Added DiffLines:

* The wrestling booking simulator Game/TotalExtremeWrestling has a fictional wrestler named Jack Bruce who works a rock star gimmick and shares a name with the late Music/{{Cream}} bassist.
* Philippine Wrestling Revolution wrestler John Sebastian. You know, like the guy who sang for the Lovin' Spoonful and did the theme to Series/WelcomeBackKotter and the Franchise/CareBears cartoon.

* The Scottish folk song "Leezie Lindsay" is about a peasant girl who is courted by, and marries, a chieftain. In at least one version, his name is Ronald MacDonald. Though the song probably pre-dates the fast food chain by centuries, it's funny to hear the line "For she's to wed Ronald MacDonald."

* ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'' gave us George Michael, whose name is perfectly logical (he's named for his grandfather and his father respectively). Almost looks like it could be an AvertedTrope because it's only mentioned once in the whole series ("Are you sure it wasn't the other George Michael? You know; the singer songwriter?") but it's clear that the idea of a nerdy, self-conscious teenage kid who questions almost everything he does and thinks being lumbered with George Michael as a name is an intentional layer. He's also ''never'' called simply "George".
** Season 4 finds George Michael getting very tired of sharing a name with a man arrested for lewd acts in a public restroom and deciding to adopt the pseudonym "George Maharis." [[http://www.nndb.com/people/554/000091281/ Too bad he didn't know something about his new namesake.]]
