Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBlazingBlade'', the ladies of House Caelin all have "lyn" somewhere in their names. There's Lord Hausen's late wife '''Lyn'''dis, their daughter Made'''lyn''', and Madelyn's daughter, the game's {{Tritagonist}}, also named '''Lyn'''dis, although she often goes by just Lyn for short.
** Also, Hector's daughter in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBindingBlade'' is named Li'''lin'''a, which means that if you paired Hector and Lyndis, the naming theme continues. Subverted if you pair Lyndis with Rath, because Rath's daughter in ''Binding Blade'' is named Sue.

** Many named Hyuuga have names that begin with "H." Hiashi, Hizashi, Hinata, and Hanabi all have the same first letter, though Neji does not. [[spoiler:Hinata's]] daughter Himawari is half-Hyuuga and fits the tradition.
*** Himawari's older brother Boruto also sort of fits, as "bo" is the voiced version of "ho" (i.e. it has dakuten next to it) in Japanese syllabary.

* Several of the ExpandedUniverse oneshots of ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' have done this with the Blackthorn Dragon Clan, at least on the male side. Starting from the canonical example of Lance, later oneshots have featured his grandfather Javelin, his father Halberd, his uncles Sibat and Trishula and his granduncle Yari. All of these names are related to spear-like weapons.
