If you’re already tiring of the Game of Thrones hysteria dominating your Facebook feeds, spare a thought for the children stuck with names based on the show for life.
According to data from the UK’s Office of National Statistics, Game of Thrones character names are proving a popular choice amongst new parents – figures we’re sure are only growing worldwide.
The Independent reports that Arya is the most popular GoT baby name so far, with 280 babies bearing the name in 2015 alone.
In the same year, there were 68 girls named Khaleesi, 11 Sansas and six Daenerys.
As for the boys? 30 Theons (inspired, no doubt, by Theon Greyjoy) at last count.
