1 – Naming of newborns with the names of the characters dramatically
After the Game of Thrones series became a global phenomenon, new parents began to honor the show and their favorite characters by naming their children with the names of the game of Thrones characters.
In 2014, 1544 children were named Arya in the United States, making it the 216 most popular name. In addition to Arria, 368 babies were named Kalisi, while 60 were named Terion.
Suggest that you avoid naming your baby “Joffrey” 🙂
