* ''WesternAnimation/TitanAE'':
** At the end, they name the new planet New Earth. Actually, they just name it "Earth", but people adopt the "new" label for it anyway. (Of course, Cale wanted to call it Planet Bob.) The movie itself presents the planet at the end as "New Earth - (Planet Bob)".
** There is also New UsefulNotes/{{Bangkok}}, which is a drifter colony (space station) whose population is mostly [[UsefulNotes/{{Thailand}} Thai]].

UsefulNotes/{{Bangkok}}" and "[[spoiler:Earth]]" (which people insist on calling "New [[spoiler:Earth]]", despite the fact that the original has been destroyed, so there's not much chance of confusion).

* Creator/GordonRDickson's ChildeCycle -- Harmony and Association. Settled by several fundamentalist sects, the names were an attempt to try to ease tensions. It doesn't work. Another example, Newton. An appropriately named world for a technocratic planet.

* Creator/GordonRDickson's ChildeCycle -- Mara, named after the Buddhist equivalent of Satan. In-universe, the name was a holdover from when the Exotics were the Chantry Guild, specifically occultists. Possibly Zombri, which is close enough to "Zombie".

* TheEschatonSeries: The planet of New Muscovy, which includes the land of New Austria and the city of New Prague. There's also Novy Petrograd (New St. Petersburg), the capital of Rochard's World. These are mostly justified, since most of these planet's inhabitants were transported there suddenly.

* ''TechInfantry'' has New Madrid, which in-universe is an example of "New Planet" naming as above. But the real reason it was named that was that the Midwestern people who wrote ''Tech Infantry'' named it for New Madrid, Missouri, and the earthquake-prone fault line that runs through it.
