* The Angels in ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' all have names ending in "-el"- Ramiel, Zeruel, Israfel, etc.- except for one named Sandalphon and another named Tabris, [[spoiler:AKA Kaworu.]] This is because the "-el" ending means "of God" in Hebrew, and those named angels in Judeo-Christian lore do indeed mostly have names ending in "-el", although there are exceptions, and Sandalphon is [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandalphon one of them]]. There is no angel named "Tabris" or anything like it, though. A common theory is that Gainax is referencing the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theophory_in_the_Bible#Yah_theophory Yah theophory]] name "Tabbris" meaning "Good of Yahweh or Yahweh is Good". If true, however, that still makes Tabris the odd one out, since he is the only one without an actual angelic name.

* Blinky, [[MeaningfulName Pinky]], Ink(e)y and Clyde, the ghosts from ''VideoGame/PacMan''. ''Ms. Pac-Man'' replaced Clyde with Sue and ''Jr. Pac-Man'' replaced him with Tim. According to TheOtherWiki, in the original Japanese version, one set of names for them (see [[http://www.exotica.org.uk/wiki/Lost_In_Translation/Puckman here]]) was Akabei (or "赤ベイ", with 赤 meaning "red"), Pinky, Aosuke (or "青助", with 青 meaning "blue"), and Guzuta (or "愚図た", with 愚図 meaning "indecisive person" or "someone who lags behind"). Guzuta is the only one that doesn't refer to a color.

** With the current generation of [=SSNs=], the ''Seawolf'' and ''Virginia'' classes, USS ''Seawolf'' is a throwback to the original submarine naming scheme that had been abandoned in the 1970s (prior to the ''Los Angeles'' class all attack subs were named after aquatic creatures). USS ''Connecticut'' begins the new scheme of naming them after states, but is immediately followed by an exception to the scheme with USS ''[[NamedAfterSomebodyFamous Jimmy Carter]]''. The follow-on ''Virginia'' class are almost all named after states, with the exceptions of the 12th (''John Warner'') and 22nd (''Hyman G. Rickover'') that are named after people. With a total of 67 ''Virgina''-class boats planned and [[CaptainObvious only 50 states]], obviously several more exceptions to the naming scheme will be required.



** In several languages, Earth is the only planet in the Solar System that is not named after a Greco-Roman god. And nope, "Terra" will not help either. In the case of Chinese and Japanese, all the planets' names end in 星 (''-xīng'', ''-sei'', star/planet) except for Earth (地球, ''dì qiú'', ''Chikyuu'', "earth-ball").
