The best explanations…

The best explanation I’ve heard so far for why someone would name a televison show and a movie with such a terrible title as, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”:

They say that Joss Whedon created the entire concept of Buffy the vampire slayer when he said, “hey, what if the pretty blonde cheerleader in horror movies actually fought back at the monsters trying to kill her” and the rest is history….the name Buffy was just perfect for this concept.
