* Franchise/DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse:
** In the Literature/PastDoctorAdventures novel ''World Game'', Lady Serena's full name is Lady Serenadellatrovella.
** ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoNewAdventuresLungbarrow Lungbarrow]]'' had Quencessetianobayolocaturgrathadeyyilungbarrowmas, the 422nd Kithriarch of the House of Lungbarrow. The other Time Lords call him Quences. Also, Leela's given Time Lord name is Lady Leelandredloomsagwinaechegesmia.




* ''Series/DoctorWho'' had a character whose full name was "Romanadvoratrelundar". The Doctor told her she could either shorten it to "Romana" or else he would just call her "Fred". He then went on to call her "Romana", even though she said she would prefer "Fred". At an earlier stage in the script's development, he was going to shorten it even further to "Romy."

* In ''VideoGame/DarkenedSkye'', the female Tikniki befriended by Skye and Draak has a overly long and nigh-unpronounceable name (at least Draak didn't have trouble pronouncing it) ending with the syllables "nee-noo", such that Draak remarks: "What's say we call her 'Neenu' ".

* A variation occurs in ''Series/StargateAtlantis''. The Wraiths are all NoNameGiven to humans, so Sheppard has taken to naming individual wraiths with common mortal names. So far we've had Bob, Steve, Michael, Todd, and Kenny. [=McKay=] wants to pick the name of the next Wraith.

* Princess Kidagakash from ''WesternAnimation/AtlantisTheLostEmpire''. Milo stumbles on pronouncing it (although probably because [[DistractedByTheSexy distracted]]; he is a linguist), and she says he can call her Kida.

* In Creator/AAPessimal's ''Fanfic/TheManyWorldsInterpretation'', Assassin Ruth N'Kweze, who is a proud Princess in [[DarkestAfrica Howondaland]], explains the thing about names and lineages to a group of visitors from Earth:
-->"Formally." Ruth said. "But naming conventions are tricky. My full name goes something like ''Igama Sibongo {{Isithakazelo}} Ubuzwe Inkosazana umNtwana Umntanenkosi Ruth Sisiwayo N'Kweze''. And that's just a short version. If you take the ''Isithakazelo'' part, that's a one-word shorthand for my family lineage, great deeds and accomplishments of my illustrious ancestors - and maybe even one or two of my own. And so on and so on. It runs on for about three pages when it's all written down.(4) So it got shortened to Miss Ruth N'Kweze for convenience."
