* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' plays around with this like it does so many other tropes. The game starts out by asking the player to "Name the fallen child." Unlike some examples, the game ''[[DevelopersForesight will]]'' catch you if you try to use a canon character's name (and there are a lot of them), usually with a quote from said character saying you can't use their name [[FunnyMoments (Papyrus says he'll allow it, though)]].

* Any time a person, place, or thing can be renamed in a game, bringing the matter up for a vote is a time-honored tradition in the Website/SomethingAwful LetsPlay forum. A GenreSavvy [=LPer=] will be quick to ban obvious joke names ("Dongs" is generally not a valid name for this reason), but sometimes the goons do come up with pretty clever ThemeNaming schemes.

* Played with in the PC versions of ''WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire'', where you can name yourself for the game's high score list, but any attempt to name yourself "Regis" or "Millionaire" would result in your name being changed to "Faker," "Wannabe," or something similar.

* In the sport-themed comedy panel show ''A League Of Their Own'' (not to be confused with [[ALeagueOfTheirOwn the movie of the same name]]), one of the contestants did this with, of all things, a ''horse''. He told the story of how he bought a horse and named it "Some Horse", just to get the announcer at races saying things like "And Some Horse is coming round the outside" or "And in fifth place, it's Some Horse".

* ''CitiesSkylines'' allows you to rename every [=NPC=], building, and even the pets of the [=NPCs=], providing the opportunity for vast amounts of immaturity. The ''Mass Transit'' DLC expands this further by allowing you to rename roads and highways for your creative imagination.
