* A common but strongly discouraged practice in roleplaying games is for the {{Munchkin}} to name their new character after their old dead character. If Dudefella gets croaked by an Orc, another character with the exact same skills named "Dudefella II" appears to replace him! How amazing!

** ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows'' features such winners as the Potter siblings, James [[WordOfGod Sirius]], Lily [[WordOfGod Luna]] (at least ''[[EnsembleDarkhorse she]]'' didn't die) and ''Albus'' ''Severus'' (that's a mouthful, but at least he goes by Al), as well as the orphaned son of Lupin and Tonks, whose name is Ted after Tonks' (dead) father. Supplementary information from Rowling says George even named his son after Fred (naming your son after your own dead twin seems rather awkward... but then, not more awkward than marrying said dead twin's girlfriend). Averted with Ron and Hermione's children, who are named Rose and Hugo, with no "Rose" or "Hugo" ever mentioned on either the Weasley or Granger side.
