* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has villains with names like Nightmare Moon, Discord, Queen Chrysalis, King Sombra, Tirek, and... Starlight Glimmer. Considering she [[spoiler: rips the marks of ponies' destiny right off their unwilling bodies, and then later alters time itself so that Twilight is forced to endure alternate futures based around each previous villain conquering the world,]] Starlight may be the worst of them all.

** The TropeNamer is Voldemort. His real name is Tom Marvolo Riddle. He hates it, in part because of this trope - though more accurately it's because it's not very interesting or unique, rather than not very evil. Also, it's his Muggle father's name. Of course, Dumbledore makes a point of always calling him Tom.

* The Sith from ''Film/StarWars'' have some very ObviouslyEvil names like "Maul", "Sidious", "Grievous", "Tyrannus", and "Vader". They take these names upon becoming Sith, and their original names aren't always quite as frightening. Darth Sideous and Darth Vader were originally named Sheev and Anakin respecively, which are relatively ordinary names for the Star Wars universe.
