* [[CrowningMomentOfFunny In one of the funnier parts of]] ''Literature/TheMagiciansNephew'', when the Talking Beasts adopt Uncle Andrew as a pet they name him Brandy [[INeedAFreakingDrink because he makes that noise so often]]. Unusual in that Uncle Andrew was perfectly capable of speech. The animals named him this because they couldn't understand much of the other stuff he was saying--partly because he was [[HeroicBSOD rendered rather incoherent]] by the previous events of the novel, and partly because he shut off his mind from communication.

* In VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV the player encounters an amnesiac Mammet when looking for Gentelman Inspector Hildebrand Manderville. Hildebrand opts to name the Mammet Gigi since that was the word it repeated when it woke up. As a bystander tries to point out that "gigigigi" is a general verbal tic for EVERY Mammet, he gets ignored when Gigi admits he kinda likes the name.
