Baby name inspiration can come from everywhere. Your favorite books, your favorite songs, even your favorite places. If you’re a huge television lover (basically, all of us), you might even have a list of TV-inspired baby names to consider. The wonderful thing about using television as inspiration is that you don’t have to let the characters define your baby’s personality. Not all characters are good, compassionate, upstanding citizens, but that doesn’t make their name any less cool.
You don’t even have to be a fan of a show to appreciate a great name. TV writers have to be creative, right? They’re constructing an entire world and, in doing so, give birth to characters with incredible personalities, interests, and — if all goes well — a moral compass. It’s pretty amazing when you think about all of the things writers have to consider when choosing a moniker for these fictitious personas. And, for the most part, they do a damn good job at it. Hello, it doesn’t get much more awesome than The Fonz. So if you’re looking for some baby name inspiration and want a big ol’ dollop of creativity (with maybe some touches of comedy and drama), these 15 TV-inspired baby names are sure to help. With a wide range of characters, from unique names to classics that stand the test of time, television has given us some great monikers for your little babe. Those writers know what they’re doing, so shamelessly steal away.
