-->-- ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures''

Most FunnyAnimal, CivilizedAnimal, or TalkingAnimal characters' surnames, if they have one, go with their species. These often come with the middle initial "T," which of course stands for "The," or "J," following an old cartoon tradition. In some cases the species name is used as a surname, but seems to be just a descriptive term, with a definite article, as in "Edd the Duck" or "Kermit the Frog."

Bonus points for making it into an AlliterativeName.

Note that, considering surnames originally emerged to be descriptive ("Where's Todd?" "Which Todd? Andrew's son, Todd?" (Anderson) "No, Todd the blacksmith." (Smith) etc.), this is not all that ridiculous. Considering how [[InterspeciesRomance inter-species marriages]] never seem to happen, (unless they're main characters) it seems likely that a FunnyAnimal will have a surname related to their species. Also the fact that all members of a species share a common ancestor.

When it's the species that takes a character's name, it's AKindOfOne. When it's Dog Smith instead of Alice T. Dog, it's ADogNamedDog. When it's not the actual species name but a pun on it, that's ALizardNamedLiz.

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]]
* In ''MahouSenseiNegima'', Kotaro Inugami is half-[[{{Youkai}} [=Inugami=]]].
** In the Ariadne Magic Academy we have {{Catgirl}}s J. von Katze and S. du Chat (whose surnames are, respectively, German and French words for "cat").
* Tony Tony Chopper of ''Manga/OnePiece''. "Tony" is a nickname based on "''tonakai''", the Japanese word for "reindeer".
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ComicBook/{{Bucky OHare|and the toad wars}}. And for bonus points, his one-eyed robot is named "Blinky."
* {{Bamse}}. Has pretty much every variant used at some point. (Personal favorite is UnluckyChildhoodFriend Vargen's ("The Wolf") object of affection, Virginia Wolf, literary reference and animal surname in one!
** Interestingly, the three main characters all seem to lack surnames[[hottip:*:(unless Lille Skutt's first name is actually "Little" and even his wife is ALWAYS addressing him by his full name)]], despite two of them being married to women who used to have surnames and the one with a species name still using hers.
* Pretty much everyone on Earth-C in ''Comicbook/CaptainCarrotAndHisAmazingZooCrew'' had a species surname of some sort---or a species-related * first* name for some (see: Rubberduck's alter-ego of "Byrd Rentals").
** Brilliantly combined with {{Tuckerization}} for the Earth-C version of DCComics legend Gardner Fox. Who's a fox.
* DonaldDuck comics show an extended Duck family, including: Gladstone Gander, Gus Goose, Molly Mallard, Cornelius Coot, Lulubelle Loon... you get the idea. Other friends of the family include Scrooge's secretary, miss Emily Quackfaster, or TheProfessor Ludwig Van Drake. Daisy Duck and Donald Duck aren't related, thankfully. And for bonus points: Donald's father was named... Quackmore.
* RobertCrumb's Shuman the Human may have been named as a parody of this practice.
* The Bone cousins in {{Bone}}.
* Lupo Alberto from the eponymous Italian comic character counts, because his name means "Alberto the wolf", but is also his legitimate name AND a pun on 60s actor Alberto Lupo; in the same comic there is also Enrico La Talpa, where "La Talpa" means "The Mole" (which is what he is), but is also his surname.
** Also, the last name of the character Moses is implied to be Bobtail (a character called his father "Mr. Bobtail" on the phone), and he is, in fact, a bobtail dog.
* Most of the characters from ''USAcres'', with the exception of Booker and Sheldon.
* Calamity James' pet Lemming in ''Comicbook/TheBeano'' is called Alexander ''Lemming''.
* A Polish children's magazine, "Miś", used to publish comics about a little FunnyAnimal bear going to school with other bears. Oddly enough, while his schoolfriends had normal human names, the protagonist himself had the name "Miś", "bear". Interestingly, "Miś" is also sometimes used in Polish as the diminutive of "Michael".
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Eastern Animation]]
* The Polish stop-motion children's series ''Miś Uszatek'', about a kinergartener bear and his friends. Nearly everyone were named simply "Hare", "Piglet", etc. Lampshaded in one of the episodes, where Hare mentions that most other hares have more imaginative names (though they're all puns on something hare-related.)
