    We named our cat Khaleesi. Never heard it pronounced with the 'lay' sound.

    Petronilla sounds like a gas(petrol) station or a cough medicine....

    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.
