** ''Justice League'' features John Stewart, the GreenLantern, and J'onn J'onzz, the ComicBook/MartianManhunter. ComicBook/TheFlash sometimes refers to them as "The Two Johns." In addition, ClosedCaptioning for the episodes will sometimes get the names mixed up. Even so, "J'onn" is usually pronounced more like the French "Jean" while Stewart is often referred to as "Lantern" or "G.L.", to mitigate this. Red Tornado is also John Smith. (Though he rarely goes by this name even off duty.)

* Played straight out of necessity in the movie ''The Wrong Guys'', which stars Louie Anderson, Richard Lewis, Richard Belzer, Franklyn Ajaye and Tim Thomerson as life-long friends and ex-Boy Scouts. The rule of TheDanza is in effect for most of their characters, but Ricahrd Belzer's character is called Belz (otherwise we'd have two Richards).

* [=ToyBiz=]'s ''Comicbook/SilverSurfer'' toyline from the 90's renamed changed Comicbook/{{Nova}}'s name to "Super Nova" to differentiate him from Frankie Raye, who was using the Nova name at that time.

* Averted in ''WebAnimation/{{brewstew}}'', where the narrator describes two Zacharys and two Davids that he knows. There's Zachary, the kid everyone hates because he's a snitch, has ADHD, and won't stop TALKING ABOUT MONSTER TRUCKS! And then there's Zachary, the kid across the narrator's street who is not quite like everyone else because he likes ''{{Beetleborgs}}'' rather than ''Franchise/PowerRangers''. The first Zachary has glasses while the other does not. Then, there's David, Tyler's best friend during cub scouts, who got last place in the Pinewood Derby and got sold off into child slavery in Nigeria. And then there's his cousin, David, who created the "Shitmas Tree".

** Twilight Sparkle shares her name with her mother, Twilight Velvet (whom Twilight Sparkle [[StrongFamilyResemblance greatly resembles]]). This is due to them being based on the same characters, the original Twilight from G1, who also has this issue due to other 'Twilight''s existing in G1. Creator/LaurenFaust wanted to make Twilight Sparkle the original Twilight but couldn't due to copyright issues. She ended up using the palette and name of a G3 pony, Twilight Twinkle, as her basis instead. As a MythologyGag, Twilight's mother uses the original Twilight's name. Fans took notice and {{fanon}} pinned Twilight's mother as the original Twilight. This ended up as AscendedFanon. Twilight Velvet's name is never mentioned in the cartoon itself, though. Fans usually refer to her as "Velvet" in fanworks involving both her and her daughter, or call her by her full name when referenced alone.

* In Grimms' Fairy Tales, Snow White from ''Snow White'' (princess pursued by her evil step-mother, helped by seven dwarfs) is not to be confused with Snow White from ''Snow White and Rose Red'' (helps a bear who turns out to be a prince, gets into trouble with an evil dwarf). Note that in the original German this problem does not exist as the former ("Sneewittchen") uses a Low German name, while the latter ("Schneeweißchen und Rosenrot") a High German one.

* ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' suffered from this during the middle of its G1 run. There were two "Twilight"s, two "Sniffles", two "Snookums", three "Sea Breeze"s, and many ponies with the name "Cuddles". The G3 line reused many names from G1, and the G2 line reused certain names too (for example "Prince Firefly" shares the name with the female G1 pegasi "Firefly"). ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' took a few characters in the toy lines and reused their names, though changing the designs for several. The most absurd case is probably all the different Twilight's. There are now approximately ''seven'' different ponies named Twilight, if you count the ones where it's followed by a second word--the two G1 Twilight's, G3's Twilight Twinkle and Twilight Pink, and G4's Twilight Sparkle, Twilight Sky and Twilight Velvet (two of whom are related). When someone on a collector's site asks for artwork of "Twilight" to set as their forum signature, the artist can and will get ''very confused''.

* This trope is the reason for some {{squick}} within the ''WebAnimation/BarbieLifeInTheDreamhouse'' fandom. Midge was reintroduced and she falls for a new character named Ryan. The problem is Midge was previously seen [[Franchise/{{Barbie}} in the toyline]] with a ''son'' named "Ryan". This made some fans grossed out because it seemed like maybe they were [[ParentalIncest the same character]] with Ryan's backstory being revamped, however they're too different in design to be the same.

* Used as a RedHerring in ''Film/FinalDestination3''. In one of the SpookyPhotographs that Wendy took before the roller coaster premonition, she is wearing a McKinley (the name of the town and high school) shirt. Realizing this, she believes that Ian (after [[spoiler:his girlfriend's death and his resulting SanitySlippage]]) will somehow be the cause of her death due to McKinley being his last name, but [[spoiler:he is killed before he gets the chance]].
