Last week for Top Ten Tuesday I explored the Top 10 Book Character Names I Came to Love. Because I enjoyed creating the list so much, I decided to do it again for TV characters!
1. Peter, Fringe
2. Olivia, Fringe
3. Lincoln, Fringe
I was already kind of liking the name Lincoln, and even came up with the name for a character in a story. I also had a friend name her son Lincoln (and he’s totally adorable). Then Lincoln Lee came along on Fringe and made me like it more! I like that it’s unique without being strange.
4. Julian, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
5. Tucker (from Charles “Trip” Tucker), Star Trek: Enterprise
6. Jadzia, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
7. Kate, Castle
For some reason, I don’t really care for nicknames. Maybe it’s because the name Amy isn’t conducive for nicknames, who knows. I’ve always liked the name Kathryn, which is Kate’s actual name, but Kate made me like Kate.
8. Ryan (from Kevin Ryan), Castle
9. Kaylee, Firefly
10. Jayne (but NOT for a guy), Firefly
Between Jane Austen stories and Firefly, I came to appreciate the “plain” name Jane more, particularly with the spelling Jayne. But Jayne in Firefly is a bitter guy, and I definitely would not do that to my son.
What about you? What are your favorite TV character names?
