** In the [[TheNameOfTheWind first book]], Elodin asks Kvothe, "Do you know the seven words that will make a woman love you?" Several examples pop up: [[spoiler: "I was just wondering why you're here," "I need you to breathe for me," "You know, I could have carried you," "For all that, she lacked your fire"]]. The lesson is that the right words depend entirely on context. As does most of Naming magic.

* ChekhovsClassroom: Most of the [[ChekhovsGun Chekhov's Guns]] are presented as legend, folklore or instruction from Kvothe's studies.
** For example, the book ''The Mating Habits of the Common Draccus'' is mentioned so many times that if that information failed to come in handy eventually, Chekhov would be very angry.

* SpoiledSweet: Simmon and Threpe are both noblemen (though of middling status) but are extremely humble and friendly.

* UpperClassTwit: Kvothe views most nobility as this way, with the exception of Count Threpe, who gains Kvothe's respect because of his stalwart musicianship.
** Ambrose is a dangerous version of this, and a good example of how a usually comedic trope can be turned to drama.
** Sovoy acts as a foil for Ambrose in the first book. He is ultimately harmless and deep down rather good natured.

never have to suffer repercussions for his bad behavior.
** Sovoy acts as is a foil for Ambrose in nice guy from a noble family, but he has no sense of perspective and doesn't see the first book. He is ultimately harmless and deep down rather good natured.problem with complaining about his lot in life among students who are far worse off than him.

** Caeldish currency (which is the standardized currency for most of the civilized world) is decimal and follows as such; 10 iron drabs to 1 copper jot, 10 jots to 1 silver talent, and 10 talents to 1 gold mark. There is one denomination below a drab known as a shim, also in iron, but it's weight isn't standardized by the Caeldish government and thus it can take anywhere from 11 to 14 to form a drab depending on the weight if the shim and who you're dealing with.

** Aleph, the briefly mentioned creator-god who Named all things, is probably named after the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet. Incidentally, the letter aleph is ''silent'' on its own, but it's still a necessary component of many words; for instance, it begins the Hebrew words that mean "fire," "man," "woman," and "earth."

** Kvothe at one point says that the Adem called him "Maedre", which means either "The Flame, The Thunder or The Burning Tree, depending on how you pronounce it." That sounds relatively innocuous until you find out that the trilogy ''itself'' was originally named "The Song of Flame and Thunder," until being given its current title to avoid confusion with ''ASongOfIceAndFire''. Kvothe's own name was formerly a TitleDrop.
