What happens when the inspiration for your baby’s name goes from feminist powerhouse to mass murderer?

[nypost.com]

On Sunday’s penultimate episode of “Game of Thrones,” the platinum-locked dragon queen Daenerys “Khaleesi” Targaryen (played by Emilia Clarke), long touted as the “Breaker of Chains” for freeing slaves and fighting for common folk, resembles a maniac rather than a monarch. Atop her fire-breathing beast, she scorches the city-dwellers of King’s Landing, the capital that houses the up-for-grabs Iron Throne — even after they surrender. Daenerys’ dramatic shift was a shock to superfans everywhere. Many have been religiously glued to every episode for nine years, but for some, the stakes have never been higher: Since 2011, some 3,562 babies were named Khaleesi or Daenerys, according to the Social Security Administration. Five hundred and sixty little Khaleesis came into the world in 2018 alone.
