  • Angel Moxie: Riley Rosenbaum.
  • The Luminary of Light and the Director of Darkness from Apricot Cookie(s)!.
  • Everybody in Body World: Professor Paul Panther (though Peter Panther might suit him better), Pearl Peach, Lucy Lucido, Billy Borg, Gem Jewels, Johnny James (AKA Johnny Scarhead) and probably everyone else in Boney Borough.

  • Referenced in Comedity, with Garth Graham and Larom Lancaster, in issue Origins #0. The main characters decide that, since they have alliterative names, this is an invitation to become superheroes.
  • Occurs occasionally in The Cyantian Chronicles with "Alpha Akaelae", which an inherited title as well as the name of the original/first Alpha Akaelae. Considering that the Akaelaes are a family of anthropomorphic wolves who rule a society of anthro wolves, using "Alpha" as a title makes a lot of sense.
  • In El Goonish Shive, there's Arthur J. Arthur. The writer joked that he likes to think the "J" stands for "Just". "As in Arthur. Just Arthur."
  • Quite a few in Everyday Heroes.
    • Mister Mighty's real name is Marion Mighty; his two younger brothers are Michael Mighty and Morrison Mighty (the latter two having no powers... "Mighty" is actually the family surname).

    • The local chapter of VilAnon has Prof. Odin Odious and Dr. Winslow Weirdlike.
    • One of the neighbors is Glen Goode, who has two daughters Gloria and Greta.
  • General Protection Fault has Dwayne Duncan, Trudy Trueheart, Trent Terrell and Detective Carl Club.
  • Homestuck gives us Diamonds Droog and Spades Slick.
  • Kaiten Mutenmaru: Sick Solitude.
  • In Kevin & Kell, many examples have given names chosen to match their species-related surnames, such as Fenton Fuscus, Fiona Fennec and Tammy Tussock. Corrie was once known as "Dale Dewclaw" after reversing her given and family names while disguising herself as a wolf (an alias she was forced to keep up longer than she intended), and taking on Ralph's family name after she discovered that she was his daughter, but switched to "Corrie Dewclaw" after her friends found out she wasn't a wolf. Kevin was Kevin Kindle before he married Kell, which resulted in his family disowning him and him and his adopted daughter Lindesfarne taking on his wife's surname.
