* ''[[Literature/ADiscoveryofWitches The Book of Life]]'' Matthew lists every person he has ever killed killed.
* In the ''Literature/VillageTales'' series of novels, those names are omnipresent and oft-remembered, and not only on the WarMemorial in each village and on [[UsefulNotes/ThePoppy Remembrance Sunday]]. [[TheVicar The Rector]] for example thinks of his predecessors listed on the incumbents' board in the parish church all the time, seeing himself as a steward for the next one and trustee for all who went before: and regards them as the war dead of the Church Militant.
--> '''The Rector, reflecting to himself:''' " every memorial in this church was a survey benchmark, pointing the way to the one Way and Truth and Life; and every memorial in this church, a war memorial: the record of the Church Militant now seconded by death to the Church Triumphant and at rest. Here, their names imperishable upon the incumbency board, had been their captains in that struggle and their servants with it: Wulfhere, whom Aldhelm had himself selected to a cure of souls cut off by regular floods from his foundation of Crucis; Fulk of Rouen under the Confessor and the Conqueror alike; saintly Baldwin and predatory Ludovicus...."

* ''VideoGame/WatchDogs'': every single person you can kill has a name, and using the profiler both reveals this and some other details about this, some of them sympathetic and some of them not. In the ''Bad Blood'' DLC, T-Bone is haunted by the fact that the blackout he caused in 2003 to prove a point caused a dozen deaths, and memorized the names of the victims; he's utterly pissed when Defalt uses this to mock him.

* In some cities in Germany, they have Stolperstein, or Stumble-Stones. They are certain stones embedded in the side walk in front of addresses where people the Nazis took during the Holocaust originally lived, listing their names, birth date, day of deportation and where and when they died, were killed or driven to suicide.

** In ''Order 66'', the fourth book of the ''{{Republic Commando|Series}}'' series, two of the [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Mandalorian]] sergeants responsible for training the special forces clone commandos gather to recite the names of every commando who fell over the past two years at barracks. It's over five ''thousand'' names. The scene becomes rather touching when, slowly at first then in larger numbers, the off duty clones join in the recitation of the names of their lost comrades. It's made rather clear that this is all the memorial the clones can expect, as few civilians genuinely care about the helmet-masked faceless forces, and even fewer know their names. The mandalorian commanders didn't just do that to show that they remembered. They did it out of a cultural obligation, where they couldn't forget the names of their 'family'. None of them, given the choice to forget, could have accepted it.
