** There's also an odd example with 'Space Wives', wherein the name exists but doesn't seem to belong to any particular ship. It seems to be shared between Uhura/Chapel, Uhura/T'Pring, and [[Rule63 Kirk/Spock]], but there may well be others.

* It hasn't caught on all that widely yet, but ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust'' has a number of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' fans referring to the Shinji/Rei/Asuka OT3 as "The Israfel Special".

* ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust'':
** Shinji/Asuka/Rei is called the "Israfel Special", based off of a running gag whenever Asuka and Shinji bring up the ThreesomeSubtext between them and Rei.
** Rei/Kaworu has several names: "[=TsundeReinbowTrout=]" (which doubles as a PortmanteauCoupleName of their {{Fan Nickname}}s), "Impact Shipping", and (very rarely) "The Forbidden Union".
** Shinji/Asuka/Rei/Kaworu is called "[=PilOT4=]".

* A post on Website/{{Tumblr}} mocks the widespread usage of this by making up a shipping name (Candy in the Wind) and calling it so vague that [[CrackPairing it could mean anything up to]] [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Aang]][[Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory /Charlie Bucket.]]

* In ''Videogame/{{Oxenfree}}'' there's Jonas/Ren, known as "Weed beanies", due to Ren getting high on pot brownies over the course of the game and Jonas, well, wearing a beanie.

Identifying a [[{{Shipping}} ship]] with both characters' names is functional but not catchy, and even {{Portmanteau Couple Name}}s aren't always colorful enough for the purposes of shipping communities. Therefore, a lot of ships are named in ways that aren't obvious except to those familiar with all the intricacies of the show's fandom.

* Series/DoctorWho has the Doctor/Clara ship christened as "Whouffle" (Who/[[ItMakesSenseInContext Soufflé]]). Fans are called "Whoufflepuffs". In a strange development, with a new regeneration the ship name has branched out two "sub-catagories"; When talking specifically about Twelve/Clara, it's known as "Whouffaldi" (in reference to Creator/PeterCapaldi, who plays Twelve), and Eleven/Clara is known as "Souffez" (Souffle/Fez), though the over-all Doctor/Clara pairing (referring to any incarnation of the Doctor and Clara) is still called "Whouffle". It has a regular portmanteau pairing name as well, "Cloctor".

* ''Series/{{Victoria}}'': a very rare example of a ''biographical'' series based on real events featuring this (with the show's creator and production house actually endorsing the names at one point):
** "Vicbourne" = Queen Victoria and Lord Melbourne (aka. "Lord M")
** "Vicbert" = Queen Victoria and Prince Albert

* The ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' fandom came up with a number of appropriate titles or description for different pairings. An interesting subversion is made on this case; rather than just using the title itself, the fans actually tag it behind the respective [[PortmanteauCoupleName Portmanteau Couple Names]] to form a phrase. For example, "[=MariAli=] is [[OneTruePairing my justice]]" for Marisa/Alice, "[=YukaRei=] is my way" for Yukari/Reimu, "[=MokoKene=] is the reign of god" for Mokou/Keine, and so on. These are popular among Japanese ''Touhou'' fans and are recognized as creative ways to say a certain pairing is their [[OneTruePairing OTP]].

* The [[FanPreferredCouple more popular]] ''WesternAnimation/{{Ninjago}}'' ships among the pairings [[HoYay between the ninjas]] (or at least the ones with obvious word connections between the partners) have names combining their respective [[ElementalPowers elements]]. Canon ships like Jay x Nya are usually [[PortmanteauCoupleName portmanteau couple names]] instead.
