13 John Smith’s from TV Shows Posted by Media Company Name Here
Thing #13: The first John Smith was born in the late 1400s.
The name of a person is traditionally chosen by his or her parents, and people often choose names that have important meanings for them. Some families may pass down traditional names from one generation to another, while others might give children the same given name as their siblings (middle names can be used to distinguish between family members). In Wales, male babies were once customarily named after their father’s eldest brother—and so if a boy had an older sister with the same name he would take on her surname instead. Ancestry has compiled some interesting facts about baby naming customs around the world!
A quick glance at this list will show you that most of these American television shows are not about the Celtic culture, but instead are simply referring to a male name.
The show Friends is referencing John Smith because there were six main characters and they all had one letter for their first names starting with J – Jennifer Aniston, Joey Tribbiani, Janice Hosenstein (the secretary), Rachel Green (another character from Friends), Ross Geller and Chandler Bing. There was also an episode of Monica’s birthday party when her friends got drunk and regretted that none of them have unique last names so they whipped up fake ones such as Johnson or Thompson in honor of themselves! John wasn’t mentioned by any other person on this list though which leads me to believe it isn’t his real name.
In a later episode of Friends, John is the name of another character on the show called “John.” He was one of Rachel’s many boyfriends who she had met in England and dated for three episodes before breaking up with him because he wasn’t what she wanted in her life. You’ll notice that this guy has an L at the end which means it isn’t his real first name either!
In conclusion, there seems to be conflicting evidence about whether or not John Smith really does exist as someone’s last name on TV but I have yet to find any definitive proof that it doesn’t exist anywhere else either so we can only speculate until somebody finds something out definitively. Whenever you watch TV from now on if you see a John Smith (and there are many!) try not to assume that they’re related or even the same person because it may be another coincidence like we saw with Friends.
In Season One of House, Dr. “Christopher” Taub is introduced as one of the main characters and appears in eleven episodes before he’s written off for being too nice of a guy who doesn’t really understand what makes House tick. He does appear again later on in Seasons Two through Four but only sporadically which means his name was never really mentioned after the first season so this could also have been just an L instead!
A final word: don’t confuse these two Johns from TV shows named John by thinking they might be related since their names are so similar.
One is from the Friends show, and was a recurring character during Season One as Joey’s roommate who eventually moves out to live with Chandler in their new apartment on another floor of the building after Monica retires from her waitressing job at Central Perk for good. He appears again later on in Seasons Three through Eight but only sporadically which means his name was never really mentioned after the first season either because he didn’t have any major storylines that required him or they just got sick of having yet another guy named John!
The other John Smith, also from TV shows, is one of the main characters in House where he plays Dr. “Christopher” Taub who doesn’t appear until Season Two of the show. The only John Smith who has made a frequent appearance on TV is from NCIS: Los Angeles where he’s been playing Special Agent “John” Quintero since Season Three of the series in 2012.

John Bradford has only ever had three different actors play him: John Laughlin (1979), Ian McDiarmid (1991) and Ben Daniels (2013).

But if you Google ‘Downton abbey actor’, McDiarmid pops up as a result..which means his character was named after someone who came before him? That seems like an odd choice!
