The Real GOT Names You Should be Looking At

Post by Mom. The Pie is a kiddo, so of course has never viewed the show.

 As a namer I've seen plenty of Game of Thrones inspired baby name lists. Collections of names from the characters on the show. As a viewer who sometimes feels like I shouldn't be, I often wonder, would you really name your baby in honor of the crude, inappropriate, immoral and sometimes just flat out disgusting show?
 I realize it is happening. Khaleesi continues to be a name on the rise, and both Arya and Aria have gone from a spot in the 900's to 119 and 19 respectively.  Even Winter has made leaps on the popularity charts. No doubt due to the ominous threat, "winter is coming."
 I've found my GOT names in another spot~ the credits. For years, I've watched the opening of the show and as a namer, of course,  I closely eye the names of actors, directors, producers and composers looking for names that are new to me and inspiring. Here is a collection of names from Game of Thrones worthy of use.
 As I dug in, reviewing the opening and closing of the show as well as searching through lists on  HBO.com and Imdb I realized that there were countless inspiring names of people who worked on the show.  These are some of the names from GOT you should really be looking at. I've tried to order them by season they first appear...

Name Watch 2020: Names for Boys that End with -s

Boy's names that end in the letter "s" are everywhere!  At least it seems that way. Of course with James being perhaps the most popular boy's name of all time, you'd think that -s enders would be all over the charts. Not exactly. There's Lucas of course, coming in at #8 in 2018, but then you have to go all the way to #49 and classic Thomas before you see another boy's name that ends in -s.  So why then, does it feel like we are seeing them everywhere? We are seeing these -s ending names  trend into a few categories. Nature Names An earthy vibe is something we've long seen in naming, yet don't tend to find in the Top 100. Last year we predicted that we'd see some on the rise, yet these boho names still don't top the charts. Perhaps these -s ending nature names will move on up this year.

Names YOU Love - Fan Favorites of 2021

 We thought it would be cool to share with you YOUR favorite names of 2021. We did a similar post in 2019 and it is rewarding to reflect on the changing trends and look at the new data and analytics. In this collection we will share with you the videos, pins, tweets and posts that YOU'VE enjoyed the most this year. We can't seem to agree on which social platform is our favorite. We started out with the intention of building a Youtube channel. After watching and laughing hysterically as gals shared, "names I love but..." we thought,  we could DO this .  But we didn't want to be in our videos. Now that we've been at it for a while, we realize that was likely a big mistake, and maybe someday we face reveal and start talking names....maybe. But we are okay with the fun we are having now as totally self-proclaimed "Baby Name Specialists."  We love creating simple tweets and name art to post on instagram. The occasional blog idea comes to one of us, but ev
