by Denise K. Potter/Nameberry

The cool baby names this summer include the 12 newest choices on Nameberry, inspired by ancient queens and celebrity newborns, fictional characters and an Ethiopian cabdriver! If your definition of cool baby names are those that are exotic, quirky, and unusual, our dozen newest choices may inspire you. (Buy this St. Kateri oranment on Etsy.) 


This creative baby name is pure pop culture. A product of author George R.R. Martin’s hit series Game of Thrones, Khaleesi is Dothraki (a language Martin invented) for “queen” and is one of the titles of main character Daenerys.
