Can't do anything without BREAKING something. Sorry 'bout that
** Oddly, in ''Anime/TheBigO'', there was a ''cat'' named Perro.[[note]]Though, in Japanese, "pero" is also the onomatopoeia used for cats licking themselves (Japanese has no double-R), giving an alternate explanation for the name.[[/note]]

Gurren Lagann was originally in the T's because "Tenga", but since I used the shorthand, I'd better move it next to Gunslinger Girl
* In ''Anime/GurrenLagann'', we have Simon's pet pig-mole, Boota (or Buta). Buta literally means "pig" or "swine" in Japanese[[note]]e.g. [[Anime/PorcoRosso Kurenai No Buta]], which means "Pig of Crimson", or "Red Pig".[[/note]]

* This is omnipresent in ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}''. While the species names are either PokemonSpeak or VerbalTicName, it's a little weird that nearly every pet Pokémon is named after its species.

* This is almost omnipresent in ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}''. While the species names are either PokemonSpeak or VerbalTicName, it's a little weird that nearly every pet Pokémon is named after its species. This is most likely due to marketing reasons (viewers would get confused and think that the given nickname is what the whole species is called).

* ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' also fit this trope, despite some of them being fluent in human language.
to:
* In Manga/CMonDigimon, Makoto Abe and Kentaro Kamon are the only ones who actually give their monsters names. Everyone else merely calls them what they are (Meramon, Deathmon, ect). Downplayed in Manga/DigimonVTamer01, where most plot relevant monsters do have names and out right {{subverted|trope}} in Arkadimon's case, as that ''is'' it's name. On the other hand, Bun's species name is only implied but never outright confirmed while Arkadimon, Pal and Pul's species names are ''never'' given(well, Pal and Pul were called Petitmamon years after V-tamer was done). The ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' also fit as whole played this trope, totally straight after C-Mon and V-Tamer were done though, despite some of them monsters being fluent in human language.language (unless you count Chaos Lord and Neo Crimson from ''Videogame/DigimonWorld2''. Once again, [[InvertedTrope species names never revealed]])

** In ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'', trainers who bother nicknaming their Pokémon usually give nicknames that barely deviate from the species' name anyways. ** In fact, White is the only nicknaming Dex Holder who gives her Pokémon regular names, albeit slightly punny ones.

In an interesting variation, X gives his Pokemon nicknames based off of their ''French'' names.
