* In ''Series/ThatSeventiesShow'', we have Fez, whose entire name took the entirity of a school bell to pronounce, and of which we only know the group said they would never remember. This leads to Foreign Exchange Student being his name as an anagram, changed to a z for sound. Fun fact, when he was stating his name that we never hear during the bell, and you only see his mouth moving, his only reciting the casts name.

* Princess Kidagakash from ''WesternAnimation/AtlantisTheLostEmpire''. Unable to pronounce her name, Milo asks if she has a nickname. It's Kida. (The man is a linguist, and can't handle four syllables?)
** Hey--give him some credit, after all, they do fit a [[FreudianSlip specific]] [[UglyGuyHotWife couple of]] [[{{Adorkable}} tropes]]... Why are we surprised that he's getting flustered talking to a pretty girl?

* Ren and Miu in ''DearS'' are called Ren and Miu because those are fragments of their [[OverlyLongName absurdly long full names]]. Interestingly, "Ren" means "nothing" in the [=DearS=] language, which confuses and angers Miu. Takeya gave Ren her name because it's the first number of her [[YouAreNumberSix ID number]]; this ends up being a plot point. Whereas Ren uses the first part of her ID number as her name, Miu uses the last part.
* In ''PsychicAcademy'', psychics are called by the names of their [[BattleAura psychic eminences]]. The average eminence name is four words long. Thus they're generally referred to by the first word in the name. The main character's brother has a ''six-word'' name - which gets shortened to [[MyHeroZero Zero]] ("Zerodyme" is the first word).
* Z's introduction in ''TenchiMuyo''. It's something along the lines of "Me? I'm Z-0001332536893. [[LampshadeHanging But that's too long]], so just call me 'Z.'"
* In the anime version of ''{{Trigun}}'', Vash The Stampede's full name may or may not be "Valentinez Alkalinella Xifax Sicidabohertz Gumigobilla Blue Stradivari Talentrent Pierre Andre Charton-Haymoss Ivanovicci Baldeus George Doitzel Kaiser III".

-->'''Tka Rik (Tka-Lithan Richti-Nik):''' My name would sound to you like Tka-a-Litan Rich-ty-a-Nik. An impatient person like you would probably find it somewhat long, so you may call me simply Tka-Rik.
