    So, what character names are the most fabulous, interesting, creative, peculiar etc?
    All names are on IMDB, in case you can't remember every character.
    All names are eligible, including impostorous, dreamed up and Return To Eden names.​

    Here's a double whammy, but I prefer the actor's real name!​

    I still can't get over the fact that Hunt Block is someone's real name. (I just checked wikipedia in case it was an assumed name, but Huntington Block is actually his really name)

    Another weird one. Sounds more like an address than a name.

    Not having watched FC I had it in my head that it had some ridiculously exotic names. I think it's because of the prominence of Chase Gioberti whose name sounds like the title of a bad Italian slasher film.

    I've just looked up some character names and they're not as out there as I'd previously believed. Which is a relief as a (hopefully) future viewer but a slight disappointment for this round.


    Don't ask me why but I have occasional urges to call him "Blunt Hock".

    Al Spanky
    Knots Landing
    Trips off the tongue and impossible to say without smiling.



    Lance Cumson
    Falcon Crest
    The most porn star name of any Soapland inhabitant.



    Suzanne Spanky

    Knots Landing
    She may have married into the name, but the alliteration makes this one fly.

    (One would think the alliteration would make Suzanne's moniker superior to hubby Al's, but somehow "Spanky" needs a simpler forename to showcase it fully. Had she been "Sue" or "Sarah" this would be my #1 choice).



    Caress Morell
    Dynasty
    While exposure therapy has desensitised me to the silliness of most Dynasty names over the years, Caress's continues to delight and boggle me.



    Clay Fallmont
    Dynasty
    He sounds like the unwanted Christmas present you must remember to dust off and put on the shelf when your Aunt visits.
    [​IMG]








    Honorable mentions:



    Marion Patrick Mackenzie
    Knots Landing
    I don't know why a man named "Marion" appeals to the giggly inner child so, but there you have it.



    Zsa Zsa Gabor
    Knots Landing

    Just about everyone in Flamingo Road had an outlandish name, other than those already mentioned, what about Eudora Flowers Weldon?

    However, my top 5 are:

    1. Lute-Mae Sanders - FLAMINGO ROAD
    2. Jacqueline Perault - FALCON CREST
    3. Lance Cumson - FALCON CREST
    4. Lane Balou - FLAMINGO ROAD
    5. Fenton Washburn - DALLAS

    Should I vote for my favorite unusual names (that I actually like) or the names I find funny sounding or the names I just find absurd?

    1: Dominique Deveraux - sometimes this name oozes pure glamour. Sometimes it sounds like the name of a contestant on Drag Race.

    2: Racine - so fabulous she doesn't need a surname, just like Cher.

    3: Tyger Hayes - when your name is plain old Patricia, who can blame you for choosing an exotic pseudonym

    4: Eudora Flowers Weldon - it's a competitive field among the residents of Flamingo Road for most outlandish name but I think Eudora has it in the bag.

    5: Caress Morell - on the face of it, Caress sounds like the brand name for toilet tissue or hand soap. But attached to the vampish Kate O'Mara, the name conjures up images of gold lamé and hairspray.

    Dynasty's most underrated character, with the most fabulous name.

    2 upload_2017-9-15_19-23-42.png

    3 upload_2017-9-15_19-24-24.png
    Probably the cheesiest, soapiest, spread-your-legs name I've ever seen.

    4 upload_2017-9-15_19-35-58.png
    Because it's such a bitchy name.

    5 upload_2017-9-15_19-36-43.png
    This name screams "Texas" and "Money".

    And her predecessor was called Hunter. Hunter, Lynch -- both quite aggressive names. I'd never thought of it like that before.

    Of course, the ultimate soap Lynch, in the UK at least, would be Bet Lynch.

    That would be a very soaptastic name too! Hunter Lynch or Lynch Hunter.

    Come to think of it, "Diana" is the goddess of the hunt in Roman mythology so maybe Diana Hunter is even better than Pamela Lynch. Oh well.

    Of course the ultimate soap Diana Hunter (or Diane), at least in the UK, would be Miss Diane off of Crossroads.
