Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Similar to Embarrassing Middle Name and Embarrassing Last Name, this trope covers instances when a character has a first name that they don't like to be called by. Such characters use a variety of tactics to avoid their real first name:
Getting a nickname (often one that hints at their embarrassing name).
Picking a new first name.
Claiming their middle name is their first name.
Insisting that everyone call them by their last name.
This does not necessarily need to cross Unfortunate Names territory. Most of the time, the first name is a very normal one that only sounds embarrassing to the bearer. A Giver of Lame Names causes this. If people continue to call the character by that first name anyway, it may lead to a Do Not Call Me "Paul" scenario.
Compare Real Joke Name, and Fluffy the Terrible. Contrast Awesome McCoolname.

Heartful Punch of Sleepless Domain considers her real name, Kokoro, embarrassing because it's cute and, for all the pink and hearts that adorn her Magical Girl outfit, she's a Tomboy brawler to the core. She prefers to go by Heartful Punch, or HP for short. The only person she's given explicit permission to use it is Undine. Not even the other members of the Magical Girl Power Training Club, who HP is otherwise closest to, never use it, referring to it as the "Forbidden Name" and treating it like a Berserk Button.

In the continuity reboot of The Wild Storm, the not-yet-appeared Grunge's name comes from the fact his mother was a big fan of King Arthur, and wanted to name all her kids after the Knights of the Round Table. Fortunately, she only had two. Her husband's killer regards the fact Grunge's dad named him Percival a greater horror than the man trying to squish his brain.

Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam has a male lead named Kamille, who naturally hates his feminine-sounding name. He eventually falls in love with a girl named Four, who has similar issues with her name (in her case, because it signifies that she is a number rather than an individual). In fact, the entire reason Kamille got involved in the war between the AEUG and Titans is because he assaulted a Titans soldier (his future Rival Jerid Mesa) who remarked on his name and got arrested for it.

On Desperate Housewives, Mike and Susan name their son Maynard, after Mike's deceased grandfather. Susan's not happy about this and would have preferred Connor, afraid for what her poor son will have to suffer through in school. They compromise by calling him MJ (the 'J' standing for "James", the name of Mike's other grandfather).

In The Witchlands, Cam considers "Camilla" to be one. Merik initially assumes that's because she doesn't want anyone to know she's a girl, but it turns out it's because Cam's transgender and doesn't want to be referred to by a very traditional female name.

The World Ends with You:
"Beat"'s true first name, "Daisukenojo", is so stupid, Neku wasn't even able to recognize it as a name when he first heard it (he thought 777 was cursing at Beat). What's especially painful for him is that it's just a more sucky version of the perfectly nice Japanese name "Daisuke". Had his parents just held back the last two kana, they would have saved him a lot of suffering.
Resident Manipulative Bastard Mr. Kitaniji counts as well. His first name is Megumi, which is a unisex name, but it's more typically used as a girl's name than as a boy's. The manga based upon the game goes further, implying that the childhood trauma of being teased for having a girl's name was one of the driving reason behind Kitaniji's ultimate goal.

Ranma ½ actually uses this as a plot point for one character: one Chinese village has a tradition that the person who gives a newborn baby its first bath must be the one to name it. Unfortunately, this gave panty stealing pervert Happosai the chance to name a baby, and since he loves women's garments so much he thought that the perfect name for a little boy would be Pantyhose Taro. Pantyhose Taro hates his name, and is on a constant quest to force Happosai to give him a new one, since Happosai is the only one who can change it. Unfortunately, his own choice of replacement first names aren't much better.
For the curious, the other names Pantyhose Taro could have ended up with (Happosai begins trying to list some alternatives in Pantyhose Taro's first story before he finally decides that he just can't think of a better name than "Pantyhose Taro"), include, between the anime and the manga, "Loincloth Shiro", "Underwear Saburo", "Cockroach Goro", "Bellywrap Shishiro", and "Heartburn Rokuro".
All of those were shot down, of course, much to Happosai's chagrin, because he spent a lot of time to come up with specifically ridiculous names for Taro.
Bear in mind that the two things Happosai did was bathe him in the Jusenkyo Springs and name him, and he finds the name more offensive than the Involuntary Transformation bit (then again, he's well aware it's a Cursed with Awesome situation - he turns into a winged minotaur, which he later gives Combat Tentacles).
For those who wonder why he just doesn't use his first name if it's so awful, that's a case of Dub-Induced Plot Hole. "Taro" isn't his surname, but a common suffix for Japanese boys' names (like Kintaro, Kotaro, etc); his full name is "Pantyhosetaro". So, in Japanese, it'd be sort of like "my name's Bob, but call me Ob". Unfortunately, it doesn't translate well into English.

