Building Unique Game of Thrones Dog Names

While you can simply use the same names presented above, several dog owners have chosen to build their own names. Here are several methods to build your unique dog name:

  • Use a description, followed by favorite location: In this idea, you want to take a behavior or feature of your canine, then figure out their favorite location. From there, you can give them a description and an "illegitimate child" name. For example, if your dog loves to dig and explore the mountains, you could name them "Explorer Stone" (Stone is the last name of an illegitimate child from the Vale). Another example could be "Swimming River" (River is the last name of an illegitimate child from the Riverlands).
  • Take part of a character nickname: In this example, you take part of a character name and modify it to suit the dog. For example, a dog that chases birds could be the "High Sparrow Chaser." Another example could be, "The Mountain Hound". You could even simply add "Direwolf" to the end or beginning of their name. (Just make sure your vet knows they aren't actually a wolf...as many vets will not treat wild animals)
  • Use a pun: This is one of the most dangerous techniques, because puns can wear out very quickly. One of the best ways to use a pun name is to take an existing name and modify several characters. For example, Khal Drogo could become Khal Dog-o. Another example could be Brienne of Tarth becoming Brienne of Bark-th.

UPDATED WITH PICS & VIDEO!! Comic-Con: Game of Thrones announces a Season 3 premiere date and tons of cast, including Dame Diana Rigg!

Published at: July 13, 2012, 6:09 p.m. CST by quint

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here just as the big Game of Thrones panel comes to an end. They didn’t show any footage as they just began shooting Season 3. But here’s the big news:

-Season 3 premieres on HBO March 31st, 2013!

And some Season 3 casting:

-Dame Diana Rigg (The Avengers, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service) as Olenna Tyrell, the Queen of Thorns

-Mackenzie Crook from The Office and Pirates films will play a wilding called Orell

-Clive Russell will be playing Bryndon “Blackfish” Tully.

-Young Nathalie Emannuel will play Missandei, a slave.

-Tobias Menzies plays Catelyn’s brother Edmure Tully

-Paul Kaye plays Thoros of Myr

-Thomas Brodie-Sangster plays Jojen Reed… You’ll recognize him from the Narnia films.

-Ellie Kendrick plays Jojen’s sister, Meera.

-Kerry Ingram plays Stannis Baratheon’s child, Shireen.

-Tara Fitzgerald plays Shireen’s mother, Selyse.

-Richard Dormer is Beric Dondarrion

-Kristofer Hivju is Tormund Giantsbane, chief lieutenant of the King Beyond the Wall.

-Philip McGinley plays Anguy

HBO also released this casting announcement video right after the panel ended, so here's a second look at all the new cast in motion.

The panel was moderated by George RR Martin and boy, that guy is a horn dog! I mean, I probably should have known that from the scenarios and characters he came up with, but he would not stop talking about boobies and kept grilling the cast (especially Alfie Allen) about their sex scenes.

In other words he’s the perfect Comic-Con moderator.

It was an odd panel in that it didn’t feel like they were ready to really promote Season 3, so it was just some of the cast hanging out and chatting with fans.

On the panel were Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Emelia Clarke (Khaleesi), Michelle Fairley (Catelyn Stark), Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy), Richard Madden (Robb Stark) and Rose Leslie (Ygritte).

-In Season 2, heads of show David Benioff and Dan Minahan gave Alfie a fake script that had him die at the end of the season, expecting him to freak out. He actually liked it and took it in stride. So, he got a call… “Hey, so did you see the script?” “Yeah, it’s good. It’s a great way to go out.” “We had another thought. How would you feel about being a zombie?” “Well, I’d be down.” “A naked zombie with no lines…” “Okay, you’re having me on!”

-Rose Leslie pondered what wildling Ygritte would be like on Downton Abby (she plays Gwen Dawson on that show). She didn’t think it’d be very pretty, but very entertaining.

-In the dream sequence, the baby that was supposed to be Drogo’s and Daenerys Targaryen’s child apparently farted a lot (Comic-Con Exclusive Info!)

