I love Doctor Who and the companions have definitely had an impact on names I love – Rose, Clara and Amelia are my favourites.

I’ve never actually watched Doctor Whom, but this makes me wonder if I shouldn’t start, if only for the names. Great list! My favorites – Rose, Melody ‘River Song’, and Clara.

As a Whovian- and detester of spoilers- I really wish this blog had been written without so many of them!
I love Romana, Rose and River the most, not just their names, but also their characters. However, Donna’s name fits her the best, the last name Noble coming to describe her in so many ways.

Doctor Who has really gotten me to appreciate the name Clara! Oswin and Oswald are excellent too – and great shout-out to Ace!

Ahh! This article definitely should have had a spoiler alert at the beginning! I’m in the U.S. and I haven’t met Clara yet.
I have to say, Rose Tyler did make me like the name Rose, which I had never cared for before.

Rose and River will always be two if my all time favorite names. Rose is my favorite companion but the name River is so interesting on a girl. (Shoutout to River Tam from Firefly.)

Sorry for the spoilers! We’re up to date in Australia and I didn’t realise that wasn’t the case in other countries

I love Amy’s name – Amelia Pond is so storybook and magical. Doctor Who has made me appreciate a lot of names, like Rose, Martha, Sarah Jane and Oswin. I think Clara Oswin Oswald is absolutely fantastic, but I can’t love her name as much because I don’t love the character.

I have to admit, whilst I liked Clara on a ‘oh-that’s-nice’ kind of level before Doctor Who, now I love it and it is, in part, thanks to the character.

Love Doctor Who! I love Clara– the character, but her name is good too. I felt it was a bit boring before the show, but her peppy character has breathed some life into it. Lovely!
Rose, Dorothy and Amelia are great, too. Melody has a nice sound (no pun intended), but it’s a big hippie to me…. love River Song.

I love Doctor Who! Out of these I love Amelia, Clara, Rose, Romana, Sarah Jane, River and Melody and I hope to use these in the future as they were all amazing companians with brilliant names.

Not a major fan of Doctor Who despite everyone else who has been banging on about the Christmas special I purposely chose not to watch it still the names are lush, my favourites are…

Fave companions are Rose and Amy Pond – but River Song is such a fantastic character too. Since she became a companion, the name Clara has really grown on me too, just as Cora became a favourite since Downton Abbey!

What about Martha – she’s in the picture, but not mentioned. I like that name too, but hard not to associate it with Martha Stewart.

Best programme ever! Doctor Who has made me fall in love with the names Amelia and Clara, which are now my favourite girls’ names, and River Song is an amazing character with a fantastic name
