TV Names: Who’s the Next Khaleesi?

The Fall TV shows are bursting with amazing new name possibilities!

The TV debut season is in full swing, and we’re in the midst of seeing the debuts of dozens and dozens of new scripted shows on TV and the major streaming services. Out of the plethora of character names on these shows, are there any that will break out as baby names the way Khaleesi and Arya and Daenerys did in recent seasons? Here are some that might have a chance—if, of course, their shows catch on.


Granted, this character name in Minority Report is not new, flashy or creative, but it brings up the question of whether an attractive contemporary actress—in this case Laura Regan, with another actor as Agatha as a child) can rejuvenate the image of a fusty Great-Great-Aunt name, which has been off the Top 1000 since 1940.

Oh no – this post is making me upset! As someone who doesn’t watch a lot of TV, and the shows I do watch are usually older, seeing that some TV shows have taken Agatha and Wolfgang scare me! Two of my favorite names. I thought they were safe from popularity! I really hope they don’t catch on…just fly over the watcher’s head. With the other names, I’m normally pretty open minded with word names, but Dazzle? I don’t think it will catch on. At least I hope it doesn’t…I can only see a teen mom using that one. And Kara…isn’t that one already pretty high on the popularity scale? I know at least five Kara/Caras. Maybe it’s just where I live. I can really see Veil catching on, but probably spelled Vale. Jessamy and Diver too.

I agree, kitchi1. I love Agatha and I would hate to see it blowing up.

Jessamy is cute. Nimah seems like a typo of Niamh….
