    My DH decided he wanted a direwolf after watching the show. He found a created breed of dog based after the extinct North American direwolf and has decided he wants one named Ghost desperately.
    If I had a baby right now they'd be:
    Isaac
    or
    Blaire

    I think it helps that Khaleesi is close to some real names, like Calise/Kelis and Kalea

    Daenerys seems more name-worthy

    Fox * Shea * Jade * Azure * Eden * Greer * Arden
    Lotus * Tallulah * Noor * Jasper * Blaise * Linden

    Aside from the Game of Thrones reference, I don't like the name itself. It reminds me of Parcheesi. You could go with something kind of similar like Callista, maybe?

    For everyone who doesn't watch/read game of thrones/a song of ice and fire, Khaleesi is an invented word, which is the Dothraki (made up language) equivalent of 'queen'. The Khaleesi, is the female ruler of the 'khalasar' (their tribe, essentially.)

    A lot of people seem to think Khaleesi is the name of Emilia Clarke's character, but really it is just the title she is given when she marries the king, or 'Khal'. Her character's actual name is Daenerys, or Dany.

    Now, if you know all this already, and most of you do I expect, (I see a lot of GoT pictures/names on here) and you still want to name your child Khaleesi, then go wild, all the power to you.

    I just think when using a name that is created for a show/book/movie/ whatever, you should know the background, because everyone will always associate that name with it, whether or not you do.
    I agree with everything you said. I feel the same way with Arwen. Yes, while it is actually a Welsh name,and I think it would be easier to use than Khaleesi, the LOTR connections are permanent. As much as I love Tolkien I don't think I could ever bring myself to use Arwen, unless it was in the middle name spot.

    Apparently, Khalessi is a surname - Persian/Iranian I believe.
