* The Franchise/{{BIONICLE}} WebGame ''Mata Nui Online Game II'' had two Onu-Matoran villagers named Akamu and Damek. The first name is a Czech diminutive for the name Adam, while the second is a vernacular form of Adamu, the Hawaiian transliteration of the name Adam. However, in this case the symbolic meaning is the literal translation "from the earth" rather than any progenitor figure, as Onu-Matoran are [[BeneathTheEarth tunnel dwellers]] and represent the [[ElementalPowers element]] of [[DishingOutDirt earth]].

* A weird example: in the second year of the ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog'' comic book, a one-shot villain called E.V.E. ('''E'''xceptionally '''V'''ersatile '''E'''volvanoid) was introduced. Created by Dr. Robotnik, E.V.E. was shape-shifting mass of what basically amounted to nanomachines, and there was little to suggest that the name was chosen by Dr. R with the biblical character in mind...until several years later, when Dr. Eggman came up with a mostly unrelated artificial intelligence called A.D.A.M.

* In Stephen King's ''RoseRed'' mini-series and the accompanying tie-in novel, Ellen Rimbauer gives birth to her first child, a boy, and writes in her diary: "I shall name him Adam, for he is the first." He actually ends up being her only son; her only other child is a girl named April, after her birth month.

* The original comic ''Comicbook/{{Wanted}}'' - which is populated by {{exp|y}}ies and/or [[CaptainErsatz Captains Ersatz]] of the villains (and to a lesser extent heroes) of the DCUniverse instead of the assassins' guild of the [[Film/{{Wanted}} movie]] based on it - has Adam-One, the oldest man on Earth, a Captain Ersatz of Vandal Savage (an ancient, immortal caveman and MagnificentBastard in the DCU). His name is obviously meant to imply that he's the first human being and possibly the Biblical Adam himself.

** It gets much better in the Epilogue of the game, when it is revealed that [[spoiler: EVA was in fact a random chinese spy who accidentally ran into him in the forest. A fellow American who asks her if she is [=ADAM=] and tells her that his code name is Snake, she shows being GenreSavvy and gambles it, claiming her name is EVA. Which is precisely the code name of [=ADAMs=] partner, so Snake no longer questions her about not knowing the password.]]

* In ''BeingThere'', the first person Chance, the gardener gets to know at length outside of his old home -- and garden -- is a woman named ''Eve'' Rand. In the novella, this symbolism was in-obvious; her full name was Elizabeth Eve Rand, and she was usually referred to as "EE". In the film, this was changed, probably because [[PragmaticAdaptation "EE" would have sounded weird onscreen]] -- though the RuleOfSymbolism likely played a part in ''which'' name she would use.
* In ''UnderworldAwakening'' [[spoiler:Selene and Michael's daughter is named Eve]], although she isn't called it in the movie. Her name only appears in the end credits.

* Defied in ''Series/PennyDreadful'', where Frankenstein says that "Adam" is a dumb name for his creation. This is a reference to the fact that Mary Shelley would call the creature from ''Literature/{{Frankenstein}}'' "Adam."
