    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.

    I agree with the Khaleesi bit. It's a title invented for a story and is in a fictional language.

    As for Petronilla, it sounds like a mix of a gasoline brand and citronella.

    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!