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* Jabba the Hutt of ''StarWars'', who actually is a Hutt (this seems to be the case with all Hutts: Durga, Gorga, Zorba, etc.). Jabba's actual full name is "Jabba Desilijic Tiure", but no one ever seems to call him that.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* In Piers Anthony's ''Literature/{{Xanth}}'' series, characters generally take their species classification as a surname such as Smash Ogre, Glory Goblin, Forrest Faun, Che Centaur, Tandy Nymph... On the occasional intrusion of [[{{Muggles}} Mundanes]] into Xanth, most characters are confounded by the existence of an actual last name. They usually just end up being called X Mundane for the duration.
** It gets even better with mixed-species pairings: Glory Goblin married Harold Harpy and had two children: Gloha Goblin-Harpy and Harglo Harpy-Goblin. ....yes.
* The ''BerenstainBears'' children's books. Mama, Papa, Brother and Sister Bear. Brother Bear's original name was Small Bear, until Sister was born and his parents renamed him Brother. Every other character has a bear-related name. Too-Tall Grizzly, Lizzy Bruin, Mayor Honeypot, etc.
* The first ''{{Redwall}}'' book featured this - John Churchmouse, Colin Vole - though since maybe three characters in total even ''had'' "surnames" they may not have been meant to be surnames so much as descriptions. The later books don't use species names as surnames, but species-specific names are common; hedgehogs are almost invariably something like "Spike" or "Stickle" or "Quill."
* Benjy Mouse and Frankie Mouse from ''Literature/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy1''. (As "mouse" is only sometimes capitalized, it's surely not a surname here.)
* ''Johnathan Livingston Seagull'' (book and title character) as well as the parody ''Johnathan Seagull Chicken'' which uses characters with names like Segal and Fox as personifications of the corresponding animal
** Another parody was ''Ludwig Von Wolfgang Vulture''.
* The children in ''Literature/TheLionTheWitchAndTheWardrobe'' make friends with Mr. and Mrs. Beaver. Mr. Beaver's best friend is apparently Badger. How this naming system works in a country populated largely by talking animals is never really explained, although it disappears later in the series; in the final book we have Jewel the Unicorn and Farsight the Eagle.
* Used on occasion in the ''GeronimoStilton'' series: Sally Ratmousen, Count von Ratoff, [[NamedAfterSomebodyFamous Hercule]] [[IncrediblyLamePun Poirat]], etc. Most of the surnames are either mouse-related (Sweetfur, Von Kickpaw) or [[PunnyName puns on the character's occupation]].
* In ''ThePhantomTollbooth'' we have the Spelling Bee, literally a giant bee that is good at spelling. Tock the Watchdog: a dog with a giant clock in his body.
** Would Awful Dynne the living personification of noise count?
* Una Persson, in the Jerry Cornelius stories by Michael Moorcock and others, is also a possibility.
* In ''WhoCensoredRogerRabbit'', Eddie assumes, before meeting Jessica Rabbit, that she's a Toon rabbit. Nope--she's a Toon ''human'', but she married a Toon rabbit and took his last name.
* In the Chinese story collection ''Liaozhai Zhiyi'' as well as other paranormal stories in the same period, fox-spirits often take the surname "Hu", which is pronounced the same as "fox" in Chinese.
* In AndreNorton's ''Literature/TheZeroStone'', Eet may be this. When he tells Jern he's Eet, Jern asks whether it's his species or name, and he treats the question as silly. Then, he appears to be unique.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* In ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' , Ducky's nickname comes from the fact that his name is Donald Mallard. And he's ''human''.
* Replace "species" with "nationality" and a certain engineer from ''Franchise/StarTrek'' counts. He's Scottish and his last name is "Scott," with the nickname "Scotty."
* ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' had the sketch "It's A Tree," starring a talking member of the plant kingdom named Arthur Tree.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]
* Done in ''ComicStrip/SlylockFox'' with the animals, although oddly nobody has the surname "Human."
* Variant: '[[FootrotFlats The Dog]]' has such an EmbarrassingFirstName that he never allows anyone to speak it, leading to [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep everyone calling him 'the dog']].
