Throwback Baby: The Best Baby Names from 80s TV

Who wouldn't want a name that means "Sea Warrior?"

There's nothing worse than picking out a baby name specifically because you can't think of anyone who has it, and then realizing that it has suddenly jumped to the number one spot of the year thanks to some pop culture fad. This ended up being the case with my son (THANKS, TWILIGHT!).

Needless to say, you might be looking for some inspiration outside of the mainstream. Might I suggest these 80s names from some of our favourite TV shows?


Anne is one of those people who usually speaks to others in memes, pop culture references, and SAT words. On those occasions she can be understood at all, she likes to entertain others with a sense of humour usually described by friends as “hilarious—once you get to know her.”
