* TrinityBlood, anyone? ''Abel Nightroad'' sounds already cool enough, the other cast members' names only add to this.

* Very common with Japanese names in anime and manga, where the names often have special meanings when written in their kanji forms. Many anime/manga authors tend to aim for a specific meaning when naming their characters, thus overlapping with MeaningfulName. The Awesome [=McCoolness=] is often LostInTranslation due to the fact that english translations tend to only show the romanji forms.



* Very common with Japanese names in anime and manga. Due to reasons explained in the Real Life section they can be difficult to translate, but unlike in Real Life, many anime/manga authors are going for a specific meaning when naming their characters.

* Oh, and BlackButler. Seriously, how many children have the luck to be named ''Ciel Phantomhive''? And then we have ''Alois Trancy'' ([[spoiler:which isn't his real name, however]]), ''Angela Durless'' and ''Grell[[SpellMyNameWithAnS (e)]] Sutcliffe. And so forth... The [[BattleButler titular Butlers]] would technically count too, but their human names were given them by their masters.

* In ''[[LightNovel/{{Overlord2012}} Overlord]]'' we Shalltear Bloodfallen, who is fittingly a vampire. It's also a MeaningfulName in that she "'''shall tear''' them to pieces" and uses the '''blood''' of the '''fallen''' for her magic.

* In ShakuganNoShana this is a culture in Crimson society considering all Flame Hazes and Crimson Denizens don a name that describe their being/ what they are. It's also a common practice for them to address each other not by name but their Flame Haze name. In case of Crimson Denizens it's justified considering their appearance is what they choose to represent themselves in human world, for example.

* Let's not forget ''Manga/PandoraHearts''. You'd also like to be member of one of the four noble houses, just because of their last names, don't you. Their names are ''[[LightIsNotGood Vessalius]]'', ''[[DarkIsNotEvil Nightray]]'' (which is very likely the coolest of them all), ''[[AlwaysFemale Rainsworth]]'' and ''[[TokenMinority Barma]]''. The fifth forgotten house is named ''Baskerville'', which is [[Literature/SherlockHolmes an obvious pun]]. And for some reason we have TheBeautifulElite everywhere we go. For some reason, the more important your role in the storyline, the more attractive are you. And if your role gets more important, you suddenly become hotter (Or the other way 'round). Awesome indeed.
