The Walking Dead inspired baby names


There aren’t many babies in the zombie apocalypse and children don’t do very well either, but there are some interesting names from The Walking Dead that fans can use for their own little asskickers.

Maggie is pregnant and will need a name for the baby soon. Aaron suggested Aaron for a boy, alternately spelled Erin, for a girl. Carl rattled off many tribute names for Lori’s baby before finally choosing a tribute to his 3rd grade teacher, Mrs. Mueller, and gave baby Judith her name.

More the walking dead: Sorry, Aaron, Sophia is most popular baby name!

Often when shows, books, and movies are popular, babies are named after beloved main characters. I wonder how many class rosters have the name Katniss, Peeta, or Hermione on them. The Stir published 19 The Walking Dead inspired names and that got me thinking of more.

There are quite a few that are pretty common names like Rick and Lori or Andrea, Bob, and Beth. But there are many that are more unusual. Some are actor names, some are character names and some are inspired by other The Walking Dead things.
