* TheWitcher3WildHunt features Emhyr var Emreis, the current emperor of Nilfgaard, who is also known in his native language as "Deithwen Addan yn Carn aep Morvudd". This translates rather elegantly to [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast "White Flame Dancing on the Graves of his Foes"]]

* Several Argonians in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' have names like this, such as Scouts-Many-Marshes, Stands-In-Shallows, and Watches-The-Roots. Justified in that most of these are actually rough translations of their true, Argonian names. However, some seem to just be dropped on them by other races.

* Translating the ''Pillow Book of Sei Shonagon'', written by a medieval Japanese court lady and one of the earliest [[{{Diary}} diaries]] still in existence, Ivan Morris said he didn't feel he should transliterate the names, "for fear that they might produce a false exoticism of the 'Honorable Lady Plum Blossom' type."
