“Arya” the Fastest Rising Name for Girls This Year


I swear I was having this exact conversation during Game of Thrones last week.

“We should name one of our kids Tyrion. That’s a badass name”

“No, but I’d maybe name a girl Arya.”

Turns out that sentiment is replicating itself all over the country, and a whole bunch of people are now actually naming their little girls Arya. It’s the name rising in popularity the fastest for girls, jumping from #413 to #298 in one year alone.

Will our kids be growing up running around with a bunch of Robbs, Cerseis, Tywins, Theons and Aryas someday? Perhaps, and that would be freaking awesome.
