Parents Are Actually Naming Their Babies Khaleesi

by at .

As it turns out, Kim Kardashian and Gwyneth Paltrow didn't come up with such bizarre baby names after all.

According to data from the Social Security Administration in 2012, there were 146 female babies born in the United States that year named Khaleesi.

This, of course, is the moniker given to Emilia Clarke’s character on Game of Thrones after she marries a Dothraki leader on Season 1 of the HBO epic.

Emilia Clarke as Khaleesi

The unusual name (which makes North and Apple seem downright normal) is more popular than some more typical female names, such as Brandy (130) and Alex (128).

Khaleesi’s given name, Daenerys, was given to 21 children in 2012.

With Game of Thrones having just been renewed for TWO more season, it's only a matter of time before Tyrion, Samwell and Ygritte start making this list. 

God help us all.
