* Played with in "Literature/{{Okuyyuki}}". The sentient, magical Japanese sword [[AntiHero Reilly]] picks up used to be a LegendaryWeapon with an elaborate name that everyone recognized (at least in Japan), but has been forgotten by the world at that point. Having trouble with her Japanese name, [[ICallItVera he nicknames her "Audrey" instead]].

* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', pretty much every character has some kind of bizarre and badass weapon, most of which are named [[note]] though most of them are only known through WordOfGod [[/note]]. They range from a sniper-rifle-scythe called Crescent Rose to a kusarigama-pistol-katana-whip-scabbard-ribbon-sword-thing dubbed Gambol Shroud to a simple pair of rifle and sword christened Wilt and Blush.

Added DiffLines:

* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'' ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar'' has the daemonhammer "God-Splitter" wielded by Inquisitor Mordecai Toth before being given to then 3rd Company Captain Gabriel Angelos of the ''Literature/BloodRavens''. "God-Splitter" gets it's name for the fragment of Suin Daellae, The Wailing Doom, inside it. Having a fragment of the Wailing Doom, the weapon of the Eldar Avatar of Khaine, means that God-Splitter is much stronger agiasnt the forces of Chaos than a standard daemonhammer.

* In C.S. Goto's ''Literature/BloodRavens'' trilogy, Rhamah's Vairocanum. Made from part of a WreckedWeapon that had been ForgedByTheGods of the Eldar themselves. It makes Wisdom look like a cheap butter knife in comparison when it comes to craftsmanship.
* In Chris Roberson's Literature/ImperialFists novel ''Sons of Dorn'', Taloc wants to get into the fight so he can name his sword, which is a RiteOfPassage. [[spoiler:Which is why he is deeply pleased when he gets it back at the end.]]

** Speaking of spaceships, all ships in Rogue Trader that can be obtained by the player is assumed to be older then dirt and have a aged machine spirit. This can prove interesting when you notice the guns start firing themselves or the engine puts itself back together.

* Initially averted in military science fiction ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'', where (unlike in the present-day United States) warships usually have only numbers, not names. However, protagonist John Rumford eventually resurrects this tradition, and names two aircraft carriers after famous martyrs of the [[TheRepublic Confederation's]] liberation struggle: the ''[[TheGoodKing John C. Adams]]'' and the ''[[ColonelBadass John Kelly]]''.

* ''Literature/MoDaoZuShi'': Given it's part of the xianxia genre, every notable character has a personal blade, maybe other magical treasures (i.e. flute, guqin); all of them are named.

** In the second book, ''Literature/WordsOfRadiance'', it's mentioned that most people give their Blades names. Adolin is the exception, having decided that since his weapon belonged to one of the Knights Radiant back in the Shadowdays, it already ''has'' a name, he just doesn't know what it is. [[spoiler:As it turns out, the Radiant's Blades were their own bonded spren, and all the modern Blades are the corpses, dead spren killed by the broken oaths. So not only is Adolin right, but three new ones are created and named through the course of the book: Kaladin's Sylphrena, Shallan's Pattern, and Jasnah's Ivory.]] In the novella ''Literature/Edgedancer'', [[spoiler: Lift's spren Wyndle joins the party. Though he doesn't want to be used as a sword. He's fine with turning into a sword and being admired as a work of art though, or turning into a fork and being used to eat dinner though.]]
