* Most German names are derived from a profession, and the likelihood of someone being named their actual profession is a bit higher than in Sweden, though still small, as the surnames originated at a time when there were a lot more farmers, smiths, tailors and weavers around, and no library assistants and car mechanics.[[/folder]]
* After President James A. Garfield was shot, the physician who treated him actually had the given name "Doctor." He was Dr. Doctor Willard Bliss, who had been named by his parents in honor of Dr. Samuel Willard, a pioneer of mental health treatment in America. Garfield died of his wounds, months later; basic best practices of modern medicine, including sterilization, were a few years away from becoming widespread, and almost certainly would have saved his life.

* In ''Theatre/TheDrowsyChaperone'', Mrs. Tottendale's servant is apparently named Underling. Janet also calls the Chaperone "Chaperone", which may invoke this trope (it's the only time she's called "Chaperone" vs. "the Chaperone", and her real name is never actually given).
