The name Kaylee, or any variations of Kaylee, means celebration. The name is from the Gaelic Ceilidh which is a social gathering.

It seems very flimsy as a name. When I meet a little Kaylee, I think that her parents might as well have named her "Cutie" or "Jellybean". I don't think it's a name that will be taken seriously on an adult.
-- amabel  6/9/2005
Haha... Jellybean.
-- trayc53  6/19/2005
I gave my daughter this name not realizing the popularity of it that year, lol. But I must say it fits her perfectly! I still adore her name, and when she is older, if she doesn't get taken seriously, she can always shorten it to Kay, lol.
-- Alene82  9/28/2005
This is my name so of course I like it! I have never thought of it as a "flimsy" name and everyone I've ever met has said that they like the name and ask how my parents came up with it. I am in my late 20's so there aren't too many people my age with the name. Oh, and by the way I have never not been taken seriously because my name is Kaylee!

Kaylee is the name of one of the 9 main characters in the TV show - "Firefly".
-- WCSAngel  2/21/2006
Kaylee is pretty but very young sounding, not an easy name to grow up with.
-- Anonymous User  4/29/2006
I agree, this name is far too cutesy/young sounding for an adult woman. Not a good name to grow up with in my opinion.
-- Anonymous User  7/16/2006
I really dislike this name. Probably one of my least favorites.
-- nelirosala  7/29/2006
Can also be spelt Caley - this is the only spelling I have seen used in NZ.
-- Anonymous User  9/23/2006
I never understood the popularity of this name.
-- Jasmine  3/5/2007
Well, I suppose I'm partial because it is my name, but I grew up in an area where no one else had it, and I've never thought of it as cutesy or anything of that nature. I guess it's all in what you do with it; I suppose people will make associations with the name based upon people they know with the name, and hopefully I do it justice. ;) Personally, I think it's a pretty and still rather unique name.
-- kayley  4/10/2007
There are a billion variations of this name, so if this seems too cutesy for you, pick a variation.
-- bibi66  6/2/2007
Kaylee is an okay name but it's beter spelled like Kaeleigh because it is more unique and prettier.
-- 80226_hottie  8/11/2007
Kaylee - Awful. Kaeleigh - Horrible.

Why won't this "name" die?
-- arrowhead909  8/25/2007
Name of the main character in the cartoon movie 'Quest for Camelot: The Magic Sword'.
-- ElizainEngland  10/30/2007
It makes me think of an Irish ceilí. Which is a dance.
-- Clodagh  1/9/2008
I don't see what all this talk about Kaylee being hard to grow up with is. I wouldn't think twice if I met an adult Kaylee. It doesn't seem that different to me from any other names with "ee" sounds at the end. Jenny, Marilee, Debbie, Allie, Kelly. All these names are, in my opinion, on par with Kaylee. Kaylee just doesn't get any respect because it's fairly new.
-- FuschiaNicole  2/17/2008
A blonde, blue-eyed, ditzy cheerleader comes into my mind when I hear this name.
-- jasmineenimsaj  2/23/2008
It's not so much that I don't like this name, I just don't like the spelling at all. I prefer Kayleigh, Kailey, or Ceilidh. This spelling just sort of annoys me a bit. No offense to anyone named Kaylee, it's just my personal opinion. As I said, I much prefer the other spellings.
-- Anonymous User  3/1/2008
I like this name, but not spelled this way. I generally don't like names with an ee (Rylee, Kylee, Maree) on the end other than Lee in it's original form. The issue with this name is there are so many variants, there is not one that you would automatically assume that it is spelled a particular way. For example, Courtenay is a variant of Courtney, but unless someone tells you, you most likely would assume there name is Courtney. I like the spelling Kaylie, Kailey, and Kayleigh better. Oddly, even though this is the most popular spelling I've never heard of anyone with this name, only Kayleigh.
-- bunnygirl  3/8/2008
Sounds like a very forgettable name. It's dull, without being classic, and will not last through their lives as a pretty name. So much better things to name your kids than Kaylee.
-- jolidanstitre  4/30/2008
I like my name, and if people don't take me seriously, it's because of how I act, not my name. There's a lot of girls in my town with my name and spelled the same, Kaylee. I live in a very small town, so it is pretty amazing how people can say 'no one's going to take them seriously' when that would be saying "everyone in the United States/other country named [insert name here] is going to fail because people won't take them seriously because they aren't named right". I think it's a little judgemental.

By the way, I happen to think my name IS unique, because my parents put their middle names together, they didn't get it out of book, like the rest of my siblings. :) Don't judge people on their names.
-- kaylee-5  6/5/2008
I can't see an 80 year old with this name.
-- snickerdoodle  7/26/2008
I think it is a pretty name. I don't think it is a flimsy name. I love it. I like cutesy names. I wouldn't mind naming my daughter this.
-- lol_cool  8/9/2008
I'm somewhat forced to be partial with Kaylee, as I have lived with it for eleven years, since birth. But it's no where near my favorite. I would have much rather been 'Allison', or possibly even 'Samantha' or 'Leah', but Kaylee is no what near like me.

