Naming Your Child After a Fictional Character refers to a Wojak Comics format in which two parent-child conversations about the child's name are compared against each other. The format gained popularity on Facebook and Reddit in late March 2021 as an exploitable format.
On March 26th, 2021, the Facebook page Strengthwave posted a Wojak comic in which a child named after a Game of Thrones character, Khaleesi, complained about her name to her parent, while a child named after the Christian saint Albertus Magnus expressed his love for his parent. The post (shown below) received over 2,500 reactions and 1,900 shares in one week.
On March 26th, the meme was shared by Facebook page Katoliko Memes PH 2, gaining over 1,000 reactions, and Twitter user @ThcottyNodak, gaining over 240 retweets and 2,000 likes in one week. On March 27th, Redditor JorisJobana then reposted the meme to /r/HistoryMemes where it gained over 22,200 upvotes in one week.
On the same day, the Facebook page Orthodox Meme Squad posted the first derivative of the meme based on the image, altering the name of the mentioned saint (shown below, left). The post received over 780 reactions and 50 shares in one week. On March 27th, the Facebook page CathJuche: the party is back posted another meme based on the format, which received over 500 reactions and nearly 100 shares (shown below, right).
