A season 7 spoiler from the /r/ASOIAF subreddit, reveals Jon Snow's real name.

What's in a name?

The excerpt reads, "As we saw in the last episode of Season 6, Bran's (Isaac Hempstead Wright) psychic time-travelling "greensight" revealed the true nature of Jon's birth heritage and his real name: Jaehaerys Targaryen", a portion below the photo of Bran and Meera reads.

Meanwhile, his namesake Jaehaerys II was the father of the Mad King, Aerys Targaryen, making him the great grandfather to Jon Snow. Aemon and even Aegon have been floated in the past, but much like the character himself, at this early stage, we really know nothing official about Jon Snow's actual name.

Could it be true?

The most most popular fan theory ('R+L=J') suggests that Jon's parents are Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark.

Game of Thrones returns to HBO on July 16 and will be simulcast on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV in the United Kingdom at 2am.

In her final moments with her brother Ned (Sean Bean), Lyanna whispered something in his ear that was inaudible to viewers, but which some lip-readers have claimed can be interpreted as his true name.

While it is uncertain where Empire got the information and whether it is just speculation, Jaehaerys Targaryen could well be Jon's real name. But until then, melty continues to make you wait and it is from the famous Jon Snow (Kit Harington) that we will speak to you today. "He knows all about the origin of the White Walkers, too".

Jaehaerys Targaryen is definitely an old Targaryen family name. In its current issue, the magazine wrote, "As "Game Of Thrones" embarks upon its penultimate season, we head to Westeros to learn 15 things from the cast, from Targaryen to Lannister and everything in between". But for those who have been clamoring to know Jon's real name, if you don't Snow, now you Snow.

He was also a well-liked ruler, notable for his kindness, compassion and intellect. Jaehaerys I also helped mitigate a strong conflict between the throne and the Faith Militant - dissension that resurfaces over time and is readily visible throughout Season 6 of "Thrones".
