** 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.


Added DiffLines:

* UsefulNotes/{{Seoul}} had names like Wiyresong, Namgyeong, Hanseong, Hanyang, Gyeongseong or Keijo, and of course, Seoul.
* Similar to it's capital city, UsefulNotes/{{South Korea}} has names like Hanguk, Daehanminguk (official name), Namjoseon (used by North Korea sympathizers) and Namhan.

* Some college sports teams have more than one nickname. Army is known as the Cadets and the Black Knights. North Texas is the Eagles and the Mean Green. Virginia Tech can be the Hokies or the Gobblers, although Gobblers isn't used much anymore. The LSU Tigers are often called the Bayou Bengals. Sometimes the women's teams will have different nicknames than the men: USC's men teams are the Trojans, while the women are the Women of Troy.

Sometimes the women's teams will have different nicknames than the men: USC's men teams are the Trojans, while the women are the Women of Troy.Troy and Trojans are used interchangeably for women's teams.
* In the case of men's and women's teams at a given college, it can be more complicated...
** Some use a feminized version of the men's nickname for all women's teams. For example, all three Division I schools that use Cowboys as their men's team nickname[[note]][=McNeese=] State, Oklahoma State, Wyoming[[/note]] call their women's teams Cowgirls.
** Others use a feminine nickname for some but not all women's teams:
*** In the case of LSU, it depends on whether a particular sport has men's and women's teams. If so, Lady Tigers is used for the women's team. If a sport is sponsored only for women, it's known simply as Tigers.
*** 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.
** Some schools have very different nicknames for men's and women's teams—for one particularly notable example, Louisiana Tech calls its men's teams Bulldogs and its women's teams Lady Techsters.
*** UNLV is a special case—it uses separate nicknames only in basketball. Men's basketball uses Runnin' Rebels; women's basketball uses Lady Rebels; all other sports are just Rebels.

* Creator/ABCFamily. When it started up in 1977 it was a spin-off of the Christian Broadcasting Network and was named CBN Satellite Network, later revised to CBN Cable Network at the dawn of TheEighties. In 1988 it was revised again to CBN Family Channel before being spun off two years later and now going by The Family Channel, having become too profitable for the nonprofit CBN to keep. In 1997, the channel was brought by Fox, who renamed it Fox Family; however they didn't know what to do with it and sold it to Disney in 2001, who then gave it the name ABC Family. In 2015, Disney announced that the channel would be renamed ''again'', this time to the more neutral Freeform, due for January 2016, making for a total of ''seven'' name-changes in the channel's nearly 40-year history.
