Gender: F Pronunciation: Ka-LEE-zee Origin of Khaleesi: Modern invented name Khaleesi's Popularity in 2014: #755

Khaleesi is an invented name introduced to the world by inventive and prolific author George R. R. Martin for his wildly popular "Game of Thrones" series -- it's Dothraki for "queen" and is one of the titles of the character Daenerys. Martin's series is having a powerful influence on the baby name culture, with sister name Arya the fastest rising girls' name in the U.S. in 2012. We can't help feel, however, that this name is going to date about as fast as a pointy-toed boots or feathered hair. Advice: look for another name.
