  • David is the most used name in the Comic Series. Hilltop's David was the third to be named David. Other commonly used names in both the Comic and TV Series include Beth, Chris, Billy, Eugene, Matthew, Jim, and Eric.
    • Robert Kirkman answered the question whether naming characters the same name, Billy, Chris, Jim, Eugene, David, Eric, and Bruce was an oversight, "It's not oversight at all. It's completely unrealistic for a group of people to meet at random and never encounter the same names."[1]
  • David is never seen in the comics but his characteristics, backstory and fate are revealed in The Walking Dead: Road to Survival.
