  • "My daughter's name is Caleigh pronounced like Kaylee. My husband's family is Scottish and we wanted a Gaelic name. It's suppose to be spelled like Ceilidh (a Gaelic spelling) but this is just too confusing for people so we choose this form of spelling because we liked that it is still unique and I love unique names that are not too crazy." Jun. 11, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "My Daughter's name is Caleigh (we pronounce it "Cali") I love the name but, a lot of people pronounce it differently...anything from Kay-lee to Kelly. Its unreal but, the name is unique and beautiful just like my Daughter. She isnt old enough yet to have to correct anyone but, I hope she admires her unique name as much as her Father and I do. No matter which way you pronounce it its a beautiful name with a magical meaning!" Sep. 7, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "i think that to many people put to much thought into something. I don't understand how someone can get Caylee from Caleigh unless you spell it like this Cayleigh. Caleigh is a different way of spelling Callie. I guess maybe putting two L's would make it more understanding like cal-leigh but i like it with one l. In my thoughts i don't think it take place for spelling anything other then that. Unless spelled with an i or y or maybe even an e after the a.. like cai-y-e-leigh then you would have kaylee.. Just my thought..." Jan. 6, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "my name is caleigh, pronounced as cali and i've been cali for 22 years of life. to those who think that's wrong or to those who think it being said as kaylee is wrong, you're wrong. a name is given to a child by the parents and how they say it is how they intend it to be. take kirsten dunst, mostly kirsten is pronounced as kursten, but she's been brought up to say its keersten. it's like parents who name their child madysen instead of madison, it doesn't make them not a madison just because it's spelled different. so whether you're caleigh said as cali or kaylee, be proud of your name and don't let anybody tell you how it should be said."

I've never disliked my name, and I often get complimented on it. It has also sparked a number of nicknames (especially now that I'm in university and everyone is so quick to try and shorten your name, or even re-name you). I've been shortened to Cal most recently, but I still like the full version of my name better... it's a little more vibrant and lively as far as I'm concerned.

  • "Our six-year-old daughter is Caleigh. We always pronounced it "Callie" because I had a close friend with that name and wanted to name our daughter after her, but just liked the spelling "Caleigh" better. Poor thing, now that she's in school, everyone calls her Kaylee, and I was starting to feel bad about it, but then I found everyone's comments here - they're very comforting. And I suppose the dilemma is not too horribly different from Andrea's -- i.e., is it "An-DRE-a" or "AN-drea"? From the postings above, it looks like the chosen pronunciation is half Callie and and half Kaylee, so I'm not going to angst over it any more! It is what it is!"

  • "Caleigh Suankum struggles with her beautiful name all the time. Her school, in Honolulu, is not accustomed to Gaelic names and mispronounce it in a way that is just too funny: Cull.Lay or Kaleej...do you believe that. Her twin sister Delia...well they call her: DALEYA...they make us laugh. Mahalo! Please google the girls at Celtic Keiki to see some halapinos...Haole (white - Irish) Filipinos....aloha" Jan. 25, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "My daughter's nickname is Caleigh. Her given name was Rebecca Leigh. Her biological mom named her, and we got her as a four month old infant. We didn't want to change her name, but everyone in our family goes by nicknames; hence we combined the "ca" from the end of Rebecca and Leigh. She goes by Caleigh and would like to change her name legally, but that would make her Caleigh Leigh!" Jan. 4, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Caleigh! I love my name because it's spelled different and it looks pretty on paper. However, it is frustrating somtimes because no one ever pronounces it right. Whenever there is a substitute in my class, you can guarantee they won't say it correctly...it's always calli or caleah. Everyone not only pronounces it wrong but spells it wrong as well. Even my close friends spell it wrong. They always put the "i" before "e" because of the infamous spelling rule. One time, even my own brother spelled it incorrectly. Even though sometimes having the name Caleigh is frustrating, it is well worth because it's a beautiful name." Dec. 21, 2007: Report as inappropriate
