** Inverted for humorous effect in ''Discworld/CarpeJugulum'', which introduces the idea of reverse-EmoTeen vampires who play at being normal people in the way goths play at being vampires/creatures of darkness. Thus, they call themselves mundane names in the way a human would take one of these names.

-->'''Countess:''' Lady Strigoiul said her daughter has taken to calling herself Wendy. I can't imagine why she'd want to, when Hieroglyphica is such a ''nice'' name for a girl.

In fiction, a [[MeaningfulName character's name is often tied to their personality]]. And, let's face it, it's hard to sound [[DarkIsEdgy dark and edgy]] with a cheery name like "Stacey Merryweather", or even an ordinary one like "Amy Jones". {{Goth}}s and other [[DarkIsNotEvil shadowy characters]] in fiction tend to have dark-tinted {{Awesome McCool Name}}s. Usually, they have these names from birth, although, a goth with an [[EmbarrassingFirstName inappropriately cheerful name]] may [[MeaningfulRename change their name]], or insist on people calling them by a nickname. Many goths also tend to have an exotic middle name or three.
