* In the early 20th century it was common among American Catholics of various ethnicities to baptize all male babies "Joseph _______" with the intention they would always go by their middle name. When they got into the Army, a lot of them became "Joe", and in WW2 Joe was so commonplace it became a generic nickname for American soldiers, which is why there is GIJoe.

* [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in ''Webcomic/GoneWithTheBlastwave''. While most characters aren't even ''given'' names (even the protagonists are only known as "Pyro" and "Crosshairs"), there's a distinct pattern in the one-off minor characters:
-->'''Crosshairs:''' Why is almost everyone we meet named Steve?

* An ''ComicBook/XMen'' example; Kitty Pryde's two most notable love interests were Peter Rasputin and Pete Wisdom, resulting in a great deal of ShipToShipCombat among the more fervent fans. Further muddying the issue is the fact that in UltimateMarvel, she was dating [[SpiderMan Peter Parker]] for a time (the Ultimate versions of Rasputin and Wisdom being gay and The Leader, respectively).

[[folder:Web Original]]
* The ''WebAnimation/WeeblAndBob'' flash vid "Dan" features an alien race that uses the name "Dan De Zille" (the name of their ruler) for everything on their planet. Like many Planet of Steves examples, they don't find this at all confusing.
* In ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale'' all of the angels are named Erika. No, not Erica- ''Erika''. With a 'K'.
* LetsPlay/ManyATrueNerd's "Kill Everything" LetsPlay of ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' makes frequent use of this trope whenever a nameless mook is stealth-killed in front of someone who should probably be alarmed.
* In Somewhere Else, everyone is [[http://www.sir-toby.com/extend-a-story/story-1/code/read.php?episode=87121 Someone Else]]. Doing something else, of course.
