This year's Summer Games Done Quick speedrunning marathon finished with Earthbound. In part a charity event raising funds for Doctors Without Borders, viewers were allowed to bid on naming stuff at the beginning of the game.

Some adventures cannot begin without naming your character. It's when Final Fantasy Clouds can be Squalls. Or Freds. Some games provide the option to change your character's name at the start screen.
