** 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.
