** Par for the course in ''Warhammer'''s successor, ''TabletopGame/{{WarhammerAgeOfSigmar}}''. If someone (or something) has a name, chances are that it's either going to be a case of AwesomeMcCoolname or this, ''and'' that it will be an example of ThemeNaming.

** In addition, numerous Nords have names like this (Ulfric Stormcloak, Brunwulf Free-Winter, Torsten Cruel-Sea, Galmar Stone-Fist, Hajvarr Iron-Hand, etc.). Some are even given name origin stories (e.g. Hofgrir Horse-Crusher)

** Tatooine seems to have a thing about this:

to:

** The current expanded universe, so far, hasn't done this as much as the old one. The one notable example is Nash Windrider from ''[[Literature/StarWarsLostStars Lost Stars]]'', who's from Alderaan.
** Tatooine seems to have a thing about this:this in ''[[Franchise/StarWarsLegends Legends]]'':



*** Another from the ExpandedUniverse Tatooine: Cole Fardreamer.
** Tthe EU also has [[VideoGame/XWing Keyan Farlander]].
** ''ComicBook/TalesOfTheJedi'' had Nomi Sunrider. 'Sunrider', however, is tied up due to another copyright holder on the name, so now it is under restriction for use in Star Wars media. The role of Bastila Shan from the first ''KOTOR'' game was [[WhatCouldHaveBeen originally meant to be filled by Nomi's daughter Vima Sunrider]], but this was changed due to the controversy, although she is mentioned once by name in-game. Lucas Licensing still can't use "Sunrider" in the name of a work or in an action figure/collectible, but apparently the name can be used within works.

So in fiction, a guy could be called Olaf Skullcrusher, it's treated as though that's a normal surname. In reality, if a king was called [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Olaf Skullcrusher]], it was because he was [[EarnYourTitle literally known for crushing skulls in battle]]. Now later on, that name might [[AscendedMeme ascend to a surname]], but fiction rarely gives such justification.

* In ''Literature/HisDarkMaterials'':
** Lyra Belacqua/Silvertongue is an example. The name "Silvertongue" is given to her towards the end of the first book, due to having [[spoiler:successfully convinced [[RuleofCool armor-wearing]] [[BearsAreBadNews bear king]] Iofur Raknison that she was Iorek Byrnison's daemon, causing him not to die before he can get back to Svalbard and reclaim his throne]]. Her original surname "Belacqua" is never heard again for the rest of the series.
** Lyra is revealed to be [[spoiler:Lord Asriel's]] daughter. However, his surname is never given. It's possible that Belacqua is not actually her real name and was simply used to disguise her, which would explain why it's never used once her father is known.

* ''The MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' has few true examples out of the [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters huge cast]]. There are lots and lots of epithets though: soldiers in the Malazan army are generally known by their nicknames (e.g. Mudslinger and Throatslitter) and some characters have heroic epithets attached to their name (e.g. Dujek Onearm, Scabandari Bloodeye).
* There's an Arys Oakheart in ''ASongOfIceAndFire''. In fact, many of the Houses in that series seem to take their names from this convention.

* In the ''Literature/{{Black Company}}'' series, a lot of the most powerful sorcerers follow that rule : Soulcatcher, Shapeshifter, Stormbringer, Moonbiter, Shadowspinner... Moreover, the name usually [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin tells about what the sorcerer is best at]].

* Sturm Brightblade from the {{Dragonlance}} novels. [[spoiler: His son is lumbered with the name Steel Brightblade by his mother, Kitiara, [[WhoNamesTheirKidDude who thought it was hilarious.]]]] Kender also seem to have names like this, most notably Tasslehoff Burrfoot.
