14 Game Of Thrones-inspired baby names (+ 7 to avoid)

Kinderling News & Features

Got a little prince or princess on the way but know nothing when it comes to names? Game Of Thrones – the most popular TV show in the world right now - might just have the answers you crave. Sure it's full of adult themes, but it’s also boasts some pretty imaginative inspiration for baby names too.  

Looking past the obvious ones like Jon, Jaime and Grey Worm (LOL, just kidding), there’s a treasure trove of gold to be found in the wild, wonderful world of Westeros. Play the Game Of Names if you dare…

GIRLS

Arya
The coolest name in the kingdom. Just don’t get on her naughty list.

Brienne
Strong, loyal, honourable. Pretty much guarantees you’ll have a goody-two-shoes!
 

Ellaria
A sweet and exotic name, but beware the fangs when angry.
 

Khaleesi
Like the Mother Of Dragons, your little queen was born to rule (your life). May burn things when she doesn’t get her way. 
 

Lyanna
Got a tiny boss on your hands? This name’s perfect. 

Margaery
Basically, a posher version of Margaret. Very classy.
 

Sansa
A beautiful moniker for your fair lady. We love it. 

BOYS 

Bran
The real outdoors type, but lose him – he might get off his tree. 

Eddard
A stark reminder of noble Ned. We miss you, mate. 

Jorah
Guaranteed to get on well with girls – as friends, of course.
 

Loras
A lyrical name worthy of your little knight in shining armour.
 

Oberyn
This boy likes to party!

Rickon
A damn suave name, and so much better than Dickon.

Tommen
A classier version of Tom. Nickname would still be Tommo though.

Names to avoid

Cersei
Pretty name, vile queen. On the plus side, least you know she’ll get on with her brother.

Euron
Because it sounds like urine. Der.

Hodor
Destined to be helpful, but awfully repetitive. RIP Hodor.

Joffrey
You’ve seen the show, right?

Little Finger
Obvious, isn’t it?

The Hound
Because your dog will get confused.

Walder
Where’s Walder? Not on your list, that’s where! Not after what he did at the Red Wedding.
