** That [[CSIVerse other character]] whose name is assonant with "Will Graham" (''Film/{{Manhunter}}''). First name rhymes with ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}}, but any physical resemblance or common ground of generalized nerdiness/impatience with bureaucratic obstruction would be purely coincidental, should anyone ever spot it.

** Jaime. J'aime is a French expression for 'I love'. Considering he is the only Lannister to be on good terms with all the others and that he is motivated by his genuine love for his family (each as individuals, unlike Tywin), this is probably not a coincidence. Also, "Jaime" comes from the Hebrew "Jacob," meaning "one who supplants," referencing how Tywin still considered him his true heir despite his other children being more suitable. Interestingly, the Biblical Jacob (literally, "one who holds the heel") came into the world holding his twin's heel, which is exactly what Jaime did.

** Lyanna Mormont was named after Lyanna Stark, the mother of Jon Snow. Fittingly it is Lyanna Mormont who first declares Jon Snow to be King of the North, and convinces the other Northern houses to follow her lead.

* ''XenaWarriorPrincess'': Had Eve, who was destined to bring about the "Twilight of the Gods". ''Eve''ning and ''Twilight'' are both times of day. Or... night I suppose.... This is more of an out of universe example, as In Universe, Eve was named by her [[spoiler: dead older brother, who was completely unaware of Eve's destiny]], during one of [[ToHellAndBack Xena and Gabrielle's many day-trips to the Underworld.]]

** ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'' examples include:
*** Emu (eternal dream) Hojo (life treasure): His first names befits a gamer, while his family name lampshades [[TheHeart his importance]] to other Doctor riders and him being a doctor who consider life to be the biggest treasure.
*** Taiga (big ego/selfishess) Hanaya - his first name befits his role of the resident DoctorJerk.
