For the 319 baby girls born and named Lyanna last year, “Game of Thrones” will never end.

More parents are bestowing “Game of Thrones” character names on their children than ever, according to Social Security Administration data published Friday. Excluding the Jons and Jaimes, more than 4,500 children were given such names in 2018, up from the 3,800-plus in 2017 and the more than 3,200 in 2016.

Note that this is out of the 3.8 million babies, given more than 29,000 distinct names, who were born in the U.S. in 2018.
