Characters names same as in TV Shows?

Hello guys,
I’m working on a Gossip Girl story. I want it to be close to the show with familiar looking characters and stuff. Can my characters have the same name as the ones in the TV show or do I have to change their names?
Also, can I use the term “Gossip Girl” for my story title and in dialogues or is that not allowed?
I wanted to use the quote “Hey upper east siders, gossip girl here, you’re one and only source…”, can I use that one or do I have to change it a bit?
I want to make sure if it’s okay with the copyright and stuff. Everything else is made up by myself.

Hm. Definitely don’t take my word for it, but I’m pretty sure the title ‘Gossip Girl’ would be copyright…but I don’t think the names are.
