* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': All characters are given names that are colour-based, or associated with colours. The ColourfulThemeNaming was [[https://twitter.com/montyoum/status/406894139746172928/photo/1/large confirmed]] by the creators long before the in-universe reason was revealed. Eighty years ago a terrible world war ended that had, among other things, tried to destroy artistic merit, individuality and diversity. To remember that, and make sure it never happened again, people all over Remnant have named themselves and their children after colour themes. The exceptions to this rule are Ozpin and Salem, two beings that have a very unique and mysterious past, both with each other and within Remnant itself.

[[note]]From the audience's perspective, Ozpin brings to mind ''[[Franchise/LandOfOz The Wizard of Oz]]'' and Salem is a reference to the [[SalemIsWitchCountry Salem witch trials]], for a "good wizard/evil witch" dynamic. Neither reference exists in-universe.[[/note]]



** ''Homestuck'' has four kids, whose online handles can be shortened to TT (tentacleTherapist), TG (turntechGodhead), GG (gardenGnostic), and... EB (ectoBiologist), which belongs to [[LovableNerd John]], our original protagonist. This discrepancy is actually a ChekhovsGun; [[spoiler:a group of [[AllTrollsAreDifferent internet/real trolls]]]] had forced him to change his handle from ghostyTrickster.

** uranianUmbra(UU) and undyingUmbrage(uu) are the only chathandles that don't correspond to a pair of DNA proteins. Instead they represent uracil, which replaces thymine in RNA. The latter also is also the only handle that isn't in caps.

*** She's not the only one (Sirius' mom was named Walburga), but she's the main exception. WordOfGod says that she thought of Narcissa's name early and didn't want to change it.



* On ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents,'' the Anti-Fairies are all {{Evil Counterpart}}s of the Fairies, with names like "Anti-Cosmo," "Anti-Wanda," etc. Poof's analogue, however, goes by [[SdrawkcabName Foop]] instead.

* As a reference to the [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls original cartoon]], Kaoru from ''Anime/DemashitaPowerpuffGirlsZ'' has the odd name out of the main trio. Unlike Momoko and Miyako, her name doesn't begin with a "M".

* Belladonna is the only properly named character from the ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'' series to be related to the Velvet Room and not have a name that somehow ties into ''Franchise/{{Frankenstein}}''. The remainder are Igor, Nameless, Elizabeth, Margaret (this one's pretty obscure -- she's the ship captain's sister in the novel), and Theodore. (most likely for Theodore Roszak, author of ''The Memoirs of Elizabeth Frankenstein'')
