Does anyone find it strange that the word Khaleesi looks and sounds a lot like the Arabic name Khalisah (Arabic, خليصة بنت سنان الجيلاني), which basically means "sincere" or "pure"?
Just tossing it around, see what you guys make of it.
...Random syllable associations are bound to mean something in any given language. No, "Khalisah" ain't all that similar to "khaleesi". It's the feminine of "khal", sounds a bit like "khan".....but I forget myself. Hello, Anonymous New Person Who Has Never Contributed To This Wiki.

How about adding
As a trivia or "behind the scene" item: since Daenerys is referred to so often as khaleesi rather than by her name, many fans think it is her name instead of her title, and refer to her by that word.
