Tywin: baby boy name meaning and popularity



A modern invented literary name; Tywin is the ruthless patriarch of the Lannister family in the "Game of Thrones" universe. He may have been an unlikable character, but dang it, his name is pretty stylish-sounding -- and not quite as recognizable as some of the characters' names, so he may never have to deal with people ribbing him about being named after a guy who died on the toilet.
