"Game of Thrones" has set the fashion for female names. In 2012, in the United States more than 150 baby girls were named Khaleesi - in honor of Emilia Clarke’s character. In the fictional Dothraki language it means “queen.” However, to be precise, Khalis is a title, not a name. However Daenerys is apparently still too exotic name for today's children, but 21 newborns were named Daenerys.
It turned out that Arya is the most popular name. In the same 2012, more than three thousand girls were named like that.
Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, has sheltered her "dire wolf" - or rather, the dog who played her faithful companion named Lady. However, the actress gave the pet another name - Zunni. It is a pity that Amelia Clark could not shelter any of her dragons.
Dothraki language, which conducted many dialogues - completely fictional language invented especially for the filming of the seriesThe language was developed by scholar David J. Peterson, who was selected for the job on a competitive basis - from 35 candidates.
Show was given the "green light" by a some miracle: channel management wanted to abandon the project. Shooting the pilot episode took almost a month, but some of the roles were played by very different actors (Daenerys Targaryen was played by an actress Tamzin Merchant, and Jennifer Ehle acted the part of Catelyn Stark.)
Author of "A Song of Ice and Fire", which was filmed for the show, George Martin had told the TV show producers what the outcome of his series of novels - in the case he die shy to see the final series.
