Pick your favourite nickname from GRRM’s writing

Recommended Posts

Whether we’re talking about the main storyline, the Dunk & Egg series, or Fire & Blood, there are some really awesome nicknames given to certain characters. My question is which one do you like best?

For me, it always comes back to Aegor “Bittersteel” Rivers.

Damphair of course.

The ironborn have the best nicknames.

Disagree

 

But to be honest, who doesn't read Damphair as damfer?

Erm, everyone? 

 

I like Frog because of the...’poetic/symbolic’ nature of it

Tom Tangletongue and Tom Tanglebeard. Those names are straight out of a Norse Saga.

Elmo, Kermit, and Oscar Tully made me laugh but those are real names.

I love "The Mad Maid" (Lady Mallora Hightower), and also "The Night Wolf" (which was used in reference to Arya in aDwD).  "Wenda the White Fawn" has a lovely cadence to it, and quite frankly, and despite the fact that I revile the character, Zombie Catelyn has acquired several awesome nicknames, including the very best one "Mother Merciless*."  

(*I want to get that tattooed on my wrist in a flowing, pretty Evlish font!)
