Words with multiple readings of the same kanji

I was thinking about how I’ve seen a few names for things or places where the same kanji appears twice, and each time it uses a different reading (usually one on and one kun reading), but are there any examples of words like this? Either where they use an on and a kun reading or two on readings.

Yeah, the Wikipedia article about the iteration mark (々) gives some examples.

日日 ひにち number of days, date (different from 日々 ひび every day, good old days)
出出し でだし start, beginning
湯湯婆 ゆたんぽ hot water bottle

These cannot be written using the iteration mark because of the pronunciation differences. But in practice these tend to get written as

日にち
出だし
湯たんぽ

Then there’s also 日曜日.
