* ''VideoGame/MetalGearGhostBabel'' for the GameBoyColor was retitled ''Metal Gear Solid'' (after [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid its PlayStation counterpart]]) in North America and Europe, because they wanted to lead people into thinking that it were a GBC port of [=MGS1=]. Although ''Ghost Babel'' can be considered a loose conversion of the original ''Metal Gear Solid'', it doesn't have the same story, much less follow the same continuity.

* The original Japanese version of ''Super Mario Bros. 2'' is known as ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBrosTheLostLevels'' overseas due to the unrelated version of ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2'' (a [[DolledUpInstallment modified localization]] of ''Doki Doki Panic''') that was released in its place. The GameBoyColor port featured in ''Super Mario Bros. DX'', known as ''Super Mario Bros. For Super Players'', is actually an almagam between the original ''Super Mario'' and the Japanese ''Super Mario 2'', as it uses the game system and graphics from the former and the stages from the latter.

* There are two unrelated American department stores both called Bealls: one based in Texas and one in Florida. Overlap was inevitable, so the Florida one goes by "Burke's Outlet" in areas where the Texas one is present (and oddly, a few markets where the Texas one isn't).

* In Canada, this is quite prevalent. [=DiGiorno=] pizza is called Delissio; Reese's and Hershey's drop the S from the end so that the names can still work in Quebec French, which lacks the possessive S; The Home Depot drops "The" from its name so that its name can also work better in Quebec French; and KFC is referred to only in Quebec as PFK (Poulet Frit Kentucky, the French translation of "Kentucky Fried Chicken").

* Church's Chicken is called "Texas Chicken" outside the United States. It has nothing to do with a church--the founder's name was George Church--but the company didn't want to confuse people. The chain did originate in Texas (George Church's original restaurant was in San Antonio--right across the street from the Alamo, in fact), though oddly [[NonindictiveName its headquarters are now in Atlanta]].

The proper title is a reference WWI vet A.B. Facey's autobiography ''A Fortunate Life''.
