Just in time for the return of Game of Thrones, Banfield Pet Hospital, the largest general veterinary practice in the U.S., mined its veterinary medical records database to uncover which GoT-inspired pet names reigned supreme among the more than three million dogs and cats cared for at its hospitals in 2018. While Arya didn't come out on top, the name did show a lot of movement in the past year, with 21 percent more dogs and 13 percent more cats sharing a name with Ned and Catelyn Stark's youngest daughter. But the real star of 2018—statistically-speaking, at least—was Daenerys's beloved dragon Drogon. Though he didn't make the cut for the top 10 names, the number of puppers bearing his fierce moniker rose by a whopping 64 percent between 2017 and 2018. (client)Mental Floss 4/2/19

The world-famous Bellagio Fountains got in on the Game of Thrones buzz by putting on a special show. Lake Bellagio transformed into an 800-foot-long water wall, similar to the wall that was meant to keep the White Walkers out of Westeros.
