"Nymeria, gloves."
Arya Stark[src]

Nymeria is one of six direwolf cubs found by the children of House Stark. Nymeria is adopted and raised by Arya Stark.

Arya named her after Nymeria of Dorne, the warrior-queen of the Rhoynar who lived a thousand years ago.

Biography

Season 1

Nymeria was adopted as a pup with the rest of the Stark direwolves when Eddard Stark and his entourage came upon the pups and their deceased mother. At the request of Jon Snow, the pups were spared and each Stark child adopted one as their own. Arya names her direwolf after a fearsome warrior-queen.

Arya trains her to help her pack for the journey south to King's Landing, and accompanies her as far as the Crossroads Inn.

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels Nymeria is an exuberant and playful wolf, but is also fiercely defensive of Arya Stark. Arya names Nymeria for the warrior-queen of the Rhoynar who led her people to safety in Dorne, a thousand years before the events of the series.

According to the TV series official pronunciation guide developed for the cast and crew, "Nymeria" is pronounced "Nigh-MEER-ee-uh", as opposed to "Nih-MER-ee-uh".