I see that name as a little girly-girl who always wears pink dresses and big pink bows. That is not me at all. Kaylee has almost no nicknames but Kay and (and in my case, because of my favorite video game) K. K Slider. Sorry. Had to rant.
-- KohakuRiver  8/14/2008
I don't like these trendy child names. I mean what happens when your 50 and your name is Cayley? Seriously it's a little kid name. There's so many ways to spell this name it's annoying.

Kaylee
Kailee
Kayley
Kayleigh
Kaylie
Caylee
Cayley
Cayleigh
etc.

One of the main characters in the Firefly series/Serenity movie is Kaylee Frye.
-- CanadianChibi  2/12/2009
If you're going to name your child this, you may as well name them something like "Tootsie" or "Coochie".
-- ICEyun  2/24/2009
Arabic Kalilah (Kay lee lah).
-- Singz4J  4/7/2009
This name makes me think of céilí, which is an Irish dance (though the word really means "partners" in Irish). I like céilí, but not enough to name my daughter after them. But outside of Ireland, this could work fine as a girl's name, as it does sound cute and feminine. I just can't get over the spelling. No offence intended, but Kaylee looks very Americanised. Please spell it Céilí, as it is really an Irish word. (Céilí is pronounced exactly the same as Kaylee.) It's not a name that I would use (as it's a dance), but Céilí does sound very sweet and upbeat.
-- Ailis  7/8/2009
I really love this name for a girl or woman. (: When the female is younger it sounds very cute. And when they are older it can sound mature too, like Kelly or Carly. They could always go by Kay if they felt it wasn't "mature" enough. My name is Kaylee, but I spell it Cailee. I think it's very unique and I like it. (:
-- cailee  7/8/2009
Kaylee is very babyish. I don't think it looks good on anyone past the age of five. It also sounds rather ditzy.
-- bananarama  8/5/2009
Yuck. I hate these 'trendy, modern' kid names people are using, especially Kaylee, which looks strange on anyone past the age of 10.
-- -Julia-  8/20/2009
One of those childish Kay- names which are so popular now. Kaylee in particular seems to be the most childish-sounding of them. I can't picture it or take it seriously on anyone past the age of four. Do today's parents sincerely not care that what sounds cute on their baby or small child will sound babyish and unprofessional on a grown woman, or do they not think their child will age?
-- Anyechka  9/1/2009
It's tacky, meaningless (don't even bother saying 'it means ______ to me', because I could say 'spoofax' means 'beautiful gazelle' to me but would anybody else ever care or take me seriously?), and NOT unique -- no legitimate name is -- because a zillion people are named this.
-- greta-elisif  10/10/2009
Childish, idiotic name. The parents who give their kids this name seem to be actual nutjobs too, every time I heard of a parent murdering their daughter the name seems to be Cay/haylee. Maybe it's just because it's currently popular, but...
-- Aureliano  2/24/2010
No, I do not like this. Or it's other forms that can not be misspellings because there is no name to misspell. I agree that it's very childish. It's funny though that such a weird name has become so unoriginal. Funny and sad.
-- Anonymous User  4/16/2010
If you like this, I'd advise Kayleigh, as this is the most common spelling so she won't have to deal with that too much. It looks prettier like that anyway.
-- ListenToAsuka  5/14/2010
This is my name. I love it. I'm 19 years old, and not once have I ever thought my name was too childish. I think it suits me well. I also love the fact that there aren't many people my age with the name. I think it's a fun, bubbly, beautiful name.
-- Kaylee_Lynn  5/21/2010
It's cute, but I can't picture it on anyone past 17. Maybe it's just me though...
-- Chrila96  9/2/2010
Kaywinnit Lee 'Kaylee' Frye of tv series Firefly.
-- Anonymous User  10/15/2010
My name is Caylee, and I love my name. I'm 20 years old and the only problem I've ever had with my name is that no one ever spells it right. I'm never not taken seriously because of it, and I'm always being told how pretty and unique the spelling is.
-- Caylee Ann  11/24/2010
Well I named my second daughter Kayley. I like the name and I don't think people won't take her serious because of her name! I came up with the name and spelling because her father's name is Kevin and my name is Ashley so Kay for Kevin & Ley For ashLEY! I think it's cute!
-- kayleysmom  12/13/2010
There's too many variations. I've only seen it spelled Kaleigh, no Kaylees or Kaileys. I also have seen Ceili, which I prefer as it's not some tryndee name.
-- Dawson  3/6/2011
Okay this may be biased because my name is Kaylee (same spelling) but...

