* In ''Film/{{Ted}}'', when John is trying to guess Ted's new girlfriend's name, he runs through a list of stereotypical white trash names with hilarious speed. When he exhausts the list, he asks if it was any of the previous names on the list with Lynn at the end. He successfully gets it when he hits "Tammi-Lynn".

* ''Series/KeyAndPeele'''s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gODZzSOelss East/West College Bowl skit]]. And [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rT1nGjGM2p8 its sequel]]. The names start out as the normal version of this trope, becoming more and more exaggerated as they go on until they're the most ridiculous names imaginable. Also note D'Jasper Probincrux III, who manages to blend this with PreppyName.
