Added DiffLines:

* ''WebAnimation/DCSuperheroGirls'' features no secret identites. Everyone is referred to as their superhero name... Except for ComicBook/GreenLantern, who goes by "Hal Jordan". This probably signifies that there are multiple active Green Lantern's but we have only seen Hal.

* Happens more often than one might expect in GameOfThrones, due to the importance people place on family names. Common people don't even have last names, so calling someone by their full name is a way of acknowledging their nobility. What's more, noble bastards [[note]]offspring of nobles born out of wedlock or unclaimed by their noble parents[[/note]] are usually shunned by society, and have special last names based on where their mother was from [[note]]Snow, Flowers, Sand, etc[[/note]], thus invoking ''their'' full name is a way of reminding them of their oft-shunned position in society.

* The narrator in ''PushingDaisies'' does this a lot. Except for Ned, who apparently doesn't have a last name.
* Bob Rooney, a minor character from ''MarriedWithChildren'' was never called simply 'Bob' (even his wife calls out his full name in the bedroom). The writers once explained that in every group of friends one person is always called by his full name.
* On ''TheMiddleMan'', Noser always refers to Wendy as "Wendy Watson".
* ''ThePriceIsRight'' host Drew Carey usually refers to TheAnnouncer, Rich Fields, by his full name, especially when asking for another contestant. Rich sometimes plays along and prefixes his copy with "All right, Drew Carey..."

* In ''GilmoreGirls'', Emily lampshades this in her jealousy over Pennilyn Lott, an old flame of Richard's: she states that Lott should never be referred to as anything other than Pennilyn Lott, indicating her wish that no one should be familiar with Pennilyn.

* FunnyForeigner Nelly Smith from ''WebAnimation/SenpaiClub'' is always referred to by her full name, even by herself.



* Almost every character in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has a two-word name. As such, characters such as Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie are called by their full names on a regular basis, though abbreviating it to just "Rainbow" or "Pinkie" is fairly common in the show. Other characters such as Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle are referred to exclusively with both names, though the fandom sometimes gives them [[FanNickname nicknames]] for convenience's sake. One notable aversion is Twilight Sparkle, whose name "Sparkle" is usually dropped unless addressed by her enemies, or as a FullNameUltimatum.

* Scar in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' would address everyone he spoke either by their full name or their state alchemist title. Al was one of the few that didn't have both and was thus always addressed by Scar as "Alphonse Elric." Which sounded rather awkward at times...
