* Back in the territory days of wrestling, it was not uncommon for a wrestler to change names/gimmicks upon going to a new area until he found something that worked for him. Baby Bull and Bull Power were chosen before Wrestling/BigVanVader (who also wrestled under his real name of Leon White in the AWA) became a thing, and even after that he sometimes switched to Super Vader.

** From the backstory, Tiber Septim was the [[FounderOfTheKingdom founder]] of the Third Tamriellic Empire who [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence ascended after his death]] as [[DeityOfHumanOrigin Talos]], the Ninth Divine. He was known by many names, including Tiber Septim, Talos Stormcrownd, Hjalti Early-Beard, Ysmir Dragon of the North, Wulf, and others. There is even debate regarding which of these was his birth name, as Septim has a MultipleChoicePast further complicated by [[HistoricalHeroUpgrade Imperial propaganda]] and even a CosmicRetcon which may have made his multiple conflicting pasts all true, regardless of the conflicts.

* Romans had a praenomen, nomen (or nomen gentile), and cognomen. Praenomen was the given name (e.g. Gaius), nomen was the clan name (e.g. Julius), of which, potentially, there could be several, cognomen was a name that distinguished an individual based on his characteristics (e.g. Caesar, Tacitus). In addition, accomplished individuals often added an agnomen, based on their accomplishments, such as military victories (e.g. Africanus).[[note]]which is a bit like nicknaming General Eisenhower "German" or calling general Sherman "Atlantan" - of course what is meant is "he of x fame" or "he who beat the y" just like William H. Harrison was known as "Tippercanoe" due to his victory there[[/note]] in addition, there may be additional patronyms based on names of their parents or even grandparents. The other wiki [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman_names]] provides multiple examples.
