Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })So, you're watching a new show on TV. You notice the series has a gloomy-looking Goth character and you wonder what they named her. Maybe something dark like "Raven" or "Misery" or "Lady Death".
They reveal her name, and it's... Sunshine? The gloomy-looking character's name is Sunshine?
Yes, sometimes, a character is given a name that is ironic considering their personality, lifestyle, or whatnot. Often, this is Played for Laughs, but more serious examples do exist.
See Ironic Nickname for cases when the character's nickname, instead of their given name, is ironic. Subtrope of Non-Indicative Name.
Related to Fluffy the Terrible, where a scary monster or animal is given a decidedly non-scary name, Deathbringer the Adorable, where a cute, relatively harmless animal is given an imposing name, and Tom the Dark Lord, which applies Special Person, Normal Name to an evil character. Contrast, of course, Meaningful Name.

Bleach:
Baraggan Louisenbairn, the Segunda Espada, has a name inspired by a Mexican architect, Luis Barragán. Despite the fact that Las Noches (Barragan's base of operations) didn't even have walls or a roof when Sousuke Aizen showed up to take control.
Kaname Tosen named the Proto-Arrancar White even though its body is pitch black. Aizen commented on the irony. Since Tosen is blind, he wouldn't know that White was colored black. That said, a blind person shouldn't name things after colors.

In Miraculous Ladybug, the titular character's love interest is Adrien Agreste. Agreste means "rustic," which doesn't describe Adrien's wealthy upbringing in a Gilded Cage at all. His father Gabriel is a subversion; "agreste" is also the French name for the grayling butterfly, and Gabriel is secretly Hawk Moth.

Stardew Valley gives us the purple-haired Love Interest Abigail, whose name means "father's joy". Certain conversations with her family members will come just short of explicitly stating that she's the byproduct of her mother Caroline having a dalliance with the town's resident wizard (who also has purple hair), while revealing that her relationship with her alleged father Pierre is somewhat strained.

Protagonist Sol Badguy from Guilty Gear. He may be a lazy, rough-around-the-edges Anti-Hero, but he can be counted on to do the right thing when it comes down to it. Admittedly, his name is an alias inspired by his past actions getting him in trouble with the authorities, who gave this mysterious fugitive the codename "Badguy."

In RWBY: Leonardo Lionheart is the headmaster of Haven Academy, which means he should be one of the greatest Huntsmen, and therefore warrior heroes, alive. His name effectively means 'lion-hearted lion', compounding the bravery of a lion twice over in two different names. However, he is inspired by the Cowardly Lion and is a timid man who collapses to the ground in shock when he opens his door to find a group of armed heroes about to knock his door in. His role in the story is defined by his fear of what the Big Bad is capable of and the possibility that there is nothing the Big Good can do about it. While Raven tries to dismiss his guilt as it being common sense and good survival instincts to give in to his fears, he is all too aware of his own cowardice and the depths to which he has sunk because of it.

In Dawn of War Retribution, an ork battlewagon is fought at one point. Now a battlewagon is a blasphemy against the laws of physics and engineering, looks like the unholy offspring of a road train and a tank, has more guns than a Crazy Survivalist and more spikes than a Tin Tyrant. The name of this monstrosity? Daisy.

In-game, the last name of Jon Irenicus in Baldur's Gate II means "The Shattered One"; not counting Bhaal, he's the last person you'd think of to act in a gentle manner. However, in Greek the name "Irene" means "peace"; in Christian theology, an irenicist is someone who advocates using reason and peaceful methods to win arguments (as opposed to a polemicist).

Gordon Freeman from the Half-Life series. Despite his last name, "The Freeman" is anything but free, as his series is the poster child for linear stage design in First Person Shooters, to the point of it being an in-universe plot point that he's a Cosmic Plaything subtly directed and railroaded through the game by the otherworldly G-Man, only to be unceremoniously dumped into stasis when he's completed his mission until he's needed again.

