* ''ComicBook/UsagiYojimbo'': Usagi's swords are named "Willow Branch" and "Young Willow". It's only really mentioned in the scene when he recieves them, so it's easy to overlook.

** Orc Warboss Grimgor Ironhide wields a double-bladed axe named Gitsnik.
** Averted in the case of the Runefangs, the swords wielded by the Elector Counts of the Empire as symbols of station as well as incredibly potent artifacts. You'd expect weapons that powerful and important to have individual names, but no; the Runefangs are only referred to as "the [Province] Runefang".

* Black Knight Bruford from ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'' wields a sword named "Luck". After Jonathan defeats and briefly restores his true noble nature, Bruford spends his few remaining seconds of un-life passing on his sword to Jonathan. Bruford also adds a letter "P" to the "Luck" that is engraved on the blade using his own blood, thus renaming the sword "Luck&Pluck" in honor of Jonathan's courage.

** ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' does this with weapons like Maria, Ratslayer and The All-American while including some totally unique weapons
like Euclid's C-Finder and "That Gun". The 'always better than their mundane counterparts' aspect is less true, though (due to the introduction of the modular upgrading system -- the named weapons can't be upgraded, while their mundane counterparts can).

* Related to all the Vera examples, it's not uncommon for Infantryman to name their rifles. This is done for two purposes. 1: So that that the soldier in question will be more inclined to take good care of the weapon (you name it you care for it). 2: So that when the quartermaster is rummaging through weapons to hand out to the unit, he only needs to know the name of the rifle to grab [[note]] Which is easier for the soldier to remember[[/note]], as opposed to the serial number [[note]] which the soldier in question may not remember[[/note]].
