** Jon Snow shares his first name with Jon Arryn, Great and Small Jon Umber, and (phonetically, at least) Yohn Royce. His true name, [[spoiler: Aegon Targaryen]], is shared not only with five historical kings, but also his half-brother. The Targaryens have about ten names that they keep using over and over, and many of those names look/sound alike. This makes it difficult to figure out which Aeron, Aemon, or Aegon is being discussed in a specific moment.

** Exploited in one episode ("F. Emasculata"). A pharmaceuticals company sends a contagion to a prisoner to study the effects of the contagion on a small group of people. [[spoiler: It turns out they chose him because he had the exact same name as the explorer who discovered the contagion. If the scandal came up, they could just claim it was the fault of the post office.]]
