Aside from references in the books, Bran's mother clearly calls him "Brandon" at around 23:43 into episode 1 as he is caught climbing down one of the castle's inner walls. It seems best to have his full name, rather than a nickname as the article title, but we need to come up with a suitable distinction between the young Bran, and his deceased uncle Brandon Stark. If I had to come up with one on the spot, I think something like "Brandon Stark (the elder)" would work - at least for now. Bran Stark should then redirect to "Brandon Stark" as the son of Eddard is what the vast majority would be searching for.

Origins of Greenseeing and Warging AbilitiesEdit
If Greenseeing and "skin-changing" were originally abilities belonging to the Children of the Forest, then I wonder if these skills were taught to the First Men, or maybe there occurred limited degree of interbreeding between the two races in the earlier centuries of contact? If the latter, then perhaps many greenseers or wargs in contemporary Westeros, including the Stark dynasty, may well be partially descended from the Children of the Forest.
- The Children of the Forest weren't very human, no one ever suggests cross-breeding occurred; the general assumption is that this ability was taught to the First Men as was their religion. Really...the children of the forest are described as basically humanoid, tail-less squirrels the size of a ten year old human. I think they're too different for cross-breeding to work.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 22:49, June 20, 2013 (UTC)
- Okay! Just an idea. I wasn't attached to it. So perhaps the Old Gods of the forest impart these abilities on people whom actively worship or commune with them? --Fenrir51 (talk) 22:59, June 20, 2013 (UTC)
King in the North Edit
Should it be mentioned that after the Red Wedding, Bran is the new King in the North? 220.127.116.11 13:45, September 16, 2013 (UTC)
- No. There is no King of the North anymore. Technically Bran is Robb's heir in exile, but that's just a legal technicality. He doesn't sit the throne at Winterfell or anything. Get used to Bolton rule: Ramsay Snow, serial rapist and homicidal maniac, is the new Lord of Winterfell. Long may he reign.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 17:34, September 16, 2013 (UTC)
Bran Warging HodorEdit
In the Season 4 finale, Bran initially ordered Hodor to help Meera and Jojen against the skeletal wights attacking them. Wouldn't he have known by then to just warg into Hodor, or is it the sort of an experience he did not want to repeat after killing Locke in episode 5? --Fenrir51 (talk) 22:40, June 18, 2014 (UTC)
