As we’ve shared before, it is a fact that fans of the hit HBO show Game of Thrones have begun naming their children after characters such as Khaleesi, Arya, Theon, Kit, Roslin, Sansa, Tyrion, Shae, Daenerys and Renly.
Names.org came up with an interactive graphic with 13 Baby Names Inspired by Game of Thrones. You can see the number of babies named after each character by year. As the series gained in popularity, the baby naming increased as well.
Just to show you how life can sometimes imitate art, in 2010, the Social Security Administration reports that zero babies were named Khaleesi compared to 370 baby girls with that name in 2013.
Similarly, in 2010, there were 273 babies named Arya, compared to 1890 babies named in 2016.
