* ''Series/DoctorWho'' companions in the ExpandedUniverse include Bernice "Benny" Summerfield (Virgin novels), Samantha "Sam" Jones (BBC Books novels), Isabelle "Izzy" Sinclair (DWM comic strip) and Charlotte "Charley" Pollard (Creator/BigFinish audios). This happens quite a bit in the {{Canon}} too, with Ace (real name Dorothy), Josephine "Jo" Grant and Melanie "Mel" Bush.

* In ''Manga/PokemonAdventure'', while "Yellow" (Japanese pronunciation, ''ierou'') is by no means a real name in any language, it sounds very masculine to Japanese ears, as "''ie''" and "''rou''" are both common suffixes to male names. Fittingly, Yellow goes around [[SamusIsAGirl masquerading]] [[{{Bifauxnen}} as a boy]] for the first two arcs she appears in.

* Makoto and Haruka in ''Franchise/SailorMoon'', the latter of whom is actually mistaken for male by much of the cast.
** TheNineties English dub of the [[Anime/SailorMoon first anime]] weirdly averted this by renaming Haruka "Amara," a very feminine name which still leads to her being mistaken for a guy.
** In some supplemental material that preceded the dub, Haruka was called Alex, which made more sense.
