List Rules Minor characters from the world of GoT and ASOIAF. So don't add Littlefinger, even though it's a very funny name.

How many characters are in George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire book series? Who knows. maybe millions. What we do know, is that a whole bunch of them are very minor players, who have really awesome character names, nicknames, and monikers. Some of these hilariously named characters also have small roles on HBO's Game of Thrones, so an even wider group of fans has been blessed with the opportunity to meet delightful characters like Dolorous Edd.

These aren't the Lannisters we're talking about - these are the lesser known characters who you only remember because their name is something crazy like Clubfoot Karl, or Swampy Meg. (Poor Swampy Meg.) The world of Westeros and Essos is large and complex, and the minor Game of Thrones characters on this list come from all parts of the realm, beyond the Wall, and even across the Narrow Sea.

No matter how these characters earned their unique, odd names, you surely won't forget them anytime soon, even if you can't remember whether they were a hedge knight or a smuggler. Martin has proved throughout ASOIAF that he is great and coming up with character names and it only makes the GoT universe more fun.

Vore up the strangest and funniest names of minor Game of Thrones characters below, and thank the old gods and the new that your parents didn't name you Whoresbane.
