"This is my name (Kahlil) and the way I tell people how to pronounce it is to say the Kah part like the cu in cup and the lil part is like eel with an l stuck on the front of it. It is always spelled wrong and said wrong. I have never met anyone with the same name, but I hear of male athletes with the name. I am a female with this name and have never heard of another female with the name." Jul. 13, 2005:

"I chose the name Kahlil for my son, born in 01. I pronounce his name as it's spelled because I don't particularly care for it being pronounced Kahleel. People have called him Cleo, Kleel, u name it. But I love his name and how it is spelled. Most people put the h before the a, but "kah" means spirit to the Egyptians..I thought that was deep, so he's "Kahlil"! Peace to all the Kahlil's!"
