The NAME GAME!

Inside Soap - - THE BIG INTERVIEW -

When it comes to hav­ing fan­tas­tic char­ac­ter names, the Din­gles are streets ahead of the rest of soa­p­land. But did you know that there are two spe­cific branches to their un­usual monikers? One side of the fam­ily has bib­li­cal names – started by the found­ing fa­ther of the

Din­gles, Abra­ham.

Since then, we’ve had the likes of

Zachariah (Zak), who had broth­ers named Shadrach,

Caleb, Ezra and

Al­bert, and we are fa­mil­iar with Chastity,

Char­ity, Cain and Sa­muel to name but a few. And the tra­di­tion has con­tin­ued as Char­ity went on to call her sons Noah and Moses, and Cain and Moira chris­tened their son Isaac. Mean­while, over on the more glam­orous side of the fam­ily, there are some glitzy Din­gles with Hol­ly­wood names. We know and love Mar­lon, who is named after the God­fa­ther star Mar­lon Brando, and we’ve even met an Elvis and Mar­i­lyn Din­gle! We’re keep­ing our fingers crossed that Angelina, Har­ri­son and Idris Din­gle will be hit­ting our screens in the fu­ture…

Zak is the longest­serv­ing Din­gle

Mar­i­lyn Din­gle circa 1996