* Norm T. Platypus in ''MyCage'', along with seemingly everyone else in the comic.
** Also of note: Nearly everyone's middle name is "T.," which seems to imply that everyone's middle name is... "The."
* All the animals in [[ComicStrip/RupertBear Rupert's]] world go by this.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Puppet Shows]]
* Both followed (Poink T. Ferret, Java Frog, Hump T. Camel, Hugh Manatee, Temp Ferret) and averted (Mutt Barker - illegitimate son of Bob, Arthur Bronswagger, Jimmy Noneck, Shak, Ezra Shawartz, Crappy Shawartz) on TheFundayPawpetShow. One of the newest characters, CoolOldGuy Gof, has a name that stands for Gray Old Fox.
* In ''TheMuppetShow'', most Muppets of recognizable non-human species have one or another form of Species Surname.
** Played with in an sketch on ''Series/SesameStreet'', where Kermit the Frog wanted a T-Shirt with his name on it, but the salesman kept mixing it up with shirts for Kermit the "Gorf," "Forg" and "Grof." Naturally, the other Kermits come in one by one for their own shirts.
* Also of JimHenson, comes FraggleRock. Every Fraggle has a surname of Fraggle. Mokey will often use it when scolding another character by [[FullNameUltimatum calling them by their full name]].
* [[TheBBC Children's BBC]] puppet presenters Edd the Duck and Gordon T. Gopher also qualify. In an interview for the ''Gordon T Gopher Annual'', Gordon insists his middle name isn't "The," but [[EmbarrassingMiddleName refuses to say what it actually is]].
* Roland Rat, his brother Little Reggie Rat, and his friends Kevin the Gerbil, Errol the Hamster, Glenis the Guinea Pig, and Fergie the Ferret.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Theater]]
* Kate Monster and Trekkie Monster in ''Theatre/AvenueQ'' (though in this case "monster" is a race, not a species). {{Lampshaded}} when someone asks if they're related. They're not, and the exchange is the setup for a song called "Everyone's A Little Bit Racist."
** Stretching the definition of "species" still further, one of the other puppet characters is named Lucy T. Slut.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/StarFox'' characters Peppy Hare and Slippy Toad. Also, Fox [=McCloud=], Wolf O'Donnell, and Panther Caroso have their species as their ''first'' names.
** Also ''Pig''ma Dengar, Leon Powalski (a chameLEON), Bill Grey, a greyhound, and Katt Monroe (cat with a K). Falco Lombardi would resemble a falcon if only he weren't bright blue. Whatever species he may be his name is clearly avian (he is the only bird in the series thus far).
*** But the famous Blue Falcon from ''VideoGame/{{F-Zero}}'' is also blue; the character's color may be a nod to this.
** And Fara Phoenix. [[PunnyName Say it.]] If it sounds like "fennecs" [[NoPronunciationGuide you did it right]].
* Several places in ''SonicTheHedgehog'', though there are some exceptions: Miles "Tails" Prower, Amy Rose... and in the Archie comics, Sonic isn't the titular character's ''real'' name. Apparently, his name is [[UnfortunateNames Olgivie Maurice Takeshi Hedgehog]].
** SonicChronicles gives Amy's full name as "Amy Rose the Hedgehog" (i.e., "Amy Rose" is a "double name," but her friends call her "Amy" for short), which makes her a straightforward example in that game.
** This trope is why [[CowboyBebopAtHisComputer less informed reporters]] sometimes call him "Sonic Hedgehog."
* In ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon'', the various Pokémon the player meets are all named simply by species. (One wonders what happens [[OneSteveLimit if two Bulbasaur]] ever show up in town.) The player, however, can rename his own character and any Pokémon that join his rescue team.
** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] In the second game. A Teddiursa and Ursaring who were paired together couldn't tell each other apart when the former evolved.
** Your partner is something of an odd case in the first two games, as they introduce themselves with whatever name you chose for them, which potentially makes them the only Pokemon in the world who has a proper name. Gates to Infinity avoids this by having your partner introduce themselves as their species initially, then having them ask you to give them a nickname later (Which they'll claim is the best name ever even if you didn't actually change it).
