  • Updated 3 months ago
Many memorable (if not iconic) TV characters have a last name whose particularity is to work as a first name too, and common first name at that.

Which of the TV characters fitting the category is your favorite?

https://www.imdb.com/list/ls094281700/

The rules are:
1/ it's got be a leading character...
2/ ... or an important secondary character (the kind to get a Golden Globe or an Emmy nod for the role)
3/ if more than one character has that name, the most iconic will be taken
4/ No "s" at the end like in Williams, Richards and no rare first names like Cooper or Parker...

Both ends of the name “Grant Ward” from Agents of S.H.I.L.D.
Melinda May: Same show.
Officer LuAnn Corbin , “In The Heat Of The Night” (Corbin Bernstein the actor in L.A. Law).
While I can’t name a specific character, the name of “Lee” serves as a first and last name ( Bruce Lee, Lee Grant).

Thanks dgranger, I don't feel too hot about Corbin, it's not a very common first name... not too sure about May, though it's more common than Corbin.
