* ''WesternAnimation/StrangeMagic'' has this as a result of being a JukeboxMusical set in a fantasy universe. Characters named after song titles with real world names (Marianne, Dawn) coexist with characters whose names are more titles than actual names (Sugar Plum Fairy, the Bog King).
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Home}}'':

** Several one-shot Boovs have names like Tony.

* A literal example: ComicStrip/{{Garfield}} once met three rats Every real-world analogue character in ''TabletopGame/DamnationDecade'' has a bizarre name, and they're really bizarre, like the authors were pulling random nouns from a hat to generate names (Ampersand Vole, [[UsefulNotes/JimmyCarter Quantrill Biscuit]]). The most reasonable-sounding names include Stanton Spobeck's secretary Ethel Ambrose Pratt, host of ''Beyond the Barrier'' [[Creator/LeonardNimoy Herman Purvis]], and musician Edmund Fitzgerald, famous for a song about the sinking of the ore freighter ''Music/GordonLightfoot''.
* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' manuals specifically have content for deciding whether players should choose realistic or exotic names, and how the [[GameMaster Dungeon Master]] should deal with players who don't want their characters' names to be consistent with the types of names the other players choose.
** Otherwise known as the [[Series/FreaksAndGeeks Carlos the]] [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame Dwarf]] scenario.
** In 4E, it's stated that most tieflings have "traditional" names like Amnon and Nemeia, while others choose hilariously over-the-top names like Poetry or Despair. Throw in some other races and you can have a party consisting of Wil, Jon, Bree, and Torment, and that's just using the sample names.
** In the TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms, naming conventions are different for different races. Notably, halflings tend to have common English names, which stand out as this trope alongside the Nordic-sounding dwarf names and wholly-fantastic elvish names.
** Warforged in ''TabletopGame/{{Eberron}}'' were created without names, only numerical designations. As they realized names make it easier to socialize with other races, they have begun taking some, or having names given to them by people they interact with, but without any fixed pattern, this can be generic name humans/elves/dwarves/some other races would use, a word for a concept they feel fits them (Bulwark, Vanguard, [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast the Lord of Blades]]), the name of an object, or even words that aren't in common. Some Warforged also retain their numerical designation as they still look for an "ideal" name.
** Untwisted in not just ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' and ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'', but many games which use a FantasyCounterpartCulture in some manner. Suppose a fantasy game uses an analog to Spain, so the names sound exotic like Eugenia, Arcelia, Allewyn the elf, and Kolgran the dwarf. You've averted Aerith and Bob right until a friend at the table says, "Arcelia's my niece's name." This can happen with pretty much any culture. Vasily and Koichi sound like Aerith, but if you speak Russian and Japanese, they suddenly become Bob.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'' has very diverse naming conventions. People in the Realm, namely the nobles, mostly call their children by some (sometimes vaguely Japanese or Chinese-sounding) name made of several meaningless syllables, with a family surname added before the first name (i.e. Cynis Denovah Avaku, Peleps Deled, Tepet Ejava). In the Threshold, however, since there are hundreds upon hundreds of different kingdoms, there are millions of different names, depending on the region. Alongside random alphabet soup, a very common naming convention is Adjective Noun (Harmonious Jade, Magnificent Garden). So you get a circle (party) of people with names like Panther, Dace, Harmonious Jade, Swan and Arianna. Some characters have [[NameThatUnfoldsLikeLotusBlossom Names That Unfold Like Lotus Blossoms]], such as Fearless in Battle's Face. The above are justified, as they all come from different parts of the world, but still an example of this trope. But then there are characters with random RealLife names thrown in for no apparent reason: Joseph, Anja, Tobias, Lyta... it's a bit jarring.
* The Shakespearean RPG ''[[{{TabletopGame/Forsooth}} Forsooth!]]'' encourages mixing in a few common (or silly) English names, regardless of the setting--like how ''Theatre/AMidsummerNightsDream'' was set in ancient Greece but had a character
named Rip, Juanita, and--yes--Bob.
Bottom.
* In ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'', Snoopy's brothers are named Spike, Marbles, Olaf…and Andy. There's also a ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'', major characters tend to have names like Urza or Lim-Dul. This makes names like Peter Douglas (a minor character from Fallen Empires) seem incredibly strange. Occasionally, this is played for laughs. For example, one short story had a demonic dark lord named "5".Vincent who employed a human chef named Asmoranomardicadaistinaculdacar.
** The Gatewatch itself creates an Aerith and Bob situation. We have normal names such as Chandra, Jace and Liliana alongside more exotic names like Ajani, Nissa and Gideon (whose name is actually Kytheon).
** The crew of the skyship ''Weatherlight'', which was the focus of the story for quite some time, consisted of Tahngarth, Squee, Ertai, Crovax, Mirri, Sisay, Gerrard and Hanna. Sisay is the interesting one; her name does exist in the real world, but it seems to be a predominantly male name.
* Names in ''TabletopGame/{{Paranoia}}'' follow the pattern (first name + security clearance + home sector + clone number), ranging from ordinary first names with an arbitrary suffix (John-R-CQF-2) to silly puns (Howe-R-YAH-3) depending on the GM's preferred style: Straight avoids silly names (they break the mood), Zap revels in them, Classic is somewhere in between.
* While not a fantasy setting in the traditional sense, the ''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'' book "Grimoire of Grimoires" has a grimoire take the form of a black metal/industrial album put together by a band called Schattenbahn. The band's lineup is Blixa Dark, Hellson, Regenfeuer, Doktor Kultur... and Andy.

The exception is Oko San, whose name roughly translates to 'Mr. Millet' - a cutsey name for a pet bird. This is because Oko San is [[TributeToFido a fictionalised version of the developer's pet pigeon, Okosan]].

And then you have [[OddNameOut Battler]], which is neither Japanese nor a normal English name. And that doesn't even get into the magical characters, who range from anything to biblical to odd, meaningful names. Just for an example, Umineko contains characters named Rosa, Genji, Lucifer, Lambdadelta and [[OddNameOut George]].

Vasily and Koichi sound like Aerith, but if you speak Russian and Japanese, they suddenly become Bob.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'' has very diverse naming conventions. People in the Realm, namely the nobles, mostly call their children by some (sometimes vaguely Japanese or Chinese-sounding) name made of several meaningless syllables, with a family surname added before the first name (i.e. Cynis Denovah Avaku, Peleps Deled, Tepet Ejava). In the Threshold, however, since there are hundreds upon hundreds of different kingdoms, there are millions of different names, depending on the region. Alongside random alphabet soup, a very common naming convention is Adjective Noun (Harmonious Jade, Magnificent Garden). So you get a circle (party) of people with names like Panther, Dace, Harmonious Jade, Swan and Arianna. Some characters have [[NameThatUnfoldsLikeLotusBlossom Names That Unfold Like Lotus Blossoms]], such as Fearless in Battle's Face. The above are justified, as they all come from different parts of the world, but still an example of this trope. But then there are characters with random RealLife names thrown in for no apparent reason: Joseph, Anja, Tobias, Lyta... it's a bit jarring.
* The Shakespearean RPG ''[[{{TabletopGame/Forsooth}} Forsooth!]]'' encourages mixing in a few common (or silly) English names, regardless of the setting--like how ''Theatre/AMidsummerNightsDream'' was set in ancient Greece but had a character named Bottom.
* In ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'', major characters tend to have names like Urza or Lim-Dul. This makes names like Peter Douglas (a minor character from Fallen Empires) seem incredibly strange. Occasionally, this is played for laughs. For example, one short story had a demonic dark lord named Vincent who employed a human chef named Asmoranomardicadaistinaculdacar.
** The Gatewatch itself creates an Aerith and Bob situation. We have normal names such as Chandra, Jace and Liliana alongside more exotic names like Ajani, Nissa and Gideon (whose name is actually Kytheon).
** The crew of the skyship ''Weatherlight'', which was the focus of the story for quite some time, consisted of Tahngarth, Squee, Ertai, Crovax, Mirri, Sisay, Gerrard and Hanna. Sisay is the interesting one; her name does exist in the real world, but it seems to be a predominantly male name.
* Names in ''TabletopGame/{{Paranoia}}'' follow the pattern (first name + security clearance + home sector + clone number), ranging from ordinary first names with an arbitrary suffix (John-R-CQF-2) to silly puns (Howe-R-YAH-3) depending on the GM's preferred style: Straight avoids silly names (they break the mood), Zap revels in them, Classic is somewhere in between.
* While not a fantasy setting in the traditional sense, the ''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'' book "Grimoire of Grimoires" has a grimoire take the form of a black metal/industrial album put together by a band called Schattenbahn. The band's lineup is Blixa Dark, Hellson, Regenfeuer, Doktor Kultur... and Andy.

