Naming a baby isn’t that easy. Some parents prefer to wait a while after the baby’s born before they agree on a name for their child. Others have a selection of names ready before the child is born. Some kids are given a name at birth that the parents change before they fill out the birth certificate.
There are lots of names that are popular for a number of years but fade very quickly, particularly names that are taken from film franchises and TV series. Those names have a limited lifespan although the parents giving their child the name won’t admit that to themselves. A name that’s growing in popularity now but will surely be ridiculous in a few years is Khaleesi.
Naming your child after a Game of Thrones character is obviously a silly thing to do unless you’re considering naming a boy after Jon Snow. Khaleesi is not even the character’s name – it’s Daenerys Targaryen’s nickname. This is a name that the child will grow up to question, so parents avoid it at all costs!
