  • "Our daughter's name is Kelby. I found it in a baby book and never heard of it before. We've noticed a lot of boys have this name. She's only 11 months and I've experienced people calling her Kelly a lot as well. Needless to say I think it's a darling name that could be used for either boys or girls."

  • "This is my sons name and I find everyone loves it. Its different but not weird. A few people will call him Kolby but I think that is from peoples penmanship. I know of only one other person with the name kelby who is actually from the same small town other than that I have never heard of anyone knowing another Kelby."

  • "I have the name Kelby. I am 13 and live in Utah. I have had a good experience with the name Kelby, but people often call me either Kelly or Kirby. I have met only three other people with the name Kelby. You pronounce it "Ke-l-b-ie"." Apr. 28, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love the name. I named my second son Kelby in 2000. I know it's a unisex name but did some research and found it mostly used a boys name. Yet with that most doctor's offices, schools, etc...assume that Kelby is a girls name." Feb. 25, 2006: Report as inappropriate
