** Naturally, ''VideoGame/PokemonGo'' players picked up on the dirty name stuff as soon as the appraisal feature, with comments on a Pokemon's size, was released.

* The ''VideoGame/QuestForGlory'' series lets you name your character, but it's mostly a moot point because you only get addressed by name twice in the entire five-game series (in the very first conversation, and at the end of the third game).

** [[spoiler: The big twist (which you discover on either the Pacifist or Genocide routes) is that "the Fallen Child" and the child you play as are two different (but similar-looking) characters. The player character's ''real'' name is Frisk. And the one you named? They were the First Child, Asriel's childhood friend, and major character in the game's backstory (And GreaterScopeVillain of the Genocide path, [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential alongside you]]). If you notice carefully, only Flowey ever addresses you by name, and that's because he's what's left of Asriel, thinking that Frisk and the Fallen Child are one and the same (and on the Genocide route, [[DemonicPossession he's not entirely wrong]]).]]

That being said, many players that found out about the twist with the naming scheme would have their share of fun on future playthroughs by renaming the first fallen child with a silly or inappropriate name, leading to a MoodWhiplash in the more emotional scenes.]]

** In the Japanese version, Ayla calls Crono (Kurono, クロノ) by a simplified nickname, Kuro (クロ). This happens even if you give Crono a custom name. For instance, if you name Crono "Hiroshi" (ひろし), Ayla will always call him "Hiro" (ひろ). There is an algorithm that shortens the name by retaining only the two first syllables, and works conveniently because of how Japanese language is written. This feature was removed in the English release, so Ayla uses the same name for Crono as everyone else. Some fan translations have created their own Ayla-speech features. For instance, the Finnish translation includes an elaborate engine that shortens clusters of consonants, turning Crono into Rono, Matti into Mati, or Ilkka into Ikka.

* Almost all {{RPG}}s made by Creator/{{Bioware}} allowed you to name your character, and almost all have involved voice acting. The solution to the naming problem has been to simply refer to your name only in the written dialogue, and only in passing. For example, you could have "I don't think that's a very good idea, <name>" in the dialogue with the voice acting simply being "I don't think that's a very good idea". There is separate voice acting for the male/female distinction, however. ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublicII'' partly averts this by giving the main character the moniker "Exile" (canonically "Jedi Exile"), while in ''Franchise/MassEffect'', the player can only change the ''first name'' of Commander Shepard and it's is never used anywhere in the game.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'', ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', your can name the main character whatever you please, and the chosen name appears in dialogue text where appropriate but is not included in the voice-acting, in much the same fashion as some of the BioWare examples already mentioned. Sometimes, the P3 protagonist will be referred to as 'Leader' (or 'Our Leader' if he's not around), while P4 further gets around the issue by having Yosuke refer to the main character as 'Partner', while Teddie calls him 'Sensei' and Rise, Kanji and Naoto all call him 'Senpai'.

* [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV Grand Theft Auto Online]] let's you name your characters online, but after that, you'll probably never see it again, unless you've created multiple characters and are in the character select screen- the parts of the game with voice acting will never mention your name, and in cases where names are shown, only the player's Social Club nickname ever comes up, not the name of the character that the player has designated.
