This is, in essence, an [[AvertedTrope Aversion]] of a ShoutOut (although there are occasional cases where it's actually done as a Shout Out). Said characters happen to have a few similar attributes and the same name, ('''Unless the name is a single word, not "a similar name" nor "The same first name" nor "The same last name". The entire name is the same.''') but it's meaningless, or not overly significant. AliceAllusion, MyHeroZero, and NameOfCain are subtropes. Compare and contrast OneMarioLimit. See also UnfortunateNames and AcronymConfusion. If this applies to a character and his/her actor/actress, see TheDanza. When imposed on a character by their parents (or other namers) may lead to a WhoNamesTheirKidDude. If a character acknowledges that they have the same name as a celebrity, it's NamedLikeMyName. May lead to HistoricalCharacterConfusion.

In articles or discussions of obscure works featuring such a character, first mention of said characters name would be followed by the phrase, "No, not that one.". This is more typical when the character shares a name with a much more well known counterpart. (Do not do this on [=TVtropes=], not unless it's a defining aspect of the subject. Most of the time, it's trivia, and belongs in the trivia tab.)

When there are a large number of entries in a section, they will be ordered in alphabetical order by last name first, to make it easier to find previous entries and the name that more than one party or thing has will be in bold. If you add an entry to a subsection organized this way, please go along, thanks.
