Does anyone know where the name Daenerys comes from?
I found out about this name through watching the HBO show "Game of Thrones" this summer. I love this name the spelling, the sound, everything about it. What I don't love is that I don't know where it came from? I know the show is based off a book so it could just be made up. But it also sounds and looks a little similar to an old Greek name Damaris which means calf. So could it be a variation of Damaris?
If anyone knows its origin please let me know. I would also love anyones thoughts on a good mn for Daenerys. Thanks!
