** ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' also parodies the Puritan convention, with Omnians having names like Mightily-Praiseworthy-Are-They-Who-Exalteth-Om, Smite-The-Unbeliever-With-Cunning-Arguments and Visit-The-Infidel-With-Explanatory-Pamphlets. There's also Sam Vimes's ancestor Suffer-Not-Injustice.
** In Discworld/{{Snuff}}, it is revealed that goblins are all named like a cross between {{Magical Native American}}s and {{Exalted}} characters - "Tears of the Mushroom," "Regret of the Falling Leaf," "Shine of the Rainbow," "Sound of the Rain on Hard Ground," "The Pleasant Contrast of the Orange and Yellow Petals in the Flower of the Gorse," and so forth. This poetic/artistic streak in a species that [[FantasticRacism most people treat like intelligent vermin]] is significant to the plot, although their exact naming conventions are never precisely explained. They're apparently loose translations, and only [[TranslationYes a word or two]] in Goblin. Abbreviating a goblin's name is a good way to make it violently angry unless it is ''very'' well disposed towards the negligent human.
* In the novel Creator/ChinaMieville's ''Literature/{{Embassytown}}'', the alien Hosts mark certain human residents as similes to be used in their everyday language; the main characters is formally named "there was a human girl who in pain ate what was given to her in an old room built for eating in which eating had not happened for a time," or "the girl who ate was given to her" for short.

The "sa" affix on the first part of her name would translate into "er" in English (we might all start our names with "Sun-Earther", in English, if we were to adopt the same nomenclature), and the "dam" part is similar to the German "von".''

** A particularly amusing Native American example is the 19th century warrior whose name was translated as "Young Man Afraid of His Horses". Apparently a more accurate translation is "Young Man Whose ''Enemies'' Fear His Horses" -- in other words, the minute they see his horses coming it's BringMyBrownPants -- but either way the name belongs here.
* Related to this trope, in the German language (and perhaps others), an official title or name has its spaces removed and all the constituent words are pushed together into a single ''run-on word.''
** Germans who hold noble titles can't use them in Germany and must instead convert their title into their surname. Winemaker Prince Donatus of Hesse's legal name is Donatus Prinz von Hessen, while Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband Prince Frederick of Anhalt is known in Germany as Frederick Prinz von Anhalt.
* Names of Germanic origin are often this, if translated. And, while not NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast, there are many names that are names to back away from slowly with your hands up - you wouldn't want to mess with a woman who is called Spear-in-Battle for example.
