That Demon Monkey

Worst name in the series?

177 posts in this topic

I dislike names that are obviously an attempt at being a "clever" re-wording of something descriptive about that particular character.

Hence my award for worse name goes to Damphair. It always breaks the fourth wall for me when his name pops up. I just sit there thinking "Did you really need to call a guy who worships the Drowned God "Damphair"? "

Second place is Lollys. We get it. She is a fatty and fatties eat lollies. It's still lame.

I enjoy the odd Dickon Manwoody and Lolly, but the names in slavers bay drive me nuts.

Dickon Manwoody is an awesome name!

Exactly. He has the best name in the series.

Rhaegar Frey

I get angry about this every time I see the name. Weaselly little Frey's don't deserve a good name like that.

If I have had gotten to Dickon Manwoody yet he would definitely be top 3. You can't keep a straight face and stay immersed in a story reading that shit.

Essos in general just sucks for names. I read them and I just don't care or become engaged. I get it that you need to establish cultural differences and names are a great way to do that but come on! Why not use some solid Russian names like Sergei or something, not name that has 3 Q's and 7 X's with a bunch of random vowels in the middle.

Penny. For some reason it reminds me of the Big Bang Theory.

Also, does R'hllor count?

Yeah, I too am not keen on the majority of the names in Slavor's Bay. They're so confusing, and it takes effort to actually remember them all.

I may dislike Danaerys herself but her name, like all Targ names, are cool. Viserys Targaryen is freaking awesome a name. These two names, Rhaegar Targaryen, Stannis Baratheon, Galbart Glove, Jason Mallister, Garlan Tyrell, Doran Martell, etc etc are so royal and noble sounding and fierce.

Then you get (quoting the great Stannis Bamfatheon here) stuff like Hizdahr the velociraptor, the shovel pail and stuff like that from Essos :D

Aegon Frey is pretty terrible, specially since it's a half-wit
