A variant of Casey could be spelled "Cayce".

A nice, non-horrifying, feminine form would be Kaci. I also like Casie, or Kacy.

Personaly, I think that the name Casey is one of the cutest names there is! Some people think that it should be spelled different, but in my eyes this is the best way. Even when the Casey has grown up, this name will still be appropriate!
LILKC_09  9/4/2005
You can spell it Casie, Cassy and Cassy. It is short for Charis. A beautiful name if I may say so myself.
charis  10/27/2005
Another spelling of this name is Casi. This is used for the feminine gender.

I have always felt that Casey was a bit feminine for a boy even though it has been used more for boys. Not a bad name though.

One of my exes was named Casey, but he spelled it KC. I thought that was rather cheesy, since the original name is great to begin with, and the letters didn't even stand for anything.

I have always liked the name Casey and do prefer it for a girl. I also like the spelling Kacey but I would use the spelling Casey for ease of spelling.
― Anonymous User  6/13/2006
Can also be spelled Casy. Celtic origin, not English. I have also heard it was a shortened form of Acacia.

My best friend's name is Kacie. It can also be spelled Kaci, Casi, Kayce, Cayce, Casea, Kasea, Kaycee, Caysee, Caysea, Kaysea. There are about 50 someodd ways to spell it, we actually did one time. (:

"Casey at Bat" and Casey's General Stores bear this name.

I think that this name sounds too feminine for a boy, yet too masculine for a girl. That said, it is a rather cute name.

I really really like this name! It is great for both male and female.
amber monkey  8/20/2006
I have always liked this name but still can't decide on boy or girl, I kind of lean towards a girl name.

My distant cousin's name is Kaci (born in 1990). She is named for her Aunt Kay (Ka) and her grandmother Cindy (ci). I was very interested to learn that one!
Pheadirean  11/2/2006
Though I have a female cousin who bears the name Casey I prefer it for male.
The cutesy spellings like Kaci, Kacie, etc. are all horrible versions of the name.
Missy  11/15/2006
Casey is one of my favourite names, but I find it ruined by all of the kreatyve spellings! Maybe it's just me, but I hate when people think that it's /different/ to spell their name Kaci, or Casea. It's the same name, and it's not unique at all!
bobcat_explorer  12/30/2006
It seems more like a boy name to me than a girl name.

I think the NASCAR driver Casey Kaine spells his name this way, but I'm not sure since there are so many ways to spell Casey.
― Anonymous User  8/31/2007
I love this name! My friend's name is Casey and he is a boy. And since I am a girl, and I say Casey's my friend, people usually think Casey's a girl. I really don't like this name at all for a girl's name. It is a beautiful boy's name, though! :D
libbygirl  1/19/2008
I know several Caseys, and I prefer it for a girl rather than a boy. I also like this spelling of Casey rather than 'Kasey' or 'Kacey', which I have seen a few times.
Miss-Rory  2/23/2008
Repeatedly the name Casey is referenced as a surname that loosely means "courage". The family crest for this name involves the image of a lion or three lions, furthering the perception of strength in the meaning of this name.
onemommy  4/9/2008
My name is Casey and people don't seem to know how to spell it or say it, they always ask how to spell it and I often get called Cassie.
anon2210  4/14/2008
This name is rubbish on men and women alike, so I wouldn't name my child this. On little boys, it sounds okay. On men, it sounds like the name of a guy who remains on the level of an annoying, sexist, immature frat boy way until his forties. On women, it sounds absolutely ridiculous. The name is too youthful, and too masculine for women.
slight night shiver  4/20/2008
My name is Casey and I am female. I didn't used to like my name being it was very uncommon and those who had it were boys. Now, in my late 20's, I love my name because it is still uncommon and a little bit different. And, I just think it is a cute name. And, most of all, I love that I spell it, in it's original form, CASEY.
harlow.moon  4/28/2008
I've always liked Kaci for a girl, and Casey for a boy (call him either Casey or Case). I think I've always leaned more towards Casey for a boy since I first saw Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as a little girl, and developed my first ever "crush" on Casey Jones!
erb816  6/26/2008
I prefer Casey/Case as a boy's proper name. I just love that name!

Definitely prefer it as a boy name. It's so sweet. The only girl I know of who is named Casey is the character that Spencer Grammar plays on "Greek."
meggsxx3  4/20/2009
I can't say I love the feminine version of Casey as much as I like the male version of Casey. ( I'm sorry, I've just met a lot of not-so-nice girls named Casey. It's left a bad taste in my mouth.) There's just a mouth-watering image I imagine when I think of a guy named Casey.
EldestMuse  4/22/2009
The history of the name comes from Israel. It means it is DAWN! Also it is Hebrew, I should know Casey is my name. Also Casey also could be called Ziva in Hebrew.

