While playing Glory of Heracles for the DS, I named the hero Icarus because of the reference to Pit from the Kid Icarus games really early in? the game. Turns out naming him Icarus in this game is 100% accurate given the ending and his mythology. That means that for anyone who's played Kid Icarus or Super Smash Bros. Brawl before playing this game, naming him Icarus is not coincidental whatsoever. Nice job there.
For big time coincidence points, Icarus was Hercules' sidekick in the animated series based on the Disney Hercules movie. I named my character Icarus because of THIS, and still had it end up correct.
This troper picked that name because the name I originally picked didn't end in an 's' and it was the only one I could think of... the only reason the 's' thing mattered to me was because most everyone else's name ended with an 's'.
