User comments for Kayleigh (Famous Bearer Only)

80's group Marillion had a hit in 1985 with a song called 'Kayleigh'.

This spelling is found in the Marillion song 'Kayleigh'. I found out something of the origin of the song title in a copy of Classic Rock magazine's Top 100 Rock albums (April 2006) It was an interview with the lead singer, he wrote the song about a break up with his then girlfriend and he just combined her first and last names to create the song title Kay & Leigh. Perhaps this spelling is where it originated, the song was written around 1985 I think. after that it seems it became very popular to give your name that child. Hope this helps, Andy.
