Dornish names are found in the 'A Song Of Ice And Fire' novel series and the hugely popular 'Game Of Thrones' TV series.

One of the greatest houses of the Seven Kingdoms is the House Martell that rules over the Kingdom of Dorne. Those living in the Kingdom of Dorne are called the Dornish.

The rulers of the House Martell are the Dornish Lords and, along with Dornish Kings, Queens, Princes and Princesses, they follow the fashion of Rhoynar. House Martell is ruled from the capital of Dorne, also known as Sunspear. The region of Dorne is dry, arid, rocky, and mountainous. The red wine featured in the web series is Arbor Red.
