My $0.02 on Real Life usage: While the media (and the Law) have an obligation to "get it right", the general public has no such obligation. When either the names are too common, too close, or too rare, we (as public) need to give them other names either to distinguish them or just to give them a name. This will probably prove more true in the age of Twitter and Facebook.

"Oddly enough, in the comics, Ra's al Ghul is essentially the character's real name (it's complicated) but in the movie his real name is Henri Ducard. "= This is just plain wrong, Ducard is the alias not Ra's.

From the brand new Trailer it looks like we can already confirm Man of Steel playing with this.

Is it allright to add Fan Works examples? I love how The Joker Blogs plays with this Trope.

I'm not sure that the main reason these names don't show up in these movies is that the names sound silly. I would say it's more that it seems silly for someone to take on an appellation personally unless they want to have a public image, which a lot of villains (who are in it for personal gain) do not want.

I'm sorry. You lost me. What's the objection again?