Ash Upton of Misfile whose real first name was Ashley even before the titular Misfile turned him into a girl.

K has Misaki Yata and Saruhiko Fushimi (Saru means "monkey"), who allow each other to use those names, and very few others... of course, once they become enemies, they use the names to taunt each other, though it maintains an air of intimacy and a suggestion that they will someday get back together.

In Sluggy Freelance, there is:
Riffington (a.k.a Riff).
Torg, who fully intends to continue the tradition by naming his first son or daughter "Zorg", despite already anticipating his child's complaining.
The God of Destruction was originally named Kozoaku, but his true name has been changed twice to make it harder to summon him. The second time he is renamed, Gwynn chooses "Poopypants", much to his annoyance.
There is also Slaughteresa, who's mother presumably wanted it to be a Meaningful Name. Slaughteresa herself prefers to just be called Teresa.

Bleach: Ichigo. Sure, the kanji reading amounts to "protects one thing" but the name is also homonymous with "strawberry" (and his hair is orange). Even worse, it's also a girl's name. It doesn't help him maintain a badass image. Characters and even the manga-ka in chapter titles are not above exploiting this. He's even called "Berry-tan" to his face by Mashiro. Lampshaded when he first meets Ikkaku who takes note of his name because they share "Ichi-" as part of the name, concluding it's an awesome, lucky omen for both of them. Ichigo observes that he's not used to that kind of reaction when admitting what his name is.

Late in the show's run, Vera reveals that Norm's first name is Hillary; not only did the name sound embarrassing, but he was also named after his grandfather who "once killed a man for laughing at him". (When Cliff asks him if that story about his grandfather is true, Norm replies, "Not exactly – he was a surgeon and he sort of botched an operation.")

Roast Beef of Achewood was initially believed to be a girl when he was born, so his parents gave him the name of Cassandra. No wonder he became The Woobie.

Stacey of The Baby-Sitters Club doesn't reveal her real first name (Anastasia) to the rest of the club until Book 13. Whenever it's mentioned thereafter, it's either because she's in trouble or as a source of hilarity.

Milhouse Van Houten from The Simpsons, named after Richard Milhous Nixon. It was the most unfortunate name Matt Groening could think of for a kid.
In the episode where Lisa learns Italian, his middle name is revealed to be Mussolini.
The first name of school bully Jimbo Jones is revealed to be "Corky" in one episode. Another episode has Nelson calling him by the far less embarrassing and more justifiable "James." That Other Wiki and a few other resources, however, show Jimbo's full name as "Conrad James Jones."

The Widowers assume that the B stands for Benjamin until Henry points out that he would no reason to be embarrassed by the name Benjamin or not to use Ben as a nickname. His father was fascinated by Roman history and his eldest son's first name as actually Brutus.

In Origins, a Mass Effect/Star Wars/Borderlands/Halo Massive Multiplayer Crossover, a villain is introduced as "The Lady," a mysterious figure who exerts power over Cerberus and other less-than-upright individuals by providing them with advanced technology. This person has immense power, wielding a combination of Siren abilities and the Dark Side of the Force. Her name (in an Aerith and Bob setting)? Sarah. It turns out this has special meaning from her creators, "Selfless Servant of the (Eridian/Forerunner) Mantle", that just happens to translate, but still... Played for Laughs several times, though she accepts it over time and other characters stop teasing her about it.

Lupe dy Cazaril, the protagonist of The Curse of Chalion. The book has a fantasy setting where naming conventions aren't quite as we know them, but it's clear that "Lupe" is considered embarrassing In-Universe both because the protagonist doesn't use it unless he has to and because of the other characters' reactions when it does come out. It means "wolf" and people used to make fun of him by howling like wolves.

