** This is doubly thematic: first the contrasting seasonal elements, but secondly, if you switch the last names you get the names of Cyclops from the Franchise/{{X-Men}} and Julie from ''ComicBook/TheMaxx''. Whether this ''means'' anything, though...

to:

* The two main characters of ''AnoKoNiKisuToShirayuriWo'' are named Shiramine Ayaka (shira meaning "white") and Kurosawa Yurine (kuro meaning "black") − although ironically, despite their names Ayaka is black-haired while Yurine is blonde. Their names also have the exact same number of syllables, with the first name written in Hiragana. And if you push even further (but it might be coincidental there), Ayaka has a last name ending in [ine] and a first name ending two [a]; Yurine has a last name ending with two [a] and a first name ending in [ine]. So you could say their very names highlight their [[OppositesAttract paradoxical]] [[BirdsOfAFeather dynamic]].

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' has Demona and her daughter Angela.

to:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' has Demona and her daughter Angela. In an odd twist, the fact that they have opposite theme names is just a coincidence; when Macbeth gave Demona her name in 1040, he had no idea that Demona had an unhatched child who would later be named Angela; and when Angela hatched in 1058 and the Magus, Katharine, and Tom named her, they had no idea that her biological mother had been named Demona.

* Sideways' Mini-Cons from ''Anime/TransformersArmada'' are named Rook and Crosswise, but their Japanese names are Bright and Shadow respectively. However, they are both evil, though Sideways wears Rook (Bright) as a [[CombiningMecha head]] when he [[DoubleAgent poses as a benevolent Autobot]] and Crosswise (Shadow) when acting evil. In the toy's original release, it was the opposite way around (Shadow represented good, Bright evil), but due to an animation error in the anime wherein the animators accidentally used the wrong head, a running change was made to the toy to switch the Autobot and Decepticon faction symbols around.
