* The character Vargen in ''ComicBook/{{Bamse}}'' is a wolf who was originally the main antagonist and eventually [[HeelFaceTurn became]] the de-facto [[SixthRanger fourth ranger]] to the PowerTrio of the comic. His name is Swedish for "the Wolf", and while it might seem like a case of SpeciesSurname for the first name, it is closer to this trope: he was orphaned at a very young age, and his rather abusive step-parents never bothered to actually ''name'' him, only calling him "little wolf".
