Whenever I think of the name Bailey, Bailey's Irish Cream comes in mind. It would be horrible to go through life being named after an alcoholic beverage (unless you were alcoholic).

I love that name, well because it's my name too, lol. Well it's not hard at all to have a name after an alcholic beverage. I'm only 15 so I'm not an alcoholic, lol.

Beetle Bailey is a lazy army private in a comic strip of the same name.

I think the character George Bailey (Jimmy Stewart) in the film 'It's a Wonderful Life' is a nice inspiration for using this name.

I have to say this is my least favorite name for a boy or a girl. It would be fine if the child were always going to stay 3 years old but it does not sound like a grown up name. If I were a boy with this name I would be very embarrassed!
-- bedrock  1/6/2006
Everytime I hear this name I think of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey, the circus! Almost as bad as an alcholic beverage! haha
-- rubberduckiiz2  1/9/2006
I think this makes a good pet name. The fact that it can fit a boy or a girl is sweet. No offense to the people who like this name or have it, but it just never struck me as a good human name. Also, I think that, given the name's root (coming from the word for "bailiff"), a lawyer would do well to pick this name. Cheesy? Maybe so, but not as cheesy as a baker naming his/her dog "Muffin" or "Cupcake."

I'm afraid I have to agree with some of the other comments. I always thought it was a great name for a dog.

I have this name and a lot of people say they like it. My middle name is Ann and sometimes I go by Bailey Ann, because they sound nice together. Also, I have met many, many pets with my name, but only 2 other people.

I think Bailey is a tired girl's name. But I kinda like it as a boy's name, it's different. Bailey is Ross Thomas's characters name one Beyond the Break.

I really don’t like the name Bailey, for a girl or a boy, although I think it’s more suited for a boy than a girl. I think this is a name I would give to my dog, not my child.
-- TiffanyS  8/18/2006
Bailey started becoming more popular for girls than boys after the harried-career-woman character Bailey Quarters was introduced on "WKRP In Cincinnati". There was an upswing in boy Baileys after the name was used for Scott Wolf's character in "Party of Five".

Bailey is another name, like Madison, that is atrocious for a little girl. Like Madison, it's not the least bit feminine sounding or pleasing to the ear. But thankfully, it's not as insanely popular.

I don't like this name for a child or a dog. It's just ugly sounding. I would like to know why people must choose Chrisitan names? Um, it's kind of obvious that not everyone is Christian which would defy the point of a Christian name.
-- crazykls  11/25/2007
Christian name means your given name, your first name, not necessarily a name from Christianity.

I like Bailey and I do think that it is feminine enough, but a little too trendy. A very fresh name to me.

I think it is very pretty!
-- dog lvr  4/5/2008
This name is okay on boys and men, but I wouldn't use it on a girl. The reason is that while it may sound decent on a girl, especially if she is somewhat tomboyish, it will not sound particularly mature or sophisticated on a woman. Somehow, on girls, this name sounds too youthful.
-- slight night shiver  4/20/2008
I hate the name Bayley, it is possible that this name is the WORST name I have ever heard, sorry.

This is my name and I think it TOTALLY a girls name. I like this spelling more then Baylee or Bailee. Those sound like you're spelling them wrong.

My name is Bailey and I love my name. So what if it is the name of an alcohol drink, or whatever. I was named for my grandma's maiden name, and I think it is a great name for a girl, but for a boy it is okay.
-- bailey14  5/30/2008
I believe I'll be breaking the trend of people named Bailey saying they love their name, but I really don't like it. It's not even a name I would choose to give a dog.

I don't care for Bailey as a name for a boy or girl. It sounds like a wimpy name for a boy. Just my opinon though.
-- RooRoo  9/8/2008
This is my name, and I actually like it. My name is not based off of the English (I think) bailiff, but the Scandinavian, meaning heroine. So people, my parents did not think I was going to be a lawyer.
-- Elise  11/10/2008
I don't know why so many people don't like the name Bailey; I really like it. I like it for both genders, but strongly prefer it on a girl. It doesn't seem so youthful on a female when she's a mellow and sweet kind of person. Anyaways, on a girl, Bailey stands for.

