* ''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.

* Mario Greymist in ''{{Dragaera}}'' averts this - it's an epithet, bestowed either because of the number of people he "sent to Greymist Valley" (i.e., killed) or because he used a gray mist to facilitate his most famous assassination, depending on whether you believe Vlad Taltos or Paarfi.

* ''Star Blazers'' (The dub of Anime/SpaceBattleshipYamato) gives us Derek Wildstar. Derek and Alex Wildstar were originally Kodai Susumu and Mamoru - common names meaning "(to go) forward" and "to protect".

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/{{Weregeek}}'': In one arc, the group play a ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse'' LARP, and most of the werewolf names are in the form 'Verbs-The-Noun' (such as Cracks-The-Code, Finds-The-Way, and Slays-The-Night). There's even one character ''actually named'' Verbs-The-Noun.

* Korgan Bloodaxe is an evil dwarf from ''[[BaldursGate Baldur's Gate 2]]''. The game goes so far as to tell you there's an actual clan Bloodaxe. The game also has one example a realistic usage of it: Jan Jansen's ([[TheMunchausen alleged]]) uncle Uriah Twin-Hammers. The surname was an epithet earned because he, well, used a warhammer a lot. The "twin" part was because of his, um, ''other'' "hammer." The leader of the Shadow Thieves, Renal "Bloodscalp", earned his epithet in an unknown manner, [[ForegoneConclusion though it was probably gruesome]].
