Wow! What an ugly, tacky name. I feel bad for all the poor girls that were cursed with this name.
I can't imagine a 60 yr old woman with this.
Cute spelling :3.
This is a correction to a previous comment on 2/20/2021: I disagree with the haters! I like the name Kaylee. When I hear it, I think of a young girl who loves to dress up like a princess. If I met a girl named Kaylee, I will tell her her name is lovely. The sound is just childish, but if you dislike, simply don't use it! Please be more polite by not saying this is a(n) [insert negative trait here] name. I admit this spelling sounds much better than other variants of Kaylee.
I see a lot of people saying they prefer the spelling Kailey/Kailee but the pronunciation would be totally different. It would be "kahi-lee." If you want an alternative spelling go with something that still uses "kay" so people won't miss pronounce it.
Wow reading these comments was really a hit to my confidence. I've always loved my name even if it is more common. I think Kaylee is really pretty. It is simple and sleek but also playful. For those of you thinking about naming your daughter Kaylee I recommend you do! I've never been bullied because of my name and people always seem to like it. Also, I think more unique spellings (ex: Kaileigh) will just confuse people. Go with the phonetically correct spelling. Your kid will thank you in the long run.
I don’t like this spelling, the “Lee” ending makes it masculine, I prefer Kaylie.
The cat I got in 1999 was Kaylee. It’s cute for a pet, too cutsey for a child. I don’t think it ages well.
I don’t really see anything wrong with the name “Kaylee”, I think it’s a pretty cute name! It’s seems like a very good name for strong, independent women, in my opinion!
Too cutsey cutsey. Nothing elegant about it.
Don't even get me started on how immature this name is.
As a response to my last comment, I've changed my mind. I kind of like Kaylee. It wouldn't be my first choice, but I wouldn't be upset if I had to use this name. I like the spelling Kayley the best, but I also really like Kaylee. Kaylie is nice too.
I like this, however, it seems a bit dated. Cute name for a 20-30 year old though.
Ugh...Betches! This name is totes dorbs!

I'd spell it Keilee though, that looks more visibly pleasing.
There are so many different ways to spell this name, lmao. Anyways, I don’t like it. In my opinion this name is extremely overused. There’s nothing unique or special about this name.
My best friend's name is Kaylee. She loves her name, even if there are two other Kaylees in the school. She really hates it when people say she is juvenile or childish because of her name. But really, that is the only thing she dislikes about it. In conclusion, I like the name Kaylee because of my friend and even though I wouldn't personally use it, I can see why some would.
All of these haters bro. Everyone I've seen on here prefers very basic names lol. Come on, Kaylee isn't a bad name. Grow up and stop hating on names on a damn name website.
This name reminds me of my dog when it farts >:O.
It's okay, but not really creative.
I have been called the 'Original Kaylee' because I'm the oldest one! I will be 61 in December, so yes, I'm the oldest Kaylee I've ever met. What I have learned over the years that is very common in Kaylee's is that we are really fun, friendly and a bit precocious. And if you don't like a Kaylee, there is probably something wrong with you! Lighten up and have fun.
No thank you, Kay on it’s own is perfectly fine.
I am absolutely disgusted by these comments! Kaylee is a gorgeous, unique, and sophisticated name! My favorite spelling of this name is Caieliegh, as it's never used. I think Kaeliegh is also a beautiful and unique spelling too, as an anonymous user said. I'm planning on naming my future daughter Caieleigh-Avyanna. So to anyone who's thinking of naming their daughters (or even sons this!) - Go for it! I recommend it!.
By reading most of these comments, the personal ideas of MY name shocks me. I'll have to admit that I've spent a long time not accepting my name as it sounded strange coming from my mouth, or that it looks weird and it didn't sound pleasing coming from others. But some are talking about it ss a common name. I disagree as I've only met a few people, definitely not as common as Mikayla or basic. To be honest, if you do have the name it's common to dislike your name but eventually it'll be something you're proud of and really grow to love.
Bland, overused, tasteless name from the endless list of trendy stock names: Kaylyn, Kaycee, Kadee, Kylee, etc.
T a c k y.
I prefer it spelled Caiyleigh, I love the sound though!
Yeah, yeah. I don’t like this name very much either, and I also do think this doesn’t work very well on someone past the age of eight, but I won’t judge somebody by their name. It’s not a name I will ever keep in mind for a future child or a book character, that’s for sure. But claiming that all Kaylees are juvenile, immature, unintelligent, childish,arrogant, etc etc etc...I think we can go and redirect those definitions to a certain other someone.
There's about a million ways to spell this.
I think of a teen mom from MTV when I hear it - just do Hailey or something.
Very trendy and childish. There are also many different ways to spell it.
I don't like it. I prefer Makayla or Kayla. Kaylee is just not my taste. No offense to any Kaylee's, but I don't particularly care for it. But then again, my name is Wilhelm. If you like Kaylee, why not give it a go?
Nah, I'd only use this as a nickname for Kayla.
Kaylee is a recently created name and is a combination of Kay and Lee.
I love the name Kaylee! ❤

Kaylee is such a beautiful, classic, mature-sounding name! One thing I like about it is how timeless it is; you can picture a 2 year-old Kaylee and easily imagine a 70 year-old Kaylee as well!

