** When Bruce Jenner came out as [[UsefulNotes/{{Transgender}} a trans-woman]], she changed her name to Caitlyn. Some have theorised that her decision to spell the name with a C instead of a K is a deliberate TakeThat towards her family's naming habits thus far.

* ThePowerpuffGirls names all begin with B, even those of one shot "guest" powerpuffs (Bullet, Bunny).
