I like this spelling much better than Kylee or any other spellings.

I love my name (Kylie). I don't like when it's spelled Kiley for some reason though.
-- KylieXxX  10/25/2005
Kylie Flinker played Lucy on Neighbours many years ago.
-- lindamaree  3/9/2006
Both spellings are nice but I seem to lean towards the spelling Kylee. But then again, it is easy to miss an "e" and then it looks like Kyle which is definitely a boys name.

This is my step daughter's name. My husband chose to spell it Kylee to honor his middle name Lee. The name seems very "forever little girl" but I do like the nickname Ky.

Also have seen Kylia which I believe is from this name.

Kylie is my sister's name. It's Celtic, Gaelic, most offten. I agree, Kylie is a much better spelling than Kiley, no offense to anyone with the spelling. My next favorite would be Kylee.

I have also seen my sister's name spelled Kyleigh.

My friend's little sister's name is Kylie. I like the combination Kylie Grace, it's so pretty!

Dated, tired, bogan-esque and downmarket choice.
-- Anonymous User  9/30/2006
This name only fits for a certain age, and how will a person be taken seriously when s/he grows up? This name is so trendy that it sickens me; it's tired, blatently trendy, and impractical, and by impractical that I mean that it does not exactly age gracefully. And it's so ironic that the name comes from the one of these Irish surnames: "Ó Cadhla" (KAH-la) or "Ó Chaollaidhe" (KAYL/KEEL-ee-ya), both names meaning "graceful".

I wonder why there is no popularity for Kylie in the Australian records. It's popular in Austalia and in New Zealand.

I prefer this name to a young kid rather than to an 80-year old.
-- CharlieRob  5/10/2007
I think it is a very strong name that would suit a female of any age.
-- sabrinafaye  8/5/2007
Dumb, dumb, dumb name.
-- johann14  9/25/2007
This name, so stupid, so cutesy, taking a boy's name and adding the "ee" sound to the end.
-- arrowhead909  9/28/2007
It's a wonderful name and it's Aussie. :)
-- Koolgal  12/30/2007
I think Kylie is a cute name, but only a short period of time. When he/she gets older, it's not going to fit.
-- jasmineenimsaj  1/14/2008
Trash. I can't believe it's so popular in the US and Canada. It's as dated as hell in Australia and New Zealand.

My youngest daughter's name is Kylie. I usually go for old-fashioned names, or biblical names, even though my family isn't particularly religious, but for some reason "Kylie" just sticks in my head. I think it's both beautiful and cute, and I don't think she'll have any more of a problem growing up with her name than the Traci's and Tiffani's of the 80's and 90's.

Kylie is a dated, trashy and silly name.
-- Anonymous User  6/14/2008
I love this name, it's beautiful. My best friend's name is Kylie, and though yes it does seem to be a younger person name, I think it will fit her even when she gets older. All I really know about it is that its origin is old Irish, and it's not just taking the name Kyle and adding an 'ie' at the end. It's a much older name than people think.
-- Fluffy_Thewerewolf.  6/30/2008
My friend named her daughter this. She was going to name her Riley, but her husband prefered Kylie. I'm glad she named her Kylie. I actually like the name Kylie better than Riley.

I have seen some reviewers saying the name Kylie is trash. But I actually think it's cute and "catchy." And the Aboriginal meaning is nice, which is "a boomerang." A boomerang will always come back to you. I think that meaning is powerful.
-- Coffeebean  9/26/2008
One of my "guilty pleasure" names. I love Kylie, but I'd never use it 'cause by the time I do start having kids, there'll be a bunch of teenage Kylie / Rylee / Briley's.
-- WilderThanBridget  10/25/2008
If you are in Australia or New Zealand, the name IS generally viewed as dated and trashy. I grew up with lots of Kylies and Kylees. It's flaky and ugly and I forget it's so trendy in the US right now. It's done its dash in Aus/NZ unless you are into to those bogan type names. ;)
-- Anonymous User  11/25/2008
The name is actually from the Celtic/Gaelic origin, meaning "Beautiful". It is the feminine form of Kyle, which means "Handsome".
-- Anonymous User  1/4/2009
I like the name Kyle but I cannot stand Kylie. This is one of the worst names you can give someone, it is so childish. Think your daughter is going to appreciate this name when she is older? If this were my name I would legally change it and use a nickname in the meantime.
-- Anonymous User  2/26/2009
This is one of my favorite names in the whole world! This name has a great meaning (not that that makes a difference) and also has a nice ring to it.
-- Emiita06  3/14/2009
My name is Kylie and I have never particularly liked it. I think it is dated in Australia.
-- Anonymous User  7/8/2009
Although this name is cute for a little girl or a teenager, I could not picture it on an adult or elderly person, so I would never use this name. I also think it sounds like a nickname and not a full, formal name.
-- becca_marciano  10/3/2009
My name is Kylie and I love my name! I much prefer this spelling over Kylee, Kiley, or Kyleigh. I like the nickname Ky too, that's what my friends call me. Plus, it has a cool meaning, "boomerang," it's different and cute.

