Comments and insights on the name Kaileigh: | Edit

This is a combination of the Hawaiian name Kai (meaning "the sea") and the common name Leigh.

The "ai" makes the "I" sound and therefore the name can also be prounounced like "Kylie." My daughter is Kaileigh and is often called "Kaylee" she hates that they mispronounce her name and is quick to correct whomever is speaking! I love the uniqueness of the spelling and love the meaning of the name.

Personal experiences with the name Kaileigh: | Edit

I love my name and always receive compliments on the spelling, but I often find my name spelled wrong on awards and such and I also find people having a hard time pronouncing it. Some examples of these mispronunciations are Callie, Kylie, Ky-eel-lee, Hayley, Raleigh, Collie, and Kayla. But, I like to think that these mispronunciations are just because people are stupid. But I still love my name and wouldn't change it for the world.
