Kylie Name Meaning & Origin

Kylie

Pronunciation: KIY-lee (key)

This was an Australian name, but it fit perfectly into American tastes. So when American parents encountered the name via Aussie entertainer Kylie Minogue, they jumped on it. There is no standard spelling in the U.S., but Kylie and Kylee are the most common.
