Unless you've been living under a rock, you're aware that a little show named Game of Thrones is seriously popular. And it has serious -- no, serious -- fans. How serious are Game of Thrones fans? So serious that they're naming their children after characters on the show. Since the program's premiere, there have been 30 babies named Khaleesi, and the name Arya has doubled in popularity.
No biggie, right? People have been naming their children after books, shows, and movies for decades (Harry Potter; Twilight; Hunger Games, anyone?). Well, see, the thing is, with GOT names, some of the monikers, like Khaleesi, are completely made up. As in, they were never names; never words; never anything before George R.R. Martin, author of the series, created them in his head.
Anyone else think it's an eensy bit odd to give a child a completely, totally made up name?
