This is not new: when films or series are a hit on the big or small screen, it is not uncommon for the first names of the actors subsequently know a success phenomenal among future parents. And the series “Game Of Thrones” is no exception to the rule. Especially when it comes to the first names of the star actresses in the Netflix production.

If the names Daenerys and Sansa did not explode in Belgium after the broadcast of the saga, that of another main character enjoyed significant success. It is that ofArya, the youngest daughter of Lord Eddard Stark and Lady Catelyn Tully. Played by British actress Maisie Williams, Arya is undoubtedly one of the favorite people “Game of Thrones” fans. Rather intrepid and a little rebellious, she prefers practicing swordsmanship to learning the good manners of princesses and queens.

In Belgiumthe first name Arya (with y, to be differentiated from Aria because the statistics are not the same) was only given to six people between 2007 and 2011, and seven babies received it in 2012. But from 2013, the year following the release of the series, we find four times more occurrences of the first name Arya in Belgium! Then, its success only grew, in any case until 2017 when Belgian statistics recorded 33 little Aryas, as in 2016. Then the year 2017 corresponded to a rise (46) which would not stop until in 2019 (71). Since then, the attribution of this feminine surname has stabilized, and each year revolves around 70. The peak occurred in 2021, when 73 Aryas were born in Belgium.
