Added DiffLines:
* ''Literature/TheLongEarth'' has Joshua Valienté. "Valienté" is obviously a play on "valiant" which is literally a synonym for heroic. "Joshua", meanwhile, is technically the same name as ''[[JesusChrist Jesus]]''.

* In the ''XWingSeries'', the two Alderaanian war frigates that survived when Alderaan adopted pacifism, and were still hanging around the system after the planet was destroyed, were named ''Another Chance'' and ''Valiant''. ''Another Chance'' was found some time before the books, and ''Valiant'' came up out of the Graveyard to [[BigDamnHeroes dramatically save the Rogues]] because one of them had taken ''Another Chance'''s IFF tag.

* RobinHobb plays with this interestingly in her ''[=FitzChivalry=]'' series (the ''Literature/{{Farseer}}'' trilogy): all of the princes are given names like this as part of magic which is supposed to install a corresponding personality in them. It doesn't work perfectly though- the hero is the illegitimate son of Chivalry, demonstrating an ironic application of his name, and Regal is TheEvilPrince. Chivalry was otherwise highly regarded, however, and Verity plays this trope absolutely straight.
