'Game of Thrones' road renamed due to Lannister twincest

The developers of a new suburb whose street names are inspired by Game of Thrones have been forced to change one named after the Lannisters.

The project manager of the new development, Gary Smith, said: "They objected to that fact that it had a reference to incest... it's a fictional series".

One of the street names were not the case, because it was too controversial: it is Lannaster Road, the name of which has been amended by the real estate developer, because of the incestuous relationship of the siblings Cersei and Jammie Lannister in Game of Thrones.

It has now been renamed Precinct Road.

He added that he had even changed to spelling from Lannister to Lannaster to make the reference less obvious.

Mr Smith said he chose Lannaster Rd as it was a classy name and they were a wealthy family. "He's everybody's favourite - we should've given him a large avenue".

Other road names like Snow, Stannis and Greyjoy appear to have been accepted by the development's residents.

She signed off, " To all the artists here, I'm so inspired by you guys ". "There's so much rad s- happening right now in music". She began by recounting a story from her daughter Willow, who told her mum: 'I'm the ugliest girl I know'.

"You've got to think outside the box, we were getting so many names rejected".

If you want further proof that Game of Thrones reaches all facets of life then this story about a street in Australia should do it.

"[Names] must not be detrimental to the preservation of longstanding community values", City of Greater Geelong administrator Laurinda Gardner told the Advertiser.

"It is really hard to come up with street names these days, I always liked the Game of Thrones names as they are a bit out there", he said.

"The only big mistake we've made was naming a small street Snow Street", Smith said.

The renaming of the road will result in 13 properties requiring readdressing.

With Jon Snow growing ever closer to his aunt Daenerys in Game of Thrones, the issue of incest has once again become topical in the world's most beloved show, but as we've explained before, there's a long history of familial relationships in House Targareyn.