-When asked about the costumes, Warner quipped: “I, for one, enjoyed wearing a costume in Season 2.”

-Richard Madden thought back on the different locations he shot in and said that Winterfell was by far his favorite place to shoot. They apparently burned incense while shooting there and he was at his happiest being in Winterfell, much like his character.

-The last bit that jumped out to me as being pretty cool was Martin talking about turtles… He claims the turtle as his own personal sigul because when he was a kid he lived in the projects in New Jersey and they didn’t allow cats and dogs, so he had to get more untraditional pets. He had a ton of dime store turtles that were his friends. He gave them names and came up with backstories, friendships and betrayals and all that was the seeds of what eventually became Game of Thrones.

The audience loved them, it was a pleasure seeing them interact with everybody and hearing the responses as they announced the new cast. As a big fan of the show that hasn’t ever read the books it was fascinating hearing people reacting to characters I will be a huge fan of next year.

Katekyo Hitman Reborn

Your wholesome neighborhood mafia family.

Tsunayoshi "Tsuna" Sawada is a loser. A really big loser. Last in his class, inept at sports, and generally disliked by the populace of his school.

He's also the future boss of the Vongola crime family.

He doesn't believe it at first, but when his 'home tutor', a diminutive hitman named Reborn, visits him and shoots him (apparently) dead, he gains unstoppable determination and becomes able to do a host of amazing feats and command the respect of others. just the sort of thing he needs to turn his life around.

However the life of a mafia boss is fraught with danger, and Tsuna and his new 'family' must become stronger if they are to survive the competition.

A popular Shonen Jump manga series by Akira Amano (known simply as Reborn! in the Viz translation) with an anime adaptation that ran from 2006 to 2010. The latter is available free and legally with English subtitles at Crunchyroll and Hulu, but only in certain areas.

Katekyo Hitman Reborn provides examples of:

Tsuna: (thinking) How come he hasn't been arrested yet?

Reborn: "Apparently, it's now called Hibird."

Tsuna: "Who made up such a name?!"

Gamma: "Don't say stupid things, you bunch of lolicons."

Other members: "Wha?! Like you're not the most suspicious one here!!"

Xanxus: Not possible! This is impossible!

"Why do you think Uni had to do this. You ruined our world. That's why Uni. That's why Uni DIED!! Byakuran! I. I WON'T FORGIVE YOU. " Cue Tsuna curbstomping to the point he kills Byakuran. That's right, present Tsuna Killed Byakuran!

20- Michael: “Do I have a special someone? Uh well, yeah of course. A bunch of ’em. My employees.

Like I was watching Cinemax last weekend. This movie, Portrait of a… Prostitute something. Secrets of a Call… More Secrets of a Call Girl. And the lead character, Shila, is framed for murder. She goes on the run and winds up working at a bordello in Malibu. I don’t, I don’t want to live like that. I like it here. I don’t want to be Shila, I like being Michael Scott.”

39- Michael:“This morning, I found a bloody glove in my desk drawer and Jim Halpert tried to convince me I committed murder. I think he may be the real murderer.” [flips to another paper] “Jim Halpert said there was an abandoned infant in the woman’s room. When I went to save the child, I saw Meredith on the can.” Gah. “This morning, I knocked myself in the head with the phone.”

40- Dwight: “Why tip someone for a job I’m capable of doing myself? I can deliver food. I can drive a taxi. I can, and do, cut my own hair. I did, however, tip my urologist, because… I am unable to pulverize my own kidney stones.”

44- Pam: It’s performance review day, company-wide. Last year, my performance review started with Michael asking me what my hopes and dreams were, and it ended with him telling me he could bench-press 190 pounds. So, I don’t really know what to expect.

45- Dwight: A thirty year mortgage at Michael’s age essentially means that he’s buying a coffin. If I were buying my coffin, I would get one with thicker walls so you couldn’t hear the other dead people.

46- Phyllis Vance:Well, I just think we all deserve to be with someone who wants to be with us.”

47- “Through Concentration, I Can Raise And Lower My Cholesterol At Will.”
