A name format based on the fairytale "Cinderella", where the eponymous character is given a Portmanteau nickname of "Cinder+Ella". Recently "X+Ella" has been a popular way to name some characters. This seems to be particularly common for superhero comic books.

It should be noted the the suffix "-ella" is one form of a Latin dimunitive ending; coincidentally, another form is found in another name you might find on TV Tropes — Caligula.


  • Again, name comes from "Cinderella", although it was meant to be something cruel and demeaning, to remark on how she would get covered in ashes as a servant.
  • Other fairy tales with -ella endings:
    • The French fairy tale "Rosanella" - the titular princess is named so because she has a rose printed on her throat.
    • Another French fairy tale, "Peronella" by François Fénelon, which is about a country girl who switches places with an old queen.
    • "Prunella" from Andrew Lang's Grey Fairy Book is another example.
    • A few stories from the Pentamerone, notably Cannetella, Petrosinella (a variant of Rapunzel), and Rosella.
  • Done in reverse with Ella Cinders, a modern-day takeoff on "Cinderella".
  • Barbarella
  • Vampirella
  • Stripperella
  • Tsunderella, the title of one of the Lucky Star OVA segments, referring the resident Tsundere Kagami.
  • The Non-Adventures of Wonderella has several such named characters, including Hitlerella, Plunderella and Jokerella. When faced with a flower-themed supervillainess who calls herself "The Orchid", Wonderella suggests she call herself "Flowerella" instead.
  • When Leela gets superpowers in Futurama, she calls herself "Clobberella".
    Clobberella beats you up, Clobberella beats you up. Who does she beat up? You!

  • In the 60's in Germany a few short-lived "answers" to Barbarella appeared. The comic "Uranella" and the film-comic "Evarella" (both NSFW) are to name.
  • And Vampirella spawned even more, e.g. the "Portuguese Vampirella" Zakarella.
    • But not Vampyrella, which is an amoeba sucking on algae, the name being about a century older.
  • Cruella de Vil from The Hundred and One Dalmatians and adaptations has quite the apt name.
  • Scarecrowella, the name of the Cinderella spoof in Magic Adventures of Mumfie.
