Comment left May 31, 2012: "I am really hoping to name my baby this, but I'm thinking of spelling it Kaleeya for two reasons. I'm hoping if it's spelled as phonetically as possible, people will be more likely to pronounce it correctly. The othe reason is that my father's name is Lee and I'd love to honor him. I have a name that is mispronounced and mixed up with other names all the time, so I'd like to name my daughter something beautiful that is also easy for teachers, etc to get right when they read it."

Comment left Nov 29, 2010: "My daughter was just born yesterday at 2:46 pm. Her mom and I named her Kaliyah. I have always been a huge (such an understatement lol) fan of Aaliyah and fell in love with the name Kaliyah. Luckily her mom let me name her lol. She is so adorable. She was born with the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck and she managed to tie it in a pretty good knot while still in the womb. Thank God she is perfectly healthy and the meaning "Beautiful Soul" fits her perfectly. Our little miracle. This new dad is going to spoil her like nobody's business :-)" (Report as inappropriate)
