A GAME OF THRONES Fan is Naming Streets in Her Town After the Show

Despite being a show about dark magic, dragons, ice zombies, and murdering anyone who stands in your way, people love to name stuff after Game of Thrones, including their children and train stations. And soon some residents of a town in Idaho will get to say their house is located on a street inspired by the series, after one fan was given the opportunity to name them after the show’s characters and families.

In a story we came across at io9, Jennell Hall of B&A Engineers, Inc. was tasked with coming up with street names for a new subdivision going up in the town of Kuna, Idaho. She told BoiseDev.com her supervisor let her “go wild” coming up with names, so she used the opportunity to “sneak in a geeky one here or there,” including some inspired by Firefly. The two that have been accepted so far are Baratheon Avenue (where we imagine all the furious residents will live), and Rickon Street (likely the place for the town’s useless citizens who disappear for years at a time). If you’re wondering how freaking Rickon of all people got a street named after him, apparently it’s a small street and she was holding back the good names for bigger ones.

She has submitted other Westerosi names, some of which have been rejected for sounding too similar to existing streets or surrounding counties, like Stark, Tarth, Drago, Lannister, and Samwell, but others are still in the running, like Tyrion, Arya, Sansa, and Podrick.

Just as long as no one has to live at Joffrey Road. We’d choke everyday seeing that written on our mail. We’d rather live on White Walker Way. With actual White Walkers.
