The Most Notable Names of 2013

The most notable names of 2013—a few of which were awaited with great anticipation– are borne by prominent personages in the realms of religion, royalty, politics, the tech world, and of course, entertainment. Here are our picks for the twelve names most emblematic of 2013—along with a few others that slipstreamed in their wake.


By far the most talked-about character name of the year has been Walter White, the complex lead character in the hit show Breaking Bad. Walter is a Comeback Kid among boys’ names; it’s now at Number 376, as it continues to shed its avuncular image. Another somewhat surprising TV character name on the radar is the biblical Ezekiel from Supernatural.
