** Rinne also named and modeled her Intelligent device Scuderia after her late grandfather's keepsake which she couldn't save from being damaged.



** Fanfics for the [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist 2003 anime]] use the above ideas often but also include Ed naming his daughter after "Winry" or Rose naming her son "Edward". Neither die in the series however the fact that they're split apart in separate universes leaves the same effect.

* Ryan tries this in ''Series/{{Castle}}'' when he thinks he and Esposito are going to die trapped in a building while his wife is in labor. He tells his wife to name their baby "Javier" if it's a boy, after his best friend. Esposito immediately counters with [[CrowningMomentOfFunny "You're going to name a white Irish kid 'Javier'"?]]

* In the ''Pirates of the Savage Sea'' expansion of ''Videogame/HeroesOfMightAndMagic'' ''VI'', Crag Hack's campaign ends with him reconciling with Jon Morgan, the paladin pursuing him whom he earlier discovered was his son by his late former lover Anne "Spitfire" Morgan. Jon reveals that he's about to become a father himself. Crag suggests the name "Anne" if the baby is a girl. Jon says he and his wife already agreed to do that, but warns his father that his wife insists on naming the baby after ''her'' father Rufus (a baron Crag once humiliated in the past) if he's a boy. Crag is rather surprised to discover that his son married the daughter of an old foe of his.

* [=Davan McIntire=] of ''Webcomic/SomethingPositive'' is named for his grandfather's cousin, who was killed quite graphically in the early 40s. The elder Davan was also the star of a SpinOff strip running 70 years in the past, though it's been dormant for years. Davan's father Fred also had a wife and son who were killed prior to his marrying Davan's mother, and some fans thought that perhaps Davan was named for his dead half-brother; the author of the comic basically said that was too twisted even for his work.

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' spoofs this while at the same time providing a possible explanation for one of the show's most famous running gags. In one episode, Kenny's mother announces she is pregnant, which causes Kenny to become extremely worried that he is being replaced. By the end of the episode, Kenny has died ([[TheyKilledKennyAgain as usual]]) and his mom delivers a son who looks exactly like him. In honor of their departed son, they name the baby Kenny. At which point Kenny's dad remarks that "this is like the fiftieth time this has happened." To which his wife replies, "Fifty-second." And if you're wondering how come baby Kenny is an eight year old Kenny again? Don't worry, there was another episode that explained THAT too.

* The cat owned by ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' is named "Snowball II" after a similar cat who died after being hit by a car. One episode was actually about Snowball II dying as a result of her being hit by another car, and being replaced by Snowballs III and IV, whom both died as well (the former drowned, while the latter fell out of a window). The episode ends with Lisa coming upon a black cat that looked ''exactly'' like Snowball II and names it Snowball V, but then changes her mind and decides to call the cat Snowball II "to save on a new cat dish." Principal Skinner witnesses the whole thing and comments that that's cheating, but after Lisa retorts, "I guess you're right, [[StatusQuoIsGod Principal Tamzarian]]" he quickly gives in.

*** Queen Victoria actually insisted to all nine of her children that ''every grandchild'' had to have either Albert (for boys) or Victoria (for girls) as one of their middle names. Since the majority of her grandchildren were born after the death of her husband, all of them who had a middle name of Albert fit this trope.

His Distinguished Service Cross upgraded to a Medal of Honor in 2014 after years of campaigning from a childhood friend.
