    I plan to name any future kids after some of his characters, I was planning on giving a future son a second or third name which is actually a character from Fevre Dream, which is a non-GOT/SFI title by GRR Martin, its my favourite book next to Drawing The Dark which isnt by GRR Martin.

    My friend named her new kitten Khaleesi. She's a holy terror.

    I find it a bit annoying, because it reveals shallowness. People who name their daughter 'Khaleesi' must have missed that it is a rank, not a name, meaning that although they have not even paid sufficent attention to the TV series to know that much, they still insist on pretending to be interested in the stories. Who names their daughter 'Queen'? Even 'North' is a better choice.

    I think giving them a middle name like that is acceptable. But having it as a first name seems unfair. Poor Kal-El Cage.

    In certain cultures giving a rank as a name is quite common. King, Queen, Prince etc are a few of the most common of them. Infact even in certain Western cultures names such as those aren't rare.

    Could just be a stage name though.
