** Quite a few companions in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout4}}'' have pretty sick names, including Curie (named for Marie Curie), John Hancock (no not that one), Piper Wright, Codsworth, Deacon, and Strong (he's a Super Mutant). Also, your main character can have a myriad of spoken names in the game; these can be as common as 'John' or 'Evelyn', as amazing as '[[Film/MadMaxFuryRoad Furiosa' or 'Rockatansky']], or as hilarious as 'Fuckface' and 'Titties'.

*** What about a gambler named Setzer Gabbiani ("Gabbiani" means trick/cheat)? A blue mage called Strago/[[SublimeRhyme Stragus Magus]] which literally means "Twisted Mage"? Locke Cole is a double pun for lock and Loki ([[NorseMythology the Norse deity]]) and it fits perfectly for a thief. Terra Branford is the perfect example since her Japanese name is Tina and they [[{{Woolseyism}} changed it for the western release]] because it sounded too simple and common.

Fail O Suckyname is no longer a trope. Wicks are being disambiguated.
* William J. Blazkowicz (the protagonist of ''VideoGame/Wolfenstein3D'') and his grandson Billy Blaze (better known as ''VideoGame/CommanderKeen''). Granted, William's name takes a turn for the [[{{Pun}} Sucky]] [[FailOSuckyName name]] territory when it's shortened into BJ Blazkowicz. Just don't tell him that to his face.

Changing wording to fit with previous edit
** ''Ganondorf'', on the other hand... It's Ganondorf ''Dragmire''. Not that his full name gets brought up more than once or twice in the whole series....

Not the page for subversions and merging examples
** Actually subverted by TheHero: no matter how BadAss he is, you have to admit that "Link" isn't exactly an awe-inspiring name. Is that why Nintendo keeps allowing players to [[HelloInsertNameHere change Link's name]]?

** This game makes you wonder if the parents could see the future when naming their children. I mean, a tanned and angry guy with a tiger themed suit named [[HotBlooded Furio Tigre]]? An assassin named Joe Darke? A detective named Tyrell Badd? [[ColorfulThemeNaming Redd White]] and [[TemporalThemeNaming April May]] are okay but [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Bruto Cadaverini]] is way too perfect [[TheMafia for his job]].