1. This is the easiest Kaylee to spell as it is just Kay and Lee
2. It is not cutsey... the name does not dictate the person. The persons personality dictates what others think of the name.
3. I have a 93% average. Therefore, when people think of me they think of a smart person and an individual. Don't judge the name... judge the person!
-- monkeygirl_343  3/13/2011
I love this name although I get called Hailee and there is a girl at my church whose name is Kaylee and it's really really confusing. Every time I heard a girl say it I would look up and look around it was so embarrassing.
-- KandMManga  6/22/2011
I like how the only people that seem to like this name are people with the name themselves and mothers who can't seem to think for themselves when it comes to names. Haha yeah exactly.
-- Anonymous User  7/22/2011
I've never liked this name to start with, and I've despised it even more after hearing about the Casey Anthony trial nonstop. Nothing against Caylee Anthony or anyone with similar names, but this name sounds very childish. It may sound cute on a toddler, but it doesn't sound appropriate on an older adult. And spelling it differently doesn't help either.
-- Anonymous User  8/14/2011
Terrible, tacky, overused name. However, Kaylee Frye from Firefly was such an awesome character I can't bring myself to hate it too much. Would never use it though.
-- Anonymous User  8/19/2011
I'll never for the life of me figure out why it's so popular. It's so infantile and dull and overly kr8tyvv. It's... ugh! Choose another name, please!
-- Black_X  10/7/2011
Personally I love this name, it's simple, sweet and common enough that everyone can pronounce it. The variant spellings make it difficult, but no more so than Christine or Katherine.

Anyone that says they can't see it on a person over such and such an age- Guess What? It's a popular name, in 40 years you're going to see all the Kaylee's grown up and in the professional world where they will be taken seriously and they will be parents and grandparents. You're going to have to get used to it sooner or later.
-- Cuss10  2/15/2012
My name is Kaylee and from research I have learned that Kaylee means 'Beloved' in Arabic, 'Pure' and 'Keeper of the keys' in English, 'Like God' in Hebrew, and 'slender' or 'pasture' in Jamaican. There are so many meanings.
;)
-- Anonymous User  9/7/2012
Even though my name is Kaylee, I would much rather be called something with life or character, something exotic, like Arya (female), or Alanna, or Griffin (female), or Alianne. Kaylee is a lifeless name. Even Ella or Ellie (my parents' two almost-choices) would have been better. At least they sound like a person and not two people or an object. And I am sick and tired of getting mixed up with my classmate Kayla, or being called Haylee or Kayla or Baylee.
-- Anonymous User  9/7/2012
When I hear "Kaylee" I think of a shallow, vapid person, or a little girl. Which I'm not.(My name is Kaylee.) And I can't count how many times people think I said Kylee or Hayley, or Kayla because I have a soft voice.
-- Anonymous User  10/29/2012
One of my least favorite names ever. Not even gonna go into why I don't like it, as many people have already stated most of the reasons. Let me just say this: if it wasn't a name fifty years ago, it shouldn't be one now! I mean, doesn't that tell you something?! God, this name is so hopelessly childish and modern.
-- Anonymous User  2/4/2013
The name Kaylee annoys me. There doesn't seem to be a right way to spell it, for one thing, and it sounds insubstantial and not very pleasant for another.
-- thesnowwhiterose  4/13/2013
Other spellings Kaleigh, Kayli

They have the same pronunciation, are of Irish or Scottish origin and mean beautiful.

This name is also a variation of Kelilah
Of Hebrew and Arabic origin, with the same meaning of beautiful.
-- nedaalsaadi85  3/30/2014
I may be biased because it's my name (well the original spelling of it) but my name is Ceilidh I'm 15 and I've never been worried about my name being too young for me until now. I was called Ceilidh because my parents are Christians and they thought I was going to be a boy so they were going to call me Caleb, (it works because my older brother's called Joshua- get it Joshua and Caleb?) but then I was a girl and they decided to call me Ceilidh. I loved growing up with my name because it made me unique, but at the same time everybody can pronounce it (other than the occasional sea-lid-huh or Kelly) the only annoying thing is I can never find it in souvenir shops. :(
-- Ceilidh  6/29/2014
Urgh, I despise this name. It doesn't suit my taste. When I compare this to Hayley (which is a name I hate also), I can admit that out of the two, Hayley is nicer.
-- LoveHeartKawaii  7/2/2014
I don't think Kaylee is TOO bad of a name, but any name ending in -ee instantly looks childish to me. However, spelled Kailey, looks a tad bit more mature and not too different from Hailey. I can't believe this name is popular!
-- GryffinDorothyBeth  7/31/2014
My name is Kaylee and I hate it. I have always hated it. I agree with everyone who's saying that it is a flimsy name. The people that are saying people could just call us Kay, I hate when people call me that because it sounds like someone is trying to end a conversion. I also hate the nickname Lee. No one says it and it also sounds pansy-like. In my opinion don't name your child this name. Remember that this is my name so this is coming from someone who absolutely hates her name. When I'm older I'm planning on changing it legally.
-- k.99  8/23/2014
This name seemed really young to me even before the Caylee Anthony case, and since then it REALLY seems like a name exclusively for little kids. Obviously there are going to be adults named Kaylee (spelled however) someday, but it's hard to imagine "Professor Kaylee Smith, winner of the Nobel Prize" or "Dr. Caylee Jones, world-renowned heart surgeon." The seemingly endless spellings of this name complicate it way too much.
