** Dippee Pines is named so because he has a birthmark on his forehead in the shape of the Big Dipper. "Dipper" is actually a [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname nickname]] he got because of said birthmark and we have yet to learn what his real name is. His twin sister [[GenkiGirl Mabel]] on the other hand plays it straight, as her name means "lovable," which certainly fits her friendly and playful nature.

* ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'':
** Marinette has ''marine'' blue eyes, and her name is Catalan for "ladybug"- a symbol of good luck. Fitting for a brave, compassionate superheroine who is nothing ''but'' good luck to those around her.
** Adrien means "dark", and he spends much of his childhood sad and alone. Later it takes on a more positive meaning when Plagg, a black cat-spirit, lends Adrien his power.
** Gabriel is a distant man admired by many [[spoiler:and he bears the winged moth-spirit]].

* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'': Marceline's name means longevity which means that she has a long life due to her being a Vampire.
** Probably a coincidence, but "Marceline" is also a [[SignificantAnagram partial anagram]] of Literature/{{Carmilla}}—who would also rearrange her own name into various anagrams every few decades, perhaps to throw off potential {{Vampire Hunter}}s. (The theory suddenly makes a lot more sense ever since Marceline's voice actress confirmed that, in the past, [[LesbianVampire Marceline used to date Princess Bubblegum]].)

* ''[[WesternAnimation/GoofTroop Goofy]]'', so named because he's, well, rather goofy.
** His French name, Dingo, goes one better: it's a slang word for "crazy" (derived from the word ''dingue'') and a dingo is also a type of Australian dog, which is Goofy's species.
* Dipper Pines of ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' is named so because he has a birthmark on his forehead in the shape of the Big Dipper.

His twin sister [[GenkiGirl Mabel]] on the other hand plays it straight, as her name means "lovable," which certainly fits her friendly and playful nature.
** This also works for Gideon Gleeful, whose name is a {{pun}} on the phrase Giddy n' Gleeful, which is his usual attitude (even if he is a psycho), and it works for Bill Cipher on many layers. His name is a reference to the Beale Ciphers, which are cryptic like him,or a reference to the dollar bill, which his image is on, and cipher, because he might be the one who puts them in the show. His name also could be a combination of LouisCypher and Bill Z. Bubb, which are names for Satan, and Bill is kind of satanic.
*** [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gideons_International Gideon]] is also a fitting name for someone who serves as a spiritual (and entrepreneurial) leader in his community, at least in the first season. His name can also mean 'Feller of trees' and he has [[spoiler:had]] a rivalry with the ''Pines'' family.