It's a really old name of Irish origin; it's been around for centuries. It's definitely not "made-up".

I do like this name, however, the spelling is quite common. So, when I had my daughter 16 years ago, I decided to be more creative with her name! Her full name is Kaeliegh Elysabyf McKay and I am glad I chose such a beautiful name for her! (Heh, I'm such a genius)
Now my little girl is truly unique ❤

However, I'm quite saddened by the fact that my Kaeliegh Elysabyf hates her name. She says "it's trashy, trendy, and immature-sounding", "people misspell it all the time", and "it's ugly". I don't get that at all. Even worse, she wants to be called Kate. I will not call her that! I'm her mother and it's the name I like and chose for her, so she'll just have to deal with it!

Speaking of hating a name, I've noticed some very hurtful comments about this name and its other variations. How dare you all! How dare you judge my choice for my child's name! A name won't affect the child's life or success at all! It is also far from "juvenile" and "trashy". Like I said before, it is classic and timeless with a lot of history.

Anyways, this name is wonderful, I'm glad I gave my daughter a variation of it, and I definitely recommend it ❤❤❤.
Wow, to the Anonymous User 2/24/2020, you can really picture this “name” on a 70 year old? It is most certainly not a beautiful, classic, feminine and mature-sounding name. It is none of those things!
I hope you’re sarcastic. I dearly hope you are being sarcastic.
I agree.
To the Anonymous user who posted on 2/24/20, are you SERIOUS? Kaylee IS a made-up name, it's literally Kay and Lee combined. It's also EXTREMELY modern. I feel so sorry for her. If she wants to be called Kate then just call her Kate for heavens sake. You can't force someone to bear a name that they don't like. Oh, and coming up with a spelling that will get misspelled (and maybe even mispronounced) 24/7 is NOT called being "kre8tive" and "Yoonique". Sorry, but it's true.
Seriously, to the Anonymous user who posted on the 4/23/20...Names like this are all over the place. You're probably going to find one person who is named Precious and another named Roman (It's just life). I personally don't like this name, but there might be other people out there who do.
Hi, I am that Anonymous user. I am just telling her what she definitely needed to hear (or see?). I agree that names like this are all over the place, and if people like them, then that's okay, good for them. Just don't be surprised if your child ends up hating it. However, I definitely will be "nicer" with my comments.
This name is extremely common where I live. There are SO many girls named Kaylee.
It sounds okay but it’s pretty childish. Also, it really ticks me off how you guys are all about Sophie being popular and don’t mention a thing about Kaylee. Kaylee is more popular than Sophie (#97, Sophie is #98.)
When I look at this name I think overly-spoiled rich girl.
My name is Kaylee and I personally really like it. I think it sounds very pretty and graceful. I’m 13 and if you ask anyone I know, I’m not ditzy or the typical stereotype. It’s relatively unique, too. There’s only one other person named Kaylee in my grade.
News flash: your child isn't going to be a baby forever!
I think this would work better as a nickname for Kathleen or something rather than a legal name.
EWWW I hate this name, I throw up when I hear it. IT'S DISGUSTING! I have a friend named Kaylee and every time I hear someone say her name I can't help myself but to gag. Why would someone name their daughter this horrid name? I can't even fathom it, name your clown this not your child.
Ditzy-sounding and juvenile.
Kaylee Wu is Ben’s “girlfriend” in the book, “Dream Jumper”.
This name just straight up sounds weird and ugly, in my opinion. Sorry to anyone who likes this name, but it just sounds so stupidly trendy to me. I don't understand adding all these suffixes to names... it's crazy.
I'm surprised this name hasn't reached the top 20. I hear it everywhere, it seems. I don't really like it.
Kaylee Alyssa Quinn is one of the Quinn Sisters on YouTube and is a dancer known for starring on “Dance Moms” with her sisters, Rihanna and Coco.
Kaylee Marie is tween youtuber.
This has got to be the most trendy-sounding name I’ve ever heard, but I think I heard worse. It’s really original, but I prefer Katie or Hailey.
I was researching the name Kayleigh because it is my name. It means so many things but in the bible I heard it meant beautiful and that is my favorite!
My name is Kaylee- my mom's middle name is Kay and my grandpa's middle name is Lee. The name Kaylee means “pure’.
My name is Kaylee and yes I like my name so don't say bad things about it because your name is probably worse. You know what they say if you ain't got no haters you ain't poppin. So back off haters. I mean you obviously got some good feelings about it cause y'all making time to comment. So y'all need to find another name to play wit.
