It’s perfectly okay if your progeny is a little bit pampered and spoilt; after all, he is the torchbearer of your lineage and will make you proud someday. Joff may have an English or German origin and can be used as a transcription for Geoffrey or Joffrey.


How cool the name is! Doesn’t it rhyme with Thor? Well, Jorah is known for his words of wisdom and the refusing to fall characteristic. The name may have multiple origins like German, Spanish or Scandinavian. It originally means God is exalted.


Though the name is already popular in different parts of the world and used as a short variant of many names; it started buzzing after the shy, well-behaved and insightful character of Samwell touched millions of hearts of GoT diehards. The name means the name of God.


Playful, a bit temperamental and stubborn – boys will be boys. Rickon is a strong character that displays courage and will power beyond his age. Rick can be an abbreviation of Richard which means a strong ruler.


How about a cute boy robbing the hearts? A prince as fast and as powerful as The Young Wolf can conquer the world with his calibre. Rob or Robby are cool nicknames for your worthy progeny.


A beautiful princess who brings her glorious fate with her birth. When beauty accompanies brains and then courage then you have to say ‘You, Go Girl’. Margaery is not just a queen but elegantly beautiful and a badass personality as well who knows how to deal with things.

The fusion of a simple mind, loyal personality and a big robust physique is just deadly. Hodo is an unusual nickname inspired by the lovely character of Hodor from GoT. How could you resist loving a person who has immense strength but acts childish?


Who says warriors can’t be funny? I personally find a warrior with a great pessimistic sense of humor astounding. The name is often used for boys and girls both and its roots can be found in Old English.


Though the character is not hugely celebrated; Euron is a cool name and Euro perfectly justifies its grace as a short and stylish abbreviation. And, when you say your baby is priceless, the name itself establishes its significance as a popular currency.


I just can’t imagine anyone of equal strength, built or charm like Khal Drogo. A leader and a tribe warrior with that personality can make anyone awestruck.


I may not think twice while naming a baby girl as Ella if I get a chance. The name itself has a charm, a story and significance. It rhymes with names like Bella and Stella. Ellaria, who is the inspiration behind this nickname, is an eye-catching woman with a sensuous flair.


While writing about the name, I went to the divine era of Hindu mythology for a couple of moments. The brave, optimistic and protective GoT character shows a strong personality. Meera is a popular Indian name that dates back to history. Meera was the most ardent worshipper and admirer of Lord Krishna and a mystical poetess. The name means a poetess, an ocean or a boundary.
