Name of Thrones

When you ask the Internet to vote on the name of your baby, you should expect something like this. Over the past few days we saw a huge surge of votes for the name Stannis, as in Stannis Baratheon, Lord of Dragonstone in Game of Thrones.

I can’t feel too bad about all the votes for a fictional character – after all, this is a fund raiser, and Googlers are donating $1 to Save the Children for every vote. We still have a ways to go before we reach our goal, so please vote.
