* In ''FanFic/AgesOfShadow'', [[Anime/YuGiOh Pegasus]] {{expy}} Brenner names his card game after Yade Khan, the [[AGodAmI god persona]] taken up by [[FallenHero Jade Chan]]. As Kaiba expy Alonso Gragas notes, this can be a bit confusing for anyone in the know about the true nature of the game. [[spoiler: It's also [[ChekhovsGun plot significant]] -- during the FinalBattle, Jade reveals that she built a loophole into the game's rules (namely, that "[[ExactWords the will of Yade Khan]]" decides the winner) enabling her to decide the outcome of a match any time she wants.]]

* Played with in the baseball movie ''Film/MajorLeague: Back to the Minors''. Finding that he has two Juan's on his team, the manager denotes them Juan1 and Juan2. A pitcher with a psychology degree comments about it possibly giving them issues. The manager asks if he'd like to be Juan3.

** The Terminator kills two other women named Sarah Connor before targeting the future mother of John Connor. He had no idea what Sarah Connor looks like or exactly which one he's after, but does know what town Sarah will be living in, so he just goes through the phonebook and ices each one on the list. The police quickly figure out his pattern because of this.

* Sister Bridget cruelly enforces this in ''The Magdalene Sisters''. When Rose introduces herself she says they already have a Rose and has everyone call her by her middle name Patricia. Crispina's real name is Harriett so we could assume there was another Harriett in the laundry as well.

* Averted on ''Film/IfLooksCouldKill'': the protagonist is a Detroit high schooler named Michael Corben, and there is an American super spy named Michael Corben. This confusion (made stronger because of the murder of Corben the spy before he can get on the same flight to Europe that Corben the teen was taking) creates the whole MistakenForBadass situation that composes the plot (and when someone points out at one point that Corben is too young, the others assume that he's a TeenSuperspy or an example of OlderThanTheyLook).

* Speaking of which, [[{{Music/TheMonkees}} The Monkees]] included Micky Dolenz (George Michael Dolenz) and Mike Nesmith (Robert Michael Nesmith), though ironically, both go by their middle name.
* Sheena Easton's song "9 to 5" was renamed "Morning Train (9 to 5)" to avoid confusion with [[{{Music/DollyParton}} Dolly Parton]]'s song "9 to 5."

** Zeus has two sons named Sarpedon, one is the son of Europa and brother to Minos and Rhadamanthys and the other is the son of Laomedia and a hero in the Trojan War.

** The titaness Tethys and Achille's mother Thetis are often confused (the latter is also the granddaughter of the first).

** Twilight Sparkle shares her name with her mother, Twilight Velvet (who 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 moter 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.

** Similarly, the series also features '''Larry''' Butz and '''Lawrence''' Curls, '''Robert''' Hammond and '''Bobby''' Fulbright, '''Zak''' Gramarye and '''Zacharias''' Barnham, and '''Simon''' Keyes and '''Simon''' Blackquill, though none of these sets of characters appear in the same game.

* Since the WhateleyUniverse has such a massive number of named characters, it's not surprising that there are lots of names occurring more than once. Like Elaine: Elaine Nalley and Elaine Fleischer are both gorgeous mutants with the MostCommonSuperpower, and they're both inventors. When they both went on Phase's birthday trip to Boston, Elaine Nalley went by 'Doc' to avoid confusion among the other guests. On the other hand, the school does enforce rules about distinct codenames for everyone.

* Averted in ''Film/SavingPrivateRyan'', the squad finds Private James Ryan and prepare to bring him home, telling him his brothers have been killed. The private then starts bawling and asks how his brothers died, but then mentions they're still in grade-school, prompting the squad to realize they'd run into James ''Frederick'' Ryan from Minnesota. Later on, on finding the right Private Ryan, Captain Miller makes sure to confirm he's actually James ''Francis'' Ryan from Iowa.
