This Theory On Jon Snow's True Name May Have Just Been Confirmed

Ned Stark Tower of Joy Game of Thrones

Although we learned Jon Snow's lineage, Game of Thrones Season 6 cleverly dropped the audio track when Lynna told a young Ned Stark what Jon's birth name was.

In the interview, Wright discusses how Bran, who witnessed Ned Stark's sister Lyanna giving birth to Jon Snow, "could change the entire story" with this newfound information.

The real name of Jon Snow (played by Kit Harington) has apparently been discovered to be Jaehaerys Targaryen, according to a magazine article.

"If Lyanna was in love with Rhaegar (as seems likely), it makes sense for their son to have a Targaryen traditional name like his siblings Aegon and Rhaenys".

But a Reddit post, which claims to have details from an upcoming issue of Empire, claims his name if in fact Jaehaerys Targaryen.

It also means that Jon could have even more claim to the Iron Throne than previously believed. This name is deliberately inaudible in the episode in order to build intrigue, but fans used the wonders of lip-reading and Ice and Fire lore to suggest that Lyanna had originally named Jon "Jaehaerys", a Targaryen name to match his father's ancestry.

Well, he would actually be the third Jaehaerys in the Game Of Thrones universe, if you follow the books - and the previous two have both been kings of the Iron Throne.

Jaehaerys II was Jon's great - grandfather.

"As we saw in the last episode of season six, Bran's (Isaac Hempstead Wright) psychic time-traveling "greensight" revealed the true nature of Jon's birth heritage and his real name: Jaehaerys Targaryen".

Rhaegar was the brother of Daenarys and Viserys and the son of Aerys, the "Mad King". If you wish to remain as pure as the driven Jon Snow, then do not proceed past this point. Jaehaeherys I, known as "the Old King", was a long-ruling Targaryen king who sat on the throne for 55 years, io9 notes.

Hold onto your horses...or dragons, depending on who you side with, as there's a potentially explosive Game of Thrones season 7 rumor floating around! This includes a major secret- which, as it turns out, is Jon Snow's real name (though, since it's not officially from HBO, it isn't confirmed).
