* In the old MTV cartoon ''TheHead'', a young man wakes up one day to find that his head is grossly enlarged. Turns out a mostly-benevolent alien purple goblin is hiding inside and can pop out at will. The goblin introduces himself like this: "My name is [string of odd noises], but you can call me Roy.".

* The ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'' sprite webcomic ''Webcomic/PlanetZebeth'' has the hilarious Trabnagian tribe, the members of which all have ridiculously long names. The first one to appear introduces himself shortly as Syracuse, and his real name is Syracuse von Alfredo Jacobson Smith de Sanguine Jones the eighth of the Trabnagian tribe. And that's shorter than average.

** In "Oceans Unmoving", TheGrays stranded in Timeless Space go by human-sounding names like "Face" and "Murdock". It's later revealed Face's unpronounceable real name is "Steeeeeeve". In contrast, when Murdock pronounces his actual name, it's so alien as to cause the record being made of him to break down for a moment.

* 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?
