This name has been in my family for three generations. I still think it's a pretty with an impression of someone who's kind-hearted, even if it is a simple one-syllable name.

I like the name Kay. I think it's pretty and simple. It's also my sister's middle name, and her first name is Laura. My parents call her Laura Kay a lot. Also it can be a nickname for any name that starts with Kay. (ex. Kayleigh)

Kay is not only an nickname for Kayla, Kayleigh, etc. It is also the reason such names exist according to a book I read once.

A character of Mary McCarthy's novel "The Group" is named Kay.

I love Kay either as a stand-alone or a nickname for Kaya. I also think it's weirdly handsome on a guy.

Kay Lástima (née Pasa), Spanish philosopher. Said "ah!," said "ah!" (Ouch!)

This is sort of friendly and it's better for a girl named Katherine to be Kay than one of a thousand Kates.

My middle name is Kay. It was my mother's middle name, and I've never really liked it. It's a bit too plain for my tastes, but, I'm stuck with it. When I tell someone my middle name, they always think it's an initial and I don't really have a middle name. That's why I don't like it.

I personally think Kay is an awesome name, whether it's a nickname, first name or middle name.

I can't see this as a given name. It's way too short and boring.

A famous Kay was American actress Kay Francis (1905-1968), who was one of the most popular actresses during the earlier Thirties and appeared in films like "Trouble in Paradise".

I love the way this name looks: Kay. It just looks cheerful written out. It is sweet and spunky, yet old-fashioned. I think it is nice as a nickname or a given name.

I know a lot of people who have Kay as their middle name. Savannah Kay, Amber Kay, Tracey Kay...

The name Kay was given to 51 baby girls born in the US in 2012.

Can be a bit of a filler, and would often be assumed as just the initial, rather than the actual name.
Hushpuppy  8/27/2014
I agree with Hushpupy, both Lee and Kay could be used as good filler middle names if you can't come up with any.

Kay Hanley, a singer. She sings "Follow Me" which is the theme of Team Rose in Sonic Heroes. She has also sung the main theme song for My Friends Tigger & Pooh.

My name is Kay. When I was young I wanted a fancier name. Now I love my name. It is simple, straightforward, feminine, and just a bit sweet. Additionally there is not a nickname for it. As an adult this is an advantage as I am not called something childish and little girly as so many women are.

I think this name sounds like a name someone would use in the past and not the modern days. I still think it sounds cute for a dog but not as good for a person. Also, I think this name is feminine and not masculine. Who would have the thought to make it masculine?

Very short, simple, straight forward name. Makes for a decent middle name.
It's my middle name and to be quite frank, I've never cared for it. To me, it's rather boring and plain. I feel bad because it's also my mom's middle name and I see that there are a lot of people who have it and like it... So long as you like and are happy with it, no one else's opinion matters.
As for my mom, maybe if I start spelling it with an "e" as in "Kaye" I can reconcile my feelings about it a little. Still sounds the same, but I think it looks a tad better. (Not unlike the "e" in "Anne" from Anne of Green Gables I guess).

The name Kay was given to 43 girls born in the US in 2015.

My middle name is Kay and my grandmother also has it for her middle name. I hate when I tell people my middle name is Kay and they say "Wait, so it starts with a K?" or "K as in the letter?".
