Protagonist Title

When you want to use a character's name for a title, you have several options. You could title it after a secondary character or your protagonist's primary foe, but the more obvious is The Protagonist's name.

This trope is the reason for the existence of Protagonist Title Fallacy. The misconception which that trope describes is the thought that since a lot of titles are Protagonist Titles, therefore all Character Titles must be Protagonist Titles, even those named after antagonists and secondary characters.
