* In ''Webcomic/IrregularWebcomic'', Paris briefly dates a man named Forbes Davis, which would be enough of an example, except he spells it "fforbes-Davïs", combining PreppyName with XtremeKoolLetterz.
-->'''Spanners:''' Wow. Pretentious. He must come from a long line of really posh nobles or something.\\
'''Paris:''' That's his first name.\\
'''Spanners:''' Yeah, see, [[RoyallyScrewedUp that's what happens when you inbreed amongst the upper classes]]; mutant names.

In Israel, due to historic reasons, German names are more likely to be found among the upper classes; although the business sector is somewhat less discriminating, giving rise to some clearly non-Ashkenazim rising to the upper echelons of Israeli wealth, even among the [[http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3427561,00.html Eighteen Families]], other prestigious fields, such as the academia, are still Ashkenazi-dominated. As for first names, adopting innovative names, often evoking pleasant imagery, is common among upper-middle classes.

In Nicaragua, the name "Chamorro" indicates upper class, especially if a relation to the political and business empire of the family of that name actually exists. German derived last names are still upper class more often than not, despite Somoza's expropriation of many Germans during the 1940s. In first name there is a certain tendency towards exotic names and/or spelling among the lower classes with Ruswel (sic!) just one example. Some people even give their child a PortmonteauCoupleName. During the 1980s, names like Lenin or even Russian derived names like Mijail were reasonably popular among leftists and Sandinista sympathizers. The upper crust has mostly stuck with traditional Spanish names, though occasional English names like Hope (instead of the more pedestrian Esperanza) can also be found. Double names are a must for every class, so triple and quadruple names are not unheard of.
