to:

* ''Fanfic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'': Averted. The code names used by the JSSDF are deliberately meaningless; the guy actually responsible for the designations tends to name them after random, everyday things that happen to be nearby. Example: Operation "Wallpaper" is the name for their highly classified [[spoiler:ongoing investigation into SEELE and NERV]], while their highest ranking source is known as Agent "Balcony".

* Seen frequently in the [[Fanfic/{{Cinderjuice}} Contractually Obligated Chaos]] series with the assorted {{original character}}s. It's especially pronounced with the {{Arc Villain}}s - Erebos is a kind of ghost known as a Shadow Person, and his name is Greek for "darkness." Meanwhile, Vasile is the Romanian form of the name Vasilios, meaning "king," and he's extremely proud of having had RoyalBlood in life.

* ''FanFic/ASmallCrime'':
** The writer said that Kit was named after a beautifully-crafted crossbow that she saw in an antique shop with the same name.
** Plus, ''kitsune'' (foxes) also have naturally golden eyes.
* This was discussed in Fanfic/KillLaKillAU, in an aptly named chapter, when Ragyou explains how each of them got their names. True to her name, Satsuki was born in May and on the night of a full moon and Ryuuko, like her canon counterpart, is described as Ragyou tends to see her, like a stray and that she wanders (metaphorically), yet, at the same time, her name also alludes to fact she was born on the night of meteor shower. Apparently, according to Amoridere, Nui's name is meaningful in that it is supposed allude to her being a JerkAss, as the alternate definition of "needling" means, in simple terms, to "mess with" someone (teasing, bullying, something like that), which is what she does.

* In ''FanFic/NeverHadAFriendLikeMe'', while it wasn't intentional, [[OriginalCharacter Amanda Adams's]] name does hold symbolic significance. "Amanda" is a name that means loveable.