Wow, so many haters! I couldn't believe how many people had such an issue with my name. Kaylee. I've never heard it in person- everyone has always said they love my name to my face at least... I tend to go by Kay because most people end up calling me Kayla or Kylie and that drives me nuts. I love my name & I'm not immature or childish. I was born in 88 and I was actually named after a rock song named Kaylee by a band called Marridean? Marridian? Sorry not sure of the spelling of the band. But it's actually a very pretty song & I love my name. I AM Caucasian with blonde hair and blue eyes but I'm no cheerleader and I'm most definitely more of a tomboy. I love my name & this is actually the first site that says it's not of a Gaelic origin. My entire name is Kaylee Nadeen Kearney & I'm basically Irish/Italian... anyway to all you haters out there y'all are just mad because you probably have way more common names like Jenny or Polly or Patty or Sally. Kaylee is far from trashy. It's beautiful and more rare then Laura Jean which is also more trashy. I would never have such negative stuff to say about other people's names. Y'all need to have more open minds.
Please do not name your child this! I plan on changing my name someday. Kaylee is an okay name, but there are way better names! This name is way too immature and I can't imagine an adult having this name.
Childish, immature, and quite utterly too cutesy sounding. Name your dog this not a child, good gracious you people!
I love my name I only know 3 Kaylees- me, my friend, and another friend that spells it differently but anyways Kaylee is not childish I think it's more mature than childish. Sometimes I can be a goof but I know when to act mature. I have had many people mispronounce and misspell my name so yeah I just covered all of the lamest comments I've seen.
Kaylee seems very childish. It doesn't age well. Also the spelling of Kaylee just seems dumbed down. It seems like a too simple name. Kay-lee. Kaylee.
I absolutely love it! KAYLEE is the best name in the world! Not only for what her creator chose for her to be called foremost... but also for its meaning! Clearly defined are the wonders of "his" hands that mended this purified spirit from Heaven, spotless, a diamond sent by God.
My name is Kaylee and it means beautiful and independent. Whoever says that the name should only be for 5 years old and younger is dumb because I am 15. I am responsible, tidy, and unique.
In 2018, 2 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Kaylee who is registered female with the Social Security Administration. It is the 562nd most common female first name for living U.S. citizens.
My name is KayLee it honestly isn't a bad name and for sure isn't TRASHY.
It's okay. I've heard worse. Sounds a bit cutesy but I don't hate it.
I don't really like names ending in ee. I prefer Kayla.
Can you say T R A S H Y?
These people have some issues if they have so much hatred for a name! My name is Kaylie and yes, even though I don't like it because I'd prefer Jessica, I still can't believe how much hatred this name gets! Honestly, I go by Lea because Lee is a nickname and I wanted to make it more feminine without using a name that isn't out of arm's reach. I don't fit in these stereotypes that you mindless people make. I'm white with black hair, naturally blonde but I hate it, and gray eyes. People associate Kaylee with a blonde slutty cheerleader. Actually, I'm lonely and I still haven't had my first kiss yet- I'm fifteen. These stereotypes and hatred for this name is mindless and ridiculous. I'm a Kaylie and I'm stronger than these stereotypes.
Yo, my name is Kaylee, and I've had this name for about 15 years. And I've never once thought it was childish or incompetent. I hate it when people say they dislike the name, as if they had a say in how my mom wanted to name me. I am not perky, I am not a cheerleader, I am not Caucasian or white or blonde. I am Mexican with dark skin yet my name is Kaylee. Got it? You can be any goddamn race and have the name Kaylee, Kayleigh, Kaylie, Keiley, Kaeley, etc. However you want to spell it. I prefer my name spelled K-a-y-l-e-e. It's straightforward and not complex, yet not boring or too simple. How many people do you know with the name Kaylee? Not very much. It isn't common, it's a unique name. Idk what area youre in but in southern cali, there are very few “Kaylee’s” I hate it when people misspell it too. Like my name is not Cayley or Kayleigh or Kaeleigh or Kaley or anything. It's just Kaylee. And I love it. I don't know how my mom got the name but I love it. It's not common and it’s beautiful.
My name is Kayli and it is the greatest name ever! According to other sites, the gods wish they had my name!
Wow. I can't imagine why people get so up in arms about this name and say such rude things about it. My name is Caylee, and I'm a 29 year old professional librarian with two master's degrees. In the future, I plan to be Dr. Caylee, and have NEVER felt that my name was holding me back in any way. The most negative experience I've ever had with my name is people misspelling, which has a near-zero impact on my life. I've never had anyone think that I was stupid or incompetent, because - spoiler alert - I'm not.

