* Andrew "Ender" Wiggin from ''EndersGame'', to the point where he can go around inconspicuously as Andrew Wiggin in ''Speaker for the Dead''. (Granted, that is 3,000 years in the future due to relativistic time travel, but still...). People do occasionally recognize his name as being the same as "the Xenocide's" (a banker even accuses him of using a false ID when he sees it), but because it is so far in the future no one makes the connection.
** Also in the later books of the ''EndersGame'' saga many of the characters are from Lusitania, where long Portuguese names are the norm, and just about everyone goes my a nickname. These may be ordinary short forms of their names ("Liberdade Graças a Deus Figueira de Medici" becomes "Libo"), translations ("Estevão Rei Ribeira von Hesse" becomes "Quim," pronounced "king") or unrelated and based off of personal characteristics (Lauro Suleimão Ribeira von Hesse" is called "Olhado" due to his cybernetic eyes.) The full names are usually mentioned once or twice, and then ignored.
** Then there's Julian "Bean" Delphiki, Jr. However, this is justified because he grew up on the streets and didn't have a name. Due to his size and perceived worthlessness, another street urchin told him that he isn't "worth a bean". Given that he's [[spoiler:a result of a genetic experiment, whose "brothers and sisters" were "terminated" by the MadScientist when he was discovered by the authorities]]. At the end of ''Ender's Shadow'', Bean discovers his biological parents and brother ([[spoiler:his best friend from Battle School]]).

* The ''[[Film/MarvelCinematicUniverse MCU]]'' version of Bucky Barnes is only referred to as 'James' about three times throughout the entire franchise. The same exhibition that refers to Steve as 'Steven' calls him Bucky. When [[spoiler: [[Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar an interrogator]]]] calls him James he (somewhat petulantly) informs him that 'my name is ''Bucky.'''. Basically, any time the character appears or is referenced [[spoiler: outside of a HYDRA or generic assassination context]] he will almost certainly be referred to as 'Bucky', 'Barnes' (possibly prefixed by 'Sergeant') or 'Bucky Barnes', and thanks to [[spoiler: seventy years of brainwashing]] it's [[EpilepticTrees entirely possible that]] [LossOfIdentity not even the man himself thinks of Bucky as 'James Buchanan Barnes' at this point.]]

* Kafuka Fura of ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' is using a false name derived from that of Franz Kafka. At one point there's a flashback to Nami's kindergarten class, and one of Nami's classmates, who looks like a younger Kafuka, is identified by the name An. It seems to be implied that Kafuka's real name is An Akagi, the Japanese title for ''AnneOfGreenGables'', in reference to Kafuka's [[ThePollyanna ultra-optimistic personality]]. The name/book title literally means "Red Anne", but is also a pun on "red end" in Engrish, and in both cases, refers to [[KillEmAll what Kafuka is likely to ultimately do to her classmates]].

* In ''Literature/GoneWithTheWind'', Bonnie Blue Butler is really Eugenie Victoria, but everyone calls her Bonnie after the Bonnie Blue Flag because she has blue eyes. Likewise, Aunt Pittypat Hamilton's real name (Sarah Jane) is mentioned once early in the book. Both are extremely easy to miss since the nicknames are used so ubiquitously.
