* In the Literature/{{Discworld}} book ''Discworld/LordsAndLadies'', mention is made of the Carter family, who named their daughters after virtues and their sons after vices. They turned out to be non-indicative: Charity Carter grew up to be greedy and Prudence Carter wound up the mother of fourteen kids, while Anger Carter is known for being even-tempered and Bestiality Carter is known for being kind to animals.

* In the alternate timeline detailed in HarryTurtledove's ''Literature/Timeline191'' series, America gets involved in a conflict called The Second Mexican War in the 1880s. Despite its name, the war wasn't fought against Mexico (unlike the First Mexican War) and only part of it took place South of the Mexican border. The war was fought between the United States and the Confederate States, and the part of Mexico where the fighting took place was technically part of the Confederacy at the time.
