* Rory Gilmore's full name on ''Series/GilmoreGirls'' is Lorelai Leigh Gilmore. Her mother named her after herself and she babbles in the pilot to a cute boy:
-->'''Rory''': It's my mother's name, too. She named me after herself. She was lying in the hospital thinking about how men name boys after themselves all the time, you know, so why couldn't women? She says her feminism just kind of took over. Though personally I think a lot of Demerol also went into that decision.

His real name is Filippo, but pretty much the entire series he is only known by his nickname Bu-Bum, which was given to him by his five animal companions since they don't know his real name and Bu-Bum is unable to tell them due to having become TheSpeechless.

* Several of the hunters in ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'', for various reasons.
** Hyde's real name was classified when he enlisted as a Chemtrooper, though WordOfGod has revealed that it's [[spoiler: Eugene Walters]].
** Đorđe Živković just goes by Lazarus. His specific motives are unexplained, but it's likely out of professional pride as the last Lazarus Man.
** The pilot of the ship and resident robot is named 1Z27FHV047FBPQ40-a. Since no one wants to bother saying that he's gone by one nickname or another since his activation. Currently he calls himself Bucket but he used to be RR-40a.
** [[ShellShockedVeteran Slim]] himself doesn't know his own name due to repressing his memories, but a line of dialogue points to it being [[spoiler: Alex]].

* ''Series/GeneralHospital'': Lucas Lorenzo "Lucky" Spencer, Jr. Mainly to differentiate him from his more famous father, the male half of the [[UrExample original]] SuperCouple. His father himself is only known as "Luke". His nephew Lucas, also named after him, is the only one of the three to avert this. Luke also slightly inverts this, being the only one in town to call the women in his life by their real names rather than the nicknames everyone else uses--sister Bobbie ("Barbara"), niece Carly ("Caroline"), friend Alexis ("Natasha"), and daughter Lulu ("Lesley Lu")--and was the only person on the show to do so.
