* UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler seemed to have some sort of affinity for wolves, possibly because his own name is derived from the Old Germanic ''Athalwolf'' ("noble wolf"). The majority of his official residences/bunkers were named after wolves, most notably the Wolf's Lair in East Prussia. He used "wolf" as a personal nickname in his early days. And when he financially supported his sister Paula after he became Chancellor, he requested that she live under the assumed name "Paula Wolff".

* In ''Series/{{Neighbours}}'', regular character Jarrod "Toadfish" Rebecchi got his nickname by analogy with his [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome long forgotten]] older brother Kevin "Stonefish" Rebecchi. Later storylines introduced his cousins: Scott "Stingray" Timmins and Wayne "Tadpole" Reeves.

Later storylines introduced his cousins: Scott "Stingray" Timmins (the rest of his side of the family never got their own) and Wayne "Tadpole" Reeves.Reeves (his adoptive sister Gemma was occasionally called Gemfish, and their mother's actual name was Coral). Later, Toadie's adopted son Callum would be nicknamed Squid, while his and Sonya's daughter was named Jellyfish before she was born (and has since been called Nellyfish).

* Australia's national sports teams are often named after AustralianWildlife, particularly kangaroos (if not, they'll probably use RockThemeNaming).

** The Mink Tribe are a race of PettingZooPeople whose names are frequently puns on their species. However how obvious the puns are depends on your native language. An English speaker will immediately catch the pun behind a rabbit girl named Carrot, but are unlikely to make anything out of a dog woman named Wanda unless they know "wan" is the Japanese onomatopoeia for barking.

* A number of [[WorldInTheSky Skyloft's]] citizens in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' have bird-inspired names. Pipit and Piper are two species of birds. Fledge is a term meaning a young bird. Groose and Orielle are similar to "Grouse"/"Goose" and "Oriole". Instructor Owlan's name, obviously, has "Owl" in it, and Sparrot and Parrow could swap the last letters in their names to make "Parrot" and "Sparrow".

** The last US submarine named for a fish or other sea animal was the USS ''Cavalla'', launched in 1972 and decommissioned in 1998. (Unless you consider US Navy Admiral Hyman G. Rickover a "sea animal"; a submarine named after him is currently under construction.) Currently active US submarines are nearly all named after US cities or states.
