* Some of the ships of the Royal Navy conform this pattern, for instance three battle-cruisers built in in World War 1 that were converted to aircraft carriers were HMS Furious, Glorious and Corageious.
* Some shipping lines use(d) this pattern, e. g. The White Star Line used names ending in "-ic" (Titanic, Olympic, Britannic) while Cunard, at least until the launching of the ''RMS Queen Mary'', used names ending in "-ia" (Caronia, Mauretania, Lusitania).[[note]]The Cunard Line is the only shipping company still providing regular passenger service between New York and Southampton, operating the ''RMS Queen Mary 2'' on a regular transatlantic schedule.[[/note]]

* ''Literature/JustSoStories'': In "How the First Letter Was Written", the Neolithic family consists of father '''T'''eg'''umai''' Bopsul'''ai''', mother '''T'''esh'''umai''' '''T'''ewindrow and daughter '''T'''affi'''mai''' Me'''t'''allu'''mai'''. Within the story Creator/RudyardKipling has a bit of fun when he lists the leadership of the Tribe of Tegumai with a flurry of alliterations and assonances:
--> Behind them came the Head Chief, the Vice-Chief, the Deputy and Assistant Chiefs (all armed to the upper teeth), the Hetmans and Heads of Hundreds, Platoffs and their Platoons, and Domans with their Detachments; Woons, Neguses and Akhoonds ranking in the rear (still armed to the teeth).
