You'd be surprised how many stories assign tag names to some fictional characters.
Example 1: When Zeus fathered Apollo and Artemis (to use the Greek names), their mother was called Leto; but Leto simply means "lady."
Example 2: In the original Welsh story of the quest for the Holy Grail, the knight who succeeds is called Peredur; but old Welsh Peredur and modern Welsh parod mean "the prepared" or "the ready" (compare the Latin paratus.)
Example 3: Jane Yolen's fantasy novella The Wild Hunt features a character called Gerund (as in leaping, hopping, skipping;a gerund is the present participle of a verb when it is used as an adjective).
