* In ''Film/TheMalteseFalcon'', there's tough, hardy "Sam Spade", exotic foreigner "Mr. Cairo", and a fat, unpleasant fellow called "Gutman".

* {{Implied|Trope}} in ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' with [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen Bee]]. She has [[LoveIsInTheAir mind-control pheromones]] that affect anyone attracted to women, which is at least vaguely similar to a real queen bee, but WordOfGod implies that "Bee" is her actual name rather than a [[AnimalThemedSuperbeing conscious supervillainous motif]]. (It's [[http://www.s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg/search.php?qid=18611 unclear]] if she's a royal by birth, though.)

* The eponymous character in ''Manga/SoulEater'' actually came from a family of musicians who didn't even know they had weapon's blood. Although as ''Not!'' clarifies, his last name was originally Evans and not Eater, his first name is still actually Soul. It's a very literal-minded name to give a Weapon, and the idea he was somehow given it without his parents knowing he was a Weapon is just baffling. And unfair to the poor kid. Not only do you have pointy teeth and unusual looks]], but your name makes you sound like a monster. ''Not!'' explains away the sheer number of cases of this trope, because - as with Soul Evans - students register at the school with whatever name they like. As a result, there's a mish-mash of [[AerithAndBob "normal" and unusual]] names throughout the cast.
