    Hmm, I am an avid GoT fan as well, and I've only heard them pronounce it kah-lee-see.

    Regardless, I think it's far too tied to the series to use on a human being - it was invented for it, after all, and is a title (essentially meaning "queen") as opposed to her name (which is Daenerys Targaryan.

    Petronilla sounds like an alcoholic drink.

    In the series actually pronounced Kah -lee -see but later a guy I think the owner say that they actually pronounced that way because they think lots of people will pronounce it like that but it's totally wrong because its pronounced Kha -lay -see like he said. But I think I prefer Kah-lee-see lol!

    I dislike Khaleesi and kah-lee-see is the more intuitive pronunciation. Kah-lay-see will have pronunciation issues.

    Petronilla reminds me of a combination of citronella candles and petrol.
