BBC reports that the UK, henceforth known as the United Kingdom of Warrior Goddesses, continues to name her babies after Game of Thrones characters in record numbers: in 2017, precisely 343 babies were named Arya, and 76 were named Khaleesi. Which means that the only possible way to determine your precious newborn’s destiny is to present them with a knife and an open flame and let him or her choose! (I’m obviously kidding, do not do this.) (But I feel like I actually need to add that disclaimer.)


But how can we really know whom to align our babies with before the series finale? HBO is a cruel and unpredictable mistress.

The BBC also reports an uptick in Leia’s (149) following Carrie Fisher’s death. Leia is eternal.
