* PlayedWith in ''Literature/TheLostYearsOfMerlin''--the title character was named Emrys, but his IdentityAmnesia and his suspicions about his mother meant that he was not very attached to that name. In the first book he has a pet merlin named Trouble that pulls a HeroicSacrifice for him, so he takes "Merlin" on as a new name instead.

* In ''Earth's Defense Family,'' mother Seiko recounts that as a child, she had to return a puppy that she had found to its original owner. Her son Dai suddenly realizes that in Japanese, "dog" is just "Dai" with one added line, and becomes indignant at the implication that he was named that way. (The English dub handles this by saying that the dog's name was "Dino-Chief," with Dai's name being pronounced like the first syllable.)