Dragon Ball:
In the original Japanese version of Dragon Ball (the original), Bulma hesitatingly says her name when Goku asks what it is. This is because she originally thought her name was embarrassing because of what it sounded like (in the manga; in the anime, Goku just though it was a "funny name"). All of this got lost in both the Vancouver dub and in Funimation's redub. In the original, Bulma is called Buruma, which is a Japanese pronunciation of "bloomers", a type of women's underwear (compare her son Trunks, her daughter Bra/Bulla, and her father Dr. Briefs).
Then Dragon Ball Z introduces Goku's original name, Kakarot, used for his original purpose, when he was sent to Earth to cleanse all life from it. He rejected that name after rejecting his mission, but Vegeta and a few villains still refer to him by that name, even though he'd rather they not. Come the end of Dragon Ball Super: Broly, he tells Broly that it’s okay to call him by that name, however.

Harry Potter:
Nymphadora Tonks, "who prefers to be known by her surname only" ("So would you if your fool of a mother had called you 'Nymphadora'"). While her mother Andromeda presumably uses this first name, and her father and husband call her "Dora," everyone else uses Tonks.
Voldemort's actual name, Tom Marvolo Riddle, also counts as he has a very common first name and dislikes anything that makes him common. His real name is also a constant reminder of his Muggle heritage, something he really wants to distance himself from.
Ginevra "Ginny" Weasley.
Harry's grandfather was named Fleamont which was his great-grandmother's maiden name. She didn't want the name to die out. According to supplemental material, he was made fun of his name so much that he became an extremely accomplished dueler by the time he left Hogwarts.

He realizes he doesn't know and spends the rest of the short trying to find out. When he discovers his name is "Rumpelstiltskin", he's too embarrassed to go back and claim his prize.

Dr. Cox of Scrubs has the first name Perry. This isn't notable (and probably not said) until you know that he hates apparently 'gay' names like Quinn or, well, Perry.
His first name is actually revealed to be Percival, for which Perry is short.
Gay Perry? Does that remind anybody of anything?
And in the most recent season, Perry's full name is revealed to be Percival Ulysses Cox.

Theodor Fontane's Der Stechlin has two examples.
Dubslav von Stechlin, the main character, hates his first name because it is a name atypical of Brandenburg (the province of Prussia in which he lives) and typical of the neighbouring province of Pomerania.
Czech supporting character Nils Wrschowitz dislikes his first name partly because it is Northern Germanic and does not fit with his Slavic surname, but more importantly because his father named him after the 19th-century Danish composer Nils Gade, whom he, as a very pronounced Wagnerian, has come to detest. Wrschowitz thus went to the effort of earning a doctorate in music so that he could print "Dr. Wrschowitz" on his calling-cards without the embarrassing first name. In the novel, he is shown so touchy about his first name that people are advised not to mention anything or anybody Scandinavian in his presence as he will suspect you of obliquely reminding him of his Danish first name!

In the YA vampire novel Team Human, the protagonist, Mel, tells us fairly early that her name is not short for Melanie and she's not going to tell us what it is short for, except that it was arrived at in the same spirit of experimentation that saw her brother named "Lancelot". Eventually, her best friend gives her a Full-Name Ultimatum and reveals it to be Mellifluous.

In The Wrestler, Randy "The Ram" Robinson hates being called by his real name, Robin Raminski, partly because it's an embarrassing name and partly because he can't give up his wrestling alter-ego.

The show Supernatural has Crowley...whose real name is Fergus Roderick Macleod. He hates this name, especially because his demon minions make fun of him behind his back and call him Lucky the Leprechaun, which, as Bobby points out, is stupid because his name is SCOTTISH, not Irish.

Lt. Provenza of The Closer has yet to reveal his first name. ("What's your first name?" "Lieutenant.")
An affadavit later shows his full name as "Louie M. Provenza".
Peter Falk gave the same answer when asked what Columbo's first name was. (A close-up of a badge seen in the second episode reveals it to be "Frank", though this wasn't clear until the show came out on DVD.)

In Prison Island Break, Shadow the Hedgehog 's full name is "Ursula Leslie Robotnik", which is why he insists that everybody call him Shadow, but Sonic occasionally embarrasses him with it. At one point he explains that it means "Oops, we expected a girl."

The Adventures of Dr. McNinja: The titular doctor's first name is not known to anybody but himself. There's a wizard involved, it's a whole thing. The last arc of the series reveals that his first name is Patrick. Not an exceptional case of this trope, but the first person he reveals this to has the given name Sparkledancer, and finds it bland.

