** The surname "Simpson", despite being fairly common in real life, probably has this effect on non-anglophone countries, where it's pretty much associated with the cartoon family. This might be the case in the U.S. as well, with ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' [[LampshadeHanging hanging a lampshade]] in an episode featuring controversial American Footballer O.J. Simpson.

* After the release and acclaim of ''Videogame/TheLastOfUs'', you probably won't be seeing another video game character named "Ellie" anytime soon. The other characters (including the actual protagonist, Joel) likely avert this since they have incredibly common (and bland) names. The only other famous Ellie anywhere in pop culture is Music/EllieGoulding. Fans of ''Series/TheBeverlyHillbillies'' might be reminded of Elly Mae Clampett, though.

* You'll never find another Tyson in Boxing, regardless if it's name or surname (even the simple "Mike" is risky). Even a similar sounding name is off-limits as Balrog of ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' can attest to (originally known as "Mike Bison", he had his name [[DubNameChange swapped around with two other characters']] [the third name in the wheel being "Vega"] exactly to prevent potential legal troubles with Tyson).

* Wrestling/ShinsukeNakamura has OML'd both of his names, at least in non-Japanese markets.

* Wrestling/ShinsukeNakamura has OML'd both of his names, at least in non-Japanese markets.markets (especially "Shinsuke" since the name "Nakamura" occasionally pops up in American fiction, but the name "Shinsuke" was probably unheard of before the King of Strong Style became notable).



* This trope actually seems to be the norm rather than the exception when it comes to women in wrestling. Whenever a female wrestler, manager, valet, etc. gains even a shred of national attention, their names end up becoming exclusive to them and aren't typically used by anyone else in the industry, present or future.

It doesn't help that women tend to take on more distinctive sounding names than males do (at least when it comes to actual names rather than monikers) and since WWE tend to make most of their acquired talents change their ring names to a WWE given one (with a few exceptions) it's almost like they're trying to enforce it. For example, there are dozens of Ricks, Scotts and Johns in wrestling but significantly fewer [[Wrestling/MariaKanellis Marias]], [[Wrestling/MichelleMcCool Michelles]] and [[Wrestling/BethPhoenix Beths]].

*** A case of this trope's occasional effects in RealLife was shown when Nintendo of America hired former [[Creator/ElectronicArts EA]] employee Doug Bowser, which caused jokes to pop up up left and right among fans and the company alike because of that surname. His Twitter handle, for example, is @thetruebowser.

* Often, the leads of ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' and ''Manga/TokyoMewMew'' are differentiated by the names "Shounen Ichigo" and "Shoujo Ichigo". While the latter eventually stepped away from this thanks to the FleetingDemographicRule (once kids forgot about Momomiya, we got [[Manga/YumeiroPatissiere Amano]], and once kids forgot about ''her'', [[VideoGame/{{Aikatsu}} Hoshimiya]]), there's still only one girly Ichigo at a time, and Kurosaki ''still'' holds down the boys' fort by himself.

* [[Wrestling/{{Charlotte}} Charlotte Flair]], Wrestling/BeckyLynch, and Wrestling/SashaBanks have ensured that there will never be any more "Charlottes", "Beckys" or "Sashas" around anytime soon. "Flair" is shared with Charlotte's daddy. "Lynch" is probably OML'd too. "Banks" is too common for anyone to take ownership of, though it'll likely be reserved for male wrestlers. "Bailey" is an acceptable name to use (although not as a mononym), but not the rare spelling "Wrestling/{{Bayley}}".

** It's probably going to be a very long time before we see any characters named "Celestia" again (Luna strangely enough is perfectly okay, as it is probably the closest thing we have to a common name in this entry).

** It's probably going to be a very long time before we see any characters named "Celestia" again (Luna strangely enough is perfectly okay, as it is probably the closest thing we have to a common name in this entry). This may have been averted 5 years after ''Friendship Is Magic'''s debut with the anime ''Anime/ReCreators'', in which a main character ''might'' have a given name of "Celestia," or not, considering there are at least [[SpellMyNameWithAnS five different ways to spell her name]] and the most popular translations avoid that spelling.

* Princess Jasmine is a downplayed example. She's easily the most famous fictional character named "Jasmine", but the name is common enough in RealLife that other characters can probably get away with using it without people instantly thinking of Mrs. Aladdin.

** Wiki/TheOtherWiki lists [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Let_It_Go 44 songs and 10 albums named "Let It Go."]] Even though world-famous musicians like Music/{{Prince}} and Nick Carter have made songs called "Let It Go," odds are the first song that pops into your head with that name is the song from ''Frozen''. James Bay had a hit called "Let It Go" about a year after the ''Frozen'' song; but even then it [[NeverLiveItDown had a hard time living down the fact]] that it shared its name with the song.

* There are several Eddies in the industry, but the name will always be first and foremost associated with Wrestling/EddieGuerrero. Likewise, "Guerrero" is exclusively tied to his family, though similarly-named "Juventud Guerrer''a'' got a pass.
