What is the name of the Virginian in the TV series 'The Virginian'? According to the Wikipedia nobody knows. I watch it often but miss bits of it due to naps. Today in 'The Stranger' Season 7 , Episode 26, after giving the stranger a job, Virginian asks for the strangers name and then introduces himself. It sounded like a name, but it was so unexpected, I missed what he said. I watched it a second time as it comes with a two hour gap on another station. But I napped at the crucial time.
