* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'' has a few, but none of them explain what the original place was (except New Badab, which replaced the Red Corsairs old homeworld of Badab).

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'': No one has any idea in what universe it was a good idea to name a planet [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Armageddon]]. No matter [[TheEmpire the Imperium]] has been fighting so many wars against Orks on this planet that Armageddon has come to mean paradise in the Ork language. It doesn't help that the current war was caused by the schemings of [[TheChessmaster Eldrad Ulthran]] -- a SpaceElf with the ability to see the future.

* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'' has a planet receiving very little light from its sun, whose inhabitants have fallen so far behind in technology that the musket is still in use, while literary and cultural stunting is prevalent. The name of this misbegotten wreck, nicknmaed "the Blighted Planet"? [[TakeThat Birmingham.]]

* ''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.
