Soapdom's Soap Opera Baby Names

Thorsten Kaye (Zach & baby Spike, AMC)Don't you just love the names of soap opera characters? From Nash, Ridge, Tad and Coop to Bianca, Skye, Harley and Tabitha, soap opera writers have a field day when it comes to creating the monikers of their heros and heroines.

In encountering many a soap fan over the years, we've heard hundreds of stories about how favorite soaps and characters helped expectant mothers through their pregnancies, and even through some rather difficult deliveries.  "I was in labor 48 hours! What got me through was watching General Hospital every day. I named my son Jason!"

Some fans just  can't get enough of their favorite characters.  "My mom just loved to watch Erica Kane on All My Children. When I was born, she named me Erica. Of course, Erica's now my favorite character, too!"

Antonio Sabato, Jr.What do the actors think of their character names?  Michael E. Knight (Tad, AMC) has been known to joke about his character name.  "Tad sounds like a snack cracker," he says. "I'll have a bowl of tads and a glass of milk, please!"   The Bold and the Beautiful's Antonio Sabato, Jr. (ex Dante) feels the name suited his character. "Dante is very much an Italian name. It’s strong and short enough that you’ll remember very quickly. I like it."  See more soap opera actor comments on their character names here .

At Soapdom we give you the character name, its origin and meaning, and list some of the soap character's actual traits.  We even compare character traits of characters with the same name who appear on different soaps. Like Bo Brady on DOOL, and Bo Buchanan on OLTL!
