* Doctor [=McKay=] of ''Series/StargateAtlantis'' prefers to be addressed by his middle name, Rodney, because his first name is Meredith. Strangely his teammates don't know it; you'd expect that it would've been in his file, unless he had it legally changed. Good luck getting his sister to stop calling him that, though. An AlternateReality [=McKay=] goes a step further and prefers to be called Rod. Then again alternate-[=McKay=] is so damn awesome that maybe he goes by Meredith but his reputation precedes him enough for everyone to call him Rod, if you know what I mean. The [=McKay=] from the main timeline laments that he could never get anyone to call him "Rod."

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TerraIgnota'',Mycroft comments early on that while his own first name used to be one of the most common (presumably due to Sherlock Holmes fans), his past conduct made it so that it lost popularity and people named Mycroft are inclined to go by other names in public, like Mycroft Guildbreaker going by Martin Guildbreaker instead. Once the reader learns that Mycroft's [[spoiler:a serial killer]], this makes a lot of sense.

* Run-Run/La-La in ''Anime/MahoujinGuruGuru'' is utterly embarrassed by her name, and can get violently angry if people constantly repeat it or, worse, ''sing'' it. She will also go do all in her power to prevent people who don't know her name from ever learning it and is annoyed by Nike's persistence in the matter.

** His spouse's name is "Spoiled Rich" but apparently before she was married her name was "Spoiled ''Milk''". That doesn't seem like a good combination.
