Talk: Sand Snakes
Are Obara, Nymeria and Sarella "real SANDS"?
According to the books a bastard takes the surname of the location of the mother. Obaras mother was a whore of Oldtown, wouldn't this mean that Obaras real bastard name would be "Flowers"? And Nymeria's mother was from Volantis, Sarella's from the Summer Islands. Could it be that they use the name "Sand" just because of his father, ignoring their mothers background? Identical to Jon Snow who took the bastard-name of the North, because he didn't know who his mother was? --Exodianecross 18:41, 7 December 2014 (UTC)