My kitten's name is Casey. He's the sweetest, cutest kitty ever! I have always liked this name, and it's adorable on anyone, boy, girl, cat, dog, etc! I also find it cool that the name is said to mean courage and is associated with lions, and lions are cats!
― Anonymous User  4/23/2010
One of the few names that is still pretty much split equally between genders. The only other name I can think of is Riley, perhaps Taylor. I admit I prefer it slightly more for a boy, but a girl is fine too. I do like Kasey, or Kacie for a girl, but you would safer just spelling it the original way.
Jamesina  6/16/2010
Personally, I think Casey on a girl is incredibly chavvy. It's ghastly on a girl, really, it is. Can you imagine a business woman named Casey? No, you can't, because it doesn't work on a grown woman.

Casey on a male is handsome. You can imagine a grown man named Casey, it works well on a man and a young boy.

I think it's cute for either sex. I prefer it on a guy, though.

I like Casey on a boy, mainly because the only Caseys I've met were boys.

keepitreal  1/22/2011
It's a nice name, but I would never use it because of Casey Anthony.
Christina Rose  7/7/2011
Just because Casey Anthony was a murderer doesn't mean that you can't name your child Casey. For every name, there is a bad person with the same one. But not every Casey is bad! But it does remind me of Casey Anthony, so I would just spell it with a K.
pupcake9798  7/12/2011
I like 'Kasey Ellen'. Different spellings are: KC, Kaysee, Kaisey, Kaesey, Kaycee, Kacy, and Kay-C. And, of course you can use a 'C' instead of a 'K'.
pupcake9798  7/12/2011
For a boy, I would spell it "Casey", and "Casey" ONLY! For other spelling variations, even just "Kasey" I would use on a girl. I like Kaycee.
C-Ticket  7/26/2011
In the UK, I have seen this spelled Kaci.
ListenToAsuka  8/6/2011
I prefer this name for a boy. I think for a girl an alternative spelling would be better. I think Casey Anthony has ruined this name for girls. I think Kaci for a girl.

My rambunctious, imaginative, affectionate, beautiful daughter's name is Casey. She is three, incredibly friendly, confident, independent, and playful. She is everything I could want in a child, and her name fits her perfectly. It is not too frilly, expecting her to be a girly-girl, and it's not too masculine, expecting her to be a toughie. She's under no obligations from her name, and it fits her like a glove.

I disagree with comments saying that Casey Anthony has ruined the name--what about Charles Manson and Son of Sam? If you meet a child named Sam or Charles, would you really think terribly of that child?

And, to the comment saying that no one can imagine an adult Casey, please believe me when I say I know an adult woman named Casey, she is kind, intelligent, fun and successful. All I could hope for my baby to be. I think this is a marvelous name for both sexes, so versatile, without being too much of anything.
Gypsy November  5/24/2012
What about infamous? CASEY ANTHONY!
SEC908  10/7/2012
And here we go with the "oh, this is a boy's name? Oh well, I'm going to give it to my daughter. Maybe if I change the spelling, it'll sound more feminine!" No. Casey was originally a boy's name, and unlike Evelyn and Vivian, it should always remain a boy's name. I have to say it does sound a lot more feminine than say, Madison or Taylor, but I still prefer to use names for their original genders. And no, spelling it in some horribly childish, "creative" way like kasey, kaycee, or kaci does not make it acceptable. That's even worse than the original spelling.
― Anonymous User  1/28/2013
I love this name for both genders! I have Casey Amelia on my list for a girl and Casey Alexander for a boy.
Skylar_Arianna  5/22/2013
I prefer Kacey to this simply because I pronounce this form of it as CAS-ee. So in my mind, this is CAS-ee and Kacey is KAY-cee.
EkiAku  6/7/2013
I really really like this name for both girls and boys, but absolutely hate other ways of spelling it: Kaci, Kacey, Kaycey etc. In my opinion they just scream white trash!
Alexanna  5/2/2014
I knew a boy with this name. Honestly... I don't like it being used for EITHER genders. :/ Seriously, I just DON'T get the appeal of this name. It makes me think of the word "case" and items such as suitcases, briefcases and phone cases. To "get on someone's case" means to "berate, or complain to somebody, especially to find fault or criticize"- I guess this is what I've basically done to those who love this name but hey, that's just my opinion.
― Anonymous User  7/27/2014

I'm surprised Casey Anthony hasn't completely torpedoed this name, but it seems to have continued the downward slide it was already on at a pretty steady pace.

