Obviously, most Three Stooges shorts feature characters named Moe, Larry & Curly/Shemp/Joe. But not all of them.

In WOMAN HATERS, the characters are Tom, Jim & Jack.
In GOOFS AND SADDLES, the characters are Will Bill Hiccup, Just Plain Bill & Buffalo Billius.
In SWEET AND HOT, they're Dr. Hugo Gansamacher, Larry & Joe.

Are there any others?

(I'm disregarding feature films because they're another matter altogether, especially where the Stooges have brief cameos as unnamed characters. ROCKIN' IN THE ROCKIES may be worth a mention, though, with Moe being called Shorty Williams.)

In A MERRY MIX-UP, not only were there Larry, Moe, and Joe, but also Luke, Morris, and Jeff, along with Louie, Max, and Jack.

Good ones!

Right, but this doesn't count because there were still Moe, Larry & Joe.

I think there are many when, once past the opening credits, they don't use any names at all, aside from insults like Porcupine and  Puddinhead.

In that case, I guess I'm asking, "in which shorts does one or more of the Stooges go solely by a character name other than Moe/Larry/[third Stooge]?"

According to imdb.com, the Stooges are listed as "Click", "Clack", and "Cluck" in "Dutiful But Dumb":

Curly Howard        ...    Cluck (as Curly)
Larry Fine        ...    Clack (as Larry)
Moe Howard        ...    Click (as Moe)

In BLUNDER BOYS (1955), Moe, Larry and Shemp play Halliday, Tarraday, and Days, respectively.

Last night I watched Snow White and The Three Stooges for the weekly episode discussion, and though I'm sure Moe and Curly Joe were called by name, I don't think Larry ever was.  One thing's for certain, I'm not going to watch it again to double-check.

Although all three names were written on the wagon.
