** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E7TheZygonInvasion "The Zygon Invasion"]] introduces us to the cold-blooded leader of group of insurgent aliens willing to start a war on earth. She orders people killed. She organizes murders. And her name is ... Bonnie? (Even the Doctor rejects that, choosing to call her "Zygella" instead.). There is actually some logic to this since she is part of first generation of Zygons living in hiding on Earth, and she [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything has grown bitter over her minority status and her being forced to "act human" in order to be accepted by society]].

* Inverted in an episode of ''Series/EmptyNest'' where a small lost dog charms the Weston family while destroying the household and the larger family dog Dreyfuss getting the blame. When the real owner appears, he explains to Harry Weston what the little bastard really is and calls him the appropriately named "Satan".
* An episode of ''Series/{{Eureka}}'' had a scientist genetically engineer a microscopic organism that ate radiation. It ended up growing into a creature that was a direct nod to ''Film/TheBlob1958''. It was referred to as his "pet", as in "pet project". Its name? Spot, as in "spot remover".

** And naming the ship ''Serenity''? Not remotely as comforting as it sounds.
*** This has even more layers. The ship was named after Serenity Valley, which was the site of the last and bloodiest battle of the Browncoat Uprising, where ''Serenity'''s captain lost his cause, his friends, his idealism and his faith in God.

* Spot the dragon from ''Series/TheMunsters'' (never seen in full).
* On ''Series/TheMuppetShow'' there are quite a few more grotesque looking monsters. The biggest one, 9 feet tall, shaggy, with fangs and beastly strong is named.... Sweetums. Sweetums usually plays characters that really ''are'' pretty friendly, once you get past their appearance. In the original ''Muppet Movie'', Sweetums was referred to as "Jack", though he explains "Jack not name, jack job!": He ''lifts cars'' for a living. The name originated in his debut appearance a few years before ''The Muppet Show'' in ''Film/TalesFromMuppetlandTheFrogPrince'', where he was the henchman of a witch named Taminella, who treated him like a pet and also called him things like "my little Bunnykins".

* ''Series/PeakyBlinders'' sounds like the name of the tomboyish girl next door in a Nickolodeon cartoon... but is in fact the name of an extremely vicious street gang. The name comes from the way they use their signature weapon, a ''peaky'' cap with razorblades sewn into the brim, to ''blind'' people who stand in their way by cutting out their eyes.
** In Season 5, they run up against a gang called "The Billy Boys", who sound like a silly bunch, and indeed, their introductory scene has them emerging from the forest singing a song many viewers will recognize as a sports chant associated with the Rangers Football Club. They're actually a ViolentGlaswegian gang who serve as muscle for the Union of British Fascists, and a ''very'' nasty organization.

* TheFairFolk was one of the older names for fairies. The name is deliberately ironic; they were anything but fair, but calling them by more accurate names might draw their ire.

* One of the most menacing figures in Aztec mythology is the WarGod Huitzilopochtli. He's known for having killed most of his 400 siblings shortly after being born and a lot of Aztec human sacrifices were dedicated to him. His name means "Left-Handed Hummingbird".