Modern Warfare:
The first name of the terrorist you spend most of the game fighting (Vladimir Makarov) means "ruler of peace".
Shepherd is usually the nickname of someone who takes care of a group of people under his watch as best as he can, as well as protecting them from danger. General Shepherd, on the other hand, is rather notorious for disregarding "danger-close", and ends up betraying (and killing) members of his Task Force 141 once they outlive their usefulness. Though this may be somewhat subverted, considering his actions were primarily influenced from losing 30,000 of his men in the previous installment.

The Carters from Lords and Ladies: the daughters, as is traditional, are all named after virtues (Hope, Patience, Chastity), but then Mr and Mrs Carter got a bit confused and named all the sons after vices (Bestiality, Covetousness, Anger). None of the children live up to their names.
Adora Belle Dearheart from Going Postal is anything but adorable. Most people who know her call her "Killer". Her love interest, Moist von Lipwig, calls her "Spike". Mind you, she's a wonderful person, just not "adorable".
Captain Murderer from Snuff is a smuggler (but quite attached to his name).

World of Warcraft has the high elves, or quel'dorei, which means "children of noble birth", the remnant of a larger race that primarily rebranded themselves blood elves and sided with the Horde, while those that still called themselves high elves stayed with the Alliance. While both of their names would suggest that they keep their bloodline pure and live in luxury, the few of them left are exiles from their own homeland who breed with humans and live in human cities and elven hunting lodges. Meanwhile, the blood elves retain their racial purity and still live in their ancestral home of Quel'Thalas, ironically making them closer to classical depictions of high elves than the ones who still call themselves such. Pointed out by one of the Arc Villains of the Suramar storyline in Legion:

''Hazbin Hotel has Angel Dust as the name of an immoral Jerkass demon in Hell. Note that this is actually also somewhat meaningful at the same time due to Angel Dust being a common slang term for PCP, and the character is quite fond of drugs.

Persona 5:
Ichiryusai Madarame means "Speckle-eyed supreme artist." While Madarame might once be actually a supreme artist, he's now been reduced to scamming his disciples in cold blood.
Masayoshi Shido means "Lion Child of Justice." Aside that Shido is a Corrupt Politician who wants to make Japan a fascist dictatorship regardless of how many people he sacrificed.
The Royal expansion adds Sumire Yoshizawa, whose given name means "violet flowers" in japanese which represent "honesty" in flower language. Instead, after her sister Kasumi died of a car crash trying to prevent her from becoming roadkill by a jealousy-induced fit, she asked Takuto to turn her into Kasumi to cope with her Survivor Guilt and to artificially inflate her non-existent confidence. This basically goes right against what she told Akechi about when asked about the Phantom Thieves in the protagonist's chat with the two, in which she states that people should solve their own problems instead of relying on others, effectively making her anything but honest.

Yo-Kai Watch:
For somebody named Whisper, he's far from somebody who speaks quietly.
Faux Kappa basically means "false kappa", which is not true for the character, who is a real one and his behaviour is closer to that of a real kappa compared to Walkappa, as his Trademark Favourite Food are cucumbers, while Walkappa prefers to eat pizza and sushi. In fact, Nate seeks out for Faux Kappa to help him on a school report about kappas, since Walkappa was basically useless.

Lex Luthor is the archenemy of Superman, the Superhero, and a major criminal mastermind. "Lex" is usually short for some variation of his current name, Alexander (his real name was also been given as Alexei or Alexis in the Gold and Silver/Bronze Ages, respectively), which is derived from the Greek word "Aléxandros" meaning "protector of men". "Lex" itself is Latin for "law".

The urban legend/conspiracy theory of the Polybius arcade cabinet takes its name from Polybius, a Greek historian. Polybius the historian believed that the most trustworthy form of history was that which the historian could personally verify, preferably through firsthand knowledge. Polybius the legend is infamous for having essentially no firsthand knowledge or verification that it actually existed (the first claims of it surfaced over a decade after it was supposedly active).

Toonsylvania: Fred Deadman from the Night of the Living Fred segments had a deceased dog named Frisky who he carried around and treated as if he were still alive. The word "frisky" means being full of energy, which makes it very ironic that it is being used as the name of an immobile corpse.

