241 Babies Named ‘Khaleesi’ Last Year

dragon baby mobileGame of Thrones is SO popular, you can’t even look through a window without seeing your conservative neighbors licking cherry syrup off each other in Khal Drogo and Daenerys outfits.

It’s the most pirated show of all time, it’s getting its own video game, Stark daughters Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner are reigning queens of social media, and people are naming their damn children after characters on the show.

According to the Social Security Administration, 1135 parents in America named their newborns “Arya” in 2013 and 241 went with “Khaleesi,” after the mother of dragons.

Man, pretty much any baby with that name is going to be a huge disappointment. Oh, Khaleesi said her first words today? Khaleesi used the big girl potty for the first time?? Took her first step? CALL ME WHEN SHE’S TAKING THOSE STEPS INTO A FIRE WITH THREE PETRIFIED DRAGON EGGS!!  Continue reading “241 Babies Named ‘Khaleesi’ Last Year”

Trailer: Game of Thrones Season 4: Vengeance

Another month passes that I continue to slack off and NOT catch up with the Song of Ice and Fire books in time for a new season. In the new trailer, Arya Stark is planning to roast Lannister body parts kebob-style, leaving all the ignant non-book smart folk wondering if the Khaleesi and her dragons will beat her to it.

Meanwhile, Joffrey’s marrying the ginger with the good boobs and Tyrion is living in fear of his own family, but the queen is PROBABLY too busy making kissy faces with her boyfriend-brother to kill him just yet.

Get your finger on the remote/torrent downloading button – Game of Thrones returns to HBO on April 6!

‘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.  Continue reading “‘Khaleesi’ is Becoming a Popular U.S. Name”

Video: Game of Thrones Season 3 Trailer #2

A second, longer Game of Thrones season three trailer is here, oddly featuring music from Tron. DID YOU KNOW that Khaleesi’s hair is burnt to a crisp on multiple dragon-related occasions in the book?

So good to see her with a full head of hair. And good that the producers cast normal Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister, instead of a mutated Picasso-faced alien with two-toned eyes and hair.

Emilia Clarke’s Uncle Surprised By ‘Game of Thrones’ Nude Scenes

Emilia Clarke brunetteRelax. Isn’t one of those creepy uncle perv stories.

(Not EVERYONE has an inappropriate relative who stirs up a yearly family forum on whether dad’s gross uncle so-and-so deserves an invite to Christmas Eve dinner.)

London-born Emilia Clarke plays Daenerys Targaryen, also known as the Khaleesi and Queen of Dragons, on HBO’s better-than-all-current-onscreen-fantasy Game of Thrones.

On Monday Clarke visited Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk about the third season, which premieres March 31, 2013.
