* ComicBook/{{Deadshot}}'s first name is Floyd. Even ComicBook/HarleyQuinn thinks its weird how the most dangerous marksman in the world is named that.

* Umibozu from ''Manga/CityHunter'' prefers to go by that nickname (meaning ''sea monster'') or his old codename Falcon (mostly used by people connected to his time in the US, including ''his wife'') rather than his real name Hayato Ijuin. That's not because Hayato is a strange name, but because it's utterly normal-and so completely embarrassing for a ''gigantic'' ProfessionalKiller whose strong points are demolitions and enough strength to do GunAkimbo with a machine gun and a bazooka.

* Ty in the ''Cut & Run'' series goes by his middle name for the most part, his legal first name being "Beaumont." According to his mother, he developed a fondness for [[TheNicknamer nicknames]] when he was four because he disliked his own first name so much, even flat out refusing to tell his partner what it was.

* We don't know what Angela's real name was on ''Series/{{Bones}}'', but she renamed herself as an adult. Judging by her dad's attempt to name her son Staccato Mamba, it had to be rather odd.