Cain, on the other hand, is a staunchly loyal knight to the bitter end.

That Mitchell and Webb Look has Professor Death, he who created a gigantic steampunk barcode reader and had no problem calling it the "Giant Death Ray" without thinking what people obviously assumed it was meant to do. The Running Gag within the sketches in which he appears is that all of the inventions he created are meant for peace (even if the names and appearances don't make them look that way), and he instantly smashes them in a screaming fury whenever someone else points out their potential applications as military weapons.

In Steven Universe:
Real life Lapis Lazulis dissolves in water, compared to the character herself.
Peridot's name is a for a gemstone often associated with good luck, peace, and success. However, Peridot seems to have bad luck, failure, and violence with the Crystal Gems. It became less ironic later on when joining the Crystal Gems.
Amythest, the gemstone, literally means "Avoiding drunkness," and represents stability, soberity, and balance. The character itself is a hedonist who is all about enjoying the earthly pleasures for the kicks, likes physical fighting, and is the most prone to mischief.
Jasper as a stone is notable for being nurturing, protecting, caring, and providing mental stability. The character is none of those and becomes more insane as the show goes on.
Sugilite stones are said to serve as protection from anger and negative feelings. The fusion Sugilite is more or less the psychotic Token Evil Teammate.
Opal would sometimes forget what she's doing. Real life Opal's are meant to prevent forgetfulness.
Malachite is associated with successful practical relationships, while Malachite's parts ends up at each other's throats.
Diamonds are seen as symbols of innocence and the integrity of moral values. The Great Diamond Authority, however, is far from anything Diamonds represent.
Yellow Diamond, however, deserves a mention. She is are the birthstone for Virgo, and Virgos are associated with order, intelligence, and cold calculation. When she finally appears in the show proper, she does fit the bill at first, but as her talk with Peridot goes on, it becomes readily apparent that for however much a being of logic she might be, she's clearly also a vengeful and spiteful being who would gladly destroy the Earth for payback against the rebellion.
Then there's White Diamond;
White diamonds symbolize purity and clarity, but White Diamond embodies madness and corruption. White Diamond is known for her terrifying anger, comes across to viewers as decidedly off, and participated in a corruption blast that mutated countless gems.
White diamonds also symbolize love, given that they are traditional components of women's wedding rings. White Diamond implies herself to be devoid of love or empathy.
A Pearl is one of the birthstones for Gemini, which represents a free mind. The Pearls in Homeworld are all a slave race, and are treated like an object instead of a actual person.
Rubies are associated with nobility, and are actually rarer than a Diamond, while the ones in this show are a expandable soldier caste.
Also, they are considered to be gems that sharpen the human's mind. Rubies are expected to be dumb and forgettable in Homeworld's society.
In the Off-Colors:
Rhodonite of the off-color gems is said to decrease anxiety, and she's a Nervous Wreck
Padparadscha sapphires are one of the rarest gems in the world - mostly found in Sri Lanka - and are among the most valuable varieties of sapphires. The first one we meet in the show is considered an undesirable in Homeworld's system, though it might just be this one specifically. Because padparadschas are rare in the real world, buyers often have to settle for less desirable "cloudy" padparadschas, which may be why this one has "cloudy" vision.
Emeralds are meant to represent love, peace, and luck, something which the character emerald doesn't have in her debut apperance.

Bayonetta: Many angels and some demons have names that do not fit how they act. Fortitudo, named after and representing the Cardinal Virtue of Courage, actively avoids fighting Bayonetta during the game's first few chapters until she flat-out provokes him. Iustitia/justice is the only one of the Virtues to attack without saying anything first, with no warning, and by far looks the most Lovecraftian of the four. The sequel introduces Sloth, who moves fast and is one of the most challenging demon enemies in the entire game.

