* Presumably the HeadlessHorseman from ''Literature/TheLegendOfSleepyHollow'' had a name, but no one calls him by it. Indeed, as he can't speak and has no face to recognize, it's doubtful anyone ''could'' call this ghostly figure by his name, even if they'd known him in life [[spoiler: and he wasn't a hoax]].

* In the WhateleyUniverse there was a thing known across galaxies as The Scourge, or The Stalker Among The Stars, or other encouraging names. It has since merged with a human, so it now has a name.

*** Eru Iluvatar (God) takes this a step further; not only is he never referred to by name, he is never explicitly referred to ''at all'', even by a title or other name; instead it appears only allowed (or respectful) to imply his existence and actions.

* ''FanFic/KyonBigDamnHero'' plays this trope with "Haruhi's favorite website", as the fic usually refers to it with a that phrase or a variation of that. But, as the fic tells it's that website is a wiki and it inspired the JustForFun/TropeTan anime, it also doesn't try to hide [[TvTropes which website it is]].
