* ''VideoGame/SandsOfDestruction'' enjoys a double-dose of blending with the names of its two leads, playing off their MasculineGirlFeminineBoy tendencies: ** Kyrie is a kind AllLovingHero who [[FeminineWomenCanCook is a kitchen whiz]] and [[TheChick wants nothing more than for everyone to get along]] so he can be with his LoveInterest instead of worrying about the end of the world. In Greek, Kyrie means "Lord" and is normally used [[ReligiousAndMythologicalThemeNaming in reference to]] JesusChrist (this Kyrie is an AntiAntiChrist, supposed to cause the end of the world but ''really'' not up for it). In modern English, however, that "ie" ending looks feminine, so it's considered a unisex name at most. ** Morte is, by contrast, a BloodKnight and a bit AxCrazy; she's ''all for'' the end of the world (at least until she realizes that she's [[LoveRedeems fallen for Kyrie]] and [[WhatWouldXDo he doesn't want to, so she'll agree it's a bad idea]] - life with him is fun and WorthLivingFor, after all). And while [[WhoNamesTheirKidDude most parents wouldn't give a name]] meaning "[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Death]]" to a child of ''either'' gender, most personifications of the GrimReaper are male. However, when you go back to the original Latin, ''morte'' was a female-gendered word. Likewise, while Morte may enjoy destruction, she's a LadyOfWar and [[PinkIsFeminine prefers hot pink skirts]]; don't you dare mistake her for OneOfTheGuys in that regard. * ''VideoGame/WorldsDawn'' has a little boy named Bloom. While that isn't exactly a common name, most names associated with flowers are for girls.

* The Soldier in ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' is apparently named Jane Doe. Probably due to this, he insists on a note on his door that he should be addressed ''[[InsistentTerminology Mister]]'' Jane Doe to avoid gender confusion by the name. Also, due to the Soldier being somewhat of a paranoid nutcase and "Jane Doe" being commonly used to refer to a female of unknown identity, it's likely that this a pseudonym. If it is, that means that not only was the name chosen on purpose, he chose it for himself!

* Music/SkidRow bassist Rachel Bolan, born James Southworth. The Bolan comes from T-Rex vocalist Marc Bolan, while the Rachel part may be because feminine-sounding names for a male musician were quite a thing in the glam metal scene, thus Rachel being more appropriate than Jim or Jimmy.