I came to this comments section because one of the names I was considering for my own future daughter (Josephine) had quite a few negative comments, and I wanted to see what people thought of my name and how it might affect me. And while many of these comments are beyond hurtful (and so thoughtless), it makes me feel fortunate that I haven't encountered such rude, judgmental people in my real life. Happily for me, the people in my life value actual things like kindness and work ethic. So, even though this was quite an unpleasant experience, I don't think it will dissuade me from considering Josephine. I love my name, and some bad-mannered and offensive internet commenters aren't going to change that.
I feel neutral towards this name. However I don't care for this spelling, or any 'Lee' ending spellings for that matter. I wouldn't use the name but in a hypothetical situation, I would use the spelling of Kailey. Kailey looks the nicest out of all the possible spelling variants.
Tacky, dumb, and just plain bad. Sounds very undignified and juvenile.
Incredibly juvenile. News flash: your daughter is not going to be a baby the rest of her life.
I agree with Acajou. Also the name would get misspelled so many times.
I love the name Kaylee because it's my name, you can spell it in so many ways, it's coolbean and not so many people can say they have a unique name like that. And the k in my name makes my initials KAT.
My name is Kalie (that spelling) and I've always liked it. Its spelling is unique. I don't think I would like my name as much if it were spelled traditionally (Kaylee). I've known several Kalies growing up, and they were all spelled differently. It can be annoying that no one ever pronounces or spells it correctly, but I wouldn't want any other name. I've never considered it cutesy or felt anyone didn't take me seriously. But hey, I'm 24 and only 4 ft 11 so I've been tiny my whole life! I also look young, so for me it's fitting. I never realized there was so much hate for the name until coming here. I also didn't think it was an odd name growing up. I mean, it's more practical than Blanket or North.
I love how this name is pronounced, even though it is common I still love this name.
As a "Kaylee" I spell my name as Chaeli. Coming from my dad's name, Michael. I have not had that many problems with the name, and no one has made fun of it yet. Except Siri if you type it in as that, it'll call you "chili". Pretty fun name also. I don't think of it as a "childish" name. But, I do love the name also. Only problem is that if someone calls "Haley" I get it mixed with my name, I had troubles with teachers for that lol.
Where do you live that "Kayleigh" is the most common spelling? I'm just curious because in the states, "Kaylee" is within the top 100 whereas the other spelling variants are listed lower. At least as of now.

Here is where they are currently listed within the states for 2015.

Kaylee: #61
Kayleigh #326
Kailey #532
Kaylie #551
Kailee #812
Caylee #840.
My name is Kaylee, and spelt that way. It's neither ditsy nor a childish name. (I am 27). It's annoying when people spell my name wrong though! Kayleigh is the most common spelling. I do like that it is like the Irish Ceili/Ceilidh, makes it seem pretty. I tend to go by Kaylee, Kay or Kayles, whatever floats people's boats.
One of the names my mother considered was Kaylee, after her friend Kay Lee. I'm glad they stuck with Paige in the end because I really don't like the name Kaylee...
Too cutesy and will not age well but I do say that this name isn't THAT bad. Though I honestly don't understand why this spelling is the most common. Kailey looks the most pleasant. Kaylie even looks better

Kaylee: The double e ending is tacky! Using this spelling to honor a "Lee" doesn't do this spelling any justification. Kaylee is a terrible spelling!
I love the name Kaylee! One of my best friends has that name, and I don't think of it as just a little girl's name, like has been said. It totally fits an older person, it just depends on which person. To me, this name gives the impression of talented, fun, thoughtful, and overall just awesome. And I like the spelling Kaylee just fine, but I have nothing against the name given in a different form (I do know a Kaleigh that I didn't have the best experience with though, but that was just one person).
I named my second daughter Kaylee Rachelle.
I love the name Kaylee. I named her Kay after my mother in law, Lee after my sister and Rachelle a twist on my middle name Michelle. I love her name, it fits her. People who have a problem with the name are allowed to. And it was picked with a lot of thought and love. She is 6 now but as she grows I'm sure she'll love her name for the family members it represents and its uniqueness. I know I love my Kaylee very dearly.
My name is Kaylee and I love it! It's not a little girls name, but it is a very girly name I think. But I mean, if the shoe fits... ;)
I've been lucky enough to know three people with this name: a Kaley, a Cayleigh, and a Kaylee.

Kaley was my very best friend growing up. The smiliest person I will ever know. Her parents say that it means "party" in German.

Cayleigh is one of the most talented people I've ever met. Her singing voice is absolutely incredible, just like she is. She is named for her mom, Leigh.

And Kaylee is the most precious little girl ever; the daughter of my good friend.

