Married namesEdit

The HBO Viewer's Guide updated to refer to her as Lysa Baelish, but the Viewer's Guide has also shown a consistent disregard for the naming conventions of the novels.

That isn't how married names work in Westeros. House Baelish is a nobody, even if he recently became Lord of Harrenhal in name. House Arryn were kings for centuries. Women only take their husband's name if it's from a more powerful House. If it's universally considered that the woman is from a more powerful House, she retains her name.

Similarly, the HBO Viewer's Guide is still calling her "Sansa Lannister" despite the fact that her marriage wasn't consummated, was forced, and she has escaped it anyway.

While we're on the subject, "Cersei Lannister" remains "Cersei Lannister" and not "Cersei Baratheon".

Unless the TV show makes a point of switching the names, "Margaery Tyrell" will remain "Margaery Tyrell" even after her marriage to Tommen...particularly because, in the books at least, she hasn't consummated her marriage to a 12 year old yet.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 13:11, May 5, 2014 (UTC)

I'm in agreement that the page should be titled Lysa Arryn, but as a non-sysop, can the page at least be uniform? As it is, the title reads Arryn while the body reads Baelish. It's extremely confusing for readers if this inconsistency remains. Sharlto (talk) 02:22, May 19, 2014 (UTC)

Template updateEdit

Would an administrator mind updating the templates? Ardilaun (talk) 21:40, May 21, 2014 (UTC) http://gameofthrones.wikia.com/wiki/Template:Familytree/Lysa_Tully http://gameofthrones.wikia.com/wiki/Template:Familytree/Lysa_Arryn