* The [[SuperMarioBros Mario]] series has this, especially in the ''Yoshi's Island'' series, where the names were either a name or descriptive phrase in front of the species name (with the exception of Tap-Tap the Red Nose).
** The Toads, natives of the Mushroom Kingdom, all share the last name "Toad."
* Most mavericks in the ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' series sport species surnames.
* Satori Komeiji of ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' uses her species as her first name as well: she is a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satori_(folklore) satori]], of course.
** Ditto [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nue Nue]] Houjuu.
* Done pretty cleverly in ''Franchise/SlyCooper'', where most of the cast has a MeaningfulName of some sort or other. [[SympatheticInspectorAntagonist Carmelita Fox]] is, in fact, a vixen, but "Fox" is an actual surname, of course (for Hispanics, as well, such as Mexican President Vicente).
** Also, unofficially or officially; Bentley Wiseturtle and Murry Hippo. As well as Raleigh The Frog and The Panda King,
* [[VideoGame/ConkersBadFurDay Conker the Squirrel]] signs his name as "Conker T. Squirrel," which would make 'Squirrel' Conker's last name.
* ''Sid & Al's Incredible Toons'' stars Sid E. Mouse and Al E. Cat, doubling as a PunnyName ([[DontExplainTheJoke City Mouse, Alley Cat]]).
* The PC game ''VideoGame/JazzJackrabbit'' has the title rabbit's last name and also has Princess Eva Earlong and Devan Shell.
* The title character of the mobile phone game ''[[http://www.joustinbeaver.com/ Joustin Beaver]]'' is a beaver who looks like Music/JustinBieber.
* In a rare ''human'' example, ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' features Vekel the Man, the bartender at [[BadGuyBar the Ragged Flagon.]]
* One of the protagonists in ''VideoGame/{{Psychosomnium}}'' is a bee named [=McBee=].
* ''BanjoKazooie'' games do this a lot. Kazooie even [[LampshadeHanging hangs a lampshade on it]] when the two meet a pig in ''BanjoTooie'', and he says his name is Chris. Kazooie is astonished his name isn't pig-related. Her suspicions are confirmed when he gives his full name, [[PunnyName Chris P. Bacon]].
* Stray animals in ''TheSims3'' are all named Stray Cat, Stray Dog, and Wild Horse. If adopted by a human family, particularly [=NPCs=], their first name changes to a generic pet name drawn from a list, and their last name may or may not change to the same as the human who adopted them.
* ''VideoGame/TheAdventuresOfMassmouth'': A worm-like alien named The Worm, though it's not clear if it isn't just a nickname.
* The sentient non-human races in Final Fantasy X use species surnames - Kimahri Ronso and Seymour Guado being the two most prominent (though Seymour is in fact half-human).
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* ''Webcomic/KevinAndKell'' uses this trope widely. The main characters are the Dewclaw family, after a specific animal body part; there's a family of foxes with the surname 'Fennec', after a sort of fox with rabbit-like ears, and a local feline mechanic is named Aby Eyeshine (Abyssinian).
* Used extensively in ''Webcomic/TheSuburbanJungle - Starring Tiffany Tiger''. An interesting variant used therein is Leona Lioness, who manages to work both species AND gender into her surname...
** ''[[http://roughhouse.suburbanjungle.com/ Rough Housing]]'', the sequel comic currently in the works, has Charity Cheeger (Cheetah/Tiger hybrid), and Langley Lupina (wolf).
* Grace Sciuridae in ''WebComic/ElGoonishShive'' (Sciuridae being the formal term for the squirrel family). Extra points for her CodeName, Shade Tail, which is what the name actually means in Latin.
* Eric Schwartz's ''WebComic/SabrinaOnline'' has a lot of fun with this trope. We have Thomas Wolfe, who is actually only half-wolf; his mother was a fox. He ends up [[InterspeciesRomance marrying Amy Squirrel]], who, not surprisingly, keeps her maiden name. There son ends up being one fourth fox, one fourth wolf, one half squirrel, with the name Timothy Wolf-Squirrel. Meanwhile, {{Fanon}} establishes Sabrina's surname as "Mephitidae" (the scientific family to which skunks belong to), while in the strip itself it's a "WhereTheHellIsSpringfield?" kinda thing.
