Name is also Kaleigh. I pronounce it "KAY-lee" but I also get the usual, "CALL-ie" "CU-lee" most times at the popular coffee shops they just give up and call me whatever they like. I love my name though-- a few Irish folks I met got it right the first time they saw it on my name badge.

My name is Kaleigh and I pronounce it "KAY-lee" and everyone says it another way. Sometimes "clay" (like modelling clay) or "collie" (like the dog or Indian goddess) or "CAH-lee." I have yet to meet someone with the same spelling and pronunciation.

My little sister's name is Kaleigh, and she pronounces it "Kay-lee". I like both of the spellings of this name. I think it's pretty and not very overused, however in her class she's known as "Kaleigh B." which is pretty annoying. Other than that I like the name.

I prefer the traditional spelling, but this is still very nice.

Everyone I know pronounces it Call-ee not KAY-lee.

It's just a pretentious spelling of a dull, unimaginative, and a far too girly and infantile name.

When we researched this name for our daughter the Kaylee phase had not hit the baby name books. Kaleigh was in the books at that time as Sanskrit in origin, meaning "energy", and it is pronounced Ku-lee.

I named my daughter Kaleigh in 1969 thinking I had devised this name on my own. She has yet to meet a "Kaleigh" older than her. There has been only one other Kaleigh about her age that we know of, a Canadian, and that Kaleigh was a male. I still like to think I originated this name. Obviously, it has become a popular name.

Kaleigh also means a sort of party. When I went to Prince Edward Island I saw a sign that said my name and I realised underneath it said it was a type of party (not a party for Kaleigh).
