  • In Tales From The Afternow, everyone's name has their company, job title, IP address range, given and family names, and number of life extensions (i.e., how many times their life has been extended by artificial means, including - but not limited to - cloning, cybernetic augmentation, and genetic manipulation). The end result is names like "Independent Librarian Dynamic Sean Kennedy the Sixth".

  • The Cologne-based band L.S.E. made a song titled "Kopfe sneide" which is about the famous Spanish matador José Maria Manuel Fango Paco Carrera de Cadentes. He admits himself that his name is too long and that that's the reason why the ladies call him El Condomes instead.
  • Brazilian band Jorge Cabeleira e o Dia Que Seremos Todos Inúteis (Hairy Jorge and the Day We Will All Be Useless).
  • Due to legal reasons, the mid 80's reformation of Yes could not use the name, so instead named the group after themselves. "Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe" was the result, and even the members of ABWH themselves admitted it sounded more like an accounting firm than a rock band.
