** It was also so that he could keep the identity he was best known as, since the WWE owned the Ultimate Warrior name. Considering what happened with the likes of the Dudleys when they left the WWE & were forced to drop the names they had become known by throughout the industry, he's been VindicatedByHistory.

* In ''Literature/CatchTwentyTwo'', you've got Captain Major (whose first and middle names are also Major, making his full name [[Repetitive Name Major Major Major]]), being promoted... to Major. Thus making him Major Major Major Major. Any further attempts to promote or demote him are blocked by [[AlmightyJanitor ex-P.F.C. Wintergreen]], who finds the whole situation hilarious.

* In a variant from the world of TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}, an employer who hire shadowrunners is colloquially referred to as "Mr. Johnson", regardless of gender, to ensure anonymity. One of them self-{{Lampshades}} this trope in one of the Shadowrun novels, remarking on the irony that her name really ''is'' Johnson.

* ''Literature/{{Holes}}'': Mr Sir's last name really is Sir. [[EmbarrassingFirstName His first name]] [[GenderBlenderName on the other hand...]] It's implied in the sequel that "Mr Sir" is a pseudonym he uses to hide from the police. Supported by the film, in which he is identified at the end as Marion Sevillo, and he is arrested on a parole violation.

* In ''Literature/ArtemisFowl'', there's the Butler-family, who have served as butlers (of the '[[BattleButler battle]]' variety) to the Fowl-family for generations. According to the first book, there is some dispute about whether the Butler-family changed their name to suit their role, at some point in antiquity - or if the term 'Butler' was actually derived from the famously faithful and competent Butler-family.

** In the case of the Abrahamic god, this began as an actual religious prohibition on speaking any of his 'true' names outside of appropriate rituals, and after a few thousand years of no one being allowed to say YHWH and even most of the titles like 'Adonai' being considered so sacred that once you wrote them they had to be preserved forever, MemeticMutation caused even most of the Rabbinical traditions to start just using 'God' as his name rather than a job description, and eventually considering that sacred enough to violate the rules against cursing with it or writing it on any disposable medium as well (certain Jewish sects write it now as G-d). So this doubles as a case of EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep.