I think that this name is adorable yet sophisticated. I absolutely love this name because it reminds me of the sweet souls with this name whom I have had the pleasure of knowing.
Kaley is NOT German for "party". It is an anglicized version of the word ceilidh, a type of Irish/Scottish social gathering. Not German.
Cutesy, juvenile, and rather ugly. Is there a reason that Kay can't just be used on its own? Or Caitlin, Casey, Katherine, Katrina.... just anything but Kaylee. Kaylee sounds like a bratty child's name, not the name of a sophisticated adult.
My name is Kaylee and I for one have never been really confident in my name. It sucks to say the least. I am not childish or anything of the sort, yet people judge me for my name. We don't get to pick the name we are given when we are born. We're kinda stuck with it for awhile and nobody seems to realize that. I do like my name, it's just I get judged by so many people because of it.
Kaylee means "slender". My sister's recently born daughter has been named Kaylee because she had a low weight at birth and was thin. Kaylee is a very beautiful name. Mostly Americans use it. Now Kaylee is a year old and still as cute as she was earlier. I love this name and recommend it to name a younger daughter.
My name if Kaeleigh and I think the name suits me well. I also think that you can be taken seriously with this name because everybody I know can take me seriously.
My name is Kayleigh. Spelled that way because my mom's middle name is Leigh. I am almost 20 years old and not once have I not been taken seriously because of my name.
I named my daughter Kaylee. It was a name I decided on in 1963 when I was 13 years old. It is based on the combination of my own middle name Kay, and my best friend who died of cancer when she was very young, whose middle name was Lee. I had never heard the name prior to that time and am surprised at how popular it is now. My daughter is 35 and loves her name.
Sounds very childish. When I hear the name Kaylee, I think of a child under five.
I like this name, and I have a lot of friends with it. However, I've only known one who spells it Kaylee, and I didn't particularly like her. I've also seen Kayleigh, Kaileigh, and Kayley. The name is very popular, but it is still nice. It's one of those that I don't get tired of hearing, but I wouldn't want it for myself.
THIS NAME IS AWESOME, NO RETURNS. Even though people confuse my name, THIS NAME IS AWESOME, NO RETURNS. So ya...This is my name and I love it.
My name is Kaylee, and I am one of the originals. I was born in 1985, before my name ever made it into baby books. I find it interesting that so many people think this name is for a child. I hated my name, probably because I too thought it sounded too girly, and I was a tomboy. But, as I matured, I came to realize that the perception of the name is all in how you present and see yourself, as well as the cadence you use to pronounce your name. I have become a strong, independent woman and I have never had any problems being seen as otherwise. Also, I now know that my name was created as a combination of my grandparents' middle names, Kaye and Wiley. And with my grandfather now passed, I cherish my name now more than ever. That said, I believe it makes no sense to name your child something because you think it's cute. Name them something that has deep meaning for you and your family. That will be something they can cherish and be proud of for years to come.
I really dislike this name. It's just a flimsy, dinky name. "Forgettable," as an earlier commenter noted.
I'm a 28 year old Kayleigh and have never had an issue with being taken seriously. I'm an Ivy League grad that works in a field that that is predominantly male. Perception is not the reality.
For those of you who keep saying that you can not imagine a doctor called Kaylee - I am a doctor and my name is Kaylee. I have never felt that I have not been taken seriously because of my name!
Hi I think that Kaylee is a great name and I don't like the people that say it's not good and childish... those people are mean.
I LOVE THE NAME KAYLEE! Don't make fun of it!
Hi my name is Kaylee and it is awesome.
I named my 4 month old Kaylee. Granted, it is not the most popular of spellings in the UK but my other half and myself like it and it suits her down to a T. She was named after Kaylee from Firefly/Serenity as it's our favourite show/movie. I love her name, wouldn't change it. Why can't there be a Dr. Kaylee, Nobel Prize winner. I'm sure she could do it if she put her mind to it like a lot of people can.
Some of these comments are really quite arrogant and rude.
The name Kaylee apparently sounds like "Jelly bean", "Tacky", "Shouldn't be given to anyone past 5 years old", "Not suitable for an adult woman because it's too child like", "Someone with this name will not be taken seriously as an adult" and "The name should die". Some people are really bitter and if anything is horrible, it is the arrogance and ignorance from such opinions here, not the actual name itself.
Here in Britain we don't judge people's abilities merely based on their names.
I will agree with one comment here about people not hearing the pronunciation of Kaylee properly, people often think I say Hayley or Kylie when I say my name is Kaylee, Kaylee's have soft and quiet voices, that is true and it can be very frustrating trying to get your name heard properly. A soft name for a soft person, hardly a coincidence is it?
A name has nothing to do with being taken seriously, it's to do with who is behind the name.

If one dislikes any name so much to the point of hatred, then one has underlying issues with themselves which need addressing, because obviously personal experience and/or the ego are clouding clear thinking.
My name is Kaylee and I am in my late twenties and I will defend this name against narrow minded views, because that's all they are ; narrow minded views without truths. Admittedly this name does sound cute and it does sound young, however that doesn't necessary make it a bad thing. I have been told that I have a cute personality and that my cute name matches my personality. I can't say that I've never not been taken seriously because of my name, that's just delusional, or perhaps bitter jealousy talking here.
Being like a child is how an adult should aspire to be like, because children are innocent, very loving, loyal and honest. They are not corrupted, they see the good in everyone and everything before the bad, they do not tell lies and go out of their way to deliberately hurt others like adults do. A child is how the human soul should be like and how it originally was, so to have a cute child like name is a blessing for oneself, not a curse. Perhaps we should all embrace the innocent child in all of us, and then there wouldn't be so much evil in this world, which is only caused by the corrupted adult ego.
Don't insult something you clearly have no understanding of.
I don't want to have a hard name because that doesn't suit my personality. It is obviously not a coincidence that people are given particular names to match their personalities.

