* There is a blacksmith in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' simply called Hammer. He has an apprentice named Nail. Not to mention one of the great houses of Westeros, Martell - which literally means "hammer". Ironically enough, their coat of arms is a flower.

* Orgrim Doomhammer of ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'' lore, named (or namer of) his infamous weapon. According to the novels, the hammer is actually a family heirloom, passed down from father to son. Only the current wielder can bear the name Doomhammer. Since Orgrim has no children, after his death, the weapon is passed on to Thrall, the new warchief of TheHorde. He does not adopt the name, though.

--> Shana: I don't need a name. (Plus there's everything else that's wrong with that sentence.)
--> Yuji: Then what can I call you?
--> Shana: I'm the Flame Haze with the sword Nietono no Shana.
--> Yuji: Then I'll call you ''Nietono-no''!
--> Alastor: If you're going to name her after the sword, ''Shana'' would sound better.
--> Yuji: But ''Nietono-no'' sounds more ''Japanish''.
--> Shana: Don't I have a say in this?

* A silly example from ''MemorySorrowAndThorn'': a mercenary hitman in Nabban carries so many knives about his person and is so fond of threatening people with them that his nickname is "Ave Stetto" (lit. I have a knife). When he pulls this number on [[TheBigGuy Duke Isgrimnur]], he finds out the hard way that mere ''possession'' of a knife is insufficient to threaten a grizzled veteran.
