I know one Kaleb, and they pronounce it "Kay-lub".

Worse than Caleb.

As far as spellings go, this one could be way worse. Still, I will always prefer "Caleb"

Kaleb isn't the worst but Caleb is definitely better in my opinion.

I happen to love the spelling as it is more unique than the common spelling Caleb. I named one of my son's Kaleb.

Ugh this spelling is atrocious. Spell it Caleb or don't use the name at all!

Kaleb, King of Axum/Aksum (died circa 540) was a 6th-century African king reigning in today's Eriteria and Ethiopia. He is the best-documented, and hence best-known, of the Axumite rulers.

King Kaleb is honoured as a saint in Oriental Orthodoxy, Eastern Orthodoxy, and Roman Catholicism under the name Saint Elesbaan, King of Ethiopia. His feast days are May 28 (Ginbot 20; Ethiopian Orthodox), October 24 (Eastern Orthodox), and October 27 (Roman Catholic).

Sorry... But it looks a little too feminine...

I agree. Kaleb sounds masculine and strong and it's actually my #1 in my list except I'll write it differently to make it a little unique. KHALEB

I love the name Kaleb! Very masculine and strong without being in your face about it. I prefer it spelt with a k, I'm not sure why, I just do. Definitely one of my top 5 boys names.

This spelling is even trashier than the real one and will cease to look cute after age five. Please, choose something else!
