* In ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'', TheDragon of Emperor Dorca the Just was called Pierre La Sanguinere (or "The Bloody") used to emphasize both his badassery and ruthlessness. In more modern and settled times, Rene Vorbretten gets called "Ghembretten" by his enemies when it's discovered that his grandfather was one of the [[TheEmpire Cetagandan]] Ghem-caste invaders, not the Count Vorbretten that his right to the countship derives from.

* Frequently seen in the ''Literature/VillageTales'' series. Quite a few of the LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters are ex-Forces, Old Etonians, or were up at Oxford together (or all three); and many are titled (i.e., peers). They all tend to use [[LastNameBasis surnames or titles]] in addressing or speaking of one another (and some minor academic characters appear [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep only by position-title]]); when they don't, they use school-era [[InSeriesNickname nicknames]] [[AffectionateNickname affectionate]] [[IronicNickname or]] [[EmbarrassingNickname otherwise]].
--> '''The Duke of Taunton to Teddy Gates, on the subject, in ''Literature/{{Evensong}}'':''' " the Archdeacon's always 'Flops' to ''me.'' Has been since we were at the same prepper. Glib, facile, and mean with his tuck, was Flops.... Nobby was called as such at school, and at University, by the generality, the groundlings and small deer; 'Tigger' was exclusive to those of us who were on the first XI with him. And I knew Fr Pryor as a dangerous Harrow bowler well before he ever went up to Keble and then became a clergyman: of ''course'' he was 'Googly' Pryor to us, who faced him in the Schools Match. People acquire and outgrow and shed nicknames, Tedders and don't think I don't know you were called 'Banging' Gates at school, for all too evident reasons....'
