I love this name, really like the way it sounds and the origins of it. I would use this spelling over the other, though I'm not usually one to like different spellings.

A Gothic term sometimes given to the first born of an elder. Means: Child Of Darkness.

I really like this name. I like the meaning, and I would definitely pick this spelling over Malachi. Something about the "C-h-i" spelling just seems evil to me.

I'm pretty sure many people choose this spelling because they like the name Malachi, but doubt many people can spell it, but it just sort of seems like religious nuts who have heard plenty of sermons but never actually read the Bible to the extent of having seen this name on paper would choose, as they don't actually know the original spelling, and, come to think of it, aren't very good spellers in general. The name is very Biblical, so I have my ideas about people who use names like this.

I dislike this misspelling of the traditional Malachi. And like somebody else said, I think that this spelling might be simpler for illiterate people to use. I also think that having "kai" at the end might appeal to the trendee crowd as it is getting very popular it seems.

To me, this spelling looks feminized, but perhaps this is because I think of Kai as a feminine name. Definitely prefer Malachi.