My name is spelled Kacie. I hated my name growing up and shortened it to KC because those are my initials. I disliked my name because it was so different and everyone pronounced it wrong and I could never find it anywhere. I was born in 1980. Now I love my name. I get so many compliments on it, especially when I have to spell it out for people who automatically think it's spelled Casey. It can be a pain to have to spell it every time you give your name, but now that I'm older, I just enjoy it, because it's different, and there's nothing wrong with being different. I'm also a business woman and feminine, so to say the name doesn't say business or is masculine is anything but.

1: A rare variety of this name is Kaisey. It's only feminine, and rarely used, but it's there!

2: This name is used by the small Instagram personality Casey Ducarle.
OttilieMaisie  4/3/2015
I love the name Casey for both guys and girls. It does have a more youthful character to it, as a lot of Caseys are sports stars (according to Wikipedia). I have a unisex name myself, and find that people with unisex names tend to be more attractive than those single gender names. Of course, I would say that! Interestingly enough, "Casey" is the top name for plumbers in the US (

I forgot that this was a unisex name. Casey sounds too feminine to be used for a boy in my opinion. Also Casey Anthony RUINED this name for me.
Luvbug86  11/12/2015
My name is Casey, and I am a female. I like it because it is pretty on paper and not so common that almost everyone has it. The sound of it is meh. I can deal with it, but it's not fun to say or cool sounding or anything. That said, I wouldn't have any other name because I'm a Casey.
― Anonymous User  12/13/2015
To be honest, I absolutely love that my name is spelt 'Kayce' and not 'Casey' - yet it's always disregarded by others as not being the proper spelling and people always pronounce it wrong. Honestly, back off the name - any other way of spelling it is great; I don't even like the 'original' way of spelling it.

So, we have a daughter, she is 27 and her name is Casey. Not some confusing spelling. She is truly 'brave'! Successful, brilliant and resilient. On paper she can never be judged by a frilly spelling of her name. Love that girl!

I guess it would be okay on a girl who strips for a living, but if a guy said to me "Hi, my name is Casey!" I would automatically assume he's either gay or a tranny.

Eileen1209864  5/7/2016
My name is Casey and I personally really like it. It suits me well, because I see it as the perfect balance between not too girly and frilly and also not extremely masculine at the same time. It's just a casual name that describes me, a casual person who is just laid back and easy going. One of the really beautiful and very girly/frilly, formal names just wouldn't suit me. I also think that Casey looks pretty on paper and sounds pretty nice too. I prefer my spelling over the alternative ones, although I am pretty traditional in general and am not fond of many alternate spellings of any name.
This can also be used as a guy's name too, although I have met many more girls who share my name than guys. It is a great name all around, and to me, describes someone who is laid back, easy going, likes to have fun, and is not too uptight. It's a very casual and fun name.

Breakofday stated that Casey Jones was responsible for the crash he died in. The evidence doesn't support that and looks more like a cover-up. Railroads are well-known for things like that. The negative term, "railroaded", is around for a reason!

Casey Tibbs was a world class athlete from South Dakota. "He was of English descent. He held the "World All-Around Rodeo Champion" title twice, in 1951 and 1955. He won in 1949, 1951–1954, and 1959, the world saddle bronc riding championship and in 1951 the world bareback bronc riding championship. He was featured on a 1951 cover of Life magazine."[Wikipedia].

He later had a successful career as a stuntman and stunt coordinator spanning over 30 years. There is a bronze statue nearly 30 feet tall at the Pro-Rodeo Hall of Fame in Colorado Springs. Which is appropriate because he was truly one of those 'larger than life' individuals!
VMJH  1/31/2017
I'm a teenage female who was given the name Casey and have suffered with everyone assuming that as I'm a girl, it should be spelled oddly. This never made sense to me as I was named after my nana Catharine. Ca-sey but honestly, most of the new edgy spellings of this are terrible. Stick with either Casey or Casie at a push.

We named our daughter Casey, in 1983. It was the only name we agreed on and I didn't really like it then and I don't really like it now. I liked the meaning of it, BRAVE. She would be the younger sister of a physically challenged sister and we knew she would need to be brave throughout her life. She has proved to be not only brave, but a funny, compassionate, and smart young woman! She doesn't like her name either. Most of her mail is addressed to "Mr." which annoys her and the fact it is a common dog name really annoys her! Ooops, my bad! She is a professional and I think it does cross over from child to adult very well.
