* The Sun and the Moon. Every other moon we observe is given a name, but the Earth's moon is just called the Moon, and our solar system's sun is simply called the Sun. Sometimes people will refer to them as Sol and Luna to make it clear which sun or moon they're talking about, but those names are simply "sun" and "moon" in Latin.

** In ''Literature/TheBible'', a number of different Egyptian Pharaohs are referred to as "Pharaoh" rather than "the Pharaoh" and are titled "King of Egypt" as though Pharaoh is their name instead of their title. Some other "Kings of Egypt" are given actual names (such as Shishak in 1 Kings), so this discrepancy may boil down to confusion.

Hilariously subverted when it slips out that his full name is [[AwesomeMcCoolName Mordecai Benmont Jiminy]].
