* Used as a running gag in ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' episode "Night of the Blood Beast". In the movie, the characters say the name "Steve" a disproportionate number of times, so Mike and the Bots assume that everyone in the film is named Steve. An example of their riffing:

* There's the planet of Dawn Grays in "Dawn Gray's Pyjamas in Space". Not that many people know about it. Is there even a wikipedia page for it? Is there even a page for it's author?

* In David Gerrold and Larry Niven's novel ''The Flying Sorcerers'', the native women originally did not have names. When the wizard Purple started giving them names, this raised a furor among the men (because having names made the women vulnerable to sorcery), but the women did not want to go back to being nameless. The solution was to give all the women the same name: Missa.

* History and genealogy on the planet [[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Barrayar]] is extra-exciting because in the ruling Vor class, the traditional name for the eldest son is the first name of his paternal grandfather, followed by the first name of his maternal grandfather. The second son gets the middle names of both grandfathers. This is not universal, particularly given that a living grandfather can revoke the patronymic as a form of disowning, and a bad grandfather can be skipped over. Per WordOfGod emperors routinely violate this rule.

** When Peridot first meets Steven, she assumes that Steven is a species name and not a personal moniker, probably building off the above naming system. She even asks him if "Stevens" had replaced humans as Earth's dominant species, meaning she thought Earth literally ''was'' a PlanetOfSteves!

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/WolfHall'' lampshades this in an early scene, where Thomas Cromwell thinks that he won't be remembered by the man who he's just been pointed out to because "half the world" is named Thomas--an appropriate remark when the inquiring man is Thomas Boleyn speaking to Cromwell's boss, Thomas Wolsey. There's also his adversary Thomas Howard the Duke of Norfolk and his friend Archbishop Thomas Cramner. Later he's relieved to learn that Elizabeth Seymour goes by Bess so he won't be conflating her with his late wife Elizabeth (who was called Liz).
