I watch this name on game on thrones and I found it very interesting!it's pronounced Kha -Lay -see and not ka -lee-see
What do you think?
Also do you like petronilla?“I am a forest, and a night of dark trees: but he who is not afraid of my darkness, will find banks full of roses under my cypresses.”

with the name spelt Khaleesi, it will get miss pronounced all the time.

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 am a forest, and a night of dark trees: but he who is not afraid of my darkness, will find banks full of roses under my cypresses.”

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.** The opinions expressed above are not meant to be reflective of Nameberry as a whole but are my opinion and mine alone. **
