Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman'':
** The Sugarmans, Beatrice's family side, has this as their surname due to their FamilyBusiness, similar to the Apples example above. Special mention goes for [=CrackerJack=] Sugarman, Beatrice's [[spoiler:deceased]] older brother. It also functions as a bitterly IronicName since their history....is ''[[BigScrewedUpFamily less]]'' [[BigScrewedUpFamily than sweet]].
** Their peers, the Creamermans, also shared this trait, mainly due to their surname related to their company of dairy products and the facts they're all goats.
** Butterscotch Horseman, Beatrice's husband and [=BoJack=]'s father, has this as well.

* ''A Dark and Stormy Entry'' has a variety of different endings depending on what you choose from the numbered menu. In one of the sillier endings the player character decides to write a cheese-themed story, resulting in hero Prince Gruyere and his love interest Mozzarella, advisor Lord Parmagiano, magician-in-disguise Ardrahan, the enigmatic Roquefort and the villainous Processed Cheez Food.

* ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'' has vampire sisters named Moka/Mocha and Kokoa/Cocoa, their elder Karua/Kahlua, and their adopted (and thus named not quite to theme) sister Akua/Aqua. Just about the whole family is part of the theme naming father Issa(lit. "one [cup of] tea"), Kahlua and Kokoa's mother Gyokuro (a type of green tea), and dog Earl Grey.

Added DiffLines:

* Surnames in ''LightNovel/HeavyObject'' are names of cocktails, the one exception being Sarasa Gleamshifter whose last name is merely based on the gloom lifter cocktail. More specifically, Legitimacy Kingdom names are brandy based drinks, Information Alliance names are gin based drinks, Capitalist Corporations names are rum based drinks, and Faith Organization names are whiskey based drinks. There's also one exception to these themes: Wydine Uptown, as that [[spoiler:was a fake name taken by an Information Alliance agent while pretending to be from the Capitalist Corporations]].
