His embarrassment was probably based on the name originally scripted for him, which was "Stacey".
