Disney Channel’s ‘Boy Meets World’ sequel series will center around a girl named Riley Matthews, according to a new report.

Regardless of whether you’re for or against Disney Channel’s upcoming Boy Meets World sequel seriesGirl Meets World, this news is sure to pique your interest: Gawker reports that Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga’s (Danielle Fishel) daughter, is named Riley! It’s obvious Cory got to name her; if it was up to Topanga, her name would be 10 times crazier. Like, Rainbow Monkey, or something.

According to the site, which received an e-mail about Girl Meets World from Disney, Riley’s “edgy” best friend — aka female Shawn Hunter — will be named Maya.

What do you think of Riley’s name? Do you think a female Cory-Shawn revival is a good idea? And will you still watch, even if Ben and Danielle aren’t on the show? Drop a comment with your thoughts!