Youthful (in a very good way)
-- Dragon_Clarinet  11/12/2008
My name is Bailey. It's ok, I could've had a girlier name, but I do like my name. Except for I've noticed that people with the last name Bailey are very successful. I've heard of Bailey Cable, Bailey & Sons Oil Co., Bailey's (the beer), seen a restaurant named Bailey, etc. I like my name. It fits me well. The few problems I've had with my name are:
1)My best friend's name is Hailey and I'm with her all the time, therefore I get called Hailey all the time and she gets called Bailey.
2)People tend to spell it Baily
3)I hate the nickname Bay
4)It is a unisex name/popular last name
When you look up Bailey in the dictionary you get: "noun, the outer wall of a courtyard" which I like because the wall is strong and so am I.

I'm a huge fan of Dr. Bailey on Grey's Anatomy so I would love to use this name. Not for a child though, for a dog. I've decided that when I get my first dog, I'm gonna name him/her Bailey.
-- renee06  9/19/2009
Being a Bailey. I am constantly haunted by the liquor, cigarette brand, and numerous bars. It strikes me as strange to believe that my mother named me this after George Bailey from It's a Wonderful Life, in the midst of the common usage of the name. As a young adult I have ran across more people with this as a last name rather than a first. So, if you don't mind that your child will have to explain his or her name constantly, you should name them Bailey. It is unique and bold and not a bad name after all.
-- nopickles  11/24/2009
Oh come on. I think of times I've tried to drink Baileys Irish Cream and instantly want to puke. I'm sure most people will share this reaction. The name itself isn't bad, but the liquor connection is annoying.

Bailey is a character in Disney's "The Suite Life On Deck".
-- SunnyHoney  4/29/2010
Bailey is like the new Rover of dog names. When I got my dog, she was already named Bailey, and obeyed that name. It's an alright name, but getting overused. We can't throw a tennis ball in a dog park without hitting another Bailey. Also, it's always awkward when a person tells me her name is Bailey, and without thinking, I respond- "oh, that's my dog's name". It's like their name is as doggish as Muffin or Snoopy. I wouldn't recommend this name until the dog-fad dies down.
-- JW41926  5/4/2010
My name is Bailey. When I was little I hated my name. Currently I like my name I like how it sounds with my middle name. However in life there are some things I have disliked about it

1. My first crush named his dog Bailey (he claimed his sister named it)

2. There was at one point a boy in my class with the same name but a different spelling

3. Because of # 2 the school spelled my name wrong for years

I suppose most of those are not likely to happen to someone else but I felt like they needed to be said.

-- Chrila96  10/29/2010
I think the spelling Bailey is good for a boy. There's a girl I know with the same exact name but spelled Baylee. I love the way she spelled it, it makes the name look more feminine.
-- MirandaIrie  11/3/2010
I just fail to see the appeal of this name. Sure, it's not the worst name ever, but the mind boggles at the thought of a parent actually saying, "I adore the name Bailey! Let's give it to our baby!"

It seems to naturally come out as a whine of frustration, and for the less academically-inclined, "Bailey FAIL-ee" seems an obvious playground nickname.

Giving it to girls is just cruel. And spelling it as Baylee, Baileigh etc is plain moronic.
-- keepitreal  1/24/2011
I think its okay, I like the look of the 'Bailey' spelling, hate the others, but I do associated it with dogs. At one point in my life both my next door neighbors has a Golden Retriever named Bailey. (Not to mention a third one down the block.) But it doesn't have to be ruined for others because it was ruined for me.

I do think it has nice nickname potential Bay, Baya, or Baby (for when they're young) and Lee/Leigh which I've always loved.
-- Vesey  4/6/2011
I've always despised this name. It's not cute, and it doesn't even look good on paper. It's bad for a boy, and even worse for a girl. It makes a good pet name, though.

