The Game of Thrones-inspired baby names are becoming increasingly popular.

According to newly released data from the Social Security Administration, more than 4,500 children born in 2018 share the same name as characters from the hit HBO series; this figure doesn’t include more traditional names like Jon and Jaime. NBC News’ Joe Murphy points out that this data is based on the 29,000 distinct names given to U.S. newborns last year, and does not include names given to less than five babies.
Among the most popular girl names were Khalessi, Yara, Lyanna, and Brienne, while boy names like Tyrion, Jorah, Ramsay made good showings. The most common GoT name of all, however, was Arya, which was identified as the 119th most popular female name of 2018 in fact—a 16-point increase from 2017. It’s also important to note that Arya is an international name that translates to “noble one” or “noble goddess,” and had appeared in the data well before HBO series’ premiere. This is also the case for Tyrion and Jorah.
You can check out the all of the GoT names that appeared in the 2018 data below. Other pop culture-related names that surged last year were Thanos (Avengers) and Kylo (Star Wars).

American superstar rapper, Nicki Minaj, shares the same sentiments as myriads of Wizkid fans and well-wishers worldwide, in that she concurs to the argument the trendsetting crossover record-breaking single from Wizkid’s 2020 released “Made In Lagos” album, Essence should be in the conversation for the coveted “Record of the Year” plaque at this year’s Grammy Awards.

Although “Essence” did not receive the much desired nomination in the category for “Record of the Year” at the 2022 Grammy Awards, it did get a nod for Best Global Music Performance, the first of its kind.

Irrespective of the snub, Nicki whilie on Joe Budden TV (YouTube) as a guest on the special episode tagged A Conversation With Nicki Minaj & Joe Budden agreed with the host (Joe Budden) when he said “We need people on the Grammy board that know that “Essence” was song of the year” with an exclamatory “Right! Right!” response. She even proffered, “We should have our own Grammy Board“, in support of many and the popular believe that Black Americans or black artistes in general are always stereotyped to a particular category at the award show, if indeed they made it to the top categories, they barely win; Nicki Minaj does not have a Grammy Award herself and that is still a shock to many, especially when considering her refined catalogue of music.
