* In ''Comicbook/YoungJustice,'' ComicBook/{{Robin}} (Tim Drake) is supposed to keep his face and identity secret from the team to help preserve Batman's security. The first time that a mission requires him to take off his mask, he tells the others that they can call him "Alvin Draper." ComicBook/{{Superboy}} immediately calls him out on it.

* In one ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' episode, one of Meg's friends refers to her as Megan, when she asks why she called her that, the other girl as if that's her whole name. A cutaway gag shows that after giving birth to to her, Lois asks Peter to give the nurse Meg's birth certificate. Before doing so, Peter quickly alters the certificate, and instead of Megan it then read [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} Megatron.]]

* ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'': The very female Doctor Edward Bunnigus is a DesignerBaby grown in a UterineReplicator because her parents [[GeniusBreedingAct were considered too stupid to be allowed to reproduce naturally]]. She was designed with the "exotic dancer" package, and on her medical wristband this was shortened to "ED." Her parents assumed this was supposed to be her name, but decided it wasn't pretty enough, so went with "Edward." She normally just goes by Bunny.

And an old woman named Miss Female Infant Robinson, whose mother saw the midwife note the delivery of "female infant" and assumed that was the child's name.

* In ''Webcomic/SomethingPositive'', geeky parents Mike and Tamara name their son {{Shazam}} [[Creator/WilWheaton Wil-Wheaton]] [[MultiEthnicName Dowden-Patel]] (the hyphens are the source of his power). The two do have a fight at one point, though, because Mike thought his middle name was going to be "[[Creator/JossWhedon Joss-Whedon]]" instead. He also mentions that little Shaz would have been "[[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy]] [[Series/{{Firefly}} Serenity]]" had he been a girl.

* In ''[[Literature/TalesOfTheFiveHundredKingdoms The Sleeping Beauty]]'' by Creator/MercedesLackey, Prince Siegfried starts to suspect that Queen Sable is not the WickedStepmother she seems to be because he can't believe that some parent gave their daughter such a blatant [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Name to Run Away From Really Fast]].

* Texas Governor Jim Hogg infamously named his daughter [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ima_Hogg#Name Ima]]. This spawned a lot of public jokes (the most famous being that she had a sister named Ura) and she never lived it down. In fairness her father claimed she was named after a character in a poem and that he wasn't consciously aware of how it sounded, though a lot of the more cynical Texans didn't believe him. TheOtherWiki's [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ima_Hogg article on Ima Hogg]] tells us that her grandfather heard of her name, saw the obvious problem, and rushed in vain to stop the christening. Despite her embarrassing name, she became one of the most respected ladies of Texas, a famous philanthropist and patron of the arts, "The First Lady of Texas".
