From movies back in the day to up until a decade ago, leading actors seemed to always have the same on-screen character name. Amitabh Bachchan became synonymous with 'Vijay', Shashi Kapoor popularized the name 'Ravi' and Shah Rukh Khan stole our hearts playing Raj and Rahul. International sit-coms are not that far behind, every movie you watch will have either a James or Noah or Emma or Olivia. However, we're here to talk only about remarkable characters particularly named – Amy

Here are 5 iconic characters named Amy:

Amy Santiago – Brooklyn Nine-Nine

As someone who likes to follow the rule book like a law, Amy Santiago is a badass and yet a quintessential good girl. While the series begins with her wanting to gain respect from her new boss, Captain Holt and denying any attraction towards her colleague Jake, she does end up impressing Holt and marrying Jake. She is socially awkward, caring and hardworking. Catch season 7 of the most loved series Brooklyn Nine-Nine exclusively on Comedy Central every Monday at 10 pm.

Amy Pond – Supernatural


Amy Pond is the classic compassionate young girl who helps Sam Winchester and tends to his wounds, befriending him in the process. She transitions from a soft-hearted girl to a cold-blooded killer in a span of a few years while playing a key role in creating a rift between Sam and Dean. Watch them unravel their secrets and more on AXN.

Amy Fowler – The Big Bang Theory


One of the most eccentric characters on the show, Amy Fowler is our role model for connecting with Sheldon in a way even his mother never could. She had a very different perspective to life and everyday incidents. Being just as awkward as Sheldon in the romance department, she is a breath of fresh air on the show and yet hilariously portrayed by Mayim Bialik. Tune in to Comedy Central at 8pm from Monday to Friday and witness the peculiarity of Amy and Sheldon's relationship.

Amy Greene – F.R.I.EN.D.S


This is one Amy who definitely needs no introduction. Though she played a small part in the series as Rachel's sister, Christina Applegate truly made her character remarkable. From forgetting Emma's name over and over again to thinking she is actually a boy; she truly etched herself in our minds. Tune in to F.R.I.E.N.D.S and watch how Rachel deals with her sisters' problems while juggling her own, on Comedy Central, everyday at 7pm.

Amy Pond – Doctor Who


While she is actually Amelia, she was commonly called Amy and so we ought to include her too. She is one the most distinctive characters from the series having been a part of the Doctor's journey through different times and centuries. She was able to take a stand for herself and yet be a motherly figure to her best friend and daughter (from the future) while they were both still teenagers. Her journey through time (literally) is definitely worth watching. Catch Amy's adventures with the Doctor on Doctor Who on Amazon Prime Video.