Leonard Hofstadter from The Big Bang Theory once revealed he hates his first name, because the last syllable sounds like "nerd". To make things worse, his middle name is Leakey (after Louis Leakey, the famous anthropologist his father used to work with - nothing to do with his history of bed-wetting).
Also, Sheldon's father apparently thought this about Sheldon.

In Terra Ignota,Mycroft comments early on that while his own first name used to be one of the most common (presumably due to Sherlock Holmes fans), his past conduct made it so that it lost popularity and people named Mycroft are inclined to go by other names in public, like Mycroft Guildbreaker going by Martin Guildbreaker instead. Once the reader learns that Mycroft's a serial killer, this makes a lot of sense.

Although he had always had it since his first appearance in the games, Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog portrays Miles "Tails" Prower as "hating" his real name. In the episode in question, "Tails' New Home", not only does Sonic threaten to reveal that to everyone if he didn't bail, but it also caused Sonic to realize he had been duped by Robotnik. note Sonic had thought they found Tails' missing parents and returned Tails to them. As he's remininsing, he realizes they called him "Tails", not "Miles".

Gen13 team member Grunge has the unenviable first name Percival. He doesn't like his middle name, Edmund, much either — he goes by "Eddy" at times but he mostly prefers the name "Grunge."
In the continuity reboot of The Wild Storm, the not-yet-appeared Grunge's name comes from the fact his mother was a big fan of King Arthur, and wanted to name all her kids after the Knights of the Round Table. Fortunately, she only had two. Her husband's killer regards the fact Grunge's dad named him Percival a greater horror than the man trying to squish his brain.

Fox Mulder of The X-Files once told Scully that he made his parents call him Mulder. Interestingly, his middle name is the perfectly normal William.

In Fallout 3 there's an NPC soldier who uses the code name "Captain Gallows". No one in the Brotherhood of Steel (not even in the Lyon's Pride ) knows his real name, to the point where there's a large betting pool for whoever finds the name. If the player has a high enough speech skill then they can convince him to reveal that his real name is Irving.

In season 5 of The Venture Bros., panicky bodyguard Sargeant Hatred reluctantly reveals that his first name is Courtney, thanks to an old-fashioned mother. Despite being an EX-villain, accidentally growing breasts, and being highly emotional, "Hatred" suits him far better.

In The Sandman spinoff mini-series Death: The Time of Your Life, Foxglove's "minder" is Boris, who partly fits the trope of a Scary Black Man. Unfortunately, there are some things you can't hide from Death, so when in the course of a conversation she addresses him by his real name, Endymion, he hastens to point out to everyone present that he really prefers to be called Boris.

In Mass Effect 3, Jacob Taylor (assuming he survived the second game) is starting a family. Since you saved their lives, his girlfriend wants to name the baby after you. The problem is, your first name is player chosen, so the baby's name would end up as Shepard Taylor.
According to the Mass Effect Datapad App, the poor kid's name ended up being even worse since Brynn instead opted to name her after Admiral Hackett. Hopefully, Jacob was able to talk her out of naming their daughter Hackett Taylor.
Since Shepard's first name is player-chosen, and thus never spoken by any of the cast, the player could invoke this trope by giving their Shepard a truly embarrassing first name (and given the senses of humor of most gamers, it's probably happened more often than not.)

In one episode of CatDog, where the characters prepare for the impending Apocalypse, a few of the Greasers take the opportunity to exchange emotional confessions. Cliff confesses that his name is short for "Clifford", and Lube follows suit by confessing that his real name is "Ignatius". After the latter confession, Cliff promptly kills the mood by laughing hysterically at Lube.

In KonoSuba, Darkness absolutely hates her real first name Lalatina. At one point Kazuma threatens to do something so horrible and embarrassing to her that it'll make her want to die of shame — a real feat considering she's a hardcore masochist who literally gets off on being insulted and humiliated. Naturally, what he meant was revealing her real name to all their friends, and when they praise her heroism ("Three cheers for Lalatina!") she actually curls up and wishes herself dead.

An episode of Mushi Shi features this. During it, Ginko meets a man who is determined to capture a rainbow. He tells Ginko that his father was actually able to touch a rainbow once and even took it home, where it remained until it disappeared. As a result, he became obsessed with finding it again and became extremely excited whenever it was going to rain. He even named his son after the Rainbow. His name became the source of ridicule for him growing up. His father apologized on his deathbed and wrote down a new name for his son to use before explaining that he was only trying to name him after something precious to him. His son refuses the new name and ultimately finds the Mushi.