** And then there's Sheila Vixen. You have to feel sorry for her dad.
* Played with a bit in ''PvPOnline'' by Skull the Troll. "Troll" is a straight example, but the "the" actually stands for "Theodore."
* Subverted in ''DaisyOwl'': Daisy isn't an owl, but her adoptive father is.
* ''Webcomic/DinosaurComics''' three main characters are all named after their species. Lampshaded in the [[AltText default subject field under the contact link]] in [[http://www.qwantz.com/index.php?comic=1221 this comic]].
** [[http://www.qwantz.com/index.php?comic=952 Strip 952]] featured "Tuggy T. Tugboat the Tugboat."
** The AlliterativeName variant is explored in [[http://www.qwantz.com/index.php?comic=1513 this comic]].
* ''TheWotch'' has Samantha Wolf, a.k.a. "Wolfie," who is human... [[spoiler:except [[WolfMan during the full moon]]]].
* ''EverydayHeroes'' features avian Dolly Bird, and her insect sibling G-Nat, who also uses the alias Nate Diptera (''Diptera'' being an order of insects including gnats, black flies, and midges).
* ''{{Melonpool}}'' has Sam T. Dogg (admittedly misspelled).
* TheLifeOfNobTMouse brought us Nob T. Mouse (the "T" stands for "The"), Flop Fish and Frederick Rabbitt.
* ''{{Femmegasm}}'' has Shelly Mander, who is a breed of salamander.
* Andrea Mouse in ''{{Horndog}}''.
* In ''{{Narbonic}}'' when Artie the hyperintelligent hamster is turned into a human, he takes on the pseudonym "Nick Cricetida".
-->'''Mell''': Where did you get a name like Cricetida, anyway?\\
'''Artie''': It's my family name.\\
'''Mell''': Well, duh...\\
'''Artie''': Cricetidae. A family within the order Rodentia, comprising wood mice, voles, hamsters, and over 70 distinct species of gerbil. One Mongolian species, ''Meriones unguiculatus'', is popular as a pet--
%% * Most of the titular species ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and Rosechus]]) in ''Webcomic/{{Sonichu}}''.
* ''Webcomic/PoppyOPossum''. The title character is, as you'd probably guessed, an opossum. Though the artist has implied that she's adopted and the O'Possums are mostly a family of cats.
* In ''Nine to Nine'' the characters [[http://www.tigerknight.com/99/2014-05-25 discuss]] that if a lioness teacher marries a horse, it would be confusing for kids to call her "Mrs. Horse".
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* This is the case with all the dinosaur characters in Blog/TheTyrannosaurChronicles. The main character, for example, is Traumador the Tyrannosaur. It is also implied that "the" is their middle name, with the notable exception of one of Traumador's friends, Norman '''''a''''' Centrosaur.
* Paul Hammerbro from ''BowsersKingdom''. Known throwing hammers when angry.
* A ''Website/{{Cracked}}'' Photoplasty ("[[http://www.cracked.com/photoplasty_268_19-things-old-people-suspect-about-modern-culture_p19/#14 19 Things Old People Suspect About Modern Culture]]") mocks people who confuse Music/JustinBieber with this.
* [[http://tokiandcowiki.wikidot.com/wiki:bunny-rabbitwright Bunny's]] surname, Rabbitwright, is a variant of this and she is, well, duh, a rabbit
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Nearly all animal characters from WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes, WaltDisney and {{Hanna-Barbera}}, the last as recent as the Shirt Tales.
** ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' uses this for a RunningGag; since Buster Bunny and Babs Bunny are the show's OfficialCouple, every time they introduce themselves together, they have to say, "No relation" afterward. This is eventually commented on in their cameo in an ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' skit. ('''Noah''': "Okay, let's hope not, this is a children's show...")
* Several Walter Lantz characters, including Woody Woodpecker, and his regular opponent, Buzz Buzzard; and Andy Panda.
