Theon? Never come across it before but a friend's sister just named her baby this and I wondered if anyone knew of it?

Oh dear. No.

For real?

It's a Game of Thrones character. He gets his penis chopped off in season 4 or 5.

Yes Game of Thrones...assuming she doesnt watch it as this as he would be an unusual choice of character to name your baby after.

Primaryteach87 Thu 02-Jun-16 17:54:02

Oh dear. Yes really terrible connotations - torture, skinned alive, etc

LadyMonicaBaddingham Thu 02-Jun-16 18:05:21

Oh blimey. Yes, for real. I was wondering if it had an interesting meaning or something because I'd never come across it and I hear a lot of different interesting names through my job. Wasn't expecting that, though... Never seen Game of Thrones.

Game of Thrones character who goes through a very hard time.

Gets nicknamed Reek by his torturer.

tell your sister not to let him play with anyone named Ramsay

It's an ancient Greek name but most people with associate it with Game of Thrones.

Sounds like an elementary particle. If he/she had a sibling you could call them a muon, or Higgs-boson.

Yes perhaps one of the parents is a classical scholar? You have to hope...

Nooooo! Why would anyone name their child after a character in an ONGOING series?!
My DSis is a teacher with a Sansa (GoT character) in her class grin