Another example is Zarine "Faile" Bashere, who hates her first name because to her it's a name for a woman who reclines on cushions while eating grapes. Her chosen name means Falcon.

After Allison wins a drinking game against an extremely powerful ebon devil, he breaks their deal and becomes an unbound devil. She grabs a nearby mask and starts to bind him. But since she's still very very drunk, she ends up naming him Princess Mamoru Moonshine Jagermeister Jack Jack Daniels Timothy Tim Bill Freddy Mercury Blueberry Luna, Esquire. She also turns him female in the process.

Cartoon or comic, Will Vandom of W.I.T.C.H. can never escape her real name. In the comics, it's "Wilhelmina" and in the first episode of the cartoon, it's revealed to be "Wilma". The comics made an example when Will flipped out over her relatives calling her baby brother (named William) "Will"... and then, they all started calling her "Wilhelmina" once they found out her real name, much to her displeasure.

The Mmmmmmmmmporg from Wakfu is a nigh-unstoppable, super fast and strong behemoth of a man who was considered a living weapon to unleash against a rival city, able to move so fast he leaves a stream of fire behind. All of this is fine and dandy until we learn that his actual name is Marilyn, which makes the entire stadium he's in burst in a prolonged roaring laughter. Unfortunately, said laughter makes him go into an Unstoppable Rage.

Archie Comics:
Jughead and Jellybean Jones are named Forsythe and Forsythia respectively. In one story, Jughead goes out of his way to keep Jellybean's name from being revealed to the public via billboard, and both characters have had stories where people who try to call them by their real names ended up with misfortune. Oddly, in Jughead's case, his distaste for his name is partly because any girl who hears it thinks it's suave and romantic and starts chasing him. Even odder, Reggie seems to suffer a string of continuous bad luck whenever he mentions Jellybean's real name, making him warn everybody not to say it, thinking it's a curse.
In the first comic Archie insists on being called "Chick" instead of "Archibald" or "Archie". This is never mentioned again.

In the Tintin comics, the first name of Captain Haddock is only mentioned once (in the last finished album, no less). The Captain gets momentary amnesia after getting hit on the head, and when told by Tintin that his first name is Archibald he snarks and says that the name is ridiculous. Which might explain why nobody ever calls him by his first name otherwise (then again, few people get called by their first name in the series, except Tintin, who doesn't seem to have any other name, and minor characters like Igor, Irma, and Allan).

Rocky and Bullwinkle's "Fractured Fairy Tales" has a segment about a young girl named Tussinelda Wolfenpinkle, "but she had such lovely gold curls that everybody called her Goldilocks, which was probably just as well."
In "Son of Rumpelstiltskin", the titular character goes through the same motions as his father. The princess admits defeat, but demands to know what his name is before she hands her child over. He realizes he doesn't know and spends the rest of the short trying to find out. When he discovers his name is "Rumpelstiltskin", he's too embarrassed to go back and claim his prize.

In an episode of Courage the Cowardly Dog, Muriel is kidnapped and forced to make kilts for a gnome-like man. Eventually, Courage discovers that the guy hates both his first and last names: Rumpled Kiltskin. When Muriel finds out about this, she suggests he legally change his name, suggesting "Rumplestiltskin". The guy actually thinks that's a good idea, and suggests the two become business partners. It Makes Just as Much Sense in Context, as much as the show does in general.

Mervyn, the Sheriff of Rottingham from Robin Hood: Men in Tights. It's revealed during his wedding, and the officiant is the first to giggle at the nerdy name.
Another character's family had their last name changed TO Latrine before the movie took place. It used to be Shithouse.
Funny enough, this was asked by Prince John, who due to his actions, the King has declared all the toilets in the kingdom are to be renamed John.

The male lead in David Palmer's Emergence tells the narrator, with a suggestive smirk, "Just call me Adam." She thinks that's pretty cheesy (they're both eleven years old), but doesn't blame him nearly so much after she finds out his parents christened him "Melville Winchester Higginbotham Grosvenor Penobscot-Jones IV."

Hisui Hearts of Tales of Hearts, whose name is a girl's in Japanese and translates to the equally feminine "Jade". For some reason, Hisui himself is only called out on this passingly (in a sidequest where the revelation of his name tears down a badass bruiser image he'd built), and his predecessor Jade Curtiss in Tales of the Abyss not at all.

