Often, the characters in-universe are completely unaware that a name has any meaning, and act as if the name was just like any other. If this is the case, the name is a sort of UnusuallyUninterestingSight. This can be PlayedForLaughs when the characters are ComicallyMissingThePoint.

ComicallyMissingThePoint, or alternatively, can become a ChekhovsGun if the name turned out to be an important plot device.

As an example, it is common to use for heroic characters names associated with hunting. So, apart from Hunter, which is a valid first and last name in English, you can use a translation to another language (Jäger, or the phonetic Yeager); the name of a predatory animal (Wolf, Hawk) or a translation of that (Wolfe, Lupin, Lupis, Wulf); or Orion, the constellation of The Hunter. Which is kinda cool, which is why this can double up with AwesomeMcCoolname.
