* In a sort of ''negative'' way, "No Bugles No Drums" by G. Gilmore was reportedly named this way by a witty publishing agent who came to aid of the author when he was struggling with a proper title for his work. She asked him if there was anything in the book about bugles or drums. When the confused Gilmore said that there wasn't a word about either of those things in it, fpr it was the life story of the marathon runner Peter Snell, she smiled and said that it was the perfect title then.

Added DiffLines:

* The All Terrain-series of [[SpiderTank walkers]] from ''Franchise/StarWars'', on multiple levels. They were called walkers because they moved on legs instead than wheels, threads or repulsors. The third and fourth letter in the popular name of any walker described their purpose (AT-ST, for example, was a Scout Transport, while the famed AT-AT was an Armored Transport, armoured enough that normal ground artillery couldn't damage it). Finally, the first and second letter stood for "All Terrain"... And ''Film/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' showed the AT-TE, usually fielded on flat terrain, used in multiple odd terrains, such as mountain but ''vertically'' and ''outer space''.
** Similarly, the SPHA-series of walkers. SPHA stands for '''S'''elf-'''P'''ropelled '''H'''eavy '''A'''rtillery and they're just that, vehicles that carry artillery heavy enough to take on ''starships'', with an additional letter specifying what kind of artillery (the SPHA-T has a turbolaser, the SPHA-I has an ion cannon, the SPHA-V has an anti-vehicle laser, the SPHA-C carries concussion missiles, and the SPHA-M has a mass driver).
