If you’re still not caught up on season 6 of Game of Thrones, this post will contain some serious spoilers so you may want to steer clear.

For most of us, finding out how the beautiful giant Hodor got his name was one of the most tragic (and mind-blowing) twists of the latest GoT season.

Thanks to Bran’s flashbacks, we saw a healthy young Hodor slowly transform before our eyes into a man who’s only able to say a variation of one thing, “Hold the door.” And while it makes total sense in English (which is the “common tongue” of the show and the native language of author George R.R. Martin), other languages had to get a little more crafty about Hodor’s name origin.

Thanks to Uproxx and an Imgur user (delightfully named HooptyDooDooMeister), we can now see how some of these other languages got to their “Hodor” name.

And some are definitely a little more of a stretch than others.

Here are just a few of the most interesting translations:
