"Much respect to you"? I suppose that would be one way to put it.

Oh. It was. I've totally gotten that forgotten and mixed with yer chomoe anna. Somehow it hasn't made it's way to out idioms n' phrases page. That is the phrase David originally gave us as "thank you" phrase. Yer chomoe anna we learned later.

Of course neither Yer chomoe anna nor San athchomari yeraan just means "thank you" they mean what they mean, and either IMO can be used/translated as "Thank you". It should be easy enough to guesstimate the difference in tone and choose whichever fits best.
Game of Thrones is not The Song of Ice and Fire, sweetling. You'll learn that one day to your sorrow.
