* [[Literature/HarryPotter Harry]] is spectacularly bad at coming up with creative names in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5133535/1/Rising-Powers Rising Powers]]''. He tries to name his first friend, a snake, Mr. Snake. Following that, Hedwig has to help spell out her chosen name for him when he tries to assign Snowy and Owly to her. [[spoiler:And to his surrogate parent, the tree that he'd been living in inhabiting a body reminiscent of his mother, he named her Willow.]]

** Lancre ''as a country'' is [[RunningGag repeatedly said]] to suffer from this sort of thing, for two reasons. Firstly, its largely rural and uncomplicated population tend to choose names without regard for meaning ("There'd be a little Chlamydia running around today if her mother hadn't decided Sally was easier to spell"); and secondly, the Lancrastian naming custom dictating that whatever the naming priest says at the appropriate moment ''is'' the name. This has led to such gems as Princess Esmeralda Margaret Note Spelling, King My God He's Heavy the First, and James What The Hell's That Cow Doing In Here Poorchick.

* Aurica from ''ArTonelico''. You can still go with her names for the items you make, but really, you're better off using your own or a different Reyvateil to name stuff. In the second game, [[spoiler: Mir]] even refers to her as "the girl who sucks at naming things."

*** In ''Nanny Ogg's Cookbook'', during the course of preparing a cheese sandwich, he redesigns a war machine to pull a plough and, since it's key feature is ''traction'', calls it the Machine For Pulling Heavy Loads. Also, to keep dairies cool for the cheese, he invents a device for regulating temperature by means of metal strips coupled to pulleys. He calls it the Device For Regulating Temperature By Means of Metal Stips (Coupled to Pulleys)

** In the sequel the rebels on Hoth fire the "Giant Boob-Nipple gun" at the Imperial fleet. An immature rebel runs out to cop a feel on it in case the joke didn't sell itself.

A few issues later he's introduced to the titular team by a sorcerer who similarly shouts his name with a straight face. The team can barely stand they're laughing so hard.
