While pregnant with my first, I really liked the name Kaily. My husband and had thought that we had found the name. After giving it some thought and realizing that there were just too many Kailys in within our family, friends and community, we realized it wasn't for us. The sound stuck and we were soon on a search to find the right name that started with K and ended with the "ee" sound. Soon enough, Kesli was born.
