* MummiesAtTheDinnerTable started life as "Last Dance with Mary Jane", then was changed to Norma Bates to to make it clear that it covered more than necrophilia, then was changed again when it was pointed out that "Norma Bates" was misleading to people who were familiar with ''Film/{{Psycho}}'', opaque to people who weren't, and was a spoiler, to boot.

* MulticulturalAlienPlanet used to be "Lots of Planets Have a North". Created around a line from ''Series/DoctorWho'' that wasn't an example for the sake of the reference, this misleading title suggested it was AliensOfLondon i.e. aliens with real life accents rather than, well, a MulticulturalAlienPlanet -- an alien planet with distinct ethnicities, cultures, and traditions. Misuse followed.

Added DiffLines:

* LikeADuckTakesToWater was renamed from "The Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer" and was also merged with "Like A Fish Takes To Water". It was renamed due to the former name's obscurity and lack of clarity.

* NuttySquirrel was originally titled "EverythingsNuttierWithSquirrels", a snowclone of the discredited "Everything's Better With X" family. As with several similarly named tropes, the earlier name encouraged a list of all squirrels regardless of portrayal.

* OstentatiousSecret was once "Meghan Box", after a high-profile secret on ''{{Felicity}}''. The name was changed since without the reference the title was opaque.

Added DiffLines:

* OurGodsAreDifferent used to be "Our Gods Are Greater", which was renamed to fit in with the "Our X Is Different" naming scheme, one of the few succesful snowclones.

Added DiffLines:

* LeadPoliceDetective was formerly "The Inspector". It was renamed as the trope seemed too narrowly defined.

Added DiffLines:

* MustBeInvited was originally "Vampire Invitation". It was renamed to clarify that the trope wasn't specific to vampires but can apply to other supernatural beings.

Added DiffLines:

* NotSoForgottenBirthday used to be "Forgotten Birthday". It was renamed due to confusion, as the trope's about characters finally remembering a birthday, which the old title didn't reflect that.

* NeverLiveItDown was formerly known as "Jean Grey Escalation" -- referring to the fact that Jean Grey's ''one'' ComicbookDeath was blown out of proportion by writers and fans. This same mischaracterization plagued the trope name, with tropers using Jean Grey Escalation as a synonym for DeathIsCheap.

* NoSidepathsNoExplorationNoFreedom was formerly "Pipe Shooter" (which remains as a redirect). The original name was ostensibly a nickname from Finnish media, but was judged too obscure; also, it was intended to invoke images of the early videogame ''VideoGame/{{Tempest}}'', which is technically not an example but rather a RailShooter.
