This was up here before, but it seems to have been a casualty of the great crash. If not, then let me know.

The opposite of No Name Given, characters with so many names and/or titles that it's hard to keep track of them.

Examples:
  • Dream (The Sandman) is a prime example of this trope since he "collects names as others collect friends".
  • The Doctor (Doctor Who) is a more unusual version of the trope in that he has about a dozen nicknames/aliases/titles but his real/original name is unknown, possibly even to himself.
