Orange Is the New Black is not only the hottest show, but it is also full of unique names. If you binge-watched the Netflix show during your pregnancy, it is only fitting that you pick one of these great names from Orange Is the New Black.
In you case you missed it, orange is totally the new black and Piper is the new Emma. The hilarious drama/comedy (let’s just call it a dramedy) Orange Is the New Black not only has killer storylines, but killer character names as well.
The name Piper is of English origins and very appropriately means, “piper.”
We also love the name of Alex, played by actress Laura Prepon. In fact, tomboy baby names are a huge trend right now so we predict this name will also be climbing in popularity. For example, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher named their daughter Wyatt and Blake Lively has a baby girl named James.
Alex is a name that has both Greek and English origins and means, “defender of mankind.”
There are some names we wouldn’t recommend, such as the character Poussey played by Samira Wiley (no explanation needed here), or “Crazy Eyes,” however, there are many more unique names to consider. Here are some of our favorite Orange Is the New Black names.

The names of different shades of black are also great names, perfect for boys or girls.
