In the final season, Tormund explained how he received the name Giantsbane, saying, "I killed a giant when I was 10. Then I climbed right into bed with his wife. When she woke up, you know what she did? Suckled me at her teat for three months. Thought I was her baby. That’s how I got so strong: giant's milk."

Tormund's giant's milk story became one of the biggest memes from Game of Thrones' final season.
