* ''Anime/{{K}}'' has [[GenderBlenderName Misaki]] Yata and Saruhiko Fushimi (Saru means "monkey"), who allow each other to use those names, and very few others... of course, once they [[LoveInterestTraitor become enemies]], they use the names to taunt each other, though it maintains an air of intimacy and a [[EveryoneCanSeeIt suggestion]] that they will someday get back together.

* Comedian Stephen K. Amos was born in St. Stephen's Hospital, "[[LineOfSightName so you can imagine how hard my parents worked to come up with my name]]". He's not the one with the embarrassing name. That would be his twin sister, Hospital.

* Lupe dy Cazaril, the protagonist of ''The Curse of Literature/{{Chalion}}''. The book has a fantasy setting where [[AerithAndBob naming conventions aren't quite as we know them]], but it's clear that "Lupe" is considered embarrassing InUniverse both because the protagonist doesn't use it unless he has to and because of the other characters' reactions when it does come out.
** It means "wolf" and people used to make fun of him by howling like wolves.
