* Yoite from ''NabariNoOu'' has the same name as a cat Yukimi used to have. Strangely, this is later inverted into Type 1 when Yukimi gets another cat after [[spoiler:Yoite dies]] and, unconsciously influenced by the [[spoiler: traces of his memories of Yoite]](the person, not the first cat), names it Yoite. [[ZigZaggingTrope And in the end it's subverted]] when everyone [[spoiler: regains their memories of Yoite]] and Yukimi [[spoiler:renames the cat "Yoi"]].

** Indiana was [[TributeToFido actually the name]] of GeorgeLucas' dog (who was also the inspiration for [[StarWars Chewbacca]]). And following the line, the other two protagonists of ''Temple of Doom'' were named after dogs, Willie (Creator/StevenSpielberg's) and Short Round (screenwriters Willard Huyck and Gloria Katz)
*** Played with in ''Kingdom of the Crystal Skull'' with Mutt Williams, who is named not after a dog but after a synonym for "dog."

* Frequently happens when a new species is discovered, such as when [[TheFarSide Gary Larson]] had a newly-found breed of parasitic louse named after him. It was meant as a compliment (as he stated in one of his books, he knew no one was going to name a new species of swan after him).

* In ''{{GUNNM}}'', main character Gally was named after a cat that Dr. Ido owned, which had died a short time before he found her. She's not happy to hear this. Of course, in [[BattleAngelAlita the U.S. version]], the cat's name is Alita instead. Either way, part of the reason she's not happy about it is that [[GenderBlenderName the cat was male]].
* In ''{{Nana}}'', one of the two Nanas was nicknamed "Hachi" to differentiate between them. This came from UsefulNotes/{{Hachiko}}, because she was known for being incredibly loyal.
