List RulesNot unlike the dragons of Essos, the popularity of names from Game of Thrones is sky high! Vote up your faves from the show.

Wondering what the best Game of Thrones names are? Parents are increasingly choosing to give their kids pop culture names. Beyond role-playing or writing fan fiction, the ultimate way to show your devotion to your favorite show is to bestow your child with an awesome fictional name. And why not? It’s a great way to honor your favorite character and avoid saddling your baby with a boring moniker. Of all the shows from which you can cull a great baby name, Game of Thrones has got to be the best. The HBO juggernaut is chock-full of unique names that have a fantastical, melodic sound to them.

You may wonder if it’s practical to give your child a Game of Thrones name like Khaleesi or Sansa. Maybe not, but compared to popular celebrity baby name choices like Reign, North, or Wyatt, it's not a stretch. 

Game of Thrones is likely to remain popular well after the final episode has aired -- which means the number of babies with Game of Thrones names like Arya and Doran is only going to go up, filling future classrooms and playgrounds with the most awesome names around. Can't you hear it now? "Daenerrrrrryssss! Time for supper!" or "Sandor! Stop throwing sand in your sister's face!"

Are you trendy enough name your kid after this show? Or after any television show? Vote for your favorite names from Game of Thrones!