-- Anonymous User  2/24/2013
Sooo overly cutesy and trendy... Yet another name that's gone through the unfortunate stages of last name to male name to trendy female name :/ I like the sound of this name, I like it for a dog, but NOT a human! It sounds quite childish, but I guess it's not that childish compared too atrocious spellings such as Baylee and Bayley (the latter of which is technically not even a real name, but these days, no one cares about that, do they?) on a boy this has actually sort of grown on me, but he'd have to be really boyish and masculine to pull it off, otherwise the -ey sound at the end sounds to girly. But, I really wish people would remember: 1. That just because it ends in the -ey sound does not make it feminine, and 2. If it started off as a boy's name, it should stay a boy's name!
-- Anonymous User  2/26/2013
I named my son Bailey.. He suits his name, I don't find it a tacky name. & I prefer it on a boy - Biased perhaps. Nobody owns a name so if there are animals named Bailey then there's not much that can be done. I hope he likes his name when he is older, he seems to like it so far. & if he doesn't he always has his middle name to fall back on.
-- Bailibsmum  3/24/2013
Well, I wasn't going to say anything, but with all the hate from the other users, I have to say I like the name Bailey. One of the few B names I like it. I like it for both boys and girls, but prefer it on girls. But I like masculine names on girls anyway, so.
-- EkiAku  5/26/2013
It figures that Bailey is only commonly used for girls in America. Look at the stats - it's still a pretty popular boy's name and almost unheard of for females in England and Australia. But even in the US, it started out completely masculine and got turned over to the girls about the mid-80s. I wish all originally masculine names could stay masculine, but at least only America is into being tryndee by giving boy's names to girls. I hope to name a son this one day.
-- Anonymous User  6/7/2013
To me, Bailey is an awful name. Bailey sound like a bale of hay! It makes me picture a really annoying girl, the name sounds annoying. I just think of this really unintelligent girl... I hate this name. It's way too country for me.

On a girl, this is trendy-cutesy feminized surname crap. On a boy, it's traditional but nowhere near overused, and quite sexy ;)

Though quite popular in the UK for boys, the name Bailey is more common in the US as a feminine name. In 2012, it was only given to 121 baby boys here. I prefer it for a boy personally.

"Bailey" is the best spelling of the name, I think. But as for it being a good name, I do not like it. To me it seems like one of these little wussy names that they have now days. Lol, sorry but I don't like it. It's not horrible for a girl, but it is not a boy name to me.

This is my name, and I'm proud of it. Just breezing through these comments, I see all of the hate directed towards this name. Haven't you got anything better to do with your lives than that?

My first name is Bailey. I am a male and 15 and have been blessed to be very successful in my life so far. I have two jobs and outstanding grades. There is a lot of speculation and even more negativity about this name, but it is my name, and I share it with many others. It can be boys, girls, or a dogs name. It is different, yet sophisticated and powerful. There is beauty, strength, masculinity and femininity, and countless other meaning that the bearers of this wonderful name add to it. The same is with any name.
-- Bailey4  5/17/2014
I don't see what's bad about it. I know this may be biased, but c'mon? You can name a dog ANYTHING literally... And nowadays everyone's goal is to stay youthful... So what if you're named after an alcoholic beverage, as well? It just matters the name for a PERSON, nothing else. Who cares what it looks like? It mostly matters what It sounds like.

And who's to say the child can't just change their name when they're older if they don't like it?

If so many people didn't like it, I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be popular.
-- xXAstronomicPrideXx  6/1/2014
Bayleigh (different spelling, sorry) is a wonderful name for a girl! I think it's very refreshing and I can see it becoming a classic name. I don't know why everyone thinks it's a good name for a dog? To be honest, it's wasted on a dang dog. If you don't want to link the name to Baileys (yum) change the spelling :)
-- juice  8/25/2014
I named my daughter baileigh. Leigh is my name and I wanted to incorporate my name into hers. My name is constantly being misspelled or I am being mistaken for a boy. When I was younger it annoyed me but I got over it. Everyone has said they love her name, especially the way we spelled it. As far as it not being a good name for when she gets older, what about a kid named Bella, Maddison, or Zoey? Those girls will get older one day also, and those are popular trending names. One day there will be a bunch of old women named all sorts of different names.
-- Anonymous User  10/9/2014
As several people have correctly pointed out, Bailey is a dog's name. That's not my opinion, that's a numerical fact. In the United States, Bailey is the second most common name for male dogs and the ninth most common name for female dogs. For human girls, however, Bailey isn't in the top 100, having fallen from a mercifully short-lived spike, and for boys it's not in the top 1000. Bailey is therefore far more common for dogs than for people, so it's not surprising that most people view it as a fine name for a collie but a weird name for a child. (The same is true of many other surnames, such as Cooper, Tucker, and Hunter.) The various misspellings of Bailey that briefly became trendy as girls' names (Bayley, Baylee, Bayleigh) are associated with low socioeconomic status, so saddling a daughter with a misspelled dog's name is doubly cruel.
-- JamesK  11/11/2014
My 15 year old daughter is named Bailey Ann, and she loves her name. When we named her that, it wasn't very common for people or dogs, at least where I live. I didn't get it from the alcohol, or Party of Five. I have liked the name since WKRP in Cincinnati.

