The final season of Game of Thrones might be causing a lot of mixed feelings amongst the show’s rabid fanbase, but if the rising number of “Thrones”-inspired baby names is any indication, it’s clearly not putting much of a damper on people’s love for the series as a whole!

According to data from the Social Security Administration, more than 4,500 children across America were given such names in 2018, and that’s excluding any kids named Jaimie or Jon! That’s up from the roughly 3,800+ babies in 2017 and 3,200 in 2016.

It should be noted that that number is out of 3.8 million babies born in 2018, who were given over 29,000 distinct names. It should also be noted that the Social Security Administration only lists data on names given to five or more babies within a year, so it’s entirely possible that there are babies out there with names of other, lesser-known characters.

Here’s the full count of 2018 babies with “Game of Thrones” character names:

  • Arya: 2,594 (it should be noted that “Arya” is actually a traditional name in some countries)
  • Khaleesi: 560
  • Yara: 434
  • Lyanna: 319
  • Daenerys: 163
  • Shae: 125
  • Renly: 102
