FYC:
Jon "White Wolf" Snow and instead of Eddard "Ned" Stark

 May want to consider this as an image poll, as half of these characters have really good images, indication the origin of their nickname or a visual tie-in: Young Wolf, Red Woman, Mad King, Hodor and others.

Benu,

Thank you.

I have added Jon Snow and also, I am keeping Ned Stark.

At this moment, I am keeping this as a 'Character' list.

You may want to consider Rattleshirt aka Lord of Bones. The phrase is likely a nickname rather than a title. It seems to be a nickname in reference to his skull mask and bone vest he wears. He seems to be the only one that dresses that way in his Free Folk clan or on "Game of Thrones". My only hesitation is the GoT wikia says his real name is unknown???

I was watching "Hardhome" the other day, Tormund greeted him by calling, Lord of Bones before they got into a fight over Jon Snow. It didn't end well for him. You should probably should make it plural.

Nicknames:
 Rattleshirt & Lord of Bones.

Speaking of GoT expertise. I ran across an interesting tidbit about this cat and thought of your Non-Human Characters of "Game of Thrones"  but your thread was lost on the conversion to GS. This is the cat Araya was chasing to improve her reactions for her "Water Dance" lessons with Syrio. Supposedly, according to some fans based on the books the cat may be more than it seems.

Benu,

The cat looks like 'Ser Pounce' (http://gameofthrones.wikia.com/wiki/Ser_Pounce). Are they two different cats?

I couldn't believe they have a section devoted to GoT cats. They look different in age, but that could be accounted for by the different time frames/seasons. Plus, Ser Pounce looks like a long-haired cat and this one is a short-haired cat. I don't know for sure and wikia speaks about both, but doesn't say one way or another, if they are the same or different. Plus, goe on  in the books section about Arya chasing a black cat and Joffrey's propensity to kill cats. I guess with the uncertainty, I would leave it out, unless it pops back into the storyline

Another possibility, real name unknown. The oyster-eating seafarer insurance salesperson from Braavos, aka Thin man. I am not sure whether that is his nickname or something Arya or Jaqen H'gher call him.

Some characters have two or more nicknames like Sam, Jon,  and Brienne, you may want to consider listing both when that is the case ie The Maid of Tarth, or the more disparagingly, Brienne the Beauty

PS: I like the set up of your poll suggestion. It is looking good.

FYC "Sword of the Morning" is a title rather than nickname, it's inclusion would be like saying Jon Snow's nickname was "Lord Commander" or Donald Trump's nickname is "Mr. President".

Ser Arthur Dayne was a knight of House Dayne who bore the title of "Sword of the Morning" as he possessed the ancestral sword of House Dayne, Their ancestral weapon is Dawn, a blade forged from the metal of a fallen star. The Dayne knight that bears the sword is granted the title of "the Sword of the Morning".

I was thinking Arya should have a nickname, as she works on her kill list, I'm sure her legend will grow this season and she will acquire one. I would keep an ear out for one as the season progresses. Your poll suggestion is getting a lot of hits, this definitely should go live.

Her comment from Dragonstone (episode) Arya Stark: (disguised) "Leave one wolf alive...and the sheep are never safe."  got me thinking the lone wolf would perfect, . We shall see.

A good time to add Daenerys "Stormborn" Targaryen  going into the next episode: Stormborn (2017) TV episode.

"The title refers to Daenerys Targaryen, and how she received her personal sobriquet, "Daenerys Stormborn" (which she has used throughout the series). Right before the rebels arrived at King's Landing at the end of Robert's Rebellion, her pregnant mother was sent to safety on Dragonstone. Her mother went into labor soon afterward, during a massive storm that smashed to pieces what little was left of the Targaryen fleet anchored at Dragonstone, before dying in childbirth. Being born during this ill-omened storm, she earned the nickname "Daenerys Stormborn"." It has been spoken of and discussed in prior episodes, so I wouldn't consider it spoilerish. I also think the nickname has added significance that will possibly play out in the future.

Thanks Benu.

Real name: Daenerys Targaryen.

The GoT wikia has nicknames and also known as listed, as well as titles of the profile pages of each  and every character. Daenerys Targaryen | Game of Thrones Wiki | The bolded ones I am positive about, the  un-bolded others I am less sure about or maybe only in the books. Many have been used when introducing or announcing her and listing all her titles and names she is called by her followers.

Nicknames: Daenerys Stormborn, The Dragon Queen & Mother of Dragons

Also known as
Daenerys of the House Targaryen,
the First of Her Name
Daenerys Stormborn
Mother of Dragons
Mhysa
Dany
The Dragon Queen
The Unburnt
The Queen Across the Sea

The Silver Queen ???
The Beggar Queen ??? Viserys is known as "the Beggar King"
The Prince That Was Promised spoiler-ish and unproven as multiple character have hints that match the prophecy

Perfecto! Those are the ones I would choose too.  IMHO Going forward, I would cap everyone at their best five nicknames, if they have that many.

DC, check this search out http://gameofthrones.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Search?query=nicknames

You have to be careful to cross-check the nicknames to verify they were used on the TV series, rather than just in the books. But, it seems like you could mine some more, like Steelshanks Walton (Game of Thrones (2011)). He got his nickname from the steel greaves he wears over his long legs, his real name is Walton and nickname "Steelshanks". Dongo the Giant (Game of Thrones (2011)) is really a nickname that the human wildlings came up with for the giant whose full name in the Old Tongue is "Mag Mar Tun Doh Weg". Jorah Mormont (Game of Thrones (2011)) nicknamed "Jorah the Andal" by the Dothraki, due to his Westerosi origins. Mag the Mighty (Game of Thrones (2011)) is nicknamed "Mag the Mighty" is properly named "Mag Mar Tun Doh Weg" in the Old Tongue.

Plus, I forgot Breaker of Chains in another name Dany is called for her liberation of the slaves.

Follow-up: Arya Stark - Lone Wolf
I have yet hear the nickname used on-screen yet. But, based on its use by the fandom and a second symbolic lone wolf moment in two consecutive episodes, it seems probable it will be soon. I also wonder if your always alone, is there really anyone around to call you the "lone wolf".  I thought I would pass along link with the Lone Wolf moment that is spoiler-ish if you haven't seen "Game of Thrones" Stormborn (TV Episode 2017) yet.
