* 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. ''