In Shadow Star, Shiina Tamai writes her first name in katakana (phonetic characters) because she hates the kanji used for it, which is read as "empty husk" or "a seed that shall never sprout". It actually becomes a critical plot point near the end of the manga.

Uncle Phil from Mad About You thought he was dying and made the Buchmans promise to name their first son after him. He then revealed that his real first name was "Deuteronomy". He didn't hold them to their promise.
When his "dying" proved to be a false alarm, he revealed that his reasoning was sound if a little odd-Deuteronomy is such an unusual name that there would never be any of the confusion in child identification that so plagues the parents who were foolish enough to name their child "Joe".
Later they ended up naming their daughter Mabel, which it could be argued was a lateral move at best.

And even then, only after a fair amount of coaxing from Charlie and it is immediately followed by Boss making him swear to never tell anyone on the off chance they live.

While it's never really touched on in either the games or the anime (probably because it wasn't an issue in the original Japanese), the male Magma Admin in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire/Emerald has the decidedly feminine name "Tabitha". Similarly, the manga-only Aqua Admin (both Team Magma and Team Aqua have two male admins in the manga as opposed to the one in the games and anime) is named "Amber".

In Bakugan Dan's last name is "Kuso". "Kuso" essentially means "shit". It's odd since the series is Japanese so it's not a Critical Research Failure, and it's a kid show at that. note Although Japan is very lax with strong interjections and seems to have little if any concept of "cuss words". You can find various words that translate to "damn" and "shit" used in children's anime quite often.

Diana Gabaldon has a few examples:
As if "Percy" wasn't silly enough, Lord John's lover/stepbrother in Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade isn't actually named Percival, but Perseverance.
In An Echo In The Bone, we meet brothers Herman and Vermin. This trope is speculated upon. A little more excusable given that they are in actuality the sisters Hermione and Ermintrude. And in A Breath Of Snow And Ashes, Roger christens a little girl, who the family names in his honor... Rogerina.

In the original Japanese version of Dragon Ball (the original), Bulma hesitatingly says her name when Goku asks what it is. This is because she originally thought her name was embarrassing because of what it sounded like (in the manga; in the anime, Goku just though it was a "funny name"). All of this got lost in both the Vancouver dub and in Funimation's redub. In the original, Bulma is called Buruma, which is a Japanese pronunciation of "bloomers", a type of women's underwear (compare her son Trunks, her daughter Bra/Bulla, and her father Dr. Briefs).

Umibozu from City Hunter prefers to go by that nickname (meaning sea monster) or his old codename Falcon (mostly used by people connected to his time in the US, including his wife) rather than his real name Hayato Ijuin. That's not because Hayato is a strange name, but because it's utterly normal-and so completely embarrassing for a gigantic Professional Killer whose strong points are demolitions and enough strength to do Guns Akimbo with a machine gun and a bazooka.

Inspector Morse's first name was not revealed for some time on the show, because he was embarrassed about it. Even lovers only called him "Morse". His first name was eventually revealed to be Endeavour. This practice has a history with him: one of his college friends from Oxford reveals that his nickname all through school was "Pagan", because he refused to give his Christian name.
Series 3 pathologist Grayling Russell also fits the trope.

Knots Landing: Mack's first name is Marion. This was not revealed to the audience until Season Eight, Mack's fifth season, when Karen reads a letter supposedly written by Anne (which she never sent to Mack) mentioning his first name in "The Inside Man". Karen's lack of reaction indicates that she was, unsurprisingly, already aware of this even if the audience weren't.

In The Hunger Games, while the people themselves don't seem to mind, Katniss notes that a lot of District 1's denizens should be embarrassed by their names, the likes of which include Glimmer, Marvel, Cashmere, and Gloss. This doubles as Hypocritical Humor, given District 12 has some bizarre name, such as Peeta the baker. Pita bread? Then there's the likes of Beetee and Wiress in District 3. Plus a tribute named Woof in Catching Fire.

On Codename: Kids Next Door, the episode "Operation: S.L.U.M.B.E.R." revealed that Numbuh 86's real name was Fanny. Cue butt jokes. The jokes would have been considerably worse if she'd lived in the UK... which, judging from her Scottish accent, she probably has.
Numbuh 2's first name is Hogarth. He goes by Hoagie, which isn't much better.

