Meanings of Valyrian names?

Recommended Posts

I have been comparing High Valyrian names with the High Valyrian to English dictionary.

https://wiki.dothraki.org/High_Valyrian_Vocabulary

I found:

Daenerys :: dāez [daːɛ̯z] dāerior : adj. II free.

Jaehaerys ::  jaehio [ˈɟaɛ̯hi͡o] : n. 3lun goddess (female deity) ( < jaeh- + -io.)

Aegon :: āegion [ˈaːɛ̯gi͡on] :  n. 3ter. iron [7]