I cannot get over the harsh, judgmental comments people have posted. It is okay not to like the name, we all have our own opinions, but come on! Some are just plain mean. And people continued to post stuff like that after girls got on here and said that it was their name. How would you feel if someone sat there and said your parents were trashy for naming you that, it's the worst name they have ever heard, awful, moronic if spelled differently, or, my personal favorite, that if it is spelled differently, or misspelled as the person put it, it associates you with low socioeconomic status, which makes it doubly cruel. Seriously? The rest are mean, but that one is just plain incorrect. Research it. For spelling, there are many names that end in an "ey" sound and can actually be spelled different ways. Out of curiosity, just who is it we should consult on the proper way to spell a name? Is there some name guru who has all of the answers? Have you ever looked in a baby name book? They show several spellings and variations of names, but I guess the books are wrong too. Maybe someone should send them an email and let them know.

As for dog names, what about Charlie, Jack, or Jake? Those are all in the top ten list. Would you be so harsh on someone named that? Who decides what is a dog's name and not a person's? It's not like it's Spot or Rover or something like that. Maybe that name guru would know.

For people complaining it's a last name, what about Taylor or Dylan? Those are last names. Should people not name their children those either?

The fact that Bailey isn't in the top 100 girl names, or boys for that matter, doesn't prove it's a dog name, it proves it isn't a common one. It proves that not everyone and their brother are naming their child that, boy or girl. Would you prefer we all named our children something that everyone else is naming their child, like Emily, or Maddison? Or the ones that have come back around to be popular again, like Olivia or Sophia? Then your child can go through school being Emily H. Or Maddison S. To tell them apart because there are so many of them. Not everyone wants to be part of the herd.

My daughter isn't "cursed" with a horrible name, or a target for being picked on. I'm sure there are things people can think of that rhyme with it, for example, "Bailey Fail-ee," as someone pointed out. But what name can't be rhymed with something? How about some of you put your name on here and let people pick it apart, say mean things, and find a juvenile word, such as fail-ee, to rhyme it with.

All I am saying is, there are ways to express your opinion without being mean. I could care less if anyone likes the name. My daughter does and that is what's important. I would never have commented if there weren't so many harsh ones, especially after people named Bailey left one. Put yourself in someone else's position and think before you speak (or type).

No one here is being mean; we're presenting our candid opinions of names, which is the purpose of this website, and we're backing them up with examples or data. For example, no one who studies names would seriously dispute that misspelled names indicate low socioeconomic status. That's been demonstrated everywhere from studies in "Names: A Journal of Onomastics" to the analysis in the best-selling "Freakonomics." As the Financial Review's summary noted, "One of the key points of the name research compiled by Freakonomics was that misspelling of names is a clear indicator of lower socio-economic status--both of the parents and, later, the children." As for your question of why baby books include misspelled names, the answer is likewise an economic one: if you were a customer buying a baby book, would you choose the thicker one or the thinner one? Baby book writers have an obvious incentive to pad their pages, and it has nothing to do with factual scholarship or the well-being of children.

You've already named your daughter Bailey, so it's wonderful that she loves it. However, that also means you're not the primary audience for this website. The main goal of these comments is for future parents to learn what people candidly think about names so they can make informed choices *before* naming their children, not so they'll feel obligated to defend their naming choices after the fact. You may not be interested in knowing that most people associate Bailey with dogs or liquor, as the above comments show, but other parents may. Conversely, I was interested to read the above comments about Beetle Bailey and Barnum & Bailey, precisely because I found it interesting to learn about views and associations that differ from my own.

