  • "I love this name, it's majestic and strong as well as spunky and new. With the overflow of Kaylas and Kaidens we get now and days, it's nice to see just a simple Kay. I have a character in book I'm writing who's name is Kae. However, I do not recommend the "K" "A" "E" spelling for an actual child." Jul. 6, 2016: Report as inappropriate

  • "A male Kay here. My mother wanted a simple name and what she considered a unisex name and settled on Kay long before she knew if I was a girl or boy." Aug. 19, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Kayan and I'm a girl, but close friends call me Kay for short, so there's no mistake with the 'e'. With or without the 'e' I think its cool either way!" Jul. 4, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "Kay is actually my middle name and that's how you spell it if i would ever have kids i would love having "kay" in the name! Like Mikayla" Jul. 14, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "'Kay' as a name is great and sounds unique.I am a boy and my name is Kay,people often get confused as to how it is spelled when i tell them about my name..But i have no problem with that,as it gets ME noticed :-)" Oct. 17, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "My middle name is Kaye. It's also my grandma's middle name, and I fully intend to give my future daughter the middle name also. (Notice that in the movie "Sword in the Stone" the idiot step-brother "Sir" Kay is a guy...its techniqually a guy name...who cares though?) I think the name Kaye is more popular for girls now days." Aug. 25, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "I was named Kay after my Auntie. We are originally from Scotland-when I came to the US I found that most people either insist on calling me Katie or Kate , or they insist my name has to be "short" for something. It is also funny that most seem to think it should or needs and 'e' on the end of it. I will say though, there are others of us out there under 60 who are simply "Kay". In fact as fates would have it the lady who stitched my name onto some mickey mouse ears for me was also named Kay without an "e". :)" Feb. 5, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "Young people do not hear Kay when I tell them my name -they assume it is Kate. It is now something of a foreign name I think - and I wonder if it was ever used as a girl's name before the 20's. An odd little fad there for a few decades but it does really date me." Jan. 1, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "I named my daughter Kay, after the letter, because so many people in both my family and my husband's family have names that start with the letter K. When I was still pregnant and told people what I wanted to name my child I got a lot of comments on the shortness of the name, the lack of creativity, the spelling (no E on the end), and lots of "better" name suggestions. No one liked it at all! Now my daughter is 3 and everyone loves her name. Kind of funny how that worked out! There are a lot of other girls with names that contain "Kay" such as Makayla, Kayla, and Kaylee but my Kay is the only one under age 60 that is just Kay!" Dec. 28, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "My first name is Kay with no "e". My parents also decided to drop the "e" after my middle name Annett. When said together "Kay Annet" it's OK, but I feel both names really date me. I have also had to explain that my name is not short for another name or a nickname. I really don't like my name, never have." Apr. 13, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "My dad is named Kay after the knight of the round table of King Arthur." Apr. 8, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "Keep these articles ciomng as they've opened many new doors for me." Jun. 17, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Kay and yes a lot of people pronounce it wrong and often think is not my name, that is just a short way to say it. :/ like someone always though it was Kayla O_O" Jul. 27, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "i am a boy called Kaye...It was my granpa's name....I live in italy and no one understend my name...i have to repeat always!!!but i never found anybody with this name...and it makes me unique!!!" Nov. 25, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Kay - no E on the end! I always get - Kate, Kayleigh, Kacie & Fay, and have to over pronouce my name in "Queens English" as my accent is quite broad. Do any other Kay's get tired of thinking someone has asked them something when you here "Hey" or "ok"? It's most annoying when you find yourself looking up and down a street in your local area when you here an "Ay" sound to see if somebody is calling your name!" Nov. 4, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "My Grandfathers name is Kay. He is a great man and i hope to emulate him in many ways, i will most likely name my boy Kay." Jun. 11, 2006: Report as inappropriate