Lampshaded twice in The Fifth Season:
The story is set on "The Stillness", a continent rife with earthquakes, supervolcanoes, tsunamis, and other seismic phenomena that periodically turn the place into a Death World. The narration calls it "a land of quiet and bitter irony".
Graduates of the Fulcrum are given a rock-themed Meaningful Rename, a nod to their Dishing Out Dirt powers. A man with extremely black skin turns out to be named Alabaster, which Syenite assumes to have been a joke on someone's part.

One of the "signature hero" NPCs in RuneScape is named Xenia, which refers to the Greek tradition of Sacred Hospitality. The character Xenia is a duplicitous Trickster Mentor who deliberately throws strangers into peril just to see what they do.
All the behemoth monsters in Daemonheim have a stomping attack... except the one actually named "Stomp".

With the Light:
Hikaru's full name is Azuma Hikaru, or "light of the East", and upon hearing this name, his new father Masato's first hope was that Hikaru would grow up to climb the corporate ladder. Which... he most likely won't do.
Miyu means "beautiful feather", but she acts far less delicate than her name would suggest, as does the fifth-grade kendo champ Misaki, whose name means "beautiful blossoms".

Sunless Sea, as usual for Failbetter Games' writing, tends not to use names for anyone and calls everyone by a nickname. And while usually the nickname is truthful, being given in-universe and letting everyone keep track of who it refers to, the Delightful Adventuress is clearly meant to be ironic, as the woman in question is a jackass putting up a facade of intrepid adventure who tries to screw everyone over when they're not looking and whose actual interests in a mission that is most certainly going to have actual casualties are stupidly petty, essentially doing it all for the sake of insulting a rival.

A Song of Ice and Fire
Two of the Freys have names that are ironic in terms of who they are named for. The severely mentally retarded Aegon (generally known as Jinglebell because his Jerkass grandfather makes him act as a jester) is named after a great military leader and ruler. Similarly, Rhaegar Frey, a slimy and totally mediocre man, is named after a Pretty Boy Knight in Shining Armor who was both a sensitive intellectual and a military genius.
In-universe, "Spotted Pate" is a folklore character who, while dim-witted, was Born Lucky and always succeeds/makes nobles look ridiculous (basically the equivalent to Jack, Hans, etc. in our folklore). As a result, it is a popular name for Westerosi peasants. However, (perhaps because they are peasants) most of the Pates in-story are singularly unlucky:
At one point, the outlaw Tom O'Sevens is listing his grievances against the Lannisters, and he names at least five Pates he knew whose deaths he blames on them, including his cousin Ser Pate who was killed in a tourney by Gregor Clegane.
Another Pate is the royal whipping boy and gets flogged for bad deeds by the Princes (or just when Cersei wants to teach her son a lesson).
Pate of Oldtown was murdered and had his identity stolen by a shape-shifting assassin.
The Brave Companions is a mercenary band of criminals, psychos and exiles from across the narrow sea. Despite their title, they aren't particularly renowned for bravery, being mostly cowards that sides for whoever is winning at the moment and are better at hurting innocents than fighting. They are better known for other nicknames such as "Bloody Mummers" or "Footman", but don't dare to call them that to their faces if you want to keep your limbs.

Lampshaded in Dead Like Me when George wonders who on earth thought to name her shrewish, perpetually aggravated mother "Joy". Becomes Harsher in Hindsight when Joy gets more Character Focus and not-entirely-Happy Flashbacks to show her struggling as a parent while their home life becomes colder and more distant, and when Joy's Blithe Spirit mother (who, presumably, named her) shows up and makes light of Joy's very real problems.

Lucky in BattleBots seems to be an unintentional example. More often than not, something happens in Lucky's fights that causes it to break and stop working, whether that be the opponent's weapon managing to hit a 2-millimeter gap that disables its wheels or unexplained malfunctions that never came up during pre-match testing. As the unofficial blog puts it:

Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei:
The given name of Nozomu Itoshiki means hope, which is ironic in light of his deeply pessimistic personality. It ends up becoming a Meaningful Name though in that due to a quirk in Japanese, the way his name is spelled in a western way (left to right rather than up to down) leads it to being misread as Zetsubou, meaning "Despair" or "Hopeless".
On the opposite side his brother Mikoto's name is written with the Kanji for 'Life', a Meaningful Name given he's a doctor by trade. When added to his family name in the same way, it becomes the Ironic Name Zetsume, meaning "Death".

