Protagonist Title

William Shakespeare: I could name [this play] after its main character, Timon, but it feels rather dull.
Widge: You named Hamlet after its main character.
Shakespeare: Well, this is not Hamlet. More's the pity.

Naming titles after their protagonists is one of the most popular title conventions in fiction, to the point that when a title isn't named the main character, everybody will assume they're the main character even though they're not. As this is so common, avoid adding examples to this page.

It is also likely that it is a One-Word Title, although, there can be examples with more than one word, such as Adjective Noun Freds, which are the protagonist.

If the title has the name of the protagonist and is also a pun, it would also be an example of Epunymous Title.
