But some bookmakers have decided that these names are a bit too conventional, and have looked to another royal family for inspiration. Sky Bets’ selection of potential baby names includes a fair new nods to the royal families of Westeros, the setting for epic fantasy series Game of Thrones. Among the names in the running is Margaery, the queen played by Natalie Dormer in the popular series. Both Margaery and Natalie are in the running as a name for the royal baby at 50/1, provided Kate gives birth to a girl. Daenerys, as in Mother of Dragons … [Read more...] about Bookies think these Game of Thrones-inspired royal baby names could be in with a shot