Perhaps people should realize that a name is not just a name, but a name actually carries a deeper meaning which connects spiritually to a particular person.
Kaylee, according to some sources was formed from Chaeli, which was formed from Hebrew Michael or Mi-ke-el which means who is like god, which has connections to Archangel Michael. Chaeli sounds similar to Kaylee and is spelt similar to Michael. There is obviously a distant religious connection to the name Kaylee, however because the first variation is so old and now has many different ways of spelling it, the meaning is surrounded with deep confusion and people think they have the right to make up meanings.
There are far too many ways to spell this name, I agree, but that is not the fault of people who have been given this name, is it?
Some people say the name Kaylee was formed from the Irish dance ceilidh, which also sounds similar to Chaeli but not one single person says the deeper meaning of this word Ceilidh or where this word arose from. Who's to say Ceilidh, the name of this Irish dance meaning social gathering was not formed from Chaeli and Michael? If Kaylee really is formed from Ceilidh, then let's find out what Ceilidh means and why this dance was given this particular name in the first place, even a dance with a name like ceilidh must have a deeper hidden meaning. Where is the common sense among people?
The Hebrew description of Kaylee actually fits my personality perfectly, unlike that of the ludicrous urban dictionary. Kaylee is also an English name, not just American as my mother was not inspired by America to call me Kaylee, it was her intuition which inspired her, so to say it is Americanised is not entirely true. It looks more like an English word, than an American word.
The person who stated, “Here in Britain we don't judge people's abilities merely based on their names“, is incorrect. The British are very judgmental about names. The name Kaylee is considered “down market” because it is an “Essex name”.
My name, Kaylee, came from my moms middle name Kay, and my dad's middle name Lee. Growing up NO ONE ever heard the name and now it's very popular and spelt several different ways but I wouldn't change my name to anything else :) I'm definitely a Kaylee!
This name seemed really young to me even before the Caylee Anthony case, and since then it REALLY seems like a name exclusively for little kids. Obviously there are going to be adults named Kaylee (spelled however) someday, but it's hard to imagine "Professor Kaylee Smith, winner of the Nobel Prize" or "Dr. Caylee Jones, world-renowned heart surgeon." The seemingly endless spellings of this name complicate it way too much.
My name is Kaylee and I hate it. I have always hated it. I agree with everyone who's saying that it is a flimsy name. The people that are saying people could just call us Kay, I hate when people call me that because it sounds like someone is trying to end a conversion. I also hate the nickname Lee. No one says it and it also sounds pansy-like. In my opinion don't name your child this name. Remember that this is my name so this is coming from someone who absolutely hates her name. When I'm older I'm planning on changing it legally.
I don't think Kaylee is TOO bad of a name, but any name ending in -ee instantly looks childish to me. However, spelled Kailey, looks a tad bit more mature and not too different from Hailey. I can't believe this name is popular!
Urgh, I despise this name. It doesn't suit my taste. When I compare this to Hayley (which is a name I hate also), I can admit that out of the two, Hayley is nicer.
Update: I don't hate the name Hayley anymore but my comment still stands: Hayley is a wayyy better name than Kaylee.
I may be biased because it's my name (well the original spelling of it) but my name is Ceilidh I'm 15 and I've never been worried about my name being too young for me until now. I was called Ceilidh because my parents are Christians and they thought I was going to be a boy so they were going to call me Caleb, (it works because my older brother's called Joshua- get it Joshua and Caleb?) but then I was a girl and they decided to call me Ceilidh. I loved growing up with my name because it made me unique, but at the same time everybody can pronounce it (other than the occasional sea-lid-huh or Kelly) the only annoying thing is I can never find it in souvenir shops. :(
Other spellings Kaleigh, Kayli

They have the same pronunciation, are of Irish or Scottish origin and mean beautiful.

This name is also a variation of Kelilah
Of Hebrew and Arabic origin, with the same meaning of beautiful.
The name Kaylee annoys me. There doesn't seem to be a right way to spell it, for one thing, and it sounds insubstantial and not very pleasant for another.
One of my least favorite names ever. Not even gonna go into why I don't like it, as many people have already stated most of the reasons. Let me just say this: if it wasn't a name fifty years ago, it shouldn't be one now! I mean, doesn't that tell you something?! God, this name is so hopelessly childish and modern.
When I hear "Kaylee" I think of a shallow, vapid person, or a little girl. Which I'm not.(My name is Kaylee.) And I can't count how many times people think I said Kylee or Hayley, or Kayla because I have a soft voice.
My name is Kaylee and from research I have learned that Kaylee means 'Beloved' in Arabic, 'Pure' and 'Keeper of the keys' in English, 'Like God' in Hebrew, and 'slender' or 'pasture' in Jamaican. There are so many meanings.
Even though my name is Kaylee, I would much rather be called something with life or character, something exotic, like Arya (female), or Alanna, or Griffin (female), or Alianne. Kaylee is a lifeless name. Even Ella or Ellie (my parents' two almost-choices) would have been better. At least they sound like a person and not two people or an object. And I am sick and tired of getting mixed up with my classmate Kayla, or being called Haylee or Kayla or Baylee.
Personally I love this name, it's simple, sweet and common enough that everyone can pronounce it. The variant spellings make it difficult, but no more so than Christine or Katherine.

