Hodor a slow witted stableboy over seven feet tall serving at Winterfell is the great grandson of Old Nan. There is a great deal of speculation as to who is his male ancestors were.

Origin of 'Hodor'; Hodor may in fact be the name of the Great Other. Melisandre says his name must not be spoken, so few people, if anyone, would recognize the name if they heard it. Old Nan says that Hodor's name is really Walder, and that no one knows where he got 'Hodor' from. There is a fair amount of Norse Mythology (which GRRM may have been influenced by) suggesting the connection. For example; the Great Other is the god of the cold and dark, and in Norse Mythology, there is a god named Hod/Hodur/Hoder who is the god of all things cold and dark.
