* ''Literature/TheDemonHeadmaster'' has no given name or, for that matter, backstory; [[ArtifactTitle although he's only a Headmaster in the first book]], the heroes still call him that because that's how they first met him (and it's just easier).

* ''Literature/TheDemonHeadmaster'' has no given name or, for that matter, backstory; [[ArtifactTitle although he's only a Headmaster in the first book]], the heroes still call him that because that's how they first met him (and it's just easier). He does have a name, and in fact what his real name is is an important plot point in the fifth book, but the prose always finds a way to avoid saying it. (This was taken to extremes in the TV adaptation of the second book, where a list of names with his on it was also an important part of the plot but still managed to avoid showing his name.)

** Has a medic introduced with the name [=DuFresne=]. It's decided by the other characters that his name is too hard to pronounce and he is christened "Doc" for the remainder of the series.
** The Red Team Sergeant is an example for most of the series, known only as Sarge, however it is eventually revealed his name [[HisNameReallyIsBarkeep is actually Sarge.]]
** Sister is another example. Her real name is stated by the DVD profiles to be Kaikaina (which is Hawaiian for "younger sibling of the same sex," which counts as a StealthInsult to Grif), but all characters, including her older brother, only ever call her Sister.

* Dukes and earls in the UK commonly refer to each other by their title. For example, the Earl of Warwick would be simply addressed by his peers as "Warwick". Ditto for the Empire of Brazil. Both historians and contemporary accounts refer to people with noble rank by the rank. UsefulNotes/DukeOfCaxias, for example, is almost never referred to by his actual name.

* ''Film/TheAmericanPresident'' has this as such a driving theme that it's reflected in the title of the movie. Andrew Shepard can't even get his best friend to address him by name when they're shooting pool.
-->'''A.J.:''' Nice shot, Mr. President.
-->'''President Shepherd:''' 'Nice shot, Mr. President?' You won't even call me by my name when we're playing pool?
-->'''A.J.:''' [[Creator/DrSeuss I will not do it playing pool, I will not do it in a school. I do not like green eggs and ham, I do not like them, Sam I Am.]]
-->'''President Shepherd:''' At ease, A.J., at ease.