Skies of Arcadia: The town of Esperanza, whose name means hope, doesn't really live up to its name. This might have been true in the past, when the city was first established, however, by the time your party gets there, it's anything but. Somber music plays in the background, the entire city is run down and rusting away, and its inhabitants are a jaded, despair-filled bunch. If the irony isn't glaringly obvious, one of the tavern patrons spells it out for you.

The Bible
In the book of Ruth, Naomi (whose name means "pleasant") lampshades her ironic name when she returns to Israel, telling the women of her hometown to call her "Mara" ("bitter") because her life has been anything but pleasant up until that point.
Absalom's name combines the words for "father" and "peace." He rebelled against his father, King David, and caused a civil war.
"Abimelech" means "my father is king." One bearer was the son of Gideon, a hero who was Offered the Crown but refused it, although that didn't stop Abimelech from trying to take over the country himself.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure:
Stardust Crusaders:
The "Steel" in Steely Dan's name would make one think he's a physically strong or brave character, yet he's a Dirty Coward with a physically weak Stand.
N'Doul's Stand, Geb, is named after the Egyptian Earth god, yet its ability allows N'Doul to control water.
Vento Aureo's Ghiaccio's name is Italian for "Ice". While this is meant to refer to his Stand ability, it's also quite ironic when his personality is anything but icy.
Steel Ball Run:
As apart of the Musical Theme Naming of the series, Johnny Joestar is a paraplegic, yet his Stand, Tusk, is named after the song by Fleetwood Mac, a song commonly played by marching bands.
Similar to the above, Funny Valentine eventually gains an ability called "D4C Love Train" during the climax. Valentine's goal is to use Love Train to redirect all of the United States' misfortune onto the rest of the world, leaving Americans standing above everyone else. The song "Love Train" by the O'Jays is about uniting the world and spreading peace, which is pretty much the opposite of what Valentine is trying to do.

Terrence's name means "a thoughtful and good natured friend." He spends a pretty good chunk of his screentime attempting to sabotage his best friend's happiness so they can spend more time together.
Henry means "home." Henry is an orphan who's spent most of his life being shifted from foster home to foster home.

In Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, Alex finally reunites with his lost parents when he and his friends find themselves in Africa after a failed plane ride back to New York. During a ceremony, Alex (who unbeknownst to him thinks its a dance-off) must fight and defeat another lion as a rite of passage into the pride as alpha lion. Alex's father's scheming rival, Makunga, tricks him into parring with a lion named "Tsetse". When the time comes for the rite of passage, Alex does indeed choose Tsetse, who turns out to be something like the Incredible Lion Hulk, and defeats him in one blow. The name comes from tsetse fly, a genus of flies, which actually are EXTREMELY dangerous because they carry African sleeping sickness so it may not be so ironic at all.

Robot novels: The "Spacers" are humans from the fifty interstellar colony worlds. While the Spacer name is used by both people from Earth and the Spacers themselves, the Spacer Worlds are so utopian in terms of wealth and standard of living, and the Spacers themselves Long-Lived and spoiled by luxury supported by armies of robot servants, that they have become chronically risk-averse, and the vast majority of them never actually leave the planets that they are born on to engage in space travel.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic:
Fluttershy has a pet bunny rabbit named Angel. His behavior, however, is far from angelic, hovering somewhere between Jerkass and Jerk with a Heart of Gold Depending on the Writer.
Fancy Pants is definitely fancy (as one of the richest and most influential unicorns in Canterlot), but like most ponies he doesn't wear pants.
Zesty Gourmand from "Spice Up Your Life!" is an influential food critic who's forced every restaurant in Canterlot's Restaurant Row to serve what she considers to be ideal cuisine: bland and almost flavorless (not at all "zesty") and in tiny portions (not at all what a "gourmand" would want to eat).

