* The four elemental fiends in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'' were originally named for demons from Dante's ''[[DivineComedy Inferno]]'' -- Scarmiglione, Cagnazzo, Barbariccia, and Rubicante. A display issue caused their names to get changed in the English translation, to Milon, Kainazzo, Valvalis, and Rubicant, respectively. All four are also corrected in the official GBA re-release.

* As a shout-out to the works of Creator/JRRTolkin, many dwarfish names in ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' were based on the kinds of dwarf names you find in [[Franchise/TolkiensLegendarium Middle Earth]]. Other dwarfs are named for emotions, referencing [[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarves a certain Disney movie]].

* The ''{{Superjail}}'' fanfic [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8803490/1/Extended-Stay Extended Stay]] does this with the Warden and the Mistress's twins Matilda and Ethan. A review gave the author suggestions that the twins be named after the [[StarCrossedLovers star-crossed lovers]] in ''Literature/EthanFrome''. Obviously, the author took the suggestions for the names but then added in "Elizabeth" and "Victor" for their middle names. Hmm... Considering that the twins eventually become owners of Ultraprison and Superjail, almost like coming-of-age monarchs in a kingdom, could it be that they were also named for famous real-life monarchs as well and English monarchs no less? Possibly combined with NamedAfterSomebodyFamous.

* Unlike most other celestial bodies--named for [[ReligiousAndMythologicalThemeNaming gods, spirits, and heroes of ancient myth]]--UsefulNotes/TheMoonsOfUranus are named after figures from the writings of William Shakespeare and Alexander Pope (Titania, Oberon, Ariel, Miranda, Umbriel etc.). For even more modern shout-outs, we have certain surface features of [[UsefulNotes/TheMoonsOfSaturn Saturn's largest moon Titan]], where the mountains are named from the mountains of Franchise/TolkiensLegendarium, and the plains are named for the planets of Creator/FrankHerbert's ''Franchise/{{Dune}}'' universe.

* Discussed in episode 10 of ''Manga/ICantUnderstandWhatMyHusbandIsSaying'' when Hajime and Kaoru are trying to come up with hypothetical baby names. Hajime even points out that just about every name ever has been used in anime, manga, and games so it'd be near impossible to not do this.
