Etymology & Historical Origin - Kailee

Here we go again. Another Kaylee name. Really, all of these names are American inventions, but we’re feeling generous today and will give it some Celtic currency. Presumably Kaylee is derived from similar Irish names such as Keelin or Keela. Keelin comes from the Gaelic “Caoilfhinn” (pronounced kale + in) which translates into “slender” (caol) and “white, fair, pure” (finn). Keela, on the other hand, comes from the Gaelic word “cadhla” which means a girl “so beautiful that only poets can describe her.” (i.e., a rare beauty). The names Kaylee and Kailey are of such recent origin that it’s difficult to ascertain the true etymological elements, particularly since it occurs in so many different spelling variations. It is also believed to be the transferred use of the anglicized Irish surname “O’Caollaidhe” (descendent of Caollaidhe). So we’re back to the meaning (caol) slender.

Popularity of the Name Kailee

Kailee is not one of the more popular spellings of the “Kaylee” family of female names. Kaylee is by far and away the most preferred spelling followed by (in order of popular usage): Kayleigh, Kailey, Kaylie, Caylee, Kailee, Kaleigh, Caleigh and Kayley. So Kailee is currently the 6th most popular spelling variant of this highly trendy name. There are now so many variations of this name it’s fallen into the “kreatively kutesy kategory”. Honestly, at this point, we wonder how parents even decide. One thing we know for certain: any girl named Kailee/Kaylee, etc. is destined to go through life confirming and reconfirming the spelling of her name. This may not seem like a big deal, but trust us. People with “kreative” name spellings assure us it’s a nuisance. Just something to consider before naming your child. The Kaylee/Kailee names are definitely cute – not sophisticated or mature – but darling and sweet sounding. Unfortunately, this is a name that’s coming dangerously close to a cliché. Or should we say “klichéd”?
