* Hurdy and Gurdy from the ''IvaliceAlliance'' and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyCrystalChronicles'' were named after the Hurdy-Gurdy Instrument; this is especially appropriate for the ''[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsA2 Tactics A2]]'' Hurdy, who is an actual musician, and even has his namesake as [[InstrumentOfMurder a weapon]] which teaches one of his Bard abilities.

* ''Series/{{Neighbours}}'' had the Brown family who named their children after Music/TheBeatles, though the connection was only gradually made explicit. George was introduced first under an alias, Frazer Yeats, but a guest character, Johnny Brown, identified him as his brother. After their much younger brother Ringo showed up the following year, it came as little surprise that they had a sister named Pauline (who never appeared in person). Frazer later finds out that he had a younger brother named Paul, who drowned when he was barely a year old.

* The Koopalings of the ''SuperMarioBros'' games are all named after popular musicians at the time: [[Music/IggyPop Iggy]] Koopa, [[Music/{{Motorhead}} Lemmy]] Koopa, [[Music/LudwigVanBeethoven Ludwig Von]] Koopa (sharing his hairstyle), [[Music/RoyOrbison Roy]] Koopa (sharing his horn-rimmed sunglasses), and [[Music/ThePlasmatics Wendy O.]] Koopa. Exceptions were talk show host [[Series/TheMortonDowneyJrShow Morton Koopa Jr.]] (though that one also sung and worked as a DJ, and the character's star over one eye is probably a Music/{{KISS}} reference), and Larry Koopa - "he’s not Larry Mullen Jr. from Music/{{U2}} or LarryKing—[[http://kotaku.com/how-a-mario-character-was-named-after-motorheads-lemmy-1750180427 he just looked like a Larry.]]"
