* In one of Rick Cook's ''WizBiz'' novels, the main character asks his wife "What's his name, anyway? Everyone calls him Dragon Leader." His wife replies "Ardithjanelle. It means 'Shy flower of the woodlands.' It seems his parents were expecting a girl." The main character decides just to call him Dragon Leader.

** In most likely every book in the series, there's also at least one otter character whose title is "Skipper of Otters," and is referred to throughout the book as "Skipper," though they all probably have their own names. There are also the Gousim Log-a-logs, which have their own names but are normally referred to as "Log-a-log So-And-So."

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Who and what the Spirit King was before he was transformed into the Spirit King is unknown, but [[TheEmperor Yhwach]] refers to him as his father and is very angry at [[BlackAndGreyMorality what was done to him]]. It is implied that the Spirit King is a construct that was created by the {{Shinigami}} out of a dead being to control the boundaries that keep all the different worlds separated from each other. If he had a name before he became the Spirit King, it's never stated. He is simply known as the Spirit King and the "lynchpin between worlds", and nothing else.
