George R. R. Martin is a master when it comes to naming characters. And character names are a great source of inspiration when it comes to pets. Here are some top names from the Song of Ice and Fire series of novels and/or the HBO series Game of Thrones
Arya – for those who are vindictive…?
Brienne of Tarth – Strong, pale, awesome, loyal!
Cersei – although she’s a terrible character, this is actually a cool name, based on the mythical Circe.
Daenerys – although it’s difficult to spell/pronounce, this character is such an icon that people will know the spelling in five years. It also has an easy nickname, Dani.
Khaleesi – we know it’s not a name, it’s a title. But it’s become popular for human babies so why not for pets?
Melisandre – a good one for troublemakers!
Ygritte – strong and gets what she wants!
Jon Snow – Has to be both names!
Drogo or Khal Drogo
…and of course, The Hound!
