Kaylee, Kayley, Kayleigh

Name Nerds main

FOR REAL: Kaylee is one of those names that seemingly appeared out of the blue sometime in the 80s. It seems like each name book you find has a different meaning for it; some saying it's Irish, some Greek, etc. There is a rare Irish surname, Kayley, which is an anglicization of Ó Caollaidhe meaning "slender." However, this name more often than not is anglicized Kealley, Keeley, or Queeley. In reality, I think it's probably a combination of Kay and Lee, a variation of Hayley, Kelly etc. In current usage it is sometimes a pet form of Michaela.
