Has Jon Snow's Real Name Finally Been Confirmed?

A Reddit post claims to show the leaked upcoming new issue of Empire Magazine which includes an article about season 7. Since the discovery of this secret, many fans have wondered what could be the real name of Jon, that one does not hear when Bran has the vision that reveals the real identity of his brother.

What's in a name?

"As we saw in the last episode of Season 6, Bran's psychic time-travelling "greensight" revealed the true nature of Jon's birth heritage and his real name: Jaehaerys Targaryen".

One of the long-running sagas of Game of Thrones revolves around Jon Snow's mysterious name and parentage.

Could it be true? Because - while still not truly confirmed - Jon is actually the son of Lyanna and Rhaegar Targaryen.

Although the name tidbit is juicy, GOT fans are still craving their return to the world of Westeros.

6 policemen killed in militant ambush in south Kashmir
Also on Friday, Indian soldiers fired at a taxi after it ignored orders to halt at a checkpoint in northern Bandipora, Khan said. Militants had attacked a police party at Phambai in South Kashmir on May 28, killing five policemen and two bank guards.

By the light of the seven, a new season of Game of Thrones is but a month away! When a dying Lyanna hands the baby to Ned, she whispers "his name is." and then it became harder to make it out. "Bran's now in this precarious situation in which it's just him and Meera (Ellie Kendrick), and he has all of this information that could change the entire story", said Hempstead Wright.

Redditor theshivsharma from the Freefolk subreddit posted a link to a photo from what is purportedly Empire Magazine's Game of Thrones season 7 preview, and it appears to reveal Jon Snow's birth name.

Jon Snow's real name may well have just come to light. "'He knows about the origin of the White Walkers, too'". His wife Elia could not have any more children, and he knew there must be a third child (The dragon must have three heads).

The name does actually make a lot of sense: apparently Jaehaerys I was the longest reigning Targaryen king in history, and seemed to be an all-round pretty good guy.

Very convincing! So why is Jon's name Jon in the series if his parents named him Jaehaerys? He's revered for his wisdom, compassion, and intelligence, including healing a violent divide between the monarchy and the Faith Militant- a group that, you might recall, resurged recently.