Survivor Dogs:
Sweet is not sweet. When Lucky meets her in the first book, she's a timid and easily frightened dog, but when they meet again in the second book she's the stern and serious beta of the Wild Pack. As an alpha, Sweet is a Reasonable Authority Figure but she's not to be reckoned with.
Lucky's name zigzags between being an ironic name and being a Meaningful Name depending on what's happening. Alpha even calls Lucky's name a "cruel joke" before kicking him out of the pack. Lucky always ends up okay in the end, but he's always attracted trouble and misfortune.

The name Petal is usually for a soft-spoken and kind she-cat. But as for Petal from Dawn Of The Clans...as Thunder says: "Which cat named her 'Petal'? There's nothing soft about her!"
The character Quick Water hates water, much to the amusement of Turtle Tail.
Subverted with Alderheart. He was originally named Alderkit after the deadly snake, but he's always been very sensitive and self-doubting. As a result of his kind nature, he was given the suffix "-heart" as an adult.

While it's played for laughs in the main show, the link to his name is never made. However, in Chibi, this link is directly referenced. When the students decide to go on holiday to the beacon, Ren has to drag Neptune across the floor, complaining that he cannot believe someone with Neptune's name could be so scared of the water.

Handy from Happy Tree Friends is a combination of this and Meaningful Name. The ironic part is that he doesn't actually have hands, instead having bandaged nubs in their place.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer:
The show seems to love doing this. You'd think that characters with names like Angel, Faith, Harmony and Glory would be heroic characters, but they're all villains. While Angel does pull a Heel–Face Turn eventually, he's still a vampire and becomes more of an Anti-Hero than a shining example of heroism. Faith also does a Heel–Face Turn thanks to Angel. Harmony eventually becomes Angel's secretary. She's still evil, just not very good at it. Of the four, Glory is the only really purely evil one (and she's at least Faux Affably Evil).
It should be noted that Angel specifically picked his name to be ironic (his real name is Liam): he is the "vampire with the angelic face." His evil side, when it resurfaces, is referred to with the much more intimidating name of "Angelus".

Space Patrol Luluco has Midori Save-The-World. Despite a very heroic sounding last name, she's the Token Evil Teammate. It becomes a Meaningful Name in the epilogue when she becomes chief of the Space Patrol Ogikubo branch.

The Greater Good: Anyone who knows the word meaning would expect a planet named Fecundia to be a bountiful agri-world. Instead, it's a heavily polluted note to the point where tithe workers are advised to get life-support augmetics so they'll last longer Forge World.

Durarara!! has Shizuo Heiwajima whose name means "quiet hero/peaceful island". Shizuo is a Hot-Blooded man with Hair-Trigger Temper who can barely spend a day without getting into a violent fight — especially if Izaya is involved.

On House of Anubis it seems that Joy's name will never fit her life, considering she was kidnapped, the boy she loved for a while rejected her constantly and rather harshly, her friends all seemed to like Nina more, and when she finally fell in love again it was ripped away from her at the end. No wonder her nickname is Joyless...

Mike Stoker, both the character on Emergency! and the Real Life firefighter who played him. Historically, stokers kept fires burning in places like metal foundries and steamships. Mike, however, put them out.

In one episode of The Critic, Jay rescues a puppy he finds in an alley and names him Tiny. The dog ends up growing to be so big, that at one point, he manages to eat a burglar that tries to break into Jay's apartment! Or at least it's implied that he did since there was a ski mask and grappling hook in his food dish, and he coughs up a flashlight.

In Kingdom Hearts:
The Illuminator Heartless shrouds the field in darkness.
Xion's name is pronounced "shion". The shion flower represents "remembrance" and is used as a gift to say "I won't forget you." She suffered a Ret-Gone. However, Sora and the others gradually start remembering her again and it is implied Sora will be able to bring her back.

Benigno's name in Pedro Almodóvar's Talk to Her translates as "harmless", and it certainly seems to fit the sweet, demure nurse, until it is revealed he has raped Alicia, the coma patient in his care.
