The only thing I can remember is "echo Looking for Sibylle..." in AUTOEXEC.BAT from old (MS-)DOS times. It was the time when F-PROT was a common tool on everyone's PC.

I can't share other virus names and stories because I never used platforms that had viruses / virii and trojans as features, and I didn't pay much attention to other peoples' infection stories. :-)
