* ''Manga/DetectiveConan'': The most notable example is Shuichi Akai. "Akai" means "red" and many chapters and cases he appears have "red" or "scarlet" in the title. Overall, his name is a ShoutOut to both Char Aznable himself from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam, who is nicknamed "Red Comet" due to his red [[HumongousMecha Zaku]], and to Char's seiyuu Creator/ShuichiIkeda. Shuichi Akai eventually becomes TheDanza.

* From the AubreyMaturin series: Aubrey and his friend and fellow post-captain Heneage Dundas discuss the captain of ''HMS Iris'', who not only wants to dress his bargemen in the colors of the rainbow (due to the connotation of his ships name), but specifically seeks out sailors ''named'' for said colors: e.g., with surnames like "Scarlett," "White," or "Green." He offered Dundas a brass "chaser" cannon in exchange for one of his sailors whose name was Blew. (Dundas declined, sharing with Aubrey a dislike for "costumed" bargemen.)
* In ''Literature/WarriorCats'', the first part of cats' names come from things a forest cat would know, such as plants, animals, and natural objects. They also use a lot of colors - every basic color except purple and pink. They even use some more unusual colors, such as "golden", "silver", "copper", "russet", "tawny", "amber", and "fallow". Oddly enough, out of 750-ish characters, "white" is the most common prefix of all, and even "fallow" got used about five times, but "brown" only got used once, and the cat in question disappeared from the cast list before recieving his warrior name.