* ''CampLazlo'' uses more than one of the name styles mentioned above; at least for those who actually have their last names mentioned ([[NoNameGiven those of the three main characters aren't]]). Edward uses variation 1 (T. Platypus), Nina, variation 4 (Neckerly, which is alliterative), and some characters' names are exceptions to this: Clogmeyer for Samson, Smiles for Patsy and Lumpus for, well, Scoutmaster Lumpus (his full name is Algonquin C. Lumpus).
* The premise of ''WesternAnimation/MyGymPartnersAMonkey'' is that a clerical error turns human boy [[AdamAndOrEve Adam]] ''Lyon'' into Adam ''Lion,'' causing him to be sent to a school of animals (all of whom actually follow this trope).
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Dinosaurs}}'', the 1991 sitcom, revolved around the Sinclair family. Although the surname isn't a direct species reference, it is a reference to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sinclair_Oil Sinclair Oil]] and its dinosaur logo.
* In the Disney/Pixar film ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'', many of the characters have names reflective of the brand or style of automobile on which they are based: Mack is a Mack truck, Sally Carerra is a Porsche 911 Carerra, Lizzie is a Ford Model T "Tin Lizzie," [[spoiler:Doc Hudson is [[strike:a]] The Fabulous Hudson Hornet]], etc.
* A version of the first variation is found in ''WesternAnimation/TheAnimalsOfFarthingWood''. All of the original animals just have their species as their name: for example, "Fox," "Badger," "Toad" or "Weasel." Their descendants have differing names, though.
* Several ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' have names that reflect their alternate forms. Bumblebee, who later became Goldbug, turned into a yellow Volkswagen Beetle (bug) in both bodies. There's also Soundwave, who turns into a tape player; Cheetor, Rattrap, Waspinator and any number of others from ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'', and Tankor and Jetstorm of ''Beast Machines'', to name just a few.
** In ''TransformersAnimated'' it's shown that the name everyone goes by were assigned to them by their drill sargeant in Autobot boot camp, and in ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' they apparently picked their own name upon discovering their new alt-forms.
* {{Parodied}} in ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit:'' Roger Rabbit is indeed a rabbit, but his humanoid wife, [[MsFanservice Jessica Rabbit]], is not.
* ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'' features Fievel Mousekewitz, Gussie Mausheimer, Tony Toponi (from the Italian ''topo'', which means mouse). It also featured Warren T. Rat, although [[spoiler:he was actually a ''cat'' in disguise]].
* Some of the first Droopy cartoons give his last name as Poodle. One cartoon gives him the name [=McPoodle=].
* Double time for Moose A. Moose, animated host of the children learning channel Noggin. In case you're wondering, yes he's a moose.
* A fairly creative example can be seen in the civilian name of ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'': Drake Mallard. The name has "hey, I'm a duck" written all over it, but they are also genuine names.
** On the other hand, his sidekick is a [=McQuack=].
** It's also hard to tell where his daughter's name would fit in. She's apparently a duck (one episode cites she's got duck molecules, anyway), but her birth parents gave her the name Gosalyn, which sounds more like 'gosling' than anything duck related; she takes 'Mallard' as a last name after Darkwing adopts her.
*** Her birth surname is Waddlemeyer. That could reference either ducks or geese. Her birth parents are never pictured, but her grandfather, Professor Waddlemeyer, looks like an obese Ludwig von Drake, or a gray-haired Herb Muddlefoot; presumably a duck.
*** But when she adopts a secret identity now and then, the name she uses is Quiverwing Quack. Only ducks and pelicans quack, and Gosalyn is very definitely not a pelican.
** Some of the rest of the cast follows this trope (Such as SHUSH agent Grizzlikoff) but most of them are too busy making other puns (like the scientist Sarah Bellum)
** Bonus points for the city where all this takes place... ''St. Canard''. [[BilingualBonus "Canard," of course, is french for "duck."]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheMightyDucks'' had two of these: Mallory [=McMallard=] and Duke L'Orange. Say that latter one out loud. And then there was a character with the first name of Canard (the French for duck). Double bonus points for giving their all-too-human manager the surname Palmfeather.
