* The ''RossOCarrollKelly'' novels have many, many female characters whose parents have given them affected unique forenames; Ross even refers to them as "Jayne with a Y", "Keera with two E's", "Erika with a K"...

* ''Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy'' from the ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' gives us the evil clones [[EvilMentor Joruus C'baoth]] and [[EvilKnockoff Luuke Skywalker]] (cloned from Jedi Master [[OutboundFlight Jorus C'baoth]] and Luke Skywalker, respectively). Although the spelling of these names is not called into question (because the characters never had to spell them), the "telltale mispronunciation" was mentioned as a sign that these were indeed clones. Since this is TimothyZahn we're talking about, there's a pun involved too: It's not just a mispronunciation; since both clones characters have the letter U in their names, the clone is ''Another U''. (One wonders what C'baoth would've named the clone of Mara Jade he intended to create. "Maura"? "Maara"?)

* Two stories on Website/NotAlwaysRight actually invert this. The person is actually trying to give a fairly normal spelling, and gets a completely new name back. In one, he says his name is "Stephen with a Ph" and gets called Pheven. In the other, a girl is Jessika with a K, and gets called Kessica.

** Relatedly, there's an image that circulates online occasionally of a Starbucks cup addressed to "Cark." The story goes that the customer specified that his name was "Marc with a C."

* Creator/KimKardashian's [[Series/KeepingUpWithTheKardashians sisters Kourtney and Khloé]] are named so because their mother, Kris (short for Kristen), liked the names but wanted her daughters to have the "K" in their names like her. Kim herself and their half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner got away with more common "K" names.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/SistersNoWay'' Cindy's narration mentions that her mother wanted to spell her name 'Cyndi' but her very Irish father refused.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Wrestling/Bayley}} spells her name with a second y instead of 'Bailey'. According to the woman herself, the latter was the original spelling. But since she's from the Bay Area of San Jose, she opted to spell it that way.
