* In ''Literature/EarthseaTrilogy'', knowing the {{True Name}}s of things is important for spellcasting, so things without names -- such as the Nameless Ones, the dark gods of the Kargs in ''Literature/TheTombsOfAtuan'' -- are super-bad juju magumbo.

* Among some ProfessionalWrestling fans, ChrisBenoit is sometimes referred to as He Who Is Not Named, both in mimicry of Harry Potter and the fact that many would rather pretend [[FanonDiscontinuity he never existed.]]

* Nothing about [[Series/DoctorWho The Doctor]]?
** [[Series/DoctorWho The Master]].
*** Or [[Series/DoctorWho The Rani]] (not to be confused with the ''other'' [[Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures Rani]]), or [[Series/DoctorWho The Corsair]]. Seems to be a popular theme with Time Lords who've left Gallifrey for whatever reason.
** Or the other [[Series/StarTrekVoyager The Doctor]].
** Or the other the Doctor (from John Barth's ''The End of the Road''). Since this Doctor (a trickster-figure) is human, he presumably has a name, but he doesn't reveal it to his patients.
** In "The Time of the Doctor" it is revealed that if the Doctor spoke his true name the Time Lords would return, causing another Time War. The arc throughout the Eleventh Doctor's tenure were caused by an attempt to prevent this, though this is only revealed in his finale.
** The Franchise/DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse has the "Other", the other member of the triumvirate who founded Time Lord Society which included Rassilon and Omega. It is implied the Doctor is the reincarnation of the Other.

Added DiffLines:

* The Doctor from ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' is only ever referred to as such. Justified as he was originally created to be an emergency-only medical program, and he just kept that as his name as he became an actual person.
