** Once you get down to it, the entire cast fits in some way or another. The main character is named Ruby Rose, and is associated with [[ColorMotif red]] and [[FlowerMotif roses]]. Weiss Schnee literally translates to [[Literature/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs Snow White]] in German, [[FairytaleMotifs which she is themed around]]. Blake is a first name generally [[TomboyishName given to boys]] that means "black" in Old English, also alluding to her ColorMotif; in addition, her last name Belladonna refers to the the Creator/{{Disney}} adaptation of ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast''. Finally, Yang Xiao Long translates to roughly "Small Sun Dragon" in Chinese, hinting at both her ColorMotif (again) and her [[PlayingWithFire fire-based abilities]]. And that's just the main cast.

* Virtually everyone on ''{{Earthsong}}'' has a MeaningfulName, thanks to Nanashi, who named them this way on purpose. Consider for a moment that Nanashi means 'No-Name' and you'll see why.
