Americans Named Their Children After the Show
In 2012, 146 American female children were reportedly named “Khaleesi” after the character Daenerys Targaryen. The funny thing is that Khalessi is actually a title and not a proper name.
Arya Was Among the Most Popular Girl Names
Arya was actually ranked as one of the most popular girl names in the US in 2012. At least it sounds a lot more normal than Khalessi.
Sophie Turner Adopted the Dog Who Played Her Dire Wolf
Actress Sophie Turner was so smitten by the dog who played Sansa’s direwolf “Lady,” that she adopted the animal. Turner’s mom convinced the show’s producers to allow the family to adopt the dog, who’s real name is Zunni, after the animal’s character died on the show and they were looking to find a home for her.

MySpace was, at one time, the most popular social network on the internet. Users loved designing new layouts for their profile, meticulously choosing their “top 8,” and sometimes using pre-designed layouts that fit their personalities.
