Parents are Naming Babies After "Game of Thrones" Characters

Posted: May 12th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Parents are Naming Babies After "Game of Thrones" CharactersSubmit Comment
The Social Security Administration released the top one thousand most popular names of children born in 2013. "Sophia" was the top name given to 21,075 female babies. But looking through the list, it's clear that Hollywood once again influenced lots of parents' decisions.

Names like "Bella" used to dominate thanks to the "Twilight" franchise. But now, names like "Khaleesi" are making an appearance in the list.

The name is from the "Game of Thrones" TV series and was given to 241 babies. The number keeps rising every year, but was at zero before the show came to television. It's become so popular that it's now listed higher than such traditional names as "Betsy," "Sally" and "Stacy."

The character's real name, "Daenerys," also made the list, with 21 babies taking that name.

And even though "Arya," another character on the series, was a name that appeared on the list before "Game of Thrones," thanks to the show there are now 1,135 babies named that. "Arya" actually beat such names as "Amanda," "Phoebe" and "Helen."

Meanwhile, "Bella" is still doing well with 4,311 babies. And "Katniss," from "The Hunger Games," made an appearance with 12 babies.

Well, this is still old news.

Also why name your child after a character whose future is still unknown. For all we know Dany might lose her mind and start killing babies. Then great, you named your child after a fictious baby killer.

Who would name their kids these names?! Holy sh*t. Everyone wants their kids name to standout...but is it worth the back lash the kids will get through school?! Seriously I'm flashing back to grade school right now and how brutal kids were to other people I knew and they had normal names! Try naming your kid Katniss and Daenerys and see where that goes. "Katpiss". "Daen*ggers". Seriously no one thinks ahead it's f*cking hilarious at this point!

So, if there's a kid whose name is joffrey, that means he's his mother and his uncle's child. *shudder* . That most likely will happen in deep south.

I'm just glad white people haven't become so stupid to name their kids LaQuanda, Latisha, Jamal and Demetrius.

@Electro: really? In Detroit white people use black names for their kids?

They're naming after Games of Thrones characters so that when they become senile, they can remember the names in their "golden years" .... bunch of bloody idiots.

I hope their kids become violent and brutally murder them in their sleep.
Max Rockatansky Junior writes:

Anyone who names their f*cking sploog Daenerys needs to be castrated and never have kids in the first place.

Or a lobotomy.

Oh wow. That wasn't a joke.
And I know a girl named Sonquista. Which is one step away from being the name of an orange soda. It's pronounced like said beverage, too.

Ive been all o er the US to alot of the major cities and I swear there is no place more hateful, openly racist, filth ridden, corrupt, and just rude....than Detroit and its residents. Theres so much crazy f*cked up sh*t here its unreal.