But there is one thing I don't like about my name now that I think of it- I hate it when people don't see the "i" in my name and call me Kyle. It is so irritating! You would be surprised at how often people call me Kyle, it's crazy!
-- KyDaBomb  1/6/2010
While Kylie isn't the best of names, I think it sounds rather cute (with this spelling ONLY) - not at all like Kaylee. And it is not a "bogan" name. Kylie Minogue is far from that stereotype.
-- bananarama  6/15/2010
This name is so cutesy and will not age well at all.
-- Chrila96  10/13/2010
This has been considered the very epitome of bogan in Australia since it was chosen for the name of the character Kylie Mole on the late 80s sketch series "The Comedy Company". In fact, it was Kylie Mole's use of the word "bogan" which brought it into common use.

Kylie Mole was a lower-class, gum-chewing befreckled schoolgirl with an attitude problem played by comedienne Mary Anne Fahey.

So enduringly iconic has been her image that the name is now considered dated, trashy, and deeply embarrassing.

Kylie Jenner is a famous bearer, daughter of Kris and Bruce Jenner. Sister of Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian. Kylie has appeared in many Keeping Up with the Kardashian's episodes.

This is my name. I hated it growing up, because people would pronounce it "Kayleigh" or "Kyle". My husband's name is Kyle so it's definitely weird when someone calls me that now. It also sounds babyish. I'd rather have an elegant name. It's too short to have a nickname that sticks. I hope this name dies out, along with all the Kayleighs, and Kynlees and whatnot.

Australian actress Kylie Travis is a famous bearer.
-- Anonymous User  8/5/2012
It can also mean Beautiful.
-- Anonymous User  8/31/2012
It's kind of ditzy-sounding, like the name of a cheerleader. I noticed that this name is often used on Australian female characters in foreign TV shows, when in fact it's not even that popular; I've only met one Kylie, and even then she was 30. It's probably because of Kylie Minogue, who I'm not a fan of.
-- zaki95  9/15/2012
I have read that the name Kylie is Celtic, and means "lovely Girl", I think it sounds beautiful, the perfect name for a beautiful, caring girl.
-- cheernurse  10/2/2012
Well, my name is KILEY. I'm in my late 20's, a tomboy, not very graceful, and I believe my name suits me just fine. With great power, comes great responsibility ;)
-- Shadowhuntr98  10/23/2012
Most common names I dislike, but Kylie is a different story. It's feminine without being to girly, classy and sweet. It doesn't suit older people, but Kylie is one of those short names that have nicknames. I love the name!
-- Melys11  1/1/2013
My aunt is named this. Well, she's getting on for 30 (she's much younger than my parents), and need to say she's not "trashy" one bit. She was a good student at school, graduated from university and has a good well-paid job. Yes, Kylie is a cutesy name, but it's definitely not a name that makes me think of "trashy" people.
-- Skylar_Arianna  6/7/2013
I don't believe it ages very well. Reminds me of Kayley or Miley.
-- AppleM32  1/9/2014
I am a 16 year old Australian girl with the name Kylie (middle name Anne) and I do like the name Kylie. It's of Australian/Aboriginal origin with the meaning being 'boomerang' and boomerang's always come back. I know of only 2 other Kylie's in my age group. I am often nick named 'Kye' and some people do miss the 'i' and call me Kyle' which is annoying. I find nothing wrong with my name, and to the people saying it's bogan and trashy, shoosh. You wouldn't like people calling something your mother gave you 'trashy' or 'bogan', so jog on now. :)))
