* In ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' the Emergency Medical Hologram was called simply "The Doctor" and never got a proper name. Though since he was a piece of software and not a human, he didn't really ''need'' a name.
** It didn't take many seasons for him to need a proper name (being left running for longer than intended led to him developing an actual ''identity'', and the Doctor knew full well that should mean having a proper name). The problem was that he didn't manage to decide what that proper name should be, so he stayed as 'The Doctor' or 'the Voyager EMH Mark I' for the duration.
*** He did settle on the name 'Schweitzer' in one episode, but dropped the name as too emotionally painful (without having told anyone in the crew about it) after an unpleasant outcome of a holodeck adventure.
