146 Baby Girls In the US Are Named Khaleesi

According to The Baby Name Wizard Blog there are now 146 American girls named Khaleesi, up 450% from 2011. Before then the name “was completely unknown,” much to my lack of surprise.

Her name is Daenerys, and she was given the title Khaleesi, the equivalent of queen, when she married Khal (meaning king – surprise surprise) Drogo.

This is the English equivalent of naming your kid “Prince” or “Earl” – only slightly better than naming your kid after a cardinal direction (like anyone would ever do that).
