* In the ''Literature/{{Spaceforce}}'' series, Jez doesn�t use her �House� name, Aznata (although she did give it when she was presented to the Taysan Empress in the second book). She implies that it�s because she fears attack from the Scree, who massacred most of her people and targeted nobles in particular.

As names are for people in real life, they are an integral part of the identities of fictional characters. They will usually be made up of at least a given name and a last name linking them to one part of their family. Therefore, you can count on any person who wants to disassociate themself from any family member sharing it by doffing the name that links them. In most cases, this family member is the father, due to long-standing traditions involving the woman's adoption of her husband's surname and the bestowal of the father's surname to all of his children. Unlike your standard MeaningfulRename, which is usually part of the story's narrative and its significance derived from the meaning of the new name, this practice is marked by what is renounced: the part of the name linking the person to his or her despised family member.

* Jon Cade, the protagonist from the series ''The Jerusalem Man'' by Creator/DavidGemmell, changed his surname to Shannow to distance himself from his brother Daniel Cade, a notorious criminal.
* Derek Harris from the ''{{AuntDimity}}'' series so despised his father that he changed his name; he was born [[spoiler: Anthony Evelyn Armstrong Seton, Viscount Hailesham]]. The change is also [[MeaningfulRename meaningful]] since he took the name of the estate's carpenter and he prefers to work with his hands, which is is considered unsuitable for a peer's son.

* In "Film/TheForceAwakens", Kylo Ren is revealed to have once been named [[spoiler: Ben Solo]]. That's right, [[spoiler: he's Han and Leia's son, along with Luke's nephew and Anakin/Vader's grandson. Unlike his grandfather, he does not take a Darth name but he is the apparent leader of the 'Knights of Ren' so the concept still stands.]]
