Personal experiences with the name Cai: | Edit

my daughter is named cai. it is truly a beautiful name, especially when paired with a longer middle name.it sounds like an exotic name and it's short enough that you don't need a nickname.

Cai is the name I go by so people can pronounce my name. It's a great name and super short, but I recommend it as a nickname and not a fullname
