Best TV Show Character Name

What’s your favorite TV show character name?

My Name is Earl has several good ones - Creepy Rodney, Patty the daytime hooker, and Nescobar-A-Lop-Lop, but I think the winner has to be:

Arrested Development’s Bob Loblaw

Patty the Daytime Hooker is my favorite.
Slight hijack - I was in the elevator at work today and someone busted out, “An Yong!”

I love the names and nicknames on “Sopranos.” Like, Salvatore “Big Pussy” Bonpensiero, Phil Leotardo (which should’ve been Lenoardo), Bobby “Bacala” Baccalieri.

Oh, c’mon. There cannot ever be a better name for a character on television than:

Beaver Cleaver.

If we can include characters of TV shows that choose names, I would nominate George Costanza. Buck Naked as his porn name and Art Vandelay as his alter ego both strike me as funny.

If not, then I gotta go with Eunice “Lovey” Wentworth Howell.

SSG Schwartz

Art Vandelay and Martin Van Nostrand (Kramer’s alter-ego) were the inspiration for the latter half of my username-- long, awkward and made-up-sounding names.

Murray Mouse, the accountant, on He and She. And his wife, Minnie.

Sabalom Glitz, from Doctor Who. Band name!

Chad Pfefferle from Bob.

Dwight Schrute.

David Puddy.

Apu Nahasapeemapetalon.

Dr. Mickhead.

Even better, his full name is Dwight Kurt Schrute.

Joe Friday

The second brother Daryl.

Hi, Im your attourney, Tad Disingenuous…

To go along with Bob Loblaw, the incompetent attorney Barry Zuckerkorn.
George Michael Bluth. Just saying it is hilarious!
Wesley Wyndham-Pryce lets you know almost everything about the character, especially in his early days (before he started growing and changing through constant suffering.)

From Benson, Clayton Runamede Endicott III

Socrates Poole from Brisco County Jr. Or hell, Brisco County Jr.

Nostradamus “Bull” Shannon

Nobody snuggles with Max Power. You strap yourself in and feel the "G"s!


I loved all of the newscaster names from Mr. Show, but my favorite was the PotUS’s name on one of the news stories, Whitey Corngood.


eta: I forgot Latka. Silly me.

Maynard G. Krebs, Thalia Menninger, Chatsworth Osborne Jr., and Dobie Gillis
