* In the ''Franchise/{{Dune}}'' series, Paul Atreides names his first son Leto after his martyred father. After the younger Leto is similarly martyred, Paul also names his second son Leto, after the firstborn. His fate was somewhat less sucky. Somewhat.
** He becomes God-Emperor and extends his lifespan to three and a half millennia. In the CrapsackWorld of the ''Franchise/{{Dune}}'' universe, that comes as close to positive outcome as is likely.
*** Except for how crappy the power of prescience ends up being, which is well-documented by quotes from both Paul and Leto II.
** Paul himself is [=KindaSorta=] named after his grandfather Paulus.
