TV Olympics: Cutest Couple Name

We’re launching this year’s TV Olympics with the ever-so-cute (you can read that as sarcastic if you lean toward a more jaded view of the world) category of couple names! Often these are used by fans to promote their preferred pairing in shows with love triangles, but occasionally they’ve shown up in actual episodes:

The Big Bang Theory (The Zazzy Substitution):

Penny: Hey look, it’s Shamy.
Amy: Shamy?
Sheldon: Juvenile amalgamation of our names. Sheldon, Amy. Shamy.
Amy: Oh. I don’t like that. Don’t do that.

NCIS (Life Before His Eyes):

Tony: I remember you. Riva. No, Visa. No, no, no. Tiva!
Ziva: Ziva.

You can vote for up to 3 options, and the top 3 answers will receive medals for their shows! Poll closes in one week. Be sure to check out our other polls and results on the main event page!

  1. And again you leave out all the amazing Lost candidates:

    Skate = Sawyer + Kate
    Jate = Jack + Kate
    Jacket = Jack + Juliet
    Suliet = Sawyer + Juliet

    (I didn’t ship any of these, but they were quite funny and well known names!)

    There were some even more hilarious ones, like Dope (Desmond + Penelope) but I don’t know how popular they were…

    1. By “I don’t know how popular they were”, I meant the names, not the ships – of course Desmond/Penny were popular. So were Sun/Jin, but I’m not sure if there was ever consensus on whether to call them Jun or Sin.

    2. I’ve been asking for nominations since July 5th for this event, so there was plenty of opportunity for them to be nominated, but they weren’t. I haven’t seen Lost (yet!) but I’ve seen a good deal about it, and I’ve never heard of these couple names. So since I didn’t know about them, and no Lost fans nominated them, they weren’t on the poll.

      I can add them, though since this is a mini-poll, I’ll like to keep it to two or less per show. Which two should I add?

  2. TIVA
