There's arguably a type three, but I can only think of two examples:

3. In an alternate universe where the character doesn't exist, their parents have a pet of the same name which one of them treats as a surrogate child.

  • In the Doctor Who episode "Age of Steel", "Pete's World" Jackie has a dog called Rose.
  • In the It's a Wonderful Plot episode of Sorry!, Mrs Lumsden in the world where Timothy was never born has a dog called Timothy.

Any other examples?

A variation? In a Harry Potter fanfic they have Hermione visiting her parents (whose memories she wiped) in Australia after the war to find they have a newborn daughter also called Hermione.

I'd like to nominate this page for a rename, or at the very least an alt-title to reflect an earlier use of the trope: Indiana Jones, real name Henry Jones Jr.

genkracken: Seconded. I'll add the redirect. (Who can forget Sean Connery's immortal line, "We named the DOG Indiana!")

Take it to the Trope Repair Shop then. That's where these things are discussed.
