Did You Know?
In Westeros, bastards (also "natural child" or "baseborn") born to nobles are given surnames different than their father's, according to the region they were born in. These surnames are mostly associated with the geographic or climatic features of the respective regions: The Reach - Flowers; The Westerlands - Hill, The Iron Islands - Pyke, The Riverlands - Rivers, Dorne - Sand, The North - Snow, The Vale - Stone, The Stormlands - Storm; The Crownlands - Waters. These special surnames or "bastard names" apply only to noble-born bastards, who are openly acknowledged by their noble parent. Therefore, bastards both of whose parents are commoners, or noble-born bastards that are unacknowledged by their noble parent (like Gendry), cannot use the special surname. A noble-born bastard can be legitimized by royal decree, thus being considered as a trueborn child and changes the surname to the father's. However, the social stigma of the bastard may not always be lifted even after legitimization. See more
