- Personal experiences with the name Khaleesi
My daughter is named Khaleesi. We call her Khali. I've had it pronounced Kalyssa, Kalypso, Kaleesa, Kaley, and my personal favorite, Kaleefee. I love her name, but you will always have to tell people how to pronounce or spell it. I'm used to that, though, being Krystal. It will likely be fun to teach her how to spell her name but we will see since she's only an infant now
