Default Popular TV Names You Don't Know Any in your Real Life Circles

On more recent shows anyway, Malcolm is a really popular name for TV characters. FOX's titular Malcolm in the Middle, Prodigal Son whose main character is named Malcolm, and Malcolm on The Neighborhood. I don't know any Malcolms who I have come across in my real life though.

The great majority of Barneys I'm aware of are on TV.

A long time ago I knew a dog named Barney. But now that you mention it, I don't recall knowing any human Barneys either.

I've never known any men named Frasier or Niles. And I've never known any women named Daphne, Maris, or Roz either. But my Mom had a female relative named Daphne but she died years before I was born.

I remembered I know a married couple with several children and one of their daughters is named Phoebe. But then I've never known a woman named Ursula (Phoebe's twin sister on Friends).
