Don’t make stupid names and you won’t be a target.

GoT or GoT inspired names aren't so bad. The worst, most immersion breaking names are people that name their characters after their classes abilities. like Portsforu, Stabbzin, Nukesem etc etc etc. The sheer lack of creativity disgusts me.
so you're saying "Irontoe" wouldn't be an acceptable name for someone that makes chainmail boots? [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

Tradeskills aren't a class ability (except Alchemy and Poisonmaking, and yes I'd argue "IMakePots" is a terrible name).

I wouldnt see anything wrong with Irontoe... great surname for a Blacksmith (especially a Dorf one).

Also would suit a monk, can't enter a bar in a KungFu movie without getting in a fight with the local 'bad guy gang', Ironshin, Swiftarm, Tigerclaw, Stonefist.... and so on.

Ah, the good old days of playing in a cybercafe and setting your friends surname as soon as they had to afk a minute.

Once you could just change them yourself every 7 days or whatever (PoP era?) I used to troll my friends doing exactly that, then wait and see how long it took them to notice.

Why specifically target GoT names? There's plenty of other fantasy type naming going on already. It's a slippery slope that leads to us all being forced to get names from the random name generator.

On very early Rallos Zek there was a druid named Azure Sleeves.. I thought that name was the funniest thing Ive ever seen, cus it was like, right when everyone first found out about that amazing high AC item.

I thought it was funny he was like "ill roleplay, and name myself after the shining blue sky that blankets the karanas, Azure"

then by the time he was 20 he was like.. "lol ima make my surname Sleeves."

EQ was the best game, but there was never any roleplay in it that lasted longer than a few levels.

Altho some freak half elf did try to have emote sex with me once at the bottom of guk back in 2000.

Halfelf Bard not on your list, deliberate omission? (sorry I'm so late to the party)
