Comments for KILEY:

My name is Kiley. I've had it for 50 years. It is the most popular name in my town. I believe the people I went to school with started the popularity of this name. If you look at the chart, it started to become popular in the 80's just when my classmates were becoming parents. I am not kidding you when I say there are hundreds of Kiley's in this town, all spelled different. Some time it makes me feel complimented and other times robbed of my name. Just wanted to get that off my chest.

This name comes from two Irish surnames: "Ó Cadhla" ("KAH-la") ("Descendant of the Graceful one") and "Ó Chaollaidhe" ("KAYL/KEEL-ee-ya") ("Descendant of the Thin one"). Interestingly, the latter comes from the masculine personal name "Caolach" (KAYL/KEEL-akh) ("Thin one"), sounding not unlike "Kayla". Frankly, I think that "Kiley" is a tired, trendy name, a mangling of the original names.

No offense but Kiley to me sounds more like KEE-ley and I've made the mistake of calling a girl with this name Keely. I would most definitely not use Kiley.

My little girl's name is Kiley Brooke. In the beginning I wanted to name my daughter Riley. My father who was then dying of cancer liked the name Kylie. I decided that I would drop the "R" in Riley and add a "K" giving me the spelling I liked and name he liked, in the end giving him the opportunity to name the granddaughter he would never see. I think that Kiley is a very cute and feminine name.

This can also be a variant of Keely.

I think Kylie is the best spelling. If I heard this name, that's how I'd write it on paper. But maybe that's just me.

An Irish surname (derived from Kiely) meaning "good looking".

This name is extremely modern, cutesy, and childish, but Kiley is the most dignified and bearable version of the name by far.

I know a guy named Kiley. It's pretty bad... In my opinion, his parents should've just gone with Kyle. At least that name has some dignity to it.
