* In ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'', we have names that went from originally normal like Lucy, Bobby, Luan, and Clyde to downright "made-up" like Rusty Spokes, Lori, Leni, Lane, Leif, Lexx, Linka, and Loni. There's also a unisex name for both boys and girls like Lynn being named after her father.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' Remnant is an eclectic mixture of people with names from various different cultures or words in various languages, and some from none at all. This includes characters with traditional names such as Ruby, Blake or Nora, and characters with names based on recognisable languages or mythological beings, such as Weiss (German for 'white'), Jaune (French for 'yellow') and Pyrrha (a name borrowed by Achilles). However, the Beacon headmaster's name is Ozpin, a made-up name reflecting that the character's inspiration comes from the the Wizard in ''Literature/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz'' whose name is Oscar Zoroaster Phadrig Isaac Norman Henkle Emmannuel Ambroise Diggs (O.Z.P.I.N.H.E.A.D.). The in-universe justification for the variety of names is that the world experienced a terrible global war from which freedom of expression has become one of the planet's most cherished gifts... something Ozpin's name [[MysteriousPast mysteriously]] does not conform to.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' has an eclectic mix of names from multiple real world cultures. Probably best exemplified by half-sisters Ruby Rose and Yang Xiao Long. This is given a justification in-universe: The Great War was fought against a dictatorship which stifled art, culture and personal expression. Long after the war was fought and won, people continue to give exotic names to their children so they remember what they fought and died for. Hence why all the protagonists are named after colours.

** The Queen had Maisy in her nest of names, and the King had Sidney. Each time, the Herald is asked by someone (a little girl for the queen, and the entire chorus for the king) to confirm that, yes, that is one of their names.
*** Those are the names that the King and Queen use when they are alone together. It's very endearing.
