Does this trope refer specifically to people, or can it cover also things like a sword named Sword, or a big city named The Big City?

Pulled this:
  • One of Dick Giordano's text pages in The L.A.W. miniseries revealed this about Sarge Steel: "And 'Sarge' is his name (Sargent, as in Sargent Shriver), not his rank."

Not his rank. He was a private eye, and then a special agent. Never a soldier or cop, so never a sergeant. Sarge is just his name.

Isn't Doctor Krieger on Archer an example of this?
