"I named my daughter Kellie (with ie) so of course I love the name. She is 17 and there is not one other Kellie in her class. I like how the popularity of it died down awhile ago. When she was born, there were literally no other "Kellies"....it's a beautiful name! My daughter is Kellie Anne btw." May. 22, 2019:
"My name is Kellie. I love it. The "ie" spelling makes the name look prettier and although it can be annoying when people misspell it, I agree with a previous comment in that it does show you who cares enough to spell it correctly. However, it is almost impossible to find personalized things with it spelled with an "ie."" Mar. 6, 2012:
"My name is Kellie. I LOVE my name! Its so unique and like no one has it spelt Kellie. I hate it though when people spell it with a y. I also hate that stores NEVER have anything peronalized with an 'ie'. One time someone goe me this xmas ornament spelt Kelli I just added the e. LOL! Love my name!" Jan. 15, 2012:
"Well obviously after the many comments below me, you know that Kellie is a name that probably everyone tends to spell with a Y. Yes it bothers me but I love my name. Some nicknames I have are Kellz and Kelloggs. Kelloggs was an idea from one of my wierd friends that wanted to come up with a unique name. I think it sounds awkward and I hate when they my friends call me that. I'd rather much MUCH prefer Kells." Feb. 1, 2011:
"My name is Kellie. I loveee my name<33 I hate when my friends and family spell it wrong but it doesnt bother me when teachers spell it wrong. I really like IE i think that Y is kinda boring. IE is unique. and i lovee itt(:" May. 21, 2010:

"My name is Kellie. The most annoying thing in the whole world is when people spell it with a Y. I have had my English teacher since september and to this day he spells it with a Y when I constantly remind him that it is with an IE. I like the IE becuase it is fun and the Y is boring to me. But thats jsut me, I think that most names that end with a Y look better with an ie. but thats my opinion." Mar. 30, 2009:

"You've heard of Anne withan E, I'm Kellie with an IE! I love my name it is so pretty and it is spelled the girl way! There are basically only 3 things that bug me about my name, #1 People spell wrong all the time,and it drives me insane! #2 I can't even find a pencil with my name spelled correctly, unless I order it special or write it on myself. #3 it rhymes with every thing, Smelly Kellie ate too much jelly so she has a big fat belly, LOL!
Oh yeah, and another cool thing about our name is that Kellie Martin (movie star) spells hers the same way! I just love Kell IE!" Mar. 20, 2008:
"Of course... My name is Kellie too! spelled with the IE! I love it! I get soooooo P.Oed.when people dont speel it right(and then usually spell it wrong)! I think it's creative and unique (like me!)I was on wikipedia when i saw that the original way to spell Kellie is kellie(not Kelly!) Thanx for listening!" Dec. 11, 2006:
"MY name is Kellie...yeah with the IE! I think its a unique way of spelling Kelly. As everyone may see now a days its usually spelled with a "y" buti like "ie" just the way it is. Its more to my personality." Dec. 1, 2006:
"my name is kellie . i hate pplz spelling it rong i like it so all you peeps can get stuffed if they dont like it" Nov. 21, 2006:
"I love the spelling with an IE, I think ending it in Y is a surname & looks boring. Kellie is a lot more sexy!" Nov. 6, 2006:
"In a sport i played, there we 2 kell [1 y and 1 ie spelling]. So we became known as kelly Y and kellie IE." Oct. 11, 2006:

"I like my name. It can be annoying when people always say "It's with a y, right?" But I still like it." Jun. 1, 2006:
"I love my name! When I was 10 years old I changed the spelling from Kelly with a "y" to Kellie with an "ie". I loved the fact that it was different and thought that it looked much prettier that way. Now it is officially spelt with an "ie" on my passport, license and all other frms of identification. I love when people sing the Famous Kelly Song from Cheers to me...."Kelly, Kelly, Kelly, Kelly...kell...yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy? because she is Kelly, Kelly, Kelly,Kelly" and that's when I can correct them and say its Kellie with an "ie"!" Apr. 4, 2006:
"Got the " i e" thing too. Still separated me from the other Kelly's. Don't see it used much anymore which is great!!!" Feb. 16, 2006:
"This is my name and I love it. I personnally love the unique spelling of it, as well. It is difficult at times, though, when everyone automatically spells it Kelly, but it is something you get used to. I still wouldn't change the spelling. I think it looks much nicer written out and you don't see it too often so it turns into a conversation piece when people find out how my name is spelled." Jul. 26, 2005:

"Didn't meet another girl named Kellie (she was Kelly) until I was 14. It was very uncommon for a girl to be named Kellie, especially spelled with an IE at the end.

Every Kellie spelled this way should appreciate it and realize we are unque" May. 5, 2006:
"A pain to have this name in the 80s. There was at least one other Kelly in my class always so I ended up as Kellie Jo. I've accepted that it's never going to be spelled correctly by others, but it's my name and I do like why my parents picked this spelling" Feb. 20, 2006:
"This is my name, also. This school year I have a teacher that calls me "Kellie with an i.e." He said this was a weird way to spell it. Everyone always spells it wrong. It gets annoying. At my work finally there was someone who spelled her name the same as mine." Aug. 28, 2005:
