* In addition to several of the weapons which appear in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', the Lord Inquisitor in ''[[Fanfic/TwiceUponAnAge All This Sh*t is Twice as Weird]]'' crafts a pair of daggers for himself which he names "Andruil's Blessing" and "Gift of Sylaise."



** When Tywin Lannister gifts his grandson Joffrey a newly forged Valyrian steel sword, the RoyalBrat gets an opportunity to name it. He considers a bunch of ludicrously crass and grandiose names before settling on "Widows' Wail." Its current owner is unknown, so it's not clear of that will be the weapon's permanent name. The sword it was forged alongside was given to Brienne of Tarth and named "Oathkeeper".

** Wayfinder: If you crossed a Magic 8-Ball with a divining rod/magic compass and a sword, it'd be Wayfinder. In response to queries (mental or spoken), it guides the user's hand to point at the correct one/direction ("Which person is lying to me," or "where is my son," or "which plate of food is poisoned," "Which path isn't trapped," or whathaveyou). The downside is that unless you specifically request a ''safe'' path to what you're looking for, it will invariably point you towards the most dangerous one that will lead to your desired destination.

** Artifact weapons created by [[MadArtist moody]] dwarves also get names. Although the randomly-generated names (or rather the English translation of the names) are often somewhat underwhelming. Such as Totmontorir, The Flowery Void, a giant leopard bone battle axe (which, for the record, [[BlingOfWar is encrusted with bismuthinite and studden with electrum, menaces with spikes of native silver and violet spessartine]], has an image of a dwarf in giant leopard bone, an image of a mountain in giant leopard bone, an image of clouds in [[{{Squick}} human bone]] and and image of clouds in rose gold).

Added DiffLines:

** Many more are found in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' and ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition''. In ''Inquisition'', the player receives the option to craft their own, and can name it whatever they like.

* Most Legendary Weapons Multiple weapons in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'' Also ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' that can be acquired have names, some namely the rare unique (often given as a quest reward), legendary (rare drop from any suitable source) and pearlescent (available in the The Secret Armory of General Knoxx DLC) rarities, examples include include: [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast "The Gub, Maliwan Helfire, Gasher", "The Hellfire" and Storm Front.""The Butcher"]]. Most named weapons often contain [[ShoutOut pop culture references]] to other media of the time of the game's development.
** Named rare weapons make a return in both VideoGame/Borderlands2 and VideoGame/BorderlandsThePreSequel, again they're (mostly) restricted to unique, legendary and pearlescent rarities, some are even returning guns from previous games.

* ''Literature/KingsOfTheWyld'': Pretty common among higher-level mercenaries. Gabe has the sword ''Vellichor'' (the most valuable artifact in the world, a gift from a dying immortal), Clay has the shield ''Blackheart'' (carved from the corpse of the treant Blackheart), Matrick has the knives ''Grace'' and ''Roxy'' (named after the prostitutes he lost his virginity to), and Ganelon has the axe ''Syrinx'' (origin unknown, but its magic only comes alive in his hands). Lastleaf has three swords, all forged by his father: ''Tamarat'' (forged to [[SeeksAnothersResurrection bring his wife back from the dead]]), ''Scorn'' (a "volatile weapon"), and ''Madrigal'' (the singing sword, a gift from Lastleaf's father to an Exarch).

* ''Literature/OldKingdom'': In this fantasy series a bunch of weopons have names, but the formost are the 7 necromancy bells the Abhorsen weilds, that give the user the power to control death itself.
** Ranna: The sleeping bell. the smallest bell used by a necromancer, brings silence in its wake and is able to make the living or dead fall asleep.
** Mosrael: The Waking bell, when rung, all who hear the sound are brought closer to life while the ringer is moved towards death.
** Kibeth: The Walking bell. A difficult and tricksome bell. It seeks to ring of its own accord. When rung it can bring freedom of movement to the dead, or force them back into death. but be warned, many a necromancer has walked where they shouldn't have with Kibeth.
** Dyrim: The Speaking bell. A clear and musical bell, when rang it can give voice to the dead, or take it from the living.
** Belgaer: The Thinking bell. A strong and cunning bell, when rung can restore individuality and memories to the dead, but just as easily erase them.
** Saraneth: The Binding bell. The deepest and lowest bell, when rung can force the dead or the weak willed living to obey the ringer.
** Astarael: The Weeping bell. The largest and most powerful bell, when rung all who hear the terrible noise will be forced deep into death, even the welder.
*** Named swords also exist, usually ones forged by the Wallmakers, Like the Charter Marked sword given to Lirael named "Nehima"
