Comments for the name Keely


Comments for KEELY:

The name Keely means Beautiful and Graceful. It is a modern coinage based on the Irish names 'Caoilfhionn' and 'Cadhla'. My name is Keely and I have NEVER heard it associated with the name Kayley, which is derived from the word 'Ó Caollaidhe'.

Keely is a cute name, I like it a lot, but I can´t really decide if I prefer Keely or Keeley. I think Keely, though.

This is a pretty name and I prefer this spelling over the spelling Keeley.

I just love the name Keely, I don't hear it that often, it is so pretty. I thought twin girls named Keely and Keltie would be nice.

This is my name and I love it, though it often is mispronounced as 'Kelly' which can be annoying. There is also a host of the TV show Unsolved Mysteries named Keely Shea Smith.

Keely Teslow is a character on Disney channel's Phil of the Future. She is Phil's best friend and an aspiring news reporter. She is also the only person who knows Phil and his family are from the future.

This name, along with its various spellings, sounds really girly and tacky to me. I don't think it sounds good on anyone past the age of 16.

Kiely Williams (most famously known for "Aqua" on the Disney Channel's "The Cheetah Girls") spells her name with an I instead of the first E. She is also from the girl-group 3LW which had the hit "No More (Baby I'ma Do Right)" back in 2002.

I have difficulty taking this name seriously. To be honest, I think "Keely" sounds ditzy and far too feminine. It might be a cute name for a toddler, but the name falls to shambles in adulthood. Could you imagine any professional adult named Keely? I know I can't.

I know it's only 2 syllables long, but it's really hard to pronounce for me. I don't really care for it.

I think it sounds fun and feminine, I always preferred it over Kiley or Caley, but all the spellings look so tacky, maybe it's better suited as a nickname.

It's a pretty name, but my favorite spelling of it is K-E-E-L-I.

Too common. Reminds me of "Kill-y".

What a ridiculous name. I knew a dog named Keely once, which is acceptable. But for a person?! This trend of giving people dog names has gone too far.

My friend's name is pronounced as 'Keely' but she spells it 'kiely' which personally, I prefer. It is a very unigue way of spelling it.

The name Keely was given to 168 baby girls in the US in 2012.

I'll admit that it's cute, but not for a person. It's better than Kaylee, at least. But that isn't saying much.

So yea, it's comments like the ones above that made me cringe when hearing someone try to pronounce my name for the first time as a kid. Imagine how that is for a child, hearing people trip over it then the other kids laugh? Yea, that was awesome. But luckily I grew up to not be an inconsiderate asshole and have since learned that my name is better than any Ashley, Brittany or Kimberly, and it fits me.

I knew a boy with this name. Always assumed it was male...
