* The majority of aliases adopted by Merlin Athrawes' and Nimue Chwaeriau's ''seijin'' spy network in ''Literature/{{Safehold}}'' make heavy use of Welsh. For starters, Athrawes and Chwaeriau mean "teacher" and "little sister" respectively. Other names used include Dialydd Mab ("avenging son"), Ganieda Cysgodol ("Cysgodol" meaning "shadow witch" or "shadow sister"), Dagyr Cudd ("hidden dagger"), Cennady Frenhines ("Cennad y Frenhines" means "queen's messenger"), and Merch O Obaith ("Daughter of Hope"). The exceptions have standard Safeholdian names, like Ahbraim Zhevons and Zhapeth Slaytyr, as they are used to blend in with average Safeholdians rather than be deliberately mysterious and exotic.

The reason the Welsh names aren't any kind of tip off is because Safehold's native and only language is a version of English.
** Events and objects used by the [[GodGuise "Archangels"]] bear Japanese names, such as the BoltOfDivineRetribution, the ''Rakurai'', or the ships they used to travel in, called ''hikousen''. Wise men and warriors of legend bore the title of ''sejin''.

* In the ''[[ComicBook/TheLifeAndTimesOfScroogeMcDuck Uncle Scrooge]]'' story "The Money Champ" by CarlBarks, Flintheart Glomgold stages a series of acts of sabotage against Scrooge, damaging his oil wells, gold mines and diamond mines and reducing their value right at the point Scrooge needs to sell them. Flintheart uses a series of aliases that are just rearrangements of the components of his name (Goldflint Heartglom, Flintgold Glomheart and Heartflint Goldglom). Not terribly subtle, but he was deliberately taunting Scrooge.
* ThePunisher often uses aliases that are linked to Castle, his real last name: Charles Fort, [=McRook=], Frank Rook, Francis Stronghold, Johnny Tower, Frankie Villa, etc.

Banner uses one of his usual aliases when running into the mobsters looking for Cassidy, but they don't believe him.

** This naming scheme was parodied in an issue of [[Comicbook/IncredibleHulk The Incredible Hulk comicbook]] published when the TV series was current. Doctor Robert Bruce Banner went into a Swiss clinic and said "My name is David [[Creator/BillBixby Bixby]]. I'm looking for a cure".

* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': Sam & Dean tend to use Rock Star aliases when going undercover, like Catholic priests [[Music/{{KISS}} Father Simmons and Father Frehley]]. Sometimes they use other famous-names-with-connections-to-each-other aliases as well, like [[StarWars Agents Ford & Hamill]] from the US Forestry Service. They've only been called on this once or twice.
