* Constable Crabtree's massively numbered aunts in ''Series/MurdochMysteries''. In one episode, Murdoch asks how many aunts he has: "Well let's see, there's Aunt Amaryllis, Aunt Aster, Aunt Azalea, Aunt Begonia, Aunt Briony..." These were just A's and B's. Fifteen identified: Aunt Amaryllis, Aunt Aster, Aunt Azalea, Aunt Begonia, Aunt Briony, Aunt Clematis, Aunt Dahlia (though George managed to pronounce just "Dahl-" before he's cut off), Aunt Hyacinth, Aunt Iris, Aunt Ivy, Aunt Lily, Aunt Marigold, Aunt Nettle, Aunt Petunia, Aunt Primrose. The ones mentioned most often are Aunt Iris, Aunt Primrose, Aunt Petunia or Aunt Begonia.
** An Aunt Nettle is mentioned in a later episode. And it turns out that the Aunts aren't technically aunts, but a group of prostitutes who adopted the names as a selling point.

* In both the original and the remake of ''Film/TheWickerMan'' the citizens of Summerisle all have plant names to reflect their Pagan religion, including rare male examples like Ash, Oak, and Alder. (This is especially noticeable when Howie is [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wicker_names_2784.jpg browsing the list of students]] at the school.) While in the remake it's Lampshaded with the page quote, in the original Howie remarks on it when he looks up the death certificates for the family of the missing girl.