Anyone that says they can't see it on a person over such and such an age- Guess What? It's a popular name, in 40 years you're going to see all the Kaylee's grown up and in the professional world where they will be taken seriously and they will be parents and grandparents. You're going to have to get used to it sooner or later.
I'll never for the life of me figure out why it's so popular. It's so infantile and dull and overly kr8tyvv. It's... ugh! Choose another name, please!
Terrible, tacky, overused name. However, Kaylee Frye from Firefly was such an awesome character I can't bring myself to hate it too much. Would never use it though.
I've never liked this name to start with, and I've despised it even more after hearing about the Casey Anthony trial nonstop. Nothing against Caylee Anthony or anyone with similar names, but this name sounds very childish. It may sound cute on a toddler, but it doesn't sound appropriate on an older adult. And spelling it differently doesn't help either.
I like how the only people that seem to like this name are people with the name themselves and mothers who can't seem to think for themselves when it comes to names. Haha yeah exactly.
I love this name although I get called Hailee and there is a girl at my church whose name is Kaylee and it's really really confusing. Every time I heard a girl say it I would look up and look around it was so embarrassing.
Okay this may be biased because my name is Kaylee (same spelling) but...

1. This is the easiest Kaylee to spell as it is just Kay and Lee
2. It is not cutsey... the name does not dictate the person. The persons personality dictates what others think of the name.
3. I have a 93% average. Therefore, when people think of me they think of a smart person and an individual. Don't judge the name... judge the person!
There's too many variations. I've only seen it spelled Kaleigh, no Kaylees or Kaileys. I also have seen Ceili, which I prefer as it's not some tryndee name.
Well I named my second daughter Kayley. I like the name and I don't think people won't take her serious because of her name! I came up with the name and spelling because her father's name is Kevin and my name is Ashley so Kay for Kevin & Ley For ashLEY! I think it's cute!
My name is Caylee, and I love my name. I'm 20 years old and the only problem I've ever had with my name is that no one ever spells it right. I'm never not taken seriously because of it, and I'm always being told how pretty and unique the spelling is.
Kaywinnit Lee 'Kaylee' Frye of tv series Firefly.
It's cute, but I can't picture it on anyone past 17. Maybe it's just me though...
This is my name. I love it. I'm 19 years old, and not once have I ever thought my name was too childish. I think it suits me well. I also love the fact that there aren't many people my age with the name. I think it's a fun, bubbly, beautiful name.
If you like this, I'd advise Kayleigh, as this is the most common spelling so she won't have to deal with that too much. It looks prettier like that anyway.
No, I do not like this. Or it's other forms that can not be misspellings because there is no name to misspell. I agree that it's very childish. It's funny though that such a weird name has become so unoriginal. Funny and sad.
Childish, idiotic name. The parents who give their kids this name seem to be actual nutjobs too, every time I heard of a parent murdering their daughter the name seems to be Cay/haylee. Maybe it's just because it's currently popular, but...
It's tacky, meaningless (don't even bother saying 'it means ______ to me', because I could say 'spoofax' means 'beautiful gazelle' to me but would anybody else ever care or take me seriously?), and NOT unique -- no legitimate name is -- because a zillion people are named this.
One of those childish Kay- names which are so popular now. Kaylee in particular seems to be the most childish-sounding of them. I can't picture it or take it seriously on anyone past the age of four. Do today's parents sincerely not care that what sounds cute on their baby or small child will sound babyish and unprofessional on a grown woman, or do they not think their child will age?
Yuck. I hate these 'trendy, modern' kid names people are using, especially Kaylee, which looks strange on anyone past the age of 10.
Kaylee is very babyish. I don't think it looks good on anyone past the age of five. It also sounds rather ditzy.
I really love this name for a girl or woman. (: When the female is younger it sounds very cute. And when they are older it can sound mature too, like Kelly or Carly. They could always go by Kay if they felt it wasn't "mature" enough. My name is Kaylee, but I spell it Cailee. I think it's very unique and I like it. (:
This name makes me think of céilí, which is an Irish dance (though the word really means "partners" in Irish). I like céilí, but not enough to name my daughter after them. But outside of Ireland, this could work fine as a girl's name, as it does sound cute and feminine. I just can't get over the spelling. No offence intended, but Kaylee looks very Americanised. Please spell it Céilí, as it is really an Irish word. (Céilí is pronounced exactly the same as Kaylee.) It's not a name that I would use (as it's a dance), but Céilí does sound very sweet and upbeat.
Arabic Kalilah (Kay lee lah).
If you're going to name your child this, you may as well name them something like "Tootsie" or "Coochie".
One of the main characters in the Firefly series/Serenity movie is Kaylee Frye.
I don't like these trendy child names. I mean what happens when your 50 and your name is Cayley? Seriously it's a little kid name. There's so many ways to spell this name it's annoying.

