* In ''Film/CatchMeIfYouCan'', LeonardoDiCaprio's character uses the names of comic book characters as aliases. Something of a deconstruction since it gives the FBI agent following him something to go on.
* In ''Film/TheCableGuy'', JimCarrey uses the names of television characters.

* 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.
