Character names in Scandal (new ABC show)

The show just premiered three weeks ago and there are some interesting names. [name]Shonda[/name] Rhymes is behind the show, same person behind [name]Grey[/name]'s Anatomy and Private Practice.


[name]Olivia[/name] Pope
[name]Stephen[/name] [name]Finch[/name]
[name]Harrison[/name] [name]Wright[/name]
[name]Abby[/name] Whelan
[name]Quinn[/name] [name]Perkins[/name] (female)
[name]Cyrus[/name] Beene
President of the United States: [name]Fitzgerald[/name] [name]Grant[/name] (two presidential surnames, hmmm)

So many people are going to be biting their nails about the possibility of some of these names shooting up the charts.

From the list I like
[name]Grant[/name] (I know a 3 year old [name]Grant[/name] so it’s endearing and strong sounding to me)
[name]Cyrus[/name] (I had a professor named [name]Cyrus[/name] so the name is extra cool to me!)

Scandal is also the third tv show (that I’ve watched) that has a female character with the name, [name]Quinn[/name].
