Etymology & Historical Origin - Karlee

Karlee is a modern Americanized respelling of Carly, from Carla, the feminine version of the German male name Karl/Carl, which itself is the German version of the English name Charles. The Germanic “karl” means “free man” so Karlee would henceforth be interpreted as “free woman”. In ancient times the Germanic term “karl” denoted a “free” man but not one of nobility. Eventually Karla and Carla developed as the feminine forms of Karl and, in more modern times (especially among Americans), the name Karlee and Carlee came along.

Popularity of the Name Karlee

Karlee first appeared on the U.S. female naming charts in 1991, so this is a pretty modern name. And it’s also pretty American (although Karlee is occasionally used in Canada and Australia). The name hasn’t done much on the charts other than to settle at levels of pretty low usage. This is a name with a lot of competition so we don’t expect her to do much better. Just consider all of the spelling variations available on the charts today: Carlee, Carleigh, Carley, Carlie, Karley, Karli, Karlie, Karly and Karlee. And that doesn’t even include the standard Karla and Carla. Karlee with a “K” and “ee” suffix is definitely one of the more “kutesy” spellings of this modern American name. These Karlee, Kaylee, Kailee, Kynlee names may be a little overplayed at this point. Mutilated spellings of traditional or even invented names has become so commonplace they’re a dime a dozen. In the case of Karlee, there are apparently nine choices – a little ridiculous at this point.
