** They considered doing this with Bluestar's mother in ''Bluestar's Prophecy''. She was mentioned with the name Moonflower in ''Secrets of the Clans'', but that was considered to be something of a mistake because the moon is significant to the Clans and they really wouldn't name a kit after it (it was a new author that had written said book). When working on ''Bluestar's Prophecy'' they intended to rename her Duskflower, even answering an "ask Erin" question on warriorcats.com using that name, but in the final book she appeared with her original name, Moonflower. Vicky later explained that at the time she answered it they were planning on changing the name, but they ultimately decided to keep the original name since it had already appeared in the books, and just have the "moon" name be a one-off thing.

* Occurs frequently in the English version of ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' thanks to being an InconsistentDub (and further hurt by SpellMyNameWithAnS {{Engrish}}); monsters often change from their dub name to their original Japanese name or vice-versa between installments. One of the better-known examples was a knight Digimon who was "Crusadermon" in ''Digimon Frontier'' and "[=LoadKnightmon=]" in ''Digimon Data Squad'', which doesn't even make sense (better translations of it from Japanese would be "[=LordKnightmon=]" or "[=RhodoKnightmon=]"). Justified since each installment is its own universe and own continuity, but it's still jarring.
