* ''Series/Supernatural'' has a case of this with the angel Castiel. The fandom overwhelmingly spells his nickname as 'Cas' with one 's' while both scripts and a story being written about the character in-universe have it with two.

* The Japanese wrestler Ebetaroh...or is it Ebessan? Kikutaro? Promotions will often switch between these and other variations every time he makes an appearance, sometimes as part of a RunningGag.

* This was one of the tropes that led to the downfall of Dragon Door Project. There were a dozen derivatives of the [[Wrestling/SatoruSayama Tiger Mask]] and Wrestling/UltimoDragon gimmicks, including a guy going by T''y''ger Mask, who would later became Xtreme/Extreme Tiger.

* There are multiple possible ways to spell the surnames of the [[Series/DoctorWho Second Doctor's]] companions Jamie and Zoe (the credits only show their first names). Jamie's surname has largely stabilised as "[=McCrimmon=]", but Zoe's has swung back and forth between "Heriot" and "Herriot" over the years. The BBC's own ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode guide uses [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/classic/episodeguide/companions/page12.shtml both]] [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/classic/episodeguide/wheelinspace/detail.shtml spellings]] on different pages.

* There ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** The beelike species from "The Web Planet" has been spelled in official materials as "Menoptera" (most common) and "Menoptra" (what was used in the script).
** The giant flamethrower-wielding robots from "The Chase" have been spelled as both Mech'''a'''noids and Mech'''o'''noids in BBC material. This is partially because they were originally named Mechons (pronounced 'meekon') in the script, but the name and pronunciation was changed due to phonetic similarity to [[ComicStrip/DanDare The Mekon]], leaving the real spelling ambiguous.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfAnElderGod'', the authors often misspelled Asuka's surname, writing “Langely” instead of “Langley”. It's lampshaded in chapter 21: Shinji's spiders spun a heart-shaped web with Asuka's name written on it. Asuka says it's very sweet... but her name is misspelled.
-->"Except it's 'Langley' not 'Langely', Shinji-kun," Asuka said, pointing.

* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' has Castiel's nickname officially written as "Cass", however, fans prefer to spell it as "Cas". Makes sense, since his name only has one s.


Added DiffLines:

* Joan's original last name in ''Series/{{Elementary}}''. She's "Joan Watson" due to her mother remarrying when she was a child. Closed captioning has spelled the surname as both "Yun" and "Wen". "Yeun" has also been used as a way of spelling it.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheBelgariad'' has an in-universe example. Dryad names always begin with an X, but the names of the two dryads Ce'Nedra and Ce'Vanne don't. It's later explained as a quirk of the Tolnedran dialect, which turns the hard "kse" into a soft "se" in both cases, and the names should rightly be Xe'Nedra and Xe'Vanne.

* Played with with [[Creator/AuroVee Undermon]], where Toriel is actually spelt Tori''a''l. Which, considering the Aura which she has due to the history of the fic, hints at which Legendary she has the Aura of.
