** This seems to be a habit among Time Agents - when an old colleague meets him, he asks what name Jack's currently "wearing", and promptly dubs himself "Captain John Hart" as a joke.

* ''Literature/TheDalemarkQuartet'': The Undying tend to rack up names in general, but the [[MagicMusic musician-mage]] born Mallard indisputably takes the cake. Ready? Here goes: Mage Mallard, [[AffectionateNickname Duck]], Oril, Tanamoril, Osfameron, the Wanderer, Wend, Wend Orilson. Usually, he's called either Duck or Wend, the names he's called in the two books in which he features prominently, ''The Spellcoats'' and ''The Crown of Dalemark'' respectively.

** The RidiculouslyHumanRobot with the personality of female soldier Nimue Alban takes on the identity of Merlin Athrawes to enter Safeholdian society. It stays that way initially, but as the series goes on Merlin takes advantage of his robotic body's ability to change appearance to assume different identities, such as Ahbraim Zhevons and Dialydd Mab, so he can perform tasks he can't do or be seen doing as Merlin. As his roster grows, he laments he needs a chart to keep track of everyone.

* Harold Finch on ''Series/PersonOfInterest'' has many, many alternate identities, most of them Harold Some-Kind-Of-Bird. He has so many that even he admits that he's not sure if Harold Finch is his real name or not; it's just the identity he feels fits him best. It's eventually revealed that his name really is Harold, though his last name is still a mystery. Harold's partner Reese also has a large number of aliases, with his original name being somewhat unknown as well (It's John H. <Unknown>).

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' adapted several elements of the Creator/TimBurton films at first, including the Joker as a mob hitman, even going as far as to identify the Joker by the name of [[Film/{{Batman}} Jack Napier]] at first. However, the episode, "Beware the Creeper" later retconned this into one of many alias the hitman pre-Joker used before his transformation.

* Happens whenever a stray dog sneaks into a school. Every group of children will give it a different name unless it gets shooed out on time.
** Likewise, a class pet that's relatively long-lived, like a rabbit or guinea pig, may accumulate several names if the teacher allows each incoming class to vote on what they'd like to call it.

** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]], [[PlayerCharacter the Nerevarine]] fits. In addition to the Nerevarine and several variants (Nerevar Incarnate, the Incarnate, the Nerevarine Incarnate and Nerevarine 'of Four Tribes' in a certain prophetic context), one will pick up the titles of Hortator of the Great Houses, Operative of the Blades, and Hearthfriend of the Ashlanders. And those merely come from completing the main quest. Add in [[TryToFitThatOnABusinessCard titles from the various Guilds and Factions]], as well as some more from the expansions, and it's possible to come away with over a ''dozen'' titles.

* The Player Character in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim''. To the dragons, you are [[IAmWho Dovahkiin]]. To people who know the legends, you are [[YouAreTheTranslatedForeignWord Dragonborn]]. The Graybeards give you the name Ysmir, whom the previous world-changing dragonborn Tiber Septim was given before you. You are probably [[ScrewYouElves "Whoever in oblivion is killing all our Justiciars out on the roads"]] to the Thalmor. And of course, you are [[HelloInsertNameHere whatever you name your character.]]
** The [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Nerevarine]] is usually referred to as, well, the Nerevarine outside his/her game, but there is also Hortator ('of Three Houses'), several variants on Nerevarine (Nerevar Incarnate, the Incarnate, the Nerevarine Incarnate -- ''and'' Nerevarine 'of Four Tribes' in a certain prophetic context), Operative in the Blades and Hearthfriend of the Ashlanders. Bloodmoon adds Bloodskaal, and all this is just the titles you ''will'' get in the course of the main quests. Add in (as the main quest encourages you to) a few Guild or House (or even religious) titles...

* In ''Webcomic/{{Lovesyck}}'' many characters have nicknames or titles, however assassin Carver Stucco stands out for being variably known as: The Knife, Red Shark, Dead Lady C, Our Lady of the Inquisition and Soullyss. After losing her eyes she's also mockingly called Dollface, although few say it her in person.
