It’s no surprise to us, but people who watch Game of Thrones are also having a lot of sex. And this sometimes results in babies. And many of these babies are being named …Arya!

The Social Security Administration released its annual its annual list of the most popular names on Thursday. And what’s interesting is that certain pop culture names are rising in popularity. These names include Jase and Arya. Are they the ones you would have picked?

For those who aren’t aware… Jase Robertson is a person on the reality show Duck Dynasty. And Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) is a character from HBO’s Game of Thrones.

It is worth noting that the popular series of books, The Mortal Instruments, by Cassandra Clare have been turned into a movie (City of Bones) that is soon to be released, and one of the characters is named Jace Wayland.  He will be played by Jamie Campbell Bower. It’s the same name, but a different spelling. And it stands to reason that this might help cement this name as being increasingly popular.
