More and more people in England are naming their kids after characters from “Game of Thrones.”

A new report from the BBC says 343 newborn girls were named Arya in 2017, a 14-percent jump from 2016. 73 babies were named Khaleesi, and 11 named Tyrion. “Star Wars” characters were also a popular pick last year, with 149 baby girls named after Princess Leia.

Seventy boys were named Kylo, and 21 named Rey. Seven girls born in England last year were also named after Disney’s newest princess, Moana. Three girls were dubbed, but hopefully don’t have her traits, Harley Quinn.
