REALLY EXCELLENT FICTIONAL TV CHARACTER NAMES

Here's lookin at you, G.O.B.
  1. Topanga Lawrence, Boy Meets World
    Topanga!!!
  2. Tony Soprano, The Sopranos
    Just an awesome name, especially with the Jersey accent. Totally believable as a mob boss name but not too much.
  3. Daria Morgendorffer, Daria
    Gr8 name.
  4. Rose Quartz, Steven Universe
    I love all the names in Steven Universe, especially the gems, but Rose Quartz is the best.
  5. Kelso, That 70s Show
    So good.
  6. Laura Palmer, Twin Peaks
    Who killed Laura Palmer? Iconic.
  7. Urkel, Family Matters
    Did I do that?
  8. Stringer Bell, The Wire
    Idris Elba makes p much any role iconic, but Stringer Bell is a name that I find particularly sinister in its understatedness.
  9. Omar Little, The Wire
    bc how many times have you heard the phrase "Omar from The Wire?"
  10. Taco, The League
    His name is Taco??? Unclear if he has a real name.
  11. Asami Sato, Avatar: Legend of Korra
    Obsessed w this name and w Asami.
  12. Bellamy Blake, The 100
    Had never heard the name Bellamy before this show and I think it's so good.
  13. "Chalky" White, Boardwalk Empire
    Congrats to Michael K. Williams for being so iconic his characters made it on here twice. Chalky is the shit.
  14. Jack Shephard, Lost
    Good bc of what it conveys. "Jack" aka one of the most regular guy names ever, "Shephard" indicates he is a leader, "Jack Shephard" as a whole equals wow this is the most boring character ever.
  15. Literally everyone on Arrested Development
    G.O.B., Maeby, George Michael, Buster Bluth, Ann Veal, Tobias Fünke, Bob Loblaw, Barry Zuckerkorn, this show has so many amazing names it's ridiculous
  16. Don Draper, Mad Men
    Smart, sleek, iconic.
  17. Francis Underwood, House of Cards
    So sinister!

  25. Clarissa Darling, Clarissa Explains it All
    Points also to her bro, Ferguson.

    A lot of Seinfeld characters actually...they made their names unforgettable. Elaine, Kramer, Newman...

    "Foreign Exchange Student"

    AANG. It's just so good!
  33. Spock, Star Trek
    Iconic!
  34. Fonzie, Happy Days
    Arthur "the Fonz" Fonzarelli: so good.
  35. Lorelei & Rory Gilmore, Gilmore Girls
    Both "Rory" and "Lorelei" are v fun to say. I guess they are okay names. Def have embedded themselves in pop culture.
  36. Patty Mayonnaise, Doug
    ❤️
  37. Ari Gold, Entourage
    The name "Ari" is great and he kills it in this show.
  38. Veronica Mars, Veronica Mars

    Lolololllllololol, this one is my fave.
