* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse,'' the [[WizardsFromOuterSpace Gems]] are all named after whatever gem they are. Later episodes reveal that there are actually multiple of each kind on Homeworld, meaning that you have a whole race of Pearls all named Pearl, etc. It doesn't help that members of each Gem-race look nearly identical and have the same job, either, due to their FantasticCasteSystem. (Of course, the lack of individuality is part of the point.)

** In the Roman aristocracy, people didn't really have names as understood today, but instead used a record of their family tree, consisting of their clan, their family, and in many cases the names of branches and sub-branches within the family, sometimes with the addition of a [[YouAreNumberSix number to keep siblings appart]]. Men did have a personal name as well, of which there were about twelve from which a father could choose for his sons. During the imperial era, the high society of Rome was actually a planet of Agrippa, Lucius, Gaius, Marcus, Tiberius, and Titus. Titles were also often adopted as official names. For example, "Augustus" was a title that could be translated as "the Illustrious One" or, more simply, "venerable". Soon after, it became customary for ''all'' Roman Emperors to adopt Caesar and Augustus to their name. Names were also dropped as readily as they were adopted: by the end of his life, Augustus had only kept Caesar from his original name (Gaius Julius Caesar Octavianus). At the end of his life, he was officially Imperator Caesar Divi Filius Augustus.
