* The whole plane of Innistrad of Magic the Gathering live by this trope. It makes sense when you consider that the extension is condensing all tropes of a gothic horror story.

* Sirius Black from ''Literature/HarryPotter''.
** Pretty much everyone in the Black and Malfoy families has a name like this. Nymphadora Tonks might be a humorous lampshade, since she has the kind of name a fanfic Sue might have and she [[EmbarrassingFirstName hates it]]. In fact, when questioned why she doesn't go by her middle name, Rowling answered that it was Vulpecula. Seriously, bad naming is InTheBlood or something, since Nymphadora's mother (Andromeda) was the WhiteSheep of the family and she still followed the tradition.

* In ''WesternAnimation/SixTeen'' Jude's girlfriend Star goes through a goth phase and changes her name to Nebula. Later, in an effort to keep their relationship going, Jude also turns goth for the day and says his name is now Judas.
* On ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama,'' [[PerkyGoth Gwen]] is an {{Aversion}}, but in the TDI special she mentions three of her friends named Reaper, Pixie Corpse and Marilyn. (The latter may be an OddNameOut a la Characters/TheMunsters or a reference to Music/MarilynManson.) From their pictures they all seem more into the {{Goth}} culture than Gwen is.
