* ''Webcomic/Homestuck'' would intentionally invoke this trope by referring to characters by their online screen names when their real names hadn't yet been chosen. For example, Jade was referred to only as GG (short for gardenGnostic) until her name was officially chosen at the start of Act 3.

Compare TheTropeWithoutATitle, YouKnowTheOne, and IKnowYourTrueName (which may be a reason for this). Contrast OnlyOneName, EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep, and IAmNotShazam. Compare and contrast TheScottishTrope, for where characters know a name, but actively avoid saying it. See also NamelessNarrative. When a character genuinely has no name whatsoever (as opposed to it not being given in the work), then they are TheNameless.

* Played with in Wiki/{{Killerbunnies}}, as technically, any Killerbunny born, raised, or used in a lab for laboratory use don't normally have names, aside from their identification codes, which wouldn't be a name, unless it is counted as such, as would be the case with Test Subject 001892300012 ("Lucy"), Experiment [=XI0014101=] ("Marigold"), and Child #999 ("Lilith"). However, this, according to WordOfGod, is subverted in the case of Michealenne, as that is the name on one of her [=ID=] tags.
