Happy 12/21/21! If you’re reading this, that means the Internet still works! Since today is supposed to be the last day of the world, we’re covering zombie themed baby names.

Kids are usually the unsung stars of network television. Most have insignificant roles in family sitcoms, but some are a pivotal part of the cast’s dynamic. There are a few shows now, though, that feature kid’s roles that are just as important as their adult co-stars. NBC’s “The New Normal” features a precocious and interesting Shania, daughter of the surrogate mom-to-be. “Modern Family” has their own similarly styled character with Manny.
With each of these screen-perfect personalities is a name fitting for each character, and none ever seem too out of the blue. In honor of Shania, Manny and Luke, here are our favorite baby names inspired by television!
