This weekend’s question comes from Diogo:

If you were part of a highborn family in the Game of Thrones universe, what would be your house words?

You don’t need to be a Game of Thrones fan to play along, of course. House words are like a family motto. A few examples (from Westeros.org):

House Targaryen of King’s Landing – Fire and Blood
House Stark of Winterfell – Winter is Coming
House Hornwood of Hornwood – Righteous in Wrath
House Crakehall of Crakehall – None so Fierce
House Hightower of the Hightower – We Light the Way
House Lonmouth – The Choice Is Yours
House Jordayne of the Tor – Let It Be Written
House Codd – Though All Men Do Despise Us

As you can see from the last one, they’re not all proud and noble… though most of them are.

Diogo says:

Mine would be “House Silva: Growing Lazy.”

Mine might be: “House Johanson: Wine? Or Tea?” (I started creating my sigil at HBO’s Join the Realm, but I had to customize it further than the options it offered.)

Yours?

PS: I still haven’t had a chance to watch the new series Must do that very soon…

(If you have a suggestion for a Question, feel free to email me.)

    i’ll use the motto once bestowed on us. House Black: Though We Be Strange, Yet Are We Strong. though for my personal house, it would be: Routine Is The Enemy.

  • House Wartenberg: Always Call For Help, And Keep Your Damn Mouth Shut. It’s based on the advice dad gave us boys if we should ever find ourselves getting hauled in by the cops…
