* The {{Badass}} Spaniard's name in the book ''Literature/ThePrincessBride'' is written "Inigo Montoya", thus the preferred spelling in the English-speaking world. A Spaniard will be quick to point out that it should be written "Íñigo" (and in fact, Inigo would be pronounced like ''e-'''nee'''-goh'', while for Íñigo, you stress the Í, and you pronounce the ñ like in... um... [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JGp7Meg42U thñis]]). And ''will'' write it as Íñigo.

** Warren's surname was never seen written down on screen, or included in credits or publicity material. The comic spin-offs have now confirmed it as "Mears", although at least one published shooting script had previously given it as "Meers", and much fanon had it as "Meres" to make it a PunnyName for a character defined by his rage at being a "mere" human.

* One of the first examples may be the Sorcerer from ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'', all due to his name having been only a code-name between animators for decades, and popping up for the first time to the public in ''[[Franchise/KingdomHearts a Japanese video game]]''. Is his real name Yen Sid, or Yensid?

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' has Centipeetle, who's name is commonly misspelled Centipee'''d'''le. In closed captions and official sources, it's the former. Doesn't help that Aivi Tran (one of the main composers) used the latter spelling during her and Surasshu's AMA.
