Here’s Proof That Jon Snow Really Does Know Nothing
When Glamour asked him about why his true moniker, Christopher, was not disclosed to him, the 27-year-old, “I haven’t got a clue! I think they could see that I wanted to be Kit, but Christopher was a bit of a tradition.”
“My brother’s name is Jack, but his real name is John. Kit is traditionally an offshoot of Christopher, it’s just not used that often. My middle name is Catesby,” he continued.”It’s cool, isn’t it? It’s also my brother’s middle name. Jake Catesby and Kit Catesby. It’s my mom’s maiden name, actually.”
So, why didn’t he go with Kit Catesby as his professional name?
“I nearly did, but I thought it sounded too much like a 1950s talk-show host. I was close, actually!” Harington explained. “Sometimes I think, ‘That would have been a cool name, but Kit Harington works.'”
