    Orange Is the New Black

    I just started watching Season 2 and I noticed some really interesting names. So I thought I would share my favorites. (The only spoiler in this post the name of one new character.)

    Piper - main character; I like the name, but I sense it will soon rise in popularity
    Claudette - from last season; this name sounds like a very elegant queen to me
    Galina - Red's legal name; very close to galena (a mineral whose name I've always loved)
    Suzanne - stately
    Dayanara - this name sounds like a princess and I love it so much; probably my favorite out of all of them
    Lorna - I can't see this coming back in style, but something about it is appealing to me
    Poussey - I would never use it, but this name absolutely rocks imo
    Brook - I prefer this spelling over the ever-popular Brooke
    Aleida - Dayanara's mom who also has an awesome name
    Flaca - clunky but cool; also seems fierce
    Maritza - a refreshing spin on Marissa
    Taslitz - I just like this one, but I don't know why
    Jimmy - I've never heard this on a woman, but I quite like it

    Larry - I hate this character, but the name is clunky yet cool
    Scott - I've always loved this name; it seems firm and dependable
    Cesar - can't express in words how much I love this name

    What are your favorite names from the show?

    I think I like Piper & Claudette the most.
    Alex - for a girl is great but I don't think I would use it.
    Bennett - I know it's the last name for the character from the show, but I also like it for a 1st name.
    Sophia - very popular, would use it... but I guess I mentioned it b/c I like the character.
    Not expecting...yet! Just love names!

    I'm pretty sure Jimmy is a spin on the character's last name (probably James?). Taslitz is also a last name.

    Dayanara is probably my favourite from your list. I had never heard it before the show.

    Others names from the show:

    Tasha (Taystee's real name)
    Wanda (one of the guards)
    Polly (Piper's best friend)
    Finn (Polly's baby)
    Tiffany (Pensatucky's real name)
    Celeste (Piper's grandmother)
    Not a parent, just a name geek!

    I'm a big fan of the show! I like Piper but I have a hard time picturing it on a grown woman. I really like Lorna and Rosa.
