Not quite. I am very involved with pop culture and could not tell you or recognize a character from it.

Only with rich people and those willing to pirate.

I named my dog Arya and I'd say an overwhelming majority of people instantly recognize the reference.

You're right, it is a part of even my poor, hbo-less pop culture. Until yesterday when I wore it, I had forgotten, my nephew gave me a tee shirt with something about a "Direwolf" on it. I think he said he bought it when he was stationed in Westeros.
