‘Khaleesi’ is Becoming a Popular U.S. Name

Khaleesi blonde hairOn a scale of 1 to 10, how weird is Khaleesi (Ka-lease-ee) as a name for current and future earth-dwelling beings? Weird or not, it’s happening. According to babynamewizard.com exactly 146 Khaleesis were born in 2012.

It’s not exactly the worst Game of Thrones-inspired name. Out of all the characters, Khaleesi — played by Emilia Clarke on the HBO series — and Arya (another newly popular name) are two of the less morally corrupt.

Granted Khaleesi, which means “queen” in the fictional language of Dothraki, does eat a horse heart, and her ultimate goal is to see Lannister heads burnt by dragons and put on spikes, but she is mostly kind with good motives.

(At least “Joffrey,” “Cersei,” “Walder,” “Hodor” and “Eddard” didn’t make the list.)

I actually kind of like the name Cersei, and I guess there’d be low expectations. Like if the kid didn’t turn out to be a selfish, husband-murdering brother-f*cking sea hag you’d be proud. 

Other weird/crappy/bully-worthy namesSkyy (after the vodka), Pippa (Kate Middleton’s big-bootied sis), and Haddie (slightly obscure Parenthood reference).
