Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/ElTigre'', Manny has a very long name, each part being based on a member of the show's staff. As one could guess, most of the names are Spanish... Except for [[OddNameOut O'Brien]]. Downplayed, though, since that's the ''only'' part of his name that counts (again, the rest of his name is Spanish), and because he's rarely called by his full name (only by his dad when he's mad at Manny).

* Zaboo in ''TheGuild''. Real name: Sujan Goldberg. As he explains to anyone who asks, he's a "hinjew".

--> Mario Adorf, a tell-tale name indeed. Mario calls to mind the actor's Italian roots (his father was a Calabrian surgeon) whereas Adorf reveals his German origins (his mother was a radiologist from German-speaking Alsace). As for the full name Mario Adorf it echoes to perfection the international character of this living legend's long career.

* Yuri Himemiya from ''VisualNovel/PrinceofStride Alternative'', who may not seem to be this trope at first since he has a kanji name, but [[http://prince-of-stride-alternative.wikia.com/wiki/Yuri_Himemiya his hair]] gives it away (although not in a manner seen in real life) - he's half Russian, half Japanese.

* Vivio's name in ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' is most likely Belkan (out of universe, [[VehicularThemeNaming she's named after]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subaru_Vivio the Subaru Vivio]]). After being adopted by Nanoha, she gains her last name "Takamachi" (which is Japanese). The same thing applies to the Wolkenritter in ''[[Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaInnocent INNOCENT]]'', where they (except Zafira) receive Hayate's last name "Yagami".

** The Nakajima family are a downplayed example. All of them have Mid-Childan first names and Nakajima is Japanese since Genya's ancestors came from Earth. However, Nakajima is written out in katakana instead of kanji and their names are in western order to emphasize their foreign nature.