Last but not least, of course, no one here knows your daughter, so you can both rest assured that nothing here is an attack on her. And thank you for mentioning WKRP in Cincinnati; for readers who don't know, that comment was referencing Bailey Quarters, a TV character played by Jan Smithers.

My beagle's name is Bailey. If I hadn't rescued him from the pound, I probably would have chosen a more creative name because half the dogs I know are Baileys, but on the other hand it's fun to call him "Beagle Bailey" like "Beetle Bailey." To me personally, it seems like an exclusively male name.

I love, love, looooove this name! The sound, the look of it written down- everything! Even after reading the negative comments on here, I still adored it and went ahead and named my first born child- a boy, Bailey. Here in Australia it's much more widely recognized as a boys name. Gorgeous name, I love it so much. I really don't get the negative uproar about it? It's so weird lol :-)

Please do not do this to your child, boy or girl. Bailey is a surname. Use for a pet if you must, but do not use on a human. Can you imagine a 75-year old woman named Bailey? How about a CEO named Bailey Smith? No no no--so undignified.

Im a 25 year old male named Bailey, and very thankful for the name. At my age it sets me apart form the Tom, Dicks, and Harrys. I'm not ashamed or embarrassed by my name. I know when someone speaks to me or wants my attention. It does make a good dog, cat, boy, or girl name regardless of what people seem to think. I can sit in a room with hundreds of other people and when I hear Bailey I know it's me unlike when someone says Michael and 8 people come up. I do not find names as empowering or striking as others. It's my name and I don't dislike my parents for the name.

Bailey Name Meaning status name for a steward or official, Middle English bail(l)i (Old French baillis, from Late Latin baiulivus, an adjectival derivative of baiulus ‘attendant’, ‘carrier’ ‘porter’). Topographic name for someone who lived by the outer wall of a castle, Middle English bail(l)y, baile ‘outer courtyard of a castle’, from Old French bail(le) ‘enclosure’, a derivative of bailer ‘to enclose’, a word of unknown origin. This term became a place name in its own right, denoting a district beside a fortification or wall, as in the case of the Old Bailey in London, which formed part of the early medieval outer wall of the city. Habitational name from Bailey in Lancashire, named with Old English beg ‘berry’ + leah ‘woodland clearing’. Anglicized form of French Bailly.

I have heard the name pronounced both "bay-lee" and "bail-ee".

I have a friend named Bailey. We were discussing our names and she said her mother wanted to name her Ann, but her father thought the name Ann sounded too short, "like a dog's name". Thus, Bailey.

Of course, her parents didn't realize that in a few years, people would make "Bailey" a trendy dog name. She laughs about it, it hasn't condemned her to a life of poverty or anything. :-)

The alcohol connection never crossed my mind (until I read this page, that is) and I don't associate the name with trashiness.

Love this name, it's a very cool boy's name! To me, it's not a girls name at all. I love it because it's so different but not too different in a silly way. I know someone called Bailey and he was the one of the coolest people I ever met.

I think it's a case of the person makes the name, but with this name I think you are off to a very good start!

Y'all should be ashamed of yourselves! Saying rude and uncalled for things

I think it's a pretty name and yes, an 80 year old woman can be called Baylee! Oh look at that I just changed the way it's spelled and it still sounds good!

Ok my name is Bailey, I'm a female, and I absolutely love my name. I'm in high school making straight A's in all AP classes, going to Europe in the summer because of my athletic skills, and have a great job. I don't see why people think that Bailey is an unintelligent name or an ugly one. My name is very confident, sophisticated yet still fun. You can say the name is overused but most other country's do not even consider the possibility of it being a female name which makes it unique. And by the way my name might be Bailey but there is nothing country about me. It doesn't sound like a bay of hale at all. You should be proud of your name no matter what it is and I don't know why people with the name Bailey hate it so much. If you are on here bashing the name Bailey then yes, it is your opinion but maybe you should go look at all the negative comments people have put under your name before you put a negative comment under someone else's name.
