For instance, [[Film/{{Terminator}}when a woman's baby's daddy time-travels from the future back to the 1980s to protect her from a killbot]]. Or when a [[GenderFlip father knows what to name his daughter]] because she comes back in time to say, "Hi, I'm your future daughter named Lulu." Or a psychic tells mom and dad about their future son, Abobo. Or the virgin Mary being told by an angel about her upcoming pregnancy with baby Jesus, making this one OlderThanFeudalism.

** An odd case, as they have children called David and Linda in the alternate future first.
** Doesn't have to be that odd. For all we know David was an important name for one of their families. So it would make more sense to name their first born after that than some kid they knew for less than a week 10 years or so earlier.
*** ''Back to the Future'' doesn't work with a stable time-loop. Arguably, they were already supposed to name their third child Marty. He, perhaps, gave them the initial idea in this timeline, causing it to remain his name but he didn't inspire his parent in the original timeline.
*** We find out in Part 3 that Martin is a family name anyway.

** It's much more complicated than that. [[spoiler:Mels]] is a ''[[TheNthDoctor regeneration]]'' of [[spoiler:Melody, who has Time Lord DNA due to being conceived on the TARDIS.]] Which means that [[spoiler:Mels and Melody look nothing alike, and furthermore Mels looks nothing like Amy.]]

* ''Series/TerminatorTheSarahConnorChronicles,'' episode ''Allison from Palmdale'' - Cameron's visage is based on a girl from the future named Allison. Cameron goes back in time and suffers a bit of IdentityAmnesia, making her believe that she actually is Allison. Cameron calls Allison's mom and asks for help, but Allison's mom says that she doesn't have a daughter. At least not yet, because she is pregnant, and Allison's mom says that Allison is a "very pretty name."

* From NeilGaiman's ''ComicBook/TheSandman'', Lyta Hall is told by Morpheus that her son is named Daniel.
** Not really an example, since this didn't involve any sort of time loop.
