Comments about the name Kali
Comment left Mar 04, 2013: "my daughters name is Kali and we pronounce it the Indian way of Kah-lee, emphasis on the Lee. I LOVE this goddess for a variety of reasons. she is strong and a lot of people fear her, but she is also the divine mother and the goddess of time and change. she is the mother of all and she never lies to her children, she's always honest and allows them free will. as the goddess of destruction one can only know that in order to create sometimes you must destroy. one state in India name their daughters Kali because they know the true meaning of this deity and respect and revere it. my daughter embodies the True meaning and is the most lovable creature ever. she will growgrow up to embody her name and love it as much as I do I'm sure <3" (Report as inappropriate)

Comment left Dec 05, 2011: "Guess what? My name is Kali too. Crazy. Pronounced Kaylee. Though actually The original name is pronounced KAH-lee. I love the name. The goddesses' worshipers fear AND love her like a mother. And if your Christian, the story of Lilith isn't in your cannon, so it wouldn't really matter anyway. Names are names and I feel blessed and I think my name is too. Suck it." (Report as inappropriate)

Comment left Jul 22, 2011: "My Duaghter is 10 and her name is Kalyrah "Ka-leer-uh" but we call her kaly "cali" for short. everyone calls her kelly at school and this drives me nuts. I agave her the name because Kalyrah is a gaelic name that means beautiful. and I wanted her to have a unique name like mine "deirdrah" to make her unique. and she is but her name is not kelly! or kaylee! its kaly" (Report as inappropriate)
Comment left Jul 10, 2011: "My name is Kali. I love my name. I'm not sure why it being the name of a Hindu goddess of creation and destruction would be seen as a bad thing...I think it is bad ass. My name is pronounced Kay-lee, as that is the correct pronunciation. If you want your baby's name to be pronounced Cali like California, for goodness sakes spell it Callie or Kallie, as is correct in the English language." (Report as inappropriate)

Comment left Apr 17, 2011: "On the odd occasion it is pronounced wrongly as "Kay-lee", as I much preferred Kali pronounced as in "California". I've called my daughter this and don't regret it for a second. Love the name." (Report as inappropriate)
Comment left Nov 08, 2010: "My name is Kali. Pronounced like 'Cali'(california). I like and prefer it over the (kay-lee) version. The majority of people who pronounce my name say it as kay-lee. A friend of mine also has the name Kali (pronounced kay-lee). We attend different schools but everyone calls her by the 'california' pronounciation. We get called by the opposite pronounciations and wonder if we should have lived different lives! =D" (Report as inappropriate)

Comment left May 18, 2010: "MY NAME IS KALI AND I SUGGEST THAT UNLESS YOU ARE A WORSHIPPING/PRACTICING PAGAN, THAT NO ONE NAME THEIR CHILD THIS NAME. IT WAS AS AN ADULT THAT I FOUND OUT THAT THE NAME IS EVIL AND WILL BRING NOTHING BUT SADNESS TO THE LIFE OF ONE WITH THAT NAME. IT BELONGS TO AN EVIL INDIAN GODDESS AND NAMES HAVE MEANINGS PEOPLE. THEY CAN BLESS OR CURSE YOU. DON'T LET ANYONE FOOL YOU OR TELL YOU OTHERWISE. SHE IS THE BLACK GODDESS AND EVEN HER WORSHIPPERS FEAR HER. KALI IS ONE OF ABOUT 33 NAMES FOR LILITH. LILITH IS THE FORMER HUMAN WOMAN TURNED DEMONESS AND REPORTEDLY, ADAM'S FIRST WIFE BEFORE ELOHIM GAVE ADAM EVE AS A WIFE. EVE IS ADAM'S 2ND WIFE. RESEARCH THIS TO SEE FOR YOURSELF. PEACE."
