* In the original cut of ''Literature/TheDarkTower Book One: The Gunslinger'', Roland has no last name given (later revised editions would add it), and in fact is only referred to as the Gunslinger through most of the book. His full name doesn't originally appear until the third book.

* Raymond Joseph Teller from Creator/PennAndTeller legally changed his name to Teller.

to:

* Raymond Joseph Teller from Creator/PennAndTeller legally changed his name to Teller. This has caused him some trouble with computerized systems that expect a full name, so for those purposes, he uses NFN (No Fucking Name) as a stand-in for a first name. Even his social security card reads "Unknown U. Teller".

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/ProjectTau'': Tau, and later Kata.

Added DiffLines:

* Foxy, Fay and May from ''VideoGame/HarvestTown'' have no surnames, unlike the other [=NPCs=] in the game. Foxy is a justified example, since she's a fox-spirit, but there is no real explanation why Fay and May only goes by their first names when everyone else have surnames.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WebComic/YokokasQuest'', most characters have only ever used one name (Grace's bio being the exception), though a few have titles such as "of Eridanus" or "the Reaper".


* ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'' has a ton of people who are prime examples. Pete, Sara, Rachel, Sanjay, Rod, Nami, Chelsea, Georgia... The list goes on. Most characters have only given names, even the doctors and mayors.

* Wrestling/{{WWE}} has a strange habit of giving a large number of their Divas only one name. While wrestlers going by only one name have always been pretty common (even now, there's Wrestling/{{Fandango}} and Wrestling/{{Ryback}},) they, at least, are distinct titles, whereas the Only One Name Divas are usually rather generic first names, such as Wrestling/{{Maryse}}, Wrestling/{{Layla}}, Maria, Wrestling/{{Melina}}, Maxine, Wrestling/{{Natalya|Neidhart}}, [[Wrestling/TenilleDashwood Emma]], and Wrestling/{{Paige}}. Also noticeable is that the WWE fanbase has actively revolted against this, often using a CanonName, such as names they used in developmental, to the extent that WWE has actually started using them again, as has happened with Cameron Lynn, Wrestling/CharlotteFlair, Wrestling/{{Naomi}} Knight (or not), and Wrestling/AJLee. (In Charlotte's case, she started out using only "Charlotte", despite being acknowledged on-screen as Wrestling/{{Ric|Flair}}'s real-life daughter.) There's a variant where a Diva will only have a first name, but one that's in two parts, such as Summer Rae and Eva Marie.
* Even male wrestlers have a tendency to have their names shortened down further and further. In recent years, [[Wrestling/BigELangston Big E]] (Langston,) (Antonio) [[Wrestling/ClaudioCastagnoli Cesaro,]] and (Alexander) [[Wrestling/AlexanderRusev Rusev]] have all had chunks of their names lopped off after debuting, with the prevailing theory being that smaller names are easier to work with from a marketing standpoint (easier to format onto merchandise, etc.)

** Even today, the Japanese imperial family have no surname, a tradition that is upheld since its creation. In Japan, calling emperors (and other royalty figures, but mostly the emperors) by their given name is considered disrespectful, so Akihito (the current emperor) is simply called "His Imperial Majesty the Emperor"; and Hirohito is called Emperor Shōwa, after the era he reigned. Once Akihito abdicates on 30 April 2019 in favor of his son Naruhito, the latter will become "His Imperial Majesty", and Akihito will become ''Jōkō'' ("Retired Emperor") until his death, and then become Emperor Heisei. Royal women who marry a commoner (which, post 1945, is everyone but their family) take her husband's surname, but they also lose their royal status, since the common men cannot marry into the imperial family.
** Incidentally, this late adoption is also the reason why Japanese surnames are so much numerous and varied than Chinese and Korean surnames. Surnames in China and Korea have had two millennia to go through, during which they outnumbered each other or became extinct when they had no male heirs to inherit them (a phenomenon called [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galton–Watson_process the Galton–Watson process]]), not to mention adopting them at a time when the population were much smaller (this especially hits Korea hard). Today, China and Korea only have around 3,100 and 300 surnames surviving, respectively, whereas Japan has ''100,000''.

* Three Disney Channel actresses, Lalaine Vergara-Paras, Raven-Symoné and Zendaya Coleman, are credited as just Lalaine, Raven and Zendaya respectively.
* In French-speaking countries it is a quite common phenomenon for people working in the arts and literature to use made-up names of this type, e. g. playwright Creator/{{Moliere}} (born Jean-Baptiste Poquelin), writer and philosopher Creator/{{Voltaire}} (Francois-Marie Arouet), novelist Creator/{{Stendhal}} (Henri Beyle), the architect Le Corbusier (Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris), actors Creator/{{Fernandel}} (Fernand-Joseph-Désiré Contadin), Arletty (Léonie Bathiat), Bourvil (André-Zacharie Raimbourg), and Capucine (Germaine Lefebvre), and comics artists Moebius (Jean Henri Gaston Giraud), Morris (Maurice De Bevere) and Tibet (Gilbert Gascard). Among Francophone comics creators there is a particular fashion to use noms-de-plume that are phonetic representations of their initials, a fashion probably started by Hergé (Georges Rémi) that includes Achdé, Peyo, Jijé, Jidéem, etc. Marvano (Marc van Oppen) is a borderline case.

* And now the Welsh, due to a shortage of distinct surnames, are repeating the process, to distinguish, e.g., Tom Jones the baker from Tom Jones the singer. This is a recent problem. ''Ancient'' Welsh names were easy to understand, and great for tracing their lineages and ancestry back. For example, "Llywelyn ap Gruffudd" means Llywelyn son of Gruffudd. "Senana ferch Caradog" means Senana daughter of Caradog. Anglicisation, and the rise of Christianity gave birth to a ''naming nightmare'', where families either wanted to, (or were expected to) have more English names, or be named after religious figures. Sometimes the Priest would make mistakes naming the child upon christening (and no one dared to correct a man of God). The consequence of this was everyone ending up with similar names "David David" or "Thomas Thomas" creating a near-impossible task for descendants trying to trace their family trees back.

* Ancient Greece had no surname tradition whatsoever. Aristotle, Socrates, Pericles, Alexander (the Great/of Macedon) and Leonidas I were all surnameless. After Romans conquered Greece and started importing Greek slaves, any freed Greeks had to adopt the surname of their ex-owner since they lacked any of their own.
