* ''Webcomic/WelcomeToHell'' is about a boy who ends up in hell as a demon after [[MurderSuicide killing his parents and himself]]. His name is "Sock". This doesn't go unnoticed:
-->''Do you know why you're here, Mr.?\\
Because I killed my parents? Killed myself?\\
Yeah, well, I'd kill my parents too if they named me "Sock".''

Added DiffLines:

* While it's standard in ''WebComic/{{Goblins}}'' for the goblins to have a MeaningfulName picked by the fortune teller, everyone is still sympathetic to poor Dies-Horribly, and Hava has to explain to everyone that it turned out the fortune teller wasn't actually trying to name him when he said "Piss-Off-I-Have-A-Headache". Complains-Of-Names got his name because he does, and he has reason to.

Added DiffLines:

* Brazil has a tradition of weird names, usually with a foreign origin: homages (e.g. [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creedence_Clearwater_Couto Creedence Clearwater Couto]]), misspelling imports (Michael = Maicon, Maycon, Maikon, Maykon) or names that just try to sound different (most commonly -son, such as Denilson, Valdson, Liedson and Nadson). Then there's names such as [[http://www.jcuberaba.com.br/userfiles/_Tospericargerja-Torres-(1).jpg Tospericagerja]], an homage to six players of the team who won TheWorldCup in 1970 (TOStão, PElé, RIvellino, CArlos Alberto, GERson and JAirzinho), and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Odvan Odvan]], homage to the song "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XlAx9_QD0oc O]] [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Divan_(furniture) Divã]]".

* In ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}'', the [[DecoyProtagonist not quite]] main character's parents figured they should give their kid [[AwesomeMcCoolName an awesome name]] should he ever grow up to become famous or important, so they named him Mikado Ryugamine. In English, they named their kid ''Emperor of Dragon's Peak''. This, of course, made him the target of endless jokes and taunting through the majority of his childhood, and nearly everyone feels the need to comment on just how pretentious his name sounds when they meet him.

* The main character of ''The Dog Lover's Mysteries'' is named Holly Winter. She claims it's because her parents didn't want her to feel "different" from her siblings. Her parents were dog breeders, and their other "children" were golden retrievers.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'', a clone of Starscream is adressing the Autobots but forgets Bulkhead's name. Upon being informed of it, the clone expresses sympathy.
** A couple episodes later, we find out that his name, as well as Bumblebee's, actually ''were'' given with malicious intent. [[{{Jerkass}} Sentinel Prime]], then [[DrillSergeantNasty Sentinel Minor]], was tasked with naming the recruits he was training, and he had a special kind of loathing for those two.
