* Captain Cold, reoccurring nemesis of ''ComicBook/TheFlash'', was born Leonard Snart.



* Trixie Lulamoon of FanFic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse absolutely hates her last name. She claims it's due to being teased by foals singing "Skip To My Lou" when she was younger, but it might also be due to being emberassed by what her drunk AlternateSelf (who does go by "Lulamoon"), gets up to when she comes out to play.

* In ''Series/AgentsOfShield'', Skye was raised under the name of Mary Sue Poots, which might explain why she unpersoned herself and created the identity of Skye. Of course, neither of these is her real name - that's [[spoiler:ComicBook/DaisyJohnson]].

* Admiral Zaal'Koris vas Qwib-Qwib, from ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' and ''VideoGame/MassEffect3''. This is the result of: 1) his culture taking their last names from the ship they are assigned to after completing their ComingOfAge ritual, 2) his civilization buying/salvaging/taking any ship that can be of use to them, and 3) the fact that some ships have a galactic registry that makes simply renaming them extremely impractical. This is something of a [[BerserkButton sensitive topic]] for him, which Tali warns you of beforehand, but you are free to ignore this advice for the lulz.

* Percy King, the mob boss villain from ''WesternAnimation/TheNutJob''. What we think is his surname is actually his middle name. At the end of the movie, his real last name is revealed to be [[spoiler:Dimpleweed]].



* Jassart [=LeBlanc=]'s real last name in ''WebComic/SnowByNight'' is Charbonnier. It's embarrassing to him because it means "son of a charcoaler," which is more or less the most looked-down-upon occupation in Saronnean society. ''

* There is a running joke in the ''Waxahachie Smith'' novels by JTEdson regarding how embarrassing the surname Ramsbottom is. Smith even adopts it as his GoToAlias on the grounds that nobody would pick it as an assumed name.
