It’s a baby girl for Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas, and according to reports, the first-time parents named their bundle of joy Willa, a name that might have connections to “Game of Thrones.”

The couple announced the birth of their baby Monday, but the girl was actually born Wednesday, July 22.

“Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas are delighted to announce the birth of their baby,” their representative told People on Monday.

In case you didn’t know, Turner is best known for playing Sansa Stark for eight seasons on the wildly popular and incredibly good (except for that last season) TV show “Game of Thrones,” and of course, her husband Joe Jonas is a huge fan of it.

That’s why it’s not surprising to find out that the couple named their daughter Willa, a name that has multiple connections to the hit TV show.

Fans on the internet were quick to point out that there are two characters from the “Game of Thrones” universe with the name Willa.

First, there was a Willa who appeared in season five of the show as a young wildling girl, and another Willa showed up in season eight as a servant in Winterfell for the House of Stark, aka Turner’s character’s family.
