It was first used to describe blends of words by Creator/LewisCarroll in ''[[Literature/AliceInWonderland Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There]]'', when Humpty Dumpty explains to Alice the word "slithy" from the poem "Literature/{{Jabberwocky}}":

* Wrestling/{{Edge}} and Wrestling/{{Christian}} were infamous for doing this sort of thing. The best example was ramipercussions, a combination of ramifications and repercussions. Also, due to the TripleH-led [[Wrestling/TheCorporation Corporation]] / DGenerationX alliance being alternately called the "[=McMahon-Helmsley=] Faction" and the "[=McMahon-Helmsley=] Regime", they called it the "Fac-gime" and "Fregime".
* Some tag team names are Portmanteaus, such as [[LayCool [=LayCool=]]], comprised of Layla and Michelle [=McCool=].

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' has (in-universe) ALMSIVI, for Almalexia, Sotha Sil, Vivec (the three gods of Morrowind's Tribunal). [[spoiler: By the end of the game and expansions, two of the gods are certainly dead, and one goes missing not so long afterwards (to leave it ambiguous if he was killed or not), so the term has fallen out of favour by the time we get a closer look at Dunmeri culture again.]]
