I've actually seen a few birth announcements with Khaleesi, and in 2012 146 people named their daughter Khaleesi in the US, so you're not alone!
As a fan of the book (and of course the show) I can understand the attraction, as I love the character! Personally I prefer Daenerys though
Petronilla I'm not a fan of, it sounds like a character from a pantomime, or like one of Cinderella's stepsisters - it's a bit over the top. But that may also be because Petra is a favourite of mine, so different versions of it don't seem quite right to me.Come visit my name blog! http://babynamepondering.blogspot.com.au/

It's pronounced Khal-EE-see, I don't know where you've heard that "kha-ley-see" should be the correct pronunciation, but it's not. There's no "ley" sound in the word.
I personally think it would be bizarre to name a child Khal or Khaleesi, but that might just be me who's an absolute A Song of Ice and Fire nerd. To me it would be just as obnoxious as naming your child King, Queen, Emperor, Empress, Tsar or Tsaritsa. It's a title, not a name. If you like the character, I'd suggest you to use Daenerys or Dany instead.
Can't say I'm fond of Petronilla either.Exporting old Danish names, Greenlandic names and Greenlandic sibling names

Sorry to anyone who read TSI. First draft was terrible. Second drafting now.