I'm somewhat forced to be partial with Kaylee, as I have lived with it for eleven years, since birth. But it's no where near my favorite. I would have much rather been 'Allison', or possibly even 'Samantha' or 'Leah', but Kaylee is no what near like me.

I see that name as a little girly-girl who always wears pink dresses and big pink bows. That is not me at all. Kaylee has almost no nicknames but Kay and (and in my case, because of my favorite video game) K. K Slider. Sorry. Had to rant.
I think it is a pretty name. I don't think it is a flimsy name. I love it. I like cutesy names. I wouldn't mind naming my daughter this.
I can't see an 80 year old with this name.
I like my name, and if people don't take me seriously, it's because of how I act, not my name. There's a lot of girls in my town with my name and spelled the same, Kaylee. I live in a very small town, so it is pretty amazing how people can say 'no one's going to take them seriously' when that would be saying "everyone in the United States/other country named [insert name here] is going to fail because people won't take them seriously because they aren't named right". I think it's a little judgemental.

By the way, I happen to think my name IS unique, because my parents put their middle names together, they didn't get it out of book, like the rest of my siblings. :) Don't judge people on their names.
Sounds like a very forgettable name. It's dull, without being classic, and will not last through their lives as a pretty name. So much better things to name your kids than Kaylee.
I like this name, but not spelled this way. I generally don't like names with an ee (Rylee, Kylee, Maree) on the end other than Lee in it's original form. The issue with this name is there are so many variants, there is not one that you would automatically assume that it is spelled a particular way. For example, Courtenay is a variant of Courtney, but unless someone tells you, you most likely would assume there name is Courtney. I like the spelling Kaylie, Kailey, and Kayleigh better. Oddly, even though this is the most popular spelling I've never heard of anyone with this name, only Kayleigh.
It's not so much that I don't like this name, I just don't like the spelling at all. I prefer Kayleigh, Kailey, or Ceilidh. This spelling just sort of annoys me a bit. No offense to anyone named Kaylee, it's just my personal opinion. As I said, I much prefer the other spellings.
A blonde, blue-eyed, ditzy cheerleader comes into my mind when I hear this name.
I don't see what all this talk about Kaylee being hard to grow up with is. I wouldn't think twice if I met an adult Kaylee. It doesn't seem that different to me from any other names with "ee" sounds at the end. Jenny, Marilee, Debbie, Allie, Kelly. All these names are, in my opinion, on par with Kaylee. Kaylee just doesn't get any respect because it's fairly new.
It makes me think of an Irish ceilí. Which is a dance.
Name of the main character in the cartoon movie 'Quest for Camelot: The Magic Sword'.
Why won't this "name" die?
Kaylee - Awful. Kaeleigh - Horrible.
Kaylee is an okay name but it's beter spelled like Kaeleigh because it is more unique and prettier.
There are a billion variations of this name, so if this seems too cutesy for you, pick a variation.
Well, I suppose I'm partial because it is my name, but I grew up in an area where no one else had it, and I've never thought of it as cutesy or anything of that nature. I guess it's all in what you do with it; I suppose people will make associations with the name based upon people they know with the name, and hopefully I do it justice. ;) Personally, I think it's a pretty and still rather unique name.
I never understood the popularity of this name.
Can also be spelt Caley - this is the only spelling I have seen used in NZ.
I really dislike this name. Probably one of my least favorites.
I agree, this name is far too cutesy/young sounding for an adult woman. Not a good name to grow up with in my opinion.
Kaylee is pretty but very young sounding, not an easy name to grow up with.
Kaylee is the name of one of the 9 main characters in the TV show - "Firefly".
This is my name so of course I like it! I have never thought of it as a "flimsy" name and everyone I've ever met has said that they like the name and ask how my parents came up with it. I am in my late 20's so there aren't too many people my age with the name. Oh, and by the way I have never not been taken seriously because my name is Kaylee!
I gave my daughter this name not realizing the popularity of it that year, lol. But I must say it fits her perfectly! I still adore her name, and when she is older, if she doesn't get taken seriously, she can always shorten it to Kay, lol.
It seems very flimsy as a name. When I meet a little Kaylee, I think that her parents might as well have named her "Cutie" or "Jellybean". I don't think it's a name that will be taken seriously on an adult.
Haha... Jellybean.
The name Kaylee, or any variations of Kaylee, means celebration. The name is from the Gaelic Ceilidh which is a social gathering.