One episode of Kids Incorporated revealed that the character who had previously been known only as "The Kid" was embarrassed by his traditional African first name, Ras'san (Also the actor's first name; with two or three exceptions, every character on the show was The Danza). After a Very Special Episode taught him not to be ashamed of his heritage, everyone started calling him Ras'san. Right up to the end of the episode, after which it was never mentioned again. The guy left the show shortly afterwards.

According to To Boldly Flee, The Cinema Snob's Embarrassing First Name is Bradakin. This is a portmanteau of Snob's actor's first name, Brad, and Anakin Skywalker, to continue the spoof of the Star Wars movies his character centered on.
On the other hand, while everyone else thinks Terl's first name is embarrassing (it's Ferdinand), Terl himself is quite proud of it.

Dr. McKay of Stargate Atlantis prefers to be addressed by his middle name, Rodney, because his first name is Meredith. Strangely his teammates don't know it; you'd expect that it would've been in his file, unless he had it legally changed. Good luck getting his sister to stop calling him that, though. An Alternate Universe McKay goes a step further and prefers to be called Rod. Then again alternate-McKay is so damn awesome that maybe he goes by Meredith but his reputation precedes him enough for everyone to call him Rod, if you know what I mean. The McKay from the main timeline laments that he could never get anyone to call him "Rod". For reference, Meredith was originally a man's name (Welsh for "great lord") before migrating into gender-neutral and, eventually, mostly female territory.

Skunky Beaumont from Doug not only lost his Ghost status after Disney took over, he also got a truly Embarrassing First Name, namely Walter.
In fact, most characters in this show should feel more embarrassed about their names than about their skin colors, but probably the only other character to whom this applies would be Skeeter (a.k.a. Mosquito) Valentine.

Then Dragon Ball Z introduces Goku's original name, Kakarot, used for his original purpose, when he was sent to Earth to cleanse all life from it. He rejected that name after rejecting his mission, but Vegeta and a few villains still refer to him by that name, even though he'd rather they not. Come the end of Dragon Ball Super: Broly, he tells Broly that it’s okay to call him by that name, however.

MacGyver always seemed embarrassed by his first name. Even former lovers only ever called him "MacGyver" (his grandfather called him "bud"). In one of the show's final episodes, his first name was revealed to be "Angus", which isn't really all that embarrassing. His embarrassment was probably based on the name originally scripted for him, which was "Stacey".

The 1632 series features three kids whose parents were hippies, and thus are all named after Tolkien characters (Faramir, Gwaihir, and Elrond); their father later sobers up a bit and gives them the pseudonyms of Frank, Gerry, and Ron so they don't get beaten up at school.

In Friends Chandler's first name is considered embarrassing, though not so embarrassing that he doesn't use it. In one episode, they name one of Phoebe's brother's triplets after him:
He also has an embarrassing last name:
Not to mention his middle name. In short, the reason Chandler uses his first name is because it's the least embarrassing of his embarrassing names.
When Ross and Rachel discuss the name of their as-of-yet unborn child. They agree beforehand that if the other person doesn't like the name, for whatever reason, they can call "veto" on it. The argument goes on for long enough that eventually Phoebe pipes up with "Is it just me, or is 'Vito' starting to sound really good?"

In the Korean drama series My Lovely Sam-soon, a major part of the series is devoted to Kim Sam-soon's embarrassment about the name "Sam-soon", which roughly means "Third daughter".
Sam-soon isn't weird because of its meaning. In Korean the meaning of a name doesn't really matter in Korean. Any name with either "Sam" or "Soon", is considered either embarrassing or old-fashioned.
Sam-soon can also mean "thirty years", and the character Kim Sam-soon is thirty years old.

Dexter's Laboratory: In the episode "A Boy Named Sue", Mandark revealed that his hippy-dippy parents had named him Susan, much to his humiliation. The title of the episode is itself derived from the song written by Shel Silverstein and sung by Johnny Cash, about a boy who wants to kill his father for naming him Sue. It doesn't help that when Dexter meets Mandark for the first time, he has long hair and wears a girly dress, and Dexter calls him a little girl, despite Mandark's insistence that he is a boy. And when Dexter asks him what his name is and Mandark gives an affirmative answer, Dexter starts laughing at him. This, apparently, is what sets their rivalry into motion. Though his introductory episode had him introduced as Ivan Astronomonov.

Bull's real first name is Nostradamus, with his mother claiming she named him after "the hunchback (Notre Dame?)."
