Gods and whatnot tend to have hundreds of names. This comes from religious traditions where God had many names, usually with magical connotations, all considered derivatives from his true, secret name.

** The four-eyed cat is named Vodka Mutini (Mutie for short) by Rose and [[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} Dr Meowgon Spengler]] by John. And the toy bunny is named [[Film/ConAir Liv Tyler]] by John, [[Film/WeekendAtBernies Mr Terry Kiser]] by Jake, [[Series/StarskyAndHutch Huggy Bear]] by Dirk and [[Series/ParksAndRecreation Lil Sebastian]] by Jane. It seems likely the bunny was also given other names on its various ownerships and trips through time.

* Kvothe from ''Literature/TheNameOfTheWind'' invokes this trope at the very beginning of his tale by claiming that "I've had more names than anyone has a right to."

"But I was brought up as Kvothe. My father once told me it meant "to know."" He also goes by Kote to the town he lives in and Reshi to his student.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/SandsOfDestruction'' has wanted posters with nicknames for your characters that change over the course of the game. Most are fairly absurd, but given that the wanted posters are [[FacialCompositeFailure overall horrible caricatures]], it's not so surprising that their names are equally unfitting[[note]]NiceGuy Kyrie starts off known as TheButcher because he's a KnifeNut, but really, the only thing he wants to butcher [[SupremeChef is a steak]] - and likely [[FriendToAllLivingThings a tofu steak]] at that[[/note]]. Morte (probably the only one to ''deserve'' her nicknames) overhears a couple of ferals discussing her various names - Beastslayer, Scarlet Plague - and finds the idea hilariously entertaining until they get to "[[ThisIsMyNameOnForeign Lady Death]]", which she finds lame.

* In Dorothy Dunnett's ''King Hereafter,'' Thorfinn Sigurdsson, thanks to being a CompositeCharacter, is also known by his Christian name, Macbeth. However, because this means that Thorfinn's wife must now also be a CompositeCharacter, she is variously known as Ingibjorg, Margaret, Gruoch, and (usually) Groa.
