Ever notice how the names of female comic characters denote their sexuality and place in society and the names of their male counterparts proclaims their power and alpha-maleness?
Diana Prince: Named after a mythical Goddess, but her surname defines her in terms of a title reserved for male royalty.
Anthony Stark: The surname means devoid of adornment or artifice. With Tony, even in armor, what you see is what you get. Often what you get is an uber-powerful jerk with unlimited resources to crush an opponent.
I'm sure there are many others...
