** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' has some in its opening theme—"Alduin, bane of kings, ancient shadow unbound." Every dragon's name is a three word epithet; "Alduin" means "destroy-consume-lord" (he was made by Akatosh to destroy the world at the end of time, hence his other major title, the World-Eater).

** Many other [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]] have names which fit when translated from draconic, such as "Curse Never Dying" and "Snow Wing Hunter", for example. Crosses over with AwesomeMcCoolname as the translated names sound quite intimidating.

** Grom Hellscream might be a good explanation of how this sort of thing gets started. His son is named Garrosh Hellscream, and is often specifically called "son of Hellscream." This is because Grom got his name for a [[ScreamingWarrior very]], [[BattleCry very]], [[TheBerserker VERY]] good reason.

Of course, Warlords of Draenor made this weird by introducing Grom's father, Golmash Hellscream. Who, it should be noted, has "the Giantslayer" as a separate title based on his own deeds, while Hellscream, which originally came from a trait of his son, is apparently now just a surname that predates its origin.
