House Liddle is the formal name given to the Liddles, one of the northern mountain clans in the north. They inhabit the high mountains north of the wolfswood. The chief of the clan is known as "The Liddle", although at Winterfell he is given the treatment of "Lord Liddle".
Their arms are per pale white and green, a fir tree line between, three brown pinecones on the white. Their motto does not appear in the books.
A Storm of Swords
Bran Stark recalls there are some Liddles living in the high places during his journey to the Wall with Hodor, Meera, and Jojen Reed. They meet a man from the mountain clans whom Bran identifies as a Liddle because of the pinecone-shaped gold and bronze clasp fastening his cloak. The Liddle shares oatcakes, blood sausage, and ale, without asking their names nor giving his.

Behind the Scenes
Big Liddle, Middle Liddle, and Little Liddle are probably references by George R. R. Martin to Liddell & Scott, a standard lexicographic work of Ancient Greek, which was published in three sizes called "The Big Liddell", "The Middle Liddell" and "The Little Liddell".
