"My name is Kaley and I have had heard people call me "Kal-ee","Kayla","Kelly","Karley", even Hailey. The true way one can pronounce this name is Kay-lee. I have met around one other person in my life with the same name as mine except their name was spelled "Kayley". I have also had people spell my name very oddly, like "Kailey","Kayley","Kailee" etc. But never the less it is a nice name and I can't imagine myself named something else." Apr. 17, 2014:

"Funny, my comment could be identical to the one left Dec 15, 2008... I was born in 1987 as well and have seen the road in Orlando you speak of though my parents never knew it existed either.
I have always loved my name, but hated the fact no one could pronounce or spell it correctly. I never heard anyone called Kaylee until I was sixteen and the spelling has been always been different. Truly shocked there are so many of us!
Fortunately now people can at least correctly pronounce my name. The spelling always takes them by surprise on the contrary. I like the meaning because I have always been slender :)" Aug. 17, 2010:

"My name is Kaley :) I have never met anyone with the same name as me.. I had no idea there were so many people named Kaley.. My mom came up with my name. My Dad liked Haley and my mom liked Kayla so she mixed them and got Kaley. People always pronounce my name wrong.. I HATE IT. My doctor acctually said it kA-lee for years but now she says it right which is kay-lee but spelt Kaley. I think that it is spelt simple and shouldn't be hard to say right but people always get it wrong :/" May. 17, 2010:
"Wow! My name is ALSO Kaley. :) I love my name so much. Supposedly, my mother found the name in a book, but it was spelt "Caliegh". She changed it to Kaley. I've never met any Kaley who spells it the same way I do. When saw the name "Kaley Cuoco" I totally was amazed. Here are some meanings I found for Kaley:
Slender or Slender One
To Party or Celebrate
I love my name so much. SO glad I'm not the only one!" Jan. 4, 2010:
"It's a cool name. And I was born in '92 too! Took me a while to actually like my name but I do. My mom found it in a reader's digest and liked it and named me!" Dec. 15, 2009:
"My name is Kaley (: and i had no idea there was that many people with the same name as me!! thats crazy!?!?" Nov. 18, 2009:
"My name is Kaley as well. I've always loved my name because it's not common in the Hispanic community! My mom got it as a twist off of the name Kayla. She had never before heard of someone with my name. I've actually only met about 3 other kaleys (but not spelled k-a-l-e-y). I was born in 91.
The only people who say it wrong when sounding it out are those who speak primarily Spanish. Those people end up saying k-ah-LAY [ah is pronounced like when the doctor says to open wide and say ah]. Actual pronounciation of Kaley is "KAY-lee" not "kay-LEE"
The thought of someone else having my name actually angers me but if I met you first and find out later I am jazzed about it!" Nov. 17, 2009:
"My name is Kaley too!! :) People have a hard time pronouncing it though, but i think it's spelled the simplest way! I always say, "Like HALEY with a K!"" Oct. 9, 2009:

"My name is Kaley! I love my name! I was born in '91 and now live about 45 mins away from Kaley Ave. in Orlando, but my parents didn't even know there was a road when I was born. No one can pronouce it or spell it right and it's very simple to me too. I love my name because of how it's spelled and I've been told it means "to party or to celebrate" in Irish which is perfect! I've met lots of Kaley's but few that spell it my way. There;s actually another one in my school that spells its Kaley...maybe because I live near Orlando! Haha, i love my name!" Apr. 13, 2009:

"WHOA! My name's Kaley. I thought i was so rare! I hated it for the longest time. I'm 13. And ive always searched for other people with my name! I was born in '96. Named after a "sign" in Florida. My research shows a street, park, school, etc. in Orlando. Why can no one spell or pronounce this name right? It's SO simple. It's actually the most logical way to spell it using like, phonics. o.O OMG, this is so awesome!" Feb. 22, 2009:

"Well, this is my name. I am 14 so I was born in 1991. This name was pretty popular then. Yes, people do pronounce AND spell it wrong. The correct way to pronounce it is like so: K Lee or Kay Lee. I really like my name. I like it because it is unique and not a whole lot of people have this name. I have never in my life met anyone named Kaley. I have seen people on TV named
Kaley but I have never met anyone named Kaley.

"My name is Kaley! EVERYONE spells it wrong - and i don't know why because I think that it's a simpler spelling...kayleigh and those are trying a bit too hard...if you sound 'kaley' out properly it does sound like kaley!

"My name is spelt Kaley. People spell or pronounce it wrong pretty much regularly. Even my teachers who have been teaching me for 3 years STILL spell it wrong. It doesn't annoy me. I like the way it's spelt because it is pretty unique and one thing... Is 'normaler' a word? Haha Jk." Nov. 29, 2007:
"My name is Kaley! I love my name and how it's how its spelled. Me and my friend Kaylee always have a fight on which name is spelled normaler. Mine is! Which do you think???" Nov. 27, 2007:
"My name is Kaley and I was born in 1988. I guess it was somewhat uncommon then, but its popularity rose in the 90s. I have met quite a few girls with the same name as me, but most of them usually spell it Kaylee. I often still find people who pronounce my name wrong and spell it completely different than I do. My Dad was the one who named me when he saw an exit sign in Orlando, FL that said Kaley Avenue. He instantly fell in love with it and I suppose everyone else did too because the name is booming today! :)" Nov. 26, 2006:
"This is my name. I was born in 86 and the name was very rare then. I have known two other people with the same name, both were spelled different. You say it Kay Lee, but don't pronounce it like two words. I was told that it means "beloved" , a history teacher once told me that in Scottish it meant a party but I couldn't tell if he was joking or not. I have also heard that it meant a farm by the spring. Overall I like my name because it is unique and suits me well." Oct. 26, 2006:
