* Ubuntu does as well, this time combined with AnimalThemeNaming and AddedAlliterativeAppeal. Each release is given a two-word name consisting of an adjective and an animal both starting with the same letter, with each new release being the next letter from the previous one. For instance, versions 16.04, 16.10, and 17.04 are named Xenial Xerus, Yakkety Yak, and Zesty Zapus, and version 17.10 plans to loop back around to the beginning of the alphabet with its name Artful Aardvark.

* In ''Franchise/StarTrek,'' originally all male Vulcans had five-letter names that begin with "S" and end with "k;" this was supposed to be in honor of Surak, who began [[PlanetOfHats their philosophy of logic]]. Females had names that began with "T'," like T'Pau. Over time these rules have been relaxed, though; you get [[GenderBlenderNames names that use the opposite sex's rules]] or totally different ones, like Tuvok (male).

** The letter "Z" seems to be common in those born into the Fire Nation Royal Family (Sozin, Ozai, Zuko, Azula, [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra Izumi]]). Iroh and Lu-Ten are exceptions.
** "K" or hard "Q" sounds seem to pop up often in Water Tribe members, too (Sokka, Katara, Hakoda, Kanna, Kya, Pakku, Kuruk). The sequel series brings us Korra, Yakone, Noatak, Tarrlok, Tonraq, Unalaq, Eska, and Varrick.