* Examples from ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'': Rat Capone and his sidekicks Sugar Ray Lizard and Arnold Mousenegger, Fat Cat's lackey Mole, Conrad Cockatoo, Mr. Starfish from Captain Fin's crew, Canina [=LaFur=] (from ''canine''). It's highly unlikely, though, that Canina [=LaFur=]'s evil stuntdog Zsa Zsa Labrador is a Lab Retriever.
* SkunkFu uses species ''given'' names rather than surnames.
* PlayedWith in ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife''. Heffer Wolfe is a cow who was RaisedByWolves.
** [[InsistentTerminology He's a steer!]]
* WesternAnimation/{{Bonkers}} D. Bobcat
* ''CatScratch'' has Human Kimberly. Though it's unlikely that her actual first name is "Human," just about every character calls her that while referring to other humans by regular names.
* From ''WesternAnimation/VeggieTales'', there's Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber, Junior Asparagus... Actually, it'd be easier to list counterexamples.
* The Dutch have WesternAnimation/AlfredJKwak. Guess what kind of animal he is.
* Every character in ''TheCaribouKitchen'' has this, plus some AddedAlliterativeAppeal (ie. Claudia Caribou, Abe Anteater etc.)
* Stimpson J. Cat (''RenAndStimpy'')
* Jake the Dog, and in a bizarre occurrence, Finn the Human in ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''. According to the creator, Finn is named "Finn the Human" because he is supposedly the LastOfHisKind. Note that these aren't their surnames - they're brothers, as Finn was adopted by Jake's parents, so they'd probably have the same surname if it applied to Dogs in the Land of Ooo.
** The princess-heavy show has some fun with this, in that there is even a character named Dr. Princess (it's her surname), who has no apparent connection to royalty.
* Played with in ''TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'', as while Jack Skellington sounds like a fancy use of this trope, there are some accents that pronounce "skeleton" as "skellington" (see ''HotFuzz'' for an example).
* PeppaPig is a straight example. Most are [[AlliterativeName Alliterative Names]] as well; Suzy Sheep, Rebecca Rabbit, Emily Elephant, Pedro Pony.
** And in the related show ''WesternAnimation/BenAndHollysLittleKingdom'', the elf family members appear to be called Ben Elf, Mr Elf and Mrs Elf.
* Baloo of ''Disney/TheJungleBook'' gave his full name as Baloo Bear in ''WesternAnimation/TaleSpin''.
* ''RockyAndBullwinkle'' has Rocket J. Squirrel and Bullwinkle J. Moose. Their middle initial is a reference to the show's creator, Jay Ward.
* Played straight on ''WesternAnimation/{{Birdz}}''. Most of the cast has their species as a surname, but the central family is Storkowitz.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has Angel Bunny, though he's usually referred to as just Angel.
** In Season 1, the owner of the doughnut shop in Canterlot was known as Pony Joe. Later, is Season 2, he's known as Doughnut Joe.
** In ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E24EquestriaGames Equestria Games]]'', Ms. Harshwhinny constantly refers to Spike as "Mr. [[SpellMyNameWithAThe The]] Dragon".
* All of the cat people in ''WesternAnimation/SWATKats'' have [[PunnyName cat-based punny names]]. Mayor Manx's surname is a breed of cat [[SubvertedTrope (which he isn't one of, him having a tail while Manxes lack one)]].
** Technically, he could still be one, as only show-quality Manxes lack a tail. There also exist "stumpy" and "longy" Manxes, which have, respectively, partial or full tails.
* In ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'', Mr. Krabs (Eugene H. Krabs) is a crab. Plankton also has this trope; "Plankton's Army" revealed that his full name is Sheldon J. Plankton. Patrick is a semi-example. He's a starfish (or, more properly, a sea star) and his name is "Patrick Star". Also, there's Squidward Quincy Tentacles, who's, well, a squid. Of course, SpongeBob himself probably counts too. (And he also [[MeaningfulName wears square pants...]])
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Real Life]]
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_(surname) Human (surname)]]
* Markus 'Notch' Persson, creator of ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'', is a person.
** It's the 8th most common surname in Sweden (spelling variants actually include "Person"). Between 1996-2006, Göran Persson was the swedish equivalent of prime minister.
* Subverted by the actress Leslie Mann, who is not a man.
* And Norman Jewison is not a Jew.
