Name of Thrones – Baby Names Inspired by Game of Thrones

Despite the Season Six Finale of Game of Thrones (GoT) airing last Monday night, parents are using the popular drama series as inspiration to name their baby. The trend is set to rise after a record viewing of the finale, with the show being the number one program last Monday night on Foxtel.

Unlike many TV series where the audience drops off after a few seasons, GoT has a growing audience in Australia and season six recorded a 600 per cent rise in views than season one.

The growing popularity of the show has influenced parents when naming their baby.

In the US, there were 1135 children named Arya last year, 241 named Khaleesi, 67 called Daenerys, 59 Snows, 15 Theons, eight Briennes, and five named Robb, influenced by Robb Stark.

Last year in Britain, 244 Aryas, 53, Khaleesis and a handful of baby Daenerys, Sansas, Theons and Tyrions were introduced to the world.

In an age where parents are wanting unique names for their babies, GoT may just offer the right inspiration for that distinctive name parents are looking for.

Here is a list of 83 baby names for parents-to-be, who love GoT. The names include the good, bad and shady characters.
