* In the ''HarryPotter'' FilkSong "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z82HH11IFEY What Kind of Name is Hermione?]]" the singers go through more than a dozen names for "that other red-haired boy" in [[TheHero Harry]] and [[TheSmartGuy Hermione]]'s group. Eventually a third voice (possibly Hermione herself) yells "''IT'S [[ClassicalAntiHero RON]]!,''" prompting them to get back to the actual song.

-->'''L''': Near... It stands for Near, Light. Remember it. I'm glad that you're showing an interest though, for I never expected any less of you. However, I am most insulted on his behalf that you think that he could be named after [[WesternAnimation/FindingNemo a lost fish]] or KeanuReeves.

* In ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'', "An Appeal on Behalf of the National Truss" has a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} presenter who immediately derails whatever subject she was supposed to talk about by repeatedly getting her own name wrong. Not only do her confused guesses include a wide range of celebrity names, but some of them clearly aren't names at all.

->''When suddenly a guy behind me in the back seat popped right up and cupped his hands across my eyes''
->''I guessed, "Is it Uncle Frank or Cousin Louie? Is it Bob or Joe or Walter? Could it be Bill or Jim or Ed or Bernie or Steve?"''
->''I probably would have kept on guessing but about that time we crashed into the truck.''

* Played with in TheMovie of ''TheImportanceOfBeingEarnest'': Jack calls out for Algy, but Algy is currently pretending to be Ernest. Jack is very miffed that he must call out "Ernest" in order to get a response.
* Played with in ''BeingJohnMalkovich''. John Cusack's nerdy puppeteer Craig tries to pick up an attractive woman by guessing her name within three guesses. He then proceeds to engage in RapidFireNameGuessing by mouthing the first few sounds in many female names, using the woman's reaction to home in on the right name. He "guesses" tons of names (via eliminating anything that doesn't have the right sounds) before managing to stammer out "Mar....Mah....x....Maxine?!" She reacts by being surprised and dubious, but agrees to meet him in a bar.

* In the ''FatherTed'' Christmas special, Ted gets Mrs Doyle to try and guess the name of their new house guest. She spends several ''hours'' guessing before hitting on the right name. The reason? Ted ''doesn't'' know who the mysterious but over-friendly guest is, and is too embarrassed to admit it.
