*** Tennessee long called all of its women's teams Lady Volunteers, but in 2015 it dropped "Lady" from all of its women's teams except basketball. This was controversial enough that quite serious efforts were made in the state legislature to ''[[SeriousBusiness pass a law requiring restoration of the Lady Vols name]]''.

* Sports stadiums and arenas can go through several names due to corporate sponsors paying money to have their name on the facilities. The current home of the Miami Dolphins and University of Miami Hurricanes, for instance, began life as Joe Robbie Stadium in 1987. At various times since, it has been known as Pro Player Park, Pro Player Stadium, Dolphin Stadium, Dolphin'''s''' Stadium, Land Shark Stadium, Sun Life Stadium, New Miami Stadium, and now Hard Rock Stadium.

* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' has Lwaxana Troi, Daughter of the Fifth House, Holder of the Sacred Chalice of Rixx, and Heir to the Holy Rings of Betazed. She is also Deanna Troi's mother, a chief ambassador for Betazed, and a great thorn in Captain Picard's side. In one episode, Deanna exasperatedly points out that at least some of those titles are obsolete, and "The Sacred Chalice of Rixx is an old [[strike:cup]] clay pot with mold growing in it." The first series of her titles eventually became a BadassCreed in an ExpandedUniverse novel when Lwaxana ''[[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu beat the snot out of Q.]]''
** Punctuating each title with a kick or a smack, no less.

* Creator/MichaelJFox's character in ''Film/TheSecretOfMySuccess'' only had two: his real name, Brantley Foster, and his alias for [[spoiler: faking his way into a position of prominence at his uncle's company]], Carlton Whitfield. However, the nature of the business world leads to people referring to him casually as only a first or last name. When, at a party, he's addressed by all four names by various partygoers, he explains to his date that his parents weren't satisfied with just one name. "My monogram looks like an eyechart."

** A non sponsor-related version was the SaoPaulo stadium built for UsefulNotes/TheWorldCup in 2014: the names Arena de São Paulo (obvious reasons), Arena Corinthians (after the team that kept the arena after the Cup), and Arena Itaquera (the neighborhood the venue is located) were all being used in promotional material, traffic signs and media coverage. The press also kept the nickname coined during construction, "Itaquerão". All this drove away companies that could seek naming rights, making Corinthians lose a profitable opportunity.

** Actually, children who live in China and South Korea are given Western names. Christianity is one of the most common religions so Christian children have an extra name for their religion, but most children who aren't Christian also have Western names as well.

Added DiffLines:

*** These names are never taken seriously as they only apply when you're in a English class and as they grow up it gets forgotten and more people are referring themselves with their original names, at least in Korea.
