Baby name inspiration from the powerful bikers and their enemies

Sons of Anarchy premiered on FX in 2008 and is the network's highest-rated series ever. SOA is an outlaw motorcycle club with charters all over the world. The hit TV show focuses on the founding chapter, Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club, Redwood Original, aka SAMCRO or Sam Crow.

Sons of Anarchy kicks off its seventh (and final) season in September 2014. In SOA's honor, we've compiled a baby name list that pays tribute to the series colorful characters. To help us keep them all straight, we've notated main characters (M), supporting characters (S) and antagonists (A).
