Game of Thrones: Australian street name changed because of incest in HBO series

Game of Thrones is causing headaches for an Australian housing development due to street name changes inspired by characters and location in the popular HBO series.

One such controversial street name didn’t make the cut, however – Lannaster Road – with the developer of Charlemont Rise at Geelong in Victoria amending it due to the fact the name is linked to incestuous characters Cersei and Jaime Lannister, played by Lena Headey and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.

Project manager Gary Smith said: “The name was knocked back by the developers next door because of the relationship between the Lannister brother and sister on the show. I even changed the spelling to make it not as obvious.”

Lannaster Road is now officially Precinct Road.

According to The Guardian, the estate’s other street names include Stannis, Winterfell, Greyjoy, Baelish and – despite being a Lannister – Tywin.

The most thriving street name is inspired by Kit Harington’s character Jon Snow – the not-so-creative Snow Street.

Smith added: “The only big mistake we’ve made was naming a small street Snow Street. We thought Jon Snow was going to be dead but then he came back to life in the next season.

“He’s everybody’s favourite – we should’ve given him a large avenue.”

Season seven of the fantasy series draws to a close this weekend with a cryptically-titled finale that may or may not drop these three revelatory twists.

Game of Thrones airs in the US on HBO every Sunday where it is simulcast in the UK on Sky Atlantic at 2am. It is repeated that same evening on both Sky Atlantic and NOW TV.
