** There's also Pinkie Pie's sisters: Marble Pie and Limestone Pie. Don't see the theme in their names? [[https://twitter.com/gmberrow/status/658484541716340736 Maybe this will help.]] In general, their family also follows a rock theme, with Maud Pie [[note]] i.e., Mud Pie[[/note]], and their parents Igneous Rock and Cloudy Quartz.
** Twilight's family shows this as well, following a light theme: ''Twilight Sparkle'' is the most obvious, but there's also ''Shining'' Armor, ''Twilight'' Velvet, and Night ''Light''.

* In Ann M. Martin's ''Ten Kids, No Pets'', each of the children's names follow letters of the alphabet. In fact, they're named in order of their birth order/order of names in the baby book (i.e., the 1st child is given the 1st name under A, the 2nd child is given the 2nd name listed under B, etc.)

This has lead to most of them having extreme unusual names, such as Bainbridge (second child), Calandra, Dagwood, Eberhard, Faustine, Gardenia and Janthina with only eldest Abigail, eighth-born Hannah and ninth-born Ira having normal names. Several of them shorten their names to something more standard but Bainbridge doesn't have that luxury.

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': The Kholin family has two.
** Gavilar and his brother Dalinar are both three syllables, with the third ending in ''-ar''. Gavilar continued this theme with his son Elhokar, but Dalinar went a different direction.
** Dalinar's sons are Adolin and Renarin, three syllables with the third ending in ''-in''. For bonus points, this fits with the family name as well. Furthermore, Kaladin (who is unofficially adopted by the family) shares the theme.
