Yes you're right - Andrew and Andy, father and son. Father hung around longer.

 

Re Scott

Offhand can't recall a Scott on GL or OLTL, at least as a major character. 

 

On Y&R Jonas gave amnesiac Leslie the name Priscilla, always referred to as Pris. I wonder if it was explained at the time why he chose that name.

BTW Was Jonas ever given a surname?

 

Thank you for clarifying about the Marriotts. There was a Scott Banning on DAYS, followed years later by his namesake (SORASED) adoptive grandson. The latter was played by Rick Hearst in his first soap gig.

Ugh, David Chow. I still can’t get over that name.

 

I guess we should be glad MAB (or whoever) later retconned David's backstory and explained how it was just an alias.

Also Nathan Curtis DAYS, Neil's father (although it was later revealed that was not Neil's real name) Seems his father also agreed to change his surname.

Nate Axelrod EON

Nathan Walsh in the early days of SFT

AMC had a second Amy. I remember because I was a huge Cliff/Nina fan and Cliff was involved with a fellow doc named Amy in 1986 who ran in front of a car when Cliff admitted that he still was in love with Nina and she ended up dying.

 

Oh, and to add on to the "Lisa" list,  there was crazy-assed Lisa Niles on GH.

Thanks! I looked her up - Dr. Amy Stone, who was played by Catherine Ann Christiansen.

Amy Stone, that was it!

And if I recall, when she did her little dart into the street, it was around the time Stevie Wonder was on the show, singing. Amazing how I remember this stuff.

The 50's soap A Time To Live has a character named Greta Powers!

 

Made me think of characters over the years with the same name.

Ben Jerrod had John Abbott as did Y&R

Laura Spencer (Horton) on DOOL and Laura Webber(Spencer) on GH

Both AW and LOL had a character named John Randolph at the same time.

Can anyone add to this list?