[[folder: Toys ]]
* In Franchise/{{LEGO}}'s ''{{Toys/Slizers}}'' series, all the characters have elemental or generic, sci-fi sounding names (Torch, Scuba, Amazon, Blaster, Robotops, etc), and then there's Hiker Mike. Granted, he was a fan-created model, but LEGO has approved him into official canon.
* Toys/BeanieBabies run the gamut from cartoony names like "Pinchers the Lobster" or "Squealer the Pig" to common names like "Erin" (an Irish bear), "Scottie" (a Scottish terrier), etc.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* ''VisualNovel/HatofulBoyfriend'' gives the birds mostly normal-sounding Japanese names, with two characters having {{Punny Name}}s that aren't all that outrageous [[spoiler: that are actually fake names - their real names are ordinary Japanese names]], and one character going by an intentionally ridiculous fake name, Anghel Higure, that he presumably made up himself thanks to his [[DaydreamBeliever poor grip on reality]] (his real name being the ordinary-sounding Akagi Yoshio). The exception is Oko San, whose name roughly translates to 'Mr. Millet' - a cutsey name for a pet bird. This is because Oko San is [[TributeToFido a fictionalised version of the developer's pet pigeon, Okosan]].
* ''VisualNovel/MajorMinor'' has this in quite a few spots too - you have characters named Konrad, Jade, Max, and Eddie, and then there's names like Endymion, Velasquez, Nagi, Nemi, Rook and Acheron, to name a few. The Player can add to this, [[HelloInsertNameHere given that they can enter in their character's first and last name.]]
* ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' has this all over the place [[JustifiedTrope thanks to the fact that Kinzo felt the need to give his children and grandchildren western names, due to his obsession with Western culture.]] Outside of the family a number of servants and Kinzo himself have Japanese names. And then you have [[OddNameOut Battler]], which is neither Japanese nor a normal English name. And that doesn't even get into the magical characters, who range from anything to biblical to odd, meaningful names. Just for an example, Umineko contains characters named Rosa, Genji, Lucifer, Lambdadelta and [[OddNameOut George]]. Plus, more directly, the main Ushiromiya siblings each (Presumably Rosa too, though her husband is unnamed) have a spouse with a Japanese name: Krauss/Natsuhi, Eva/Hideyoshi, and Rudolf/Kyrie.
* Most of the names in ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' are puns or references to their personalities, so a lot of variety turns up. You'll get first names like Miles and Larry mixing with Klavier and Phoenix, and last names like Armstrong and Wright mixing with Eldoon and Cadaverini.

[[folder: Web Animation]]
* In ''Card Players'' almost every other character's name sticks out for them to be living in modern New York. However, most of them are actually from different countries.
** The main characters (in order of the normality of their names) Tom, Elliot, Tabby, Mikira, Ulan...and Yumeria [[spoiler: (though her real name is Elena)]].
* In ''WebAnimation/CowOfTheWild'', there is a wide variety of names, from Alari, Terok, Balder, and Kahleel to Fang, Midnight, Sammy, and Millie.
* Character names in ''WebAnimation/DSBTInsaniT'' range from Koden and Killdra to Alex and Bill.
* ''WebAnimation/CheatCommandos'' has Fightgar, Crackotage, Silent Rip, Firebert, Gunhaver, Flashfight, Ripberger, Foxface, Reinforcements, and Reynold. Reynold is named last as an obvious joke, being the nerdy non-combative Commando.
* ''WebAnimation/{{Dreamscape}}'' has character names like Vladmare, Keela, and Izane, as well as Ethan, Dylan, and Melissa.
* ''WebAnimation/WeeblAndBob''.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LRtKAQJUc3g This]] animation by [=DarkMatter2525=] starts out with a caveman announcing that he is going hunting with Kumba-Kumba the Mammoth Rider, Ragnar the Bear Killer and Bob.
* ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' has an odd, downright comedic name on each of the title's teams: Sarge, Grif, Simmons, Lopez and ''Donut'' are the Reds; and the Blues, Church, Tucker, and ''Caboose'' (even later additions Tex, Sister and Washington don't seem as weird).
* ''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 [[BigGood 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.
* The cast of WebAnimation/SakuraTheAngelSailerGod comprises of Sakura, Nigi, Shibo, Kojo, Storm, Gan... and Fred.

[[folder: Web Original]]
* In general, any online community where some people refer to themselves by their real names, and others are only known by their pseudonym. How long they've spent together, how comfortable they are with each other, and their level of preferred privacy factor heavily into it. Some people may start off being known only by their pseudonyms, but switch to their real names once they've known the rest of the group long enough.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has names like "Applejack", "Celestia", "Spitfire", and "Rainbow Dash" being common. However there are occasionally 'normal' names like "Trixie", "(Pony/Donut) Joe", and "Babs". ''MyLittlePony'' had this in the toys, several ponies having normal names. There is also the main character Pinkie Pie, whose middle name is Diane--the only example of a "normal" name amongst the Mane Six.
** Even so, Trixie is a stage magician and thus performs magic ''tricks,'' so the name is fitting even if the pun is kind of blah. Babs' full name is Babs Seed, as in "bad seed."
** In Season 1 Many fans noticed that ponies from Ponyville and Canterlot had the rather exotic-sounding names while characters from elsewhere, such as Trixie and Gilda, had actual real life names, and suggested that the exotic name thing was a regional naming thing/. It was soon {{Jossed}} for the most part, although griffons tend to have either Germanic or European names save for "Grandpa Gruff" (which could be a nickname).
** ''Granny Smith'' & ''Big [=McIntosh=]'' sound "human" (even if they're really apple-themed names like ''Applejack'' & ''Applebloom''. [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Granny_Smith "Granny Smith"]] & [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McIntosh_%28apple%29 "[=McIntosh=]"]] are varieties of apple).
